This birthday party was full of people who really knew how to throw a party. Baby Sahana was a dear that everyone got to hold and she didn't mind at all. Happy birthday Sahana!
Those 3 girls have been BFF since birth. They have basically done almost everything together. Camping, slumber parties, birthday parties and tons of play dates. Unfortunately, one of the girls have to move far away and the BFF session was very much needed. I hope, years down the road, they will look back to these photos and remember the beautiful friendship they had together.
This session was done during a heat wave, but the family was perfect to work with. I got to admit this, when photographing this mother, I felt like I was working with Jessica Biel!
I LOVE those girls (and of course the parents), they're so spunky and full of energy. We wanted to play with solid wall as a background and lucked out with this abandoned parking lot area. The girls had too much fun with the balloons and well, the photos will speak for themselves.
I've always seen this family via Instagram and was beyond thrilled when they booked with me on my visit down south at Riverside. I can tell that Zalia will be spoiled as she's the sister of three older boys.
I was SOOOOO thrilled when my clients asked me if I could plan a gender reveal surprise for them and to photograph their discovery. I barely could contain my excitement when we started the session. It was so much fun. I've done this family when the mama was pregnant with their first child and now this. I am sad to say that they family moved to Idaho and I'll get to photograph them whenever they are in town. The daughter is one of my favorite subject, her big eyes, ya know?
Lily was a tiny little thing with the biggest eyes you ever seen. I was smitten the second I saw her and fell in love with her throughout the session. She. Was. Seriously. Adorable.
This family is special to me. I met them when Hunter was a newborn, I did their family photos when he was 2 weeks old. Few months later, I found out that Hunter's mom died of cancer when the baby was only 4 months old. My heart broke, but that family is so well loved and full of faith so, I know Hunter will grow up well loved and that his mom's presence will always be there. When at the party, I could feel Irene's spirit and that she was smiling the whole time.
A week half old newborn was perfection. She slept through everything and even smiled just for me. :)
