{Sweet} things to come …

 I just got in from another session and am snuggling down to proof and eat dinner (mmmm, Thai – thankyouverymuch!) … wanted to share some photos from last night’s session. I absolutely LOVE meeting new clients and getting to know them … it’s such an honour!

They, too, have a Lila (spelled differently than my Lyla) and she was just a cutie! Soon her world will change as she makes the next step to become a big sister  ….




Sweet baby bump. 🙂 My guess: boy!


What a sweet couple … mom was just glowing … you know the glow – the kind of glow that just comes from deep inside your heart when you are bursting forth with happiness and joy …


I cannot wait to meet their baby in July! Congratulations, you two!

Rose:) LUV the pics:) The scene with the bed is cute…..not a bad idea to just lay there under the sun, clouds and stars and just DREAM!

Alicia WOW!! You are a true photo rock star. We loved our time with you. We have to get our L’s together for a play date. =)

My New Babysitter…

I saw this scene in the living room this afternoon and the sight just melted my heart … 

According to Lacey (a mature five year old, wishing to turn 16 already), she was “babysitting” Lucia … “watching over her…”



Lucia was loving it … 🙂





Lacey was quite disapointed when I dropped the girlies off for babysitting during a session tonight … “Mommy, didn’t you like my babysitting? I was doing a good job …”

Ohhh, hun … if only …. maybe in eight more years and quite frankly, I just love the stages that all the girls are in right now and I wouldn’t rush those eight years in the world for all the free babystting I could get.

Catherine You captured some priceless moments! Just sweet, tender, and loving! Your girls have beautiful souls.

Too cute for words …

Last night, I had the pleasure of shooting the Show Gigi Some Love babies … do you remember that contest that went belly up? Yeah, well, to solve the issue, I had the awesome pleasure of meeting each baby and photographing each smiling face …. 🙂 A win-win, really!

I have lots to go through but just had to post this one – too cute for words! 


Aren’t these twins sweet? This was my first time meeting Abby and Rylan and I fell in love!



More sneak peeks coming soon! We have LOTS going on here – canvas sale (extended to 7 p.m. tonight!), La Tienda auction and a giveaway! Oh yeah, and the Father’s Day canvas sale!

WOW! I’m exhausted just linking all those posts! 😉

Little Ray of {Sunshine} …

Just a quick sneak peek (more to come later) of last night’s cutie pie … he is a definite ray of sunshine for his parents. You could tell it by just watching them all interact together. I first met Nicholas, now 2.5 year old, when he was just three months old … how time flies!




Tonight, I’m shooting the babies from the Show Gigi Some {Love} contest – can’t wait!
