Beach Butterflies

A few weeks ago my brother and his family came to visit us.  We had perfect weather and such a great time.  I can't tell you how much I enjoyed taking these pictures since we aren't able to get together often due to the distance that separates us (they live in Texas).  My sister-in-law had the brilliant idea to put butterfly wings on the girls.  As you can see, they made for just beautiful images.  Thank you Brian and Katie for the wonderful week and sharing your beautiful girls with us.  Love you guys.

A double blessing

In a celebration of the brother and sister inside this belly finally getting out of the NICU, here is their maternity shoot.  I had such a great time with this family of 7!!!  And I couldn't be happier that everyone is going to be home and healthy for Christmas.

The train station

If you have not visited the train station in  San Juan Capistrano, make a trip.  There are just so many fun places to see while you are there.  This beautiful family and I had a great time there, despite one of the girls being just a little under the weather.   Looking forward to going back and exploring even more.

More Holiday Fun

This family was so easy going and wonderful to work with.  Theses kids were adorable and so fun.  They had me laughing most of the session.

6 months later

I looked forward to this photo session for quite some time.  I met this not so little guy when he was just 3 weeks old, and his parents invited me to come back again now that he is 6 months.  I love seeing kids grow and change.

Holiday gear up

A few weeks ago, I did a day of holiday mini-sessions so families could order Christmas cards early and get ahead of the game (a thing I often try to do, but rarely succeed).  This family was so fun to work with.  I was drawn to their two boys as they reminded me so much of mine with their personalities, and mom and dad could not have been any nicer.  Can't believe I am saying this (where did 2010 go), but hope you are gearing up for your holidays too!!!

The San Juan Mission

This beautiful couple had their marriage blessed by the Catholic church, and I was lucky enough to witness their intimate ceremony at the most beautiful church I have ever set foot in.  I had so much fun at this session.  Not only was the venue amazing, but the family was delightful to work with.
