A Living, Breathing Miracle

I recognize that all babies are miracles.  But when your life starts out with complications, it makes every day together that much sweeter.  Such is the case with little Miss C.  She terrified all of us in the beginning, but thanks to the amazing Dr.s & Nurses that cared for her and much praise to God for giving her the strength to pull through, I had the enormous privilege of holding my beautiful, healthy niece in my arms for the first time in December.  I only wish I could see her everyday.

I’d also like to put in a plug for the Ronald McDonald house for providing my sister & her husband a place to stay where they could be close to their baby.  What an incredible organization!

So here she is, after a long wait (both to meet her and to finally get these pictures posted online!)


Today’s sneak peek.

This little guy was so happy – he smiles, he coos, he flashes those baby-blues, and was an absolute joy to photograph.   Thanks for welcoming me into your home today.  Here’s your sneak peek.  I’ll email as soon as the full set of proofs is online.

Sneak Peek

This morning I went to Irvine to photograph this beautiful family.  These kids are so happy – you can tell there’s a lot of love in this home.  The little guy is FAST but I managed to get some adorable photographs of him!  And his big sister loves the camera, which makes my job so much easier!  Thanks for having me over today.  I hope you love your sneak peek 🙂 .

Orange County Photography

Last month I traveled down to the beach to photograph these adorable kids.  I normally don’t do a lot of beach photography, but since the ocean was in their back yard, how could I refuse?  The light was amazing, the family was a blast, and I love our results.
