This was one of my favorite pregnancy sessions this past year.  Such a kind and beautiful couple expecting their first son (will post his images next!).  The weather was perfect and the setting amazing as always!  I am finding  I am really enjoying balancing the darkness and the light in a much different way then I have in the past.  I feel more drawn to darker imagery with beautiful sprays of light.  It is fun to go over past images and re-edit them to my vision today.  As an artist, I am always pushing the boundaries and trying to see (and feel) beyond what is in front of me.  I want to capture the actual moment, feel it when I look at my imagery, evoke others to feel and being present enough to do that is so important to me.  I enjoyed this getting to know this couple.  I am always grateful when people choose me to capture such important one of a kind type of moments for them, it means quite a bit!  Here are a few images from this fantastic session!

Lil man L, from the newborn post below is now 6 months old!  He is sitting in the basket we took his newborn session in!  Too fun!  He has the cutest little face and the best expressions!  He was fascinated by my camera!  He was such a trooper and there are so many sweet photos of this very beautiful family!  I had a very difficult time narrowing down what I wanted to post, so there are a lot of photos here!  Enjoy!

I adored meeting this lil man and his family in person.  I had the wonderful chance of meeting dad at Theresa’s in Simi Valley during one of the pet adoption days.  This sweet couple fostered our dog, Blaise-y Boy, (aka Danny) before we adopted him.  We are so grateful to them for taking such good care of our sweet puppy before he was ours.  They are some of the nicest, kindest, most loving and hardworking people I have met.  I was so honored to be asked to capture their newborn baby boy.  These photos are some of my very favorites and as this sweet baby boy grows, he just gets cuter and cuter!  Here are a lot of my favorites from their newborn at home session.  I had such a hard time narrowing it down to just a few!

Yesterday I made a last minute attempt to get to the beach by sunset.  I just felt like sitting on the sand and watching the sunset, but that was not in the greater plan.  As we were driving out to the beach, we were just about 7 miles away, the police shut the road down and made us all turn around.  Initially, we (my children and I) were all pretty upset, but the detour proved to be a good one.  We traveled down a road we had never been on.  It was amazing!  The fog was rolling in over the hills and into the valleys, every twist and every turn was a photographer’s dream.  As we finally reached the beach, the sun had just set.  I did not bring a tripod (since this was a last minute trip) but we got out anyway.  We sat on the cliff listening to the ocean roll the rocks below us.  It sounded like fireworks, but so much more beautiful with the swish of the ocean moving in and out.  I pulled out my camera and took these few shots.  It was dark, so the ISO on the camera was high, but I am very happy with these little last minute hand held images.  I like to push my boundaries and I did last night.  I am also moving into more of a dark and light phase in my life, where I like the darker images and how they affect the light.  I guess it is just where I am in life.

I am just starting to delve into capturing graduating students- be it kindergarten, grade school, high school, or college- this year I did it all.  So much fun to work with new clients at such happy times in their lives.  This is Ms. T.  She is one of my good friends daughters!  I cannot believe she is graduating high school (well at this point has graduated high school!).  We had a lot of fun.  She is so naturally pretty, she made my job so easy!
