A Stunningly Beautiful Beach Momma

A Stunningly Beautiful Beach Momma

The Nyback’s are back!  The Nyback’s are back!  I love photographing these two.  This is the third milestone I’ve been asked to capture for them, and they are so much fun!  We trekked out to Point Dume State Beach on a gorgeous evening to take some maternity photos of this really stunning, glowing, gorgeous momma.  We threw in her handsome hubby when we had a chance as well  😉  Meghan rocked this photoshoot, and, quite frankly, looked like a preggo model to me!  Check out this gorgeousness!

Six is Lots of Sweet With a Little Bit of Sass!

Six is Lots of Sweet With a Little Bit of Sass!

Yesterday, my oldest daughter turned SIX!  I can’t even believe it.  Like probably most parents say on every birthday, I just can’t believe how quickly she is growing up, right before my eyes.  My favorite part of my kids turning another year older is watching their growth spurts they have emotionally and mentally in the couple of months prior to and following their birthday.  This girl has added a whole lot of sweet, and a little dose of sassy, to make up a 6 year old princess that I adore.  I am so excited to see what this year has in store for her, and so is she!  During her photoshoot I asked her “What are you most looking forward to being 6 years old?” She says “Getting to do things that bigger kids do.” I said, “What kind of things?” She says, “I don’t know, but I’m sure going to find out!” That’s my girl!  Bring it on!  Here’s the photos from her very special day, in which I got another “That was the best birthday ever, mom.” Music to my ears. 2014-09-01_0001 2014-09-01_0002 2014-09-01_0003 2014-09-01_0005 2014-09-01_0007 2014-09-01_00042014-09-01_0006 2014-09-01_0008 2014-09-01_0010 2014-09-01_0009 2014-09-01_0011 2014-09-01_0013 2014-09-01_0012 2014-09-01_0014 2014-09-01_0022 2014-09-01_0017

My baby girl, the very littlest one, turned 2 yesterday.  It’s a bittersweet birthday for me.  She’s my very last baby (for sure this time!), and while I know we are done having babies, it makes my heart a little sad to see her grow out of her baby stage.  It was just so darn cute.  Fortunately, she has this amazing, sweet, loving, loud and hilarious personality that makes me so excited to see the person she is becoming.  I just love this little lady!!  Every day is a crack up with her, and her sisters!  I always take birthday portraits of the kids, whether they like to do it or not.  Have a look at my ever so beautiful 2 year old Jordison, and that gorgeous curly red hair…

I love babies, and I love cake, and I LOVED this cake smash session!  I always find it funny when adults think babies should make a big huge mess out of their cake, and the babies look back at you like “why in the WORLD would I want this all over me?”  They continue to get more irritated when their hands get shoved in the cake to make a messy point.  It’s fun to watch and I love doing it!  😛  Little Izaiah was not the hugest fan of that icing getting all over his cute little face and hands, but he sure loved the icing!  And was more than happy to trail his momma around.  Happy 1st birthday to this sweet, handsome little boy!

It’s a Beautiful Life {Huntington Beach Birth Photographer}

I’m hooked.  On June 14th, I had an incredible experience photographing the birth story of little baby Jenevieve.  I’ve had 3 kids myself, and of course, it was a beautiful.  I loved every minute of it.  My mom took pictures for me, and I treasure them dearly.  However, it is quite a different experience to watch another family welcome a new life.  The awe and the love that come from looking at those squinty little eyes, counting those fingers and toes, kissing those squishy cheeks, and holding the precious baby that you have been dreaming about for 9 months.  There is just nothing like it.  I must thank the H family for allowing me in to document this day in their life.  I am so grateful.  I hope these are images you can treasure for the rest of your life as your family grows!  Happy birthday to baby Jenevieve, and congratulations to the H family on their new addition!  Here is just a snippet from their morning welcoming their baby…

Saddling Up for Big Sky Country!

Saddling Up for Big Sky Country!

In 3 weeks, the fam and I will be loading up and road tripping out to Red Lodge, MT for a rustic, Big Sky Country wedding!  While the bride and her family are a long time friends since childhood, I am honored to be capturing the beauty of these two ceremoniously joining their lives together, as well as their families.  I imagine this trip is going to be SO MUCH FUN!  So check back for an update to check out our adventures, and some wedding photos!  I was perusing the engagement photos I took of Meghan and Josh in January, and found some photos that didn’t get shared last time.  Enjoy these, and come back soon!
