I am just about 38 weeks in my pregnancy, I am so uncomfortable and anxiously awaiting Dante’s arrival. Meanwhile, I seem to be photographing newborns every weekend which makes me want him here even more. I was never good at waiting…..Not to mention I could really use a glass of wine after chasing my 2 year old around:) I haven’t had time to post to my blog in so long, I will do my best to get some new stuff up in the next couple of weeks. Here is a cute smoooooooshy newborn that I met last week, his name is Colter, he is so easy going, no crying, no fussing. Super calm easy baby, he even sleeps at night. WHAT?!?!??!
Remembering 2011 and 2012! I first met Lissett and Mark when they were pregnant with twins. I remember I was trying to get pregnant myself and I was blown away by how beautiful Lissett looked and shocked at the same time that two babies lived inside her tiny belly. Its sad when a pregnant woman is wearing skinnier jeans than you! I love this family. They are two of the kindest, nicest people I have ever met and the twins are beyond adorable! I love every chance I get to shoot these little munchkins! Here are a few from 2011/2012 my how they change!
Ok and here are a few others because they are so cute!
A year has flown by way too fast. I remember last december we were at the airport on our way to New Jersey and Ava had just mastered walking right before we got on the plane. We were so proud of her! After that milestone it seems like everything was full speed ahead, so fast you can’t keep up! A lot has happened besides watching her learn more and more everyday. Last summer we found out we were pregnant, BIG surprise! We decided to put our house on the market to see what happens and I guess we both figured it would take months to sell. We had a few offers the first day, in fact we accepted an offer that was over our asking price. What a blessing that was! We had to then kick it into high gear and find ourselves a new house. We put my poor brother in law Adam through the ringer when finding us the amount of bedrooms needed in our budget. Leaving the beach was really hard, I still miss walking to the beach, but we are very happy in suburbia and we managed to stay in San Clemente, its just home here. After a stressful move we are all settled and just had an amazing Christmas at home with Ava. Watching her walk down the stairs to see all the presents Santa left her was priceless. Poor thing was sick with croup but she managed to pep up for presents:) Anyway, here are some pics I took in about 10 minutes prior to Christmas for our holiday card….I love how they turned out as hard as it is to chase a 2 year old!
Well this was fun! I took Ava and Annabel and her mommy of course to this spot off the 5 freeway in San Juan. It was a bit chilly and wet so early in the morning, also known as “happy” time. Anyway, lots of mud, tons of buzzing bee’s, nasty rotting oranges and a couple of cranky toddlers that want to play NOT sit still to take a pic! Anyway, we managed to get a few cute ones of Annabel and I think they capture her personality well, she is a fun, crazy, bouncy, smart, adventurous little girl with the most AMAZING EYES! She knows what she wants and is a true leader in the toddler world. She is always the leader of the pack at the playground…leading to far away places away from us moms!
Oh Jake Ryan, the teenage heartthrob from 16 candles….just the name brings me back. When Cindy told me she was naming her baby after my first movie crush I died! Jacob is the sweetest little baby boy ever. He is such a good baby and I am so proud of my friends Cindy and Joe…he is adorable:) Here are a few from a quick shoot we did in their living room a week ago.
