J+A {Maternity} | Orange County, CA Maternity Photographer

  I had the honor of meeting with Jacqueline and Augustine to photograph their maternity session.  These two were the sweetest couple.  They brought along their little dog named Honey, and she was so cute.  They are having a little boy due September 25th!

  About a year and a half ago, Jacqueline and Augustine sadly lost Augustine’s daughter, Ann, to a brain tumor at only 4 years old.  They really wanted to incorporate her in part of their session since she is still very much a big part of their lives.  They keep her ashes in a sweet angel urn, which just seems so fitting for such a beautiful little soul.  These two represent such strength and love, and you can really tell what a support they are to each other. 

  If you would like to learn more or donate to the National Brain Tumor Society in Ann’s name, please visit this link http://www.braintumor.org/

Jacqueline & Augustine- thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your lives and capture these sweet memories for your growing family.  I have no doubt you will be amazing parents, because you already are <3

I loved this family so much!  They were so sweet and welcoming, I seriously had the best time hanging out with them!  They have 2 of the sweetest, most beautiful girls and boy/girl twins on the way! (Who are due any day now!)  Thank you Arevalo family for allowing me to capture such a special time in your lives!  I can’t wait to meet your new little twinkies!

Madelynn {Newborn} | Orange County, CA Newborn Photographer

Miss Maddie is the beautiful daughter of my friend Alley who’s beach maternity photos I did here

It’a amazing to see someone transition from person to parent, especailly a friend you know so well.  Alley is such an amazing mom as I knew she would be… the love in her eyes when she talks about Maddie is just so perfect and sweet.

Madelynn was a dream to photograph, she was out when I got there and was semi-awake when I was posing her, but she just hung out and went with the flow. 

Ian & Alley {Maternity} | Maternity Photographer Seal Beach CA

This girl… I have so much I could say about this girl.  Alley and I met when I used to work in the salon doing hair and makeup full time.  Our stations were right next to each other and we became fast friends.  I am so honored she chose me to capture this amazing time in her life.  Being that we’ve been friends for what feels like so long and we’ve been through life’s ups & downs together, it was only fitting I was able to be a part of her maternity photos.  I have no doubt in my mind that Ian and Alley will be amazing parents.  Alley you will be an amazing mom because you are an amazing friend, sister and daughter.  The love that you have for life shines through in all you do and your daughter is so blessed to have you guys as parents.  I love you!

Hernandez Family {Maternity} | Venice Beach, CA Photographer

I had SO much fun photographing this adorable family.  There’s something amazing that happens when you photograph people who truly love each other with all that they are… it completely shows through in their photos, and that’s exactly what happened in our session with Isaac, Jacqui and Elijah (and baby girl in the belly)! 

We had the greatest time walking around the Venice Beach Canals.  We would stop and take pictures, every now and then and if it was just Jacqui and Isaac, I would get them posed, tell them to look at me, then at the belly, then at each other and then kiss, and every now and then Jacqui would say “Do we get to kiss again?” or “Can we kiss again?”  SQUEEEE!!!  I love love love couples so in love with each other!

Thank you Isaac and Jacqui for allowing me to capture such an amazing time in your lives … and thank you little Elijah for letting me run up and down the alley ways playing pirates with you! ARRR MATEY!
