    Spring School Photos

    Currently waiting for the prints for Addy’s Spring school photos to come in, but I got my digital copies and I’m excited to share 🙂 Yes…even though I am a photographer I still buy school photos. I don’t intend to, but the package comes back, and she looks so cute so I have to give them all my money 😆 💵 On another note, my Addy has been getting so good at being in front of the camera. I even taught her how to laugh on cue. Here are her photos:

    Oh Mister! Suspenders and blue jeans, white and navy blue ribbon bunting, organic white balloon arch over a white vintage high chair, mustache balloons and mustache cake…could anything be more charming and dashing than this one year photoshoot and cake smash inspiration? We don’t think so! Baby Dante (later joined by his sisters) is looking sharp in his outfit at this Thousand Oaks outdoor location at Conejo Creek North Park.

    Baby Aaliyah’s One Year Session | Oxnard, CA

    I had the best session with Baby Aaliyah, or “Birdie” as her family calls her. Her one year birthday theme was Disney’s Vampirina and she looked so cute in her tutu! (Mom got it on Etsy) If you look through the photos you can see all of her personality and sass coming through, especially with all the amazing expressions she gave me during our session. Credit for the amazing photos goes to Baby Aaliyah and her family who know how to have fun with each other. I loved working with such a loving family!

    Aerika and Anastasia’s Mother-Daughter Session | Downtown Ventura, CA

    Being a mother myself, there is just something about the mother-daughter relationship that is extra special to me. The photos I took of this beautiful mother-daughter duo shows you just how special it is. A connection exists between mother and daughter that cannot be explained, but here you can see it in their shared smiles, their hugs, and their joint goofiness.  There is a high level of comfort and joy that they have with one another that was obvious during our session, and visible in each and every photo. I am so happy that they wanted to celebrate their combined birthdays and their special relationship through photography. The little moments we spend together…

    Baby Emi’s 1 Year and Cake Smash Session | Oxnard, CA

    From the moment I walked into Ezra and Hugo’s home for Emi’s One Year and Cake Smash Session, Emi’s giggles and smiles grabbed my attention. On set she was crawling around, dancing, and laughing. She quickly won me over, and I had the best time photographing her. As expected, Mom had to help get her started with the cake smash, but once she tasted the chocolate pieces on the cake, she was hooked! On the creative side of things, this photoshoot was a fun one for me. Instead of having to choose a single theme for Emi’s session, we decided to combine the various themes and tie them together using a…
