I met with Molly and her family yesterday. Molly was the winner of my Facebook baby contest I held last month. I did her newborn pictures last April and haven’t seen her since. I couldn’t believe how much she has grown.  She was quite the little explorer. Her big sister, Finnley, was as adorable as ever and was more than willing to pose for my camera.
Here’s a sneak peek of our evening yesterday!

I met up with Cynthia and David today for a quick, last minute maternity session. She is already 38 weeks, and looks SO amazing! Seriously, her belly is perfect. I am looking forward to meeting their little girl in the next couple weeks.

Enjoy your sneak peek and thank you for braving through the swarm of ants in the field I dragged you to! :)

I love this family. This was my 4th photo session with them and I feel like we are friends now. : ) They just had their 2nd baby, and their new little family couldn’t be any more perfect. Mom has her hands full with 2 under 2!

Here are a few of my favorites of little T!

Little Khloe is the first baby I’ve photographed with such bright red hair. She is the daughter of good friends of ours, and the youngest of 3 girls! They sure have their hands full in that house. She turned one last month and I was able to get some great photos of her to remember her on her first birthday.

Jenn: I'm a sucker for a redhead and that one is just too cute! That last picture is awesome!

ig: This is a really good tip particularly to those fresh to the blogosphere. Brief but very precise info… Many thanks for sharing this one. A must read post!

I could have cuddled this sweet sleeping beauty all afternoon. She slept like a dream for our entire session. Big thanks to mom who booked me early enough to get these sweet dreamy shots and make our session fly right by!

Here are a few of my many favorites!

ig: Very good article. I definitely appreciate this website. Continue the good work!

Meet Audrey. She is the daughter of some friends of ours that we have not seen in way too long. I couldn’t believe I just met her for the first time this month when I took her 1 year photos. She is just an adorable mix of Chrissie and Joel, and has the cutest personality. She totally hammed it up for my camera!

I loved shooting Maria last week. Her belly is gorgeous and I could hardly believe she was only 3 weeks away from delivering. She looked absolutely amazing. I cannot wait to meet her baby girl in the next couple weeks.

_mg_2926_mg_2875bw_mg_2914I loved her dog, Jimmy Choo, who made an appearance in the end. So adorable!

My niece, Kennedy, turned 1 in July. I swear it felt like I was just taking her newborn portraits 3 or 4 months ago. I have loved watching her grow this year and can’t wait to see what her second year of life brings :)

<3 you baby girl!

I haven’t blogged the entire month of July. I apologize! I am going to try to get all caught up tonight and tomorrow.

Before I share any client sessions, I am going to share a few recent pics of my own little ones. Eric turned 3 in May. I can’t believe this amazing little boy came into my life 3 years ago. Time is really flying by.

Kingston is now 10 months old and is on the move! I cannot believe my baby boy will be 1 in just 2 short months!

He was recently featured in Inland Empire Family’s magazine! :)

We also found out in June that we are expecting baby number 3! Due 2/8/2011!

Now let’s see if I can get back in the swing of blogging!
