Children are a Blessing

One of my favorite sessions…because it’s my daughter and grandchildren! It was long over due haha We had the session in Ladera Ranch and it was a blast! My daughter picked out the colors which turned out very nice. Ofcourse my grandchildren were full of energy and they were all over the place, I’m actually surprised that I got as many “posed” shots as I did!

“But the lovingkindness of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him, And His righteousness to children’s children, to those who keep his covenant and remember to do his commandments.” Psalm 103:17-18

Their Married!

Royal and Becky met at church, they have a beautiful love story! I was thrilled when they asked me to take pictures at the wedding reception they had to celebrate their marriage with our church. It was a fun filled night full of love, laughter, joy and lots and smiles!

“Then the LORD God said, ‘It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him.'” Genesis 2:18

Welcome Baby Brielle

So many precious memories captured in just a few hours! Kelly was calm and seemed to be filled with such a peace during her labor. She would gently hold up her finger to let everyone know that she was having a contraction and then would breathe deeply and close her eyes. Her husband was definately a loving comfort to her, rubbing her shoulders and making her smile. The delivery happened very quickly, if you blinked you would have missed it! It was so sweet to be able to capture the first time mama saw Brielle; pure joy! Bring able to provide images of Brielles first cry, first smile, first bath and diaper change is absolutely priceless! I absolutely love capturing these moments!

Jeremiah 1:5

Baby number two

I photographed this couples maternity in Ladera Ranch with their son and was thrilled when they asked me to photograph the birth of their second child. I arrived at the hospital when she went into active labor and was able to take a few pictures before being asked to leave due to complications. So unfortunately I was not able to photograph the birth of their baby but I am happy to report both mother and baby are doing great. Congratulations!

She’s 18!

Maggie celebrated her 18th birthday with her parents, family and close friends. It was a beautiful and fun night! Maggie looked absolutely stunning and she was smiling all night. Everyone had a wonderful time celebrating this sweet young lady.

“This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
Psalm 118:24

Family Love

If you follow my blog, you may recognize this beautiful family. I was blessed to be able to document the birth of Thatcher and to take family portraits after he was born. This sweet family relocated and wanted to have family pictures taken before they left. It’s always such a joy to photograph this family! They are all so very precious. Look how big Thatcher has gotten! I can’t believe he’s one already!

“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness”
Galatians 5:22

Time Flies…..

This beautiful young lady is one of my daughters best friends and I was absolutely thrilled to be able to take her senior portraits! She is a triplet (the only set of triplets I know). We did all three sessions on the same day at their home, which, has so many memories not only for their family but for ours too. Jenny is stunning and her sweet personality really came out in these pictures.
