Parents-to-be

I love doing maternity shoots. There is so much excitement and wonder, love and warmth to be captured. When I was asked to photograph a fellow photographer, I was flattered and nervous all at the same time. I wanted to do a great job for my friend and colleague. We did the shoot in her Malibu home and I love the photos we captured. Here are some photos we took:

Finally back to blogging!

I used to be so good about blogging but since going back to work almost 9 months ago I have not been able to carve out the time to post. So I will try to catch up on all the shoots I have done. The first post was my first shoot when I went back to work last summer. Everything about the shoot was wonderful from the family to their stunning home, the lighting and of course the photos turned out just as I had hoped. Here are some photos that I absolutely adore!

My Nursing Coach

During these last few months I have learned so much about myself and I have grown in so many ways since becoming a mom of two. Although it has been challenging beyond words, it has also been so rewarding. I have learned to appreciate the little things in parenthood such as getting two kids down for bed on time or surviving a trip to the grocery store. One aspect of parenthood I have been challenged with during both newborns was breastfeeding. I have a VERY low milk supply and needed help learning how to work with what I have. When my sister introduced me to Linda at My Nursing Coach she was an absolute life saver. My Nursing Coach is a mobile lactation consulting service that comes to you. She is knowledgeable, encouraging, and so thorough in her assistance. She made my nursing experience so much more enjoyable than my first time around. Her mobile service vehicle is fully loaded with the best products and anything you could need. And best of all, you never have to leave your house (a MUST with a newborn baby!) If you are in need of a lactation consultant or are expecting and are not sure how your experience will be, I highly recommend keeping this info on file because you never know when you will need it. Thank you, Linda, for all your support and encouragement during my nursing struggles.

big girl room

To make room for the new baby joining our family, Jaelyn got an upgrade in bedroom size. I wanted to keep the room looking the same as it was with just minor changes so she wouldn’t feel like it was a big change (here is what the first nursery looked like.) Well, the move went seamlessly and the room came out great! Here are some pictures of Jaelyn’s new bedroom:

future rock stars!

Noah & Max are two sweet boys I photographed awhile back when Max was a newborn baby. Now they are big boys who are full of energy and smiles. We started the session at a local park and then went to their home. They love music and playing instruments, firemen and construction sites and trucks…..such boys! These things made for some adorable photos and there were so many cute ones I loved! Here are my favorites from the shoot:

Growing baby boy!

Chase is a baby I photographed as a newborn and now again at almost 4 months old. With a face and smile that could melt your heart, I loved photographing him again! His parents are great friends of mine so it was fun to do the photos and watch them interact with their little cutie. We held the session at the family home and got some really beautiful photos. Here are a handful of my favorites:

Soon to be five.

This beautiful family welcomed me into their home to document a special time in their lives. They are expecting a baby and thought it was a perfect time to capture photos. They had recently moved into a new stunning home which was the perfect place to hold our session. We did a handful of shots indoors and did most of the shoot outdoors in their breathtaking garden. So many beautiful moments, here are a few of my favorites:

sweet little sister.

Meridith was a beautiful baby girl I photographed with her big brother at our newborn baby session. Mom had some adorable hats that we used for the photos and we did a variety of sleep and awake shots in their home. Big brother Luke was 18 months old and had a great smile. We did a handful of photos of the two together and they came out great! Here are some photos from our shoot:
