Tristan's First Photos~ Newborn Session

This sweet little guy was a dream come true! He was such a mellow little one. His sister was full of energy, and luckily dad was able to take her to the park near by while we finished photos. I meet Tristan's mom in a Facebook Southern Orange County Moms Group and was super excited that it worked out for her to come to me to do photos. 


Cake Smash- Ella

This adorable little one had one of my favorite cake smashes so far! Mom really likes that backlit, soft dreamy look that is popular right now- and why not? I love that too! We met at a local park- she brought the hanging glass globes, cake and some other fun props and I brought along my tent and a vintage quilt. The light was just perfect and with a nearby tree, we hung the glass globes and proceed to capture some great photos of her little one enjoying her cake!
Happy 1st Birthday Ella!

Baby Anniston- Rainbow Baby

Have you heard the term Rainbow Baby but wondered what in the world that meant? Were they ethnically so mixed that they represented many nations? Were they the baby of a guy couple? These were some of my first thoughts!
According to Urban Dictionary, a Rainbow Baby is "a baby that is born following a miscarriage. In the real world, a beautiful and bright rainbow follows a storm and gives hope of things getting better... The storm (pregnancy loss) has already happened and nothing can change the experience…something colorful and bright has emerged from the darkness and misery". After I read that, it made sense! A Rainbow Baby is the blessing that follows the heartache of losing the baby (or babies) before.
Well, little Miss Anniston is a Rainbow Baby. Luckily, she follows just one loss, but having had many friends who have had miscarriages, one loss is one too many. I'm just so happy I had the chance to meet little Miss so early in her little life! Having meet her parents before they were married, it was great to see them as a family.

3 Month Milestone Session

This sweet little 3 month old is the same sweet little one from the Fresh 48 and newborn sessions posted earlier in the year. Her mom opted to do a Baby Plan with sessions at 3, 6, 9 and 1 months, so you will be seeing a lot of her this year!
With her 3 month milestone close to Easter, mom wanted to incorporate a little bit of Easter, but not too much.
