Families 2012

This might be my longest blog post ever. I did quite a few family portraits before the Holidays last year, and haven’t had a chance to post them up yet. So here are a bunch, all in one post! I was feeling quite sentimental when I was putting these little collages together yesterday afternoon. First, I was chatting with my sister Jamie, and we haven’t spoken in a really, really long time. Both of my sisters have had their share of troubles over the years (long story) and the last few have been particularly hard on my family. Jamie is finally getting her life together and she just sounded like, “her” and after we talked I just broke down for awhile, I didn’t realize how much I missed her. So then Louie and I went to see the movie 42. I think my sister opened me up, because I cried though out the whole movie, and then in the grocery store afterwards. I came home and was finishing these up and I started feeling so blessed, that all these families trust me with capturing their memories. Just a crazy emotional day. Poor Louie.

Zoe’s Baby Shower

Most of my time is spent shooting portraits and Weddings, but every now and then I get the opportunity to photograph something different, like this baby shower. It’s true what they say about pregnant women glowing, because Zoe looked beautiful. There were quite a few familiar faces there, especially Zoe’s Dad, Henry Winkler. Kim and Courtney Kardashian who are childhood friends of Zoe, were also in attendance. It was a dark and rainy afternoon, but it was definitely warm and cozy inside. The shower ended with singing from a local children’s choir.

Amy, Joel, and Zoey!

I photographed Amy and Joel’s Wedding in 2009, a few months ago I was there for their maternity session, and most recently I met baby Zoey! This is such an exciting time for this brand new family. Here are a few pics of Amy and Joel at Disneyland before the arrival of Zoey.

And then came Zoey…

 

Addison, Ava, and Jayden

Cousins are those childhood playmates who grow up to be forever friends.

I photographed both Jennifer and Karla’s Weddings, they are sisters. Since their Weddings they both have new babies! I loved spending the afternoon with them.

Maria and Juan have a baby on the way! They were both so sweet and so obviously excited about their baby. I had a great time getting to know them both. Here’s a few of my favorites.
