Baby Bump – A Menifee Lakes Maternity Session

Amanda has the perfect little baby bump. It’s the kind of baby bump that makes ladies want their own baby bump. I won’t get into specifics, but I think you catch my drift.

This shoot was so sophisticatedly simple. Perfect summer evening sun enveloped us as we walked literally steps from the proud parents house. Right from their doorstep, and out on the lake within seconds. I could not have asked for more.

You guys are going to be awesome parents. Can’t wait to meet him!

A bundle of newborn perfection – Meet Ella – Norco Newborn Photography

Another occupational bonus is I get first dibs on meeting friend’s new babies. The best time for a newborn shoot is pretty much 6 – 10 days old, and I was fortunate enough to meet this beauty while she was still in the single digits as far as days on earth are concerned. Which is perfect, because Ella’s mom probably met me around the same stage in my life. We go waaaay back.

Ella is as beautiful and flawless as she looks. An amazing little bundle of perfection. I cannot wait to watch her grow!

Have a happy and safe July 4th everyone! Hope you have the time to enjoy friends and BBQ!¬† (even if it’s soy dogs and veggies!)

An Early Morning Drink + a lovely love story : Jason + Kim

It’s not often that I knock on the door of the bar at 10am on a Sunday. No, I didn’t leave my debit card behind last night…. I was invited in by the owner, who graciously opened¬†her bar¬†up early so we could shoot Kim + Jason in the place where they met, and shared adorable early relationship moments together.

Kim and Jason literally kept me laughing the whole time we were shooting. They both have the best sense of humor, and would alternate cracking jokes with telling tales of how they both knew their relationship was simply meant to be. So stinkin cute!

Congrats to Kim + Jason, I am without a doubt positive that your November wedding is going to be the best party these parts have seen in awhile!

The Nurturing of One Crazy Nala

I’m afraid I’ve got to start this post with the dreaded apology. I haven’t been blogging (gasp…) much lately because I’ve been nurturing¬†my lovely pup back to health. She underwent a pretty gruesome knee surgery at the end of May, and she has been¬†under pretty much constant supervision since. She basically had a torn ACL, which is surprisingly common in dogs. So we repaired it with Tibial¬†Tuberosity¬†Advancement (TTA) surgery, which was actually pretty minimally invasive. Kinda. Except for the sawing of the bone.

Now Nala¬†has NINE screws in her knee along with a metal plate. She has been pretty much unfazed by the whole¬†ordeal, so unfortunately has to be¬†given pills every day to keep her quiet and give her knee time to heal. She’s probably more hyper on her doggie-downers than most normal dogs are on the day-to-day. Can we say high-energy dog? That said, sorry for the down time, but don’t worry, I have been shooting.. and it’ll be up here shortly.

As frustrating as it is being stuck at home with a dog ¬†(when your friends call, it’s a pretty darn lousy to have to tell them you can’t leave your dog home alone) the down time is fairly welcome. Lots of editing, organizing, and daydreaming I can check off my list!

Here are a couple old (and bad)¬†iPhone¬†photos to introduce you to Nala. When her hair grows back we’ll have to do some doggy¬†portraits. Nala is full of energy, emotion, personality, and very good at barking. But she is definitely full of love.

Here’s a couple post¬†surgery. She looks pretty pitiful, I know, but these were both taken just a few days after, and she’s feeling much better now.

Sophistication and Spring Fashion – Victoria’s Downtown Riverside Senior Portraits

There’s something in the air starting around this Memorial Day weekend. Yes, mostly it’s the beauty of the official start of summer, and all of us are itching for vacations and beach days. But that also means that by now most colleges, and some high schools are being to hold their graduation ceremonies. There’s always a tiny twinge of nostalgia for me around this time. I’ve been out of college THREE years now! Eek!! But the buzz around town is infectious, the beauty of optimism spreading, and as much as I should be starting to feel old with all the high school and college kids grabbing diplomas, I kind of feel the opposite. ¬†I feel young and motivated, and ready to take on the world. Here’s to hoping that’s exactly ¬†what all of these awesome people graduating and the next few weeks feel!

These pictures really do speak for themselves, but just to recap: Victoria is simply gorgeous, a random stranger even asked if she was a professional model. Yeah. So I really didn’t need to do much work behind the lens to make her look stunning. She’s confident, elegant, wonderfully goofy, and full of grace.

I know I said it in my last post, but I really love shooting senior portraits. I think I’m becoming more and more of a softy, but man, high schoolers these days are just impressive!

Congratulations to  Victoria and the graduating class of 2011! Go out and chase those dreams!

 

Have a fun and fabulous long weekend everyone!
