Sofia [Newborn]

Wow, it has been WAY TOO LONG since I last blogged … been way too busy, way too much drama, & not enough photo shoots. But now I’m back πŸ™‚ I have tons of photos to update my blog .. so STAY TUNED πŸ˜€

I love referrals !! Monica was referred to me by Nancy (remember her & her two beautiful daughters??) Monica had just given birth to her little cutie pie SOFIA. I had the privilege of taking a few pictures of Sofia in their home (since she was only a few weeks old). Β ENJOY !!

Nancy + Kids Portraits

So, it’s Saturday morning. I’m sleeping in… after staying up til dawn watching “The Hobbit.|

Derik & I finally muster up the energy to wake up & head to the OC Fairgrounds for their swap meet. As we’re getting ready, I check my email real quick .. & lo & behold. I see an email from Nancy !! Unfortunately, the photographer she booked with has cancelled on her & so I am the lucky one to get the opportunity to capture some sweet mother & daughters portraits for their hero firefighter husband/father πŸ˜‰

SO !! Here are the adorable girls. Josie & Ella. with their beautiful mother Nancy !!


I know this shot is all cut off .. but I really like the candidness of it … so it’s actually one of my favs .. hehe ❀


These few pictures with the fire fighter helmet are my all time FAVS of this set. πŸ™‚

At the end of the shoot… the girls were putting on a show for us πŸ˜‰ how adorable ❀
