{New Blog!}

This is a bitter sweet post for me as I say goodbye to my old blogsite. It has served it's purpose for me for the past 3 years but as my business is growing and my work changing, I felt it was a necessary to highlight my work in a more professional format. With that said, I proudly introduce my new blog site. There will be a link to bring you back here so I won't entirely shut this site down. My new site still needs some tweaking so bare with me as I iron out all the wrinkles. Thank you dear blog followers for making the switch.
I appreciate all your support.

{A Little Socal in Norcal}

This session had to go down as one of my favorite beach sessions to date. This very sweet mom contacted me a few weeks ago wanting to capture some family photos down at the beach for a special father's day gift for her husband while they were in town from Southern California. They must have brought Socal weather with them as the weather was unusually warm especially in August when beach sessions here are always dicey due to the crazy marine layer we get. Lucky them and lucky me! I could not have asked for a better day or a better family. Not only were they beautiful people but they were fun to work with and game for some of my silly ideas. Here is just a snippet of our time together.
Thank you S Family!
Enjoy your sneak peek!

{Email Down}

Hello! Just returned from vacation to my email being down so bare with me as it should be up after today. If you need to contact me regarding an appointment or want more info about a session, please call me at 831.251.8832.
Otherwise, it may be a day or two before I can get back to you.
On another note...I have so much to share with you. I just returned from an incredible newborn workshop. I will be sending out a newsletter soon with some new details about my newborn sessions as well as some info on early booking your Fall family sessions for the holidays. All those details will be mailed out to my existing clients first and then I will open up my books for Sept-November for the general public.
Also, if you know of anyone due in September or October please have them contact me as soon as possible to hold the dates surrounding baby's due date. I only book 3 newborn sessions a month and they are filling up very fast these days.
Stay tuned for my new blog which should be up and running in a week or two. There, I will have more fabulous images like this one from my workshop. Enjoy!

{Sleepy Time Baby}

Meet Mr. C. Just 9 days old today and born the day after the 4th of July. It took just a little bit to get him to sleep but once we got him a little drunk on mama's milk and all warm and cozy, he was a goner. He slept for our 2 hour session and was a real trooper and a sweet poser for me. Just loved his little sleepy time expressions and noises so I thought I would post a few of them today as a sneaky peek. Thanks for coming to see me with big brother today. More to see soon in your private gallery. Enjoy!

{Born To Ride}

Isn't he a cute peanut? His mommy and especially daddy, have been planning this session for 9 months now! No lie! LOL! I've always wanted the opportunity to do something like this on a motorcycle with a newborn and lucky me, Baby J's daddy happens to be a motorcycle man! To our sweet delight, not only did this little guy fully cooperate sitting on daddy's ride, he actually smiled for us. Not just one smile but about a half a dozen of the cutest tongue out smiles I think I've ever seen! I guess you could say that he was just born to ride! Chris & Amy, thank you for sharing you cute little peanut with me today. More yummy images to share in your gallery real soon. Until then, enjoy the peeky peek of your little guy! He rocked the camera today and I can see why you are so smitten with him ;)

{Papafloppa & Company}

On a very warm and beautiful July afternoon, I set out for Capitola to capture some wonderful memories for a dear client and friend of mine. She wanted to capture some pictures of her father and mother with all of their grandchildren. So I came prepared for what may happen for a group that ages span from 9 years old to 10 months. Quite the task but a complete joy for me in so many ways. Before shooting, I had a chance to chat with the oldest grandkids to get some dirt about why they think these grandparents are so great. They shared with me that Papa's nickname was "Papafloppa" for his couch flopping antics and that he likes to hide candy in strange places inside their cute cottage home. The children each told me with delight how fun it was to discover candy in a sock drawer and how they looked forward to discovering a new hiding place with each visit. Grandma was funny because she likes to say cute and colorful phrases ;) and that they all loved her laugh and funny stories. It's easy to see and feel the love they have for their children, grandchildren and anyone else who they welcome into their home. I love everything about them from their hands on grandparenting, how they laugh at themselves and to the sweet pet names they call each other. They make me want to be like them when I grow up and I know that is exactly how their children and grandchildren must feel about them too. Thank you for the wonderful afternoon M & M! I just adore you both! Enjoy the sneak peek and more to come real soon I promise! Keep living, loving and laughing!

{Design Wednesday}

Just wanted to share a few photos of yet another tasteful display of my images from a wonderful client. The images in the nursery brought tears to my eyes as they turned out so great and I'm very honored that my work was displayed so beautifully. I believe all 4 images are wrap around canvases ordered through Bay Photo. They are my number one recommended lab and truly are helpful when it comes to making the most of your CD images. Happy Wednesday Everyone!
