We finally made it out to Birch Aquarium. Kennedy has loved the few fish tanks she has seen so we thought the aquarium would be a hit. Unfortunately, Kennedy was not in the mood. Maybe it was too close to nap time, maybe there were too many kids around, maybe she just wasn't feeling it that day, but our time at the aquarium ended up being short and not too sweet. We'll just have to try again another time.Read More
When my cousin's girlfriend asked on facebook for referrals for maternity photographers I automatically commented "me!!!" Knowing full well that they lived in Arizona, I did not think I would have the opportunity to photograph this special time of their lives. But to my (pleasant) surprise she sent me a message saying she would love a San Diego beach maternity shoot! Fast-forward 3 weeks later and they were here, and ready for photos! These two are going to be awesome parents and I am beyond excited for them to experience the joys (and struggles) of parenthood!!Read More
This adorable couple drove down from Orange County last Friday go get some great downtown shots near the new library. Shooting downtown is always great because there is always something new just around the corner. I love the variety of textures that can be found just a short walk. We probably walked about 3 or 4 blocks and had so many opportunities for great backdrops.Read More
Hearts are my favorite! So naturally, I love Valentine's Day. I wanted to do a cute little Valentine's Day shoot with my little loves, so I made a few props and we drove up to Marian Bear park. I love this little spot. It doesn't look like we are in beachy San Diego, so it's a good change of pace for a photoshoot. My awesome husband played my assistant and chased the little rug rat down and put her in the perfect spots. Thanks Honey! I love you!
We love to go on walks. Almost everyday we take a stroll around Little Italy or wander down by the bay. Ever since Kennedy started walking, she walks along side us like a big girl! But...she is soooooo slow! It takes us 20 minutes to go 2 blocks. She likes to stop and pick up EVERYTHING!! Leaves, trash, feathers, cigarette butts...it's gross. She isn't the biggest fan of her stroller, so I decided to get her a little push car. She absolutely LOVES it! She honks her horn and waves at all the people passing by. It's adorable! BONUS: it keeps all the junk out of her tiny little hands!
These little cuties are their mamas are some of the best people around! I've know these girls since we were teenagers and we all had our first babies within 6 months of each other. It's so awesome to have girlfriends who are going through the same ups and downs of motherhood. Mostly we just laugh at each other's stories and laugh at the silly things our kids do. Getting together with them is just as much of a playdate for us as it is for the kids and I love it!
