Sneak Peek: Araceli {SENIOR}

Ok, I have to rave for a little bit. Tonight I had a rockstar senior session. I mean, everything was in top form…the light, my senior, her outfits, it was awesome! We hit up a bunch of different locations, 6 different outfits, and can I just say how gorgeous this girl is?! Araceli, girl, you were workin’ it!

Look at her, this girl is a natural. She tried to tell me that she’s not much of a smiler…I’m not sure I believe her!

There are so many favorites from this session, and this is one of them. Could this picture be any better??

DSC_0156

I love this one! This alley is one of my favorite places to photograph!

DSC_0339

Effortless. That’s how she makes it look.

This picture reminds me of something that would be taken in the O.C. Doesn’t she look like a Cali girl? Flowing hair, stunning dress, strappy heels!

Araceli, I hope you see in these picture what I do (and what the rest of the world is sure to!) You are a beautiful, lively, sweet young woman who has so much ahead of you.

Sneak Peek: Amber and Margie {MATERNITY}

Tonight I had the most fun photographing 1) my first outdoor maternity session 2) my first double maternity session, with the awesome Amber and her stepmom, Margie. The clincher? Amber and Margie are due on the same day. Amber is expecting a boy, and her stepmom is expecting a girl. Isn’t that just amazing for their family? These two women are perfect examples of the beauty of pregnancy, and I had such a great time capturing them tonight!

Isn’t Amber amazing? She needed almost no direction, and just oozes great style. I love this picture!

Amber_maternitysession01

Another favorite. She looks like she belongs right there, in the field. There is such peace on her face.

Amber_maternitysession06

As much as I adore a lovely picture, now and again, I also crave something with an edge. This one did it for me.

Amber_maternitysession07

This is Margie…well, this is Margie’s amazing baby bump!

Amber_maternitysession05

Another gorgeous shot, of Margie and her baby belly!

Amber_maternitysession02

These next two pictures turned out amazing. I saw them standing here, and felt like they were models posing for a maternity catalog or magazine. Work it!

Amber_maternitysession03

How cute are they? Amber and Margie, thank you so much for allowing me to capture this special time in your lives. I wish you smooth endings to your pregnancies, and best wishes to bring home your new little blessings soon!

Sneak Peek: The Worrell Family {CELEBRATING ADOPTION}

Have I mentioned lately how much I adore Celebrating Adoption sessions? This family was no exception. They brought little Camie home from China two years ago, and little Elijah only TWO WEEKS AGO! I swear, you would have never known that he’s only been home two weeks by watching them interact. He is as much a part of their family as anyone. I can only hope that when my husband and I adopt someday in the future, we are blessed with such adorable, easy-transitioning children!

Worrell_celebratingadoptionsession01

How cute is she? (and cooperative…)

Worrell_celebratingadoptionsession03

And what about this one? Can you say happy, and fits right in?! (now this one, he was a champion camera-avoider…anywhere I was, his face would not look! I worked hard for these pictures!)

Worrell_celebratingadoptionsession02

Here are Camie and Elijah with big brother Jacob. He was the one who kept them laughing!

Worrell_celebratingadoptionsession04

I love this one…he’s up to something…mischevious!

Worrell_celebratingadoptionsession05

I ADORE this picture. Camie, you are going to keep your parents on their toes when you are a teenager!

Cathy and family, thank you so much for allowing me to capture your growing, precious family! Meeting families like yours makes me want to adopt NOW!
