Here comes the...son.

Ok, ok so kill me. I'm very punny.
But really, folks. I am so happy for this couple. They are just some of the sweetest peeps ever, and they have been waiting for a long while to add to their family. So I'm ecstatic for them as they anticipate the arrival of their little man in Nov. He is due 11.11.11 so I'm kinda hoping he holds out, because what a rockin' awesome birthdate would that be?!?! Congrats you guys. Can't wait to come meet him!

Oh my goodness it was so hot this day, and by the end of our session mama was all but begging to get into the fountain at USF. So, we all did. web9

Growing up.

Love love LOVE this family. They came to our session on 9.11 looking oh so patriotic. This is another family that's been coming back to me for years. I can't believe little man B is 4! I did his newborn pictures like, yesterday. Hope you enjoy the sneak peek Lara!

 Ain't he just the cutest!
I love that so many of my clients lately have wanted pics of mom and dad alone together. I think I can safely say that for most married couples, the last pictures you get taken together are at your wedding. It's so nice to have a tangible reminder of where you've come since then, just the two of you. web4
Just be careful if you decide to kiss your husband on camera. Extreme shock may ensue. web5 web6 web7 web8

Family. Fun.

Add a 1 year old girl, a 3 year old boy, a sweltering hot day and lots of fun, and you get this session. We were afraid the weather was not going to cooperate, but by the end of the session I think dad would have preferred if it opened up pouring. :) Everyone was a great sport, though and I really enjoyed our time together.
As an aside, I need to thank all my awesome clients for being patient with me for the past few weeks. I have been having frequent migraine headaches, and it makes it impossible for me to get on the computer. Not a good thing for editing, proofing, and blogging in this digital world. So I thank all of you because I know you're anxious. Everyone has been so understanding. web1 web2 web3

Brown eyed girl

Sweet Lily was maybe the first newborn I've met with big brown eyes. Very rarely do even babies of hispanic lineage come to me with such brown eyes. She was such a sweet little girl for our session, and once she fell asleep she was out for the count. This session was special since I've known her mama since before I got married, and I photographed this couple's wedding a few years ago. It's such a joy when wedding clients come back with their newborns, and then their families. It jolts me into reality as far as how long I've been loving this job. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this little sweetie as much as I did.

Sweet smile. :)

Just want to pop on and give a sneak peek of these little cuties today. I have 193,758,286 things going on right now, so I'm not going to bore you with my rambling, but I know you're probably here for the pics anyhoo.
Come back {Late} tonight and I'm planning to have some newborn-y goodness up!

Beachy part deux

Here's a few sneak peeks from some of the beach minis I did in August. What a night it was! We were up against some pretty terrible weather all around us, and most of these clients drove all the way down or over in sideways sheeting rain! But our little corner of the beach remained untouched, and it was even rather nice since the cloud cover and breeze kept it cooler than normal. We lucked out. I chose 2 per family to keep it reasonable, but everyone has many more to choose from. Thanks all for braving the weather to come play with me. And everyone else, be on the lookout for more mini session dates coming very soon. The holidays are right around the corner! web13 web12

 I know not everyone will find this image pleasing, but as a photographer and an artist, I am drooling over it. Oh the yummy golden light.... web11 web10 web9 web7 web5
