Why???

…is it always the BOYS that have the long and luscious lashes?

I’m going through all my pictures from Hume Lake right now and saw this one of Cooper.  I’m wondering why it’s the boys that seem to get all the good lash genes. :)

Great minds…

…think alike.  You know what they say.

When I downloaded this picture, I loved it.  There was just something about it that worked.  I took it right after Maile fell and hurt her knee.  Jackson had no idea what was going on and Hansel just looked at me with a knowing expression.
Anyway, for some reason I love it when clients choose to order prints that are my favorites.  This print is enlarged on a storyboard in their home, which just makes me smile.

Hair tip :)

These two are absolute sweethearts.  I’m so bummed to miss their wedding!  Not only did they give me an amazing photo session, but Joanna taught me how to do my hair like she does.  It takes practice, but you just wrap a small piece of hair around two fingers (like a pin curl) then take your flat iron and squish the hair in between for a few seconds.

Thanks for the tip, Joanna…I love your hair!

Connection

I’ve always been fascinated with people.  I love hearing someone’s story and finding the connections that we all share as humans.  I have found that I am sentimental in just about everything I do because of it.  It’s what makes me daydream about the 50′s housewife that was so excited to move into her new Long Beach home.  The same home that I’ll make my own 60 years later.  I imagine what her life was like and what she felt on her first night in the new home.
Photography is my way of connecting with the people around me.  I love getting to know you and giving you images that you’ll look at and remember that moment in time.  How you felt.  What your life was like.

One of the most memorable times in a person’s life is their wedding day.  All of the details make it blur together, so I love a picture like this when the bride and groom slow down to take it all in.

Newborns

I love newborns.  There’s something about the excitement of a new family member.  The way that you think you know how to prepare yourself as a parent and then you’re totally overwhelmed…in a good way!  I love the glimpse that newborns give of the person they will become.  Little looks and mannerisms melt my heart.

I love his raised eyebrows and slight smirk. :)

A Post A Day

We are gone this week at Hume Lake, so I figured I’d schedule a post a day while I was away.  I’ll keep it simple with one picture and a few words.

While I’m waiting to build my client base in southern CA, I’m spending my time updating just about everything.  I’ve got all new products, brochures, business cards, gift cards…you name it– it’s getting a makeover!  Included in the renovation is my blog.  I’m coming up on a year with typepad and I just want something more.  I want bigger pictures and a custom background.  I’m pretty sure this will be the picture that will grace the top of the new blog (coming out sometime in Aug). 
After I return from my week at Hume, I will have tons of fun pictures to share!

Checking out the local parks

I took the kids out the other day to check out some of the local parks.  As you can see from the pictures, when I put my 3 kids in close vicinity it gets a little crazy!

Baby Olivia

I got the chance to photograph Olivia in her second week of life.  She was quite the little angel…letting me move her around, repositioning and such to get the perfect newborn poses.  I love this stage because they curl up exactly as you imagine they looked in the womb.  It’s simply amazing.

There’s nothing like a newborn smile.  It’s as if Olivia knew that this was her photo-op.

Here’s one of Jilly in the jacuzzi (or cajuzzi as she calls it) at the very end of the day.

At one point Brent and his brother were throwing the kids into the pool.  It quickly turned into who can be thrown the highest…yikes.
