An old favorite - Children's Photograher Yuma, AZ

My husband and I used to go to this spot when we were dating. We did a lot of walking and jogging there with our dogs. It was a beautiful day and I'm now wondering why I haven't been back sooner.

Sisters - Family Photographer San Diego, CA

I am an only child and I don't know what it's like to have the bond of a sibling. So I love to capture the interaction between siblings. I really hope my girls adore each other as much when they are adults as they do right now!

Last minute Christmas Card Photos - Family Photography San Diego, CA

They are a fellow military family and I had a lot of fun with them. They were really photogenic and easy to work with. I shouldn't admit this but I didn't even pose them in this first shot. I was messing with my camera, looked up and there they were! Thank you, P family!!!

Sea World - Child Photography San Diego CA

We LOVE Sea World!! We are always finding something new to do there. Not that it's new but through her eyes it's new because as she gets older she experiences things in a new way. She has discovered that she loves the jumping water even when it hits her right in the face. So I took the opportunity to get some motion shots for my photography class.

This dolphin was so friendly and hung around for quite a while!! So cool!

The Bike and The Sky - Child Photographer San Diego CA

Not sure which I love more--the pink trike or the blue sky. She just got this and is oh so proud of it! Although she prefers dancing on it over pedaling.

Here are some of a session with the Chunk. She will be 3 months tomorrow. As you can see, big sister wanted to join in the fun. <3

You know you're a freak when . . . - Family Photography San Diego CA

So I was trying to get an outfit from the baby's armoire today when I tripped. I laughed at myself. When my husband asked what was so funny, I said "oh nothing". He said "Don't tell me you put my baby in the armoire for a picture!" This is what I have become: The woman who sticks her kids in strange objects for a good picture. I'm ok with that.
Here's one of both my girls. I really love chub's blue eyes and I hate the shadow on Munch's face but it's cute anyway. I made the mistake of trying to take this near a playground and the Munch would have none of it. She kept making a break for the slide. I coerced her into coming back for kisses with the baby. She would kiss the baby and then run. So I gave up. What a sweet big sister though!

Hangin' - Infant Photographer San Diego California

I heart Tracy Raver!! She does the cutest pose with newborns. I am so bummed that I found her a month too late to try it with the Chunk. She just doesn't stay asleep like a newborn anymore. Anyway, I stole this idea from Tracy Raver for an older baby. I couldn't find a bag like the one she used so I had one specially made.

Some more newborn plays - Newborn Photography San Diego CA

This is what I do when the big munch is napping. Little munch has now earned the title "chunk" since she has many adorable chub rolls.

Sorry I have been MIA, we had a new model . . . I mean precious baby girl!!! I had been preparing for these pictures for months. My friends at gave me some good tips for posing newborns on a beanbag and a black backdrop. And as soon as I found out I was having a girl, I ordered this pink cocoon.

He insists this was her first time in the ocean but I think she must have had her toes in the water at least once before. ;)

Happy 1st Birthday to my little Munch!

I had a dream about a birthday tutu. I'm very creative in my sleep. This isn't exactly how I dreampt it but I love it. It inspired a totally 80s "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" party theme. There were baby boys with mohalks. It was great, but hot! I had the cake made to match the tutu since the 1st birthday is all about the smash cake and the tutu . . . oh and the 1 yr old!!

My Little Sprite! - Infant Photography San Diego California

SSgy Yummy took us to a festival in Balboa Park where I saw these wings and hat and HAD to have them. She kept pulling the hat off. Hmmph!!! This is the only shot I really got with it and she had just eaten a clump of dirt which I photoshopped out. Gotta work with what I have.

Deployment - Infant Photography San Diego, CA

My husband is going on a brief deployment to Thailand in February so we took a family vacation to Catalina. It's my favorite place and I spent a lot of time there as a kid, so I was excited to take pictures there. We had a blast!! I've been improving my photoshop skills.
