I was so excited when this couple contacted me about photographing their maternity/newborn session. I have known them through friends for quite a few years and we share a mutual love, Hawaii. You couldn’t ask to work with a sweeter couple. Laura has a contagious smile and laugh that just makes you happy. Almost as happy as shooting by Corisno Cakes which was kind enough to open for us to score some cupcakes!

So I just got back from a trip to San Diego. My mission, the Baby as Art workshop. I figure if I am going to study working with newborns, then I will work with the best in the biz. Baby as Art has even photographed celebrities such as Pink and Ziggy Marley, pretty sweet huh. Overall, it was a wonderful experience and I got to meet an amazing group of girls to as well. Carrie and Brittany were just fantastic teachers and gave the ultimate workshop experience, and for that I thank them. Here are a couple sneak peeks from this weekend.

When my friend Kara found out she was pregnant with baby 3, she not only told me via instant message, but she also booked me on the spot. I was not only thrilled with the honor, but overwhelmed with happiness for her and her family. I have known Kara for a long time and I know how much of a blessing this baby was.
I have a great past with her kids, one of my favorite sessions when I first started my business. Both of them were fabulous little hams again for me, even thought the weather was a bit brisk. With a late December session, we were glad to get away with a cool breeze versus 3 feet of snow.
The story only starts here, more to come….

Just days after meeting baby “J” at the hospital, I got the privilege of coming to his home and shooting his newborn pictures. I am a fan of older homes with character, heck I bought one, but this one had killer hardwoods and a gorgeous wooden staircase, so for me to shoot here was a big SCORE! He was bright eyed most of our visit but after some work of being super cute, we finally got him to rest his eyes. It must be the bucket.
