Thank You and Happy New Year!!

As we embark upon a new year I have been reflecting on the events of 2011. This past year has been amazing in so many ways. I wanted to take some blog space to thank all of you who have supported me and my photography business this year. I have had the opportunity to meet a lot of new and wonderful people as well as enjoy the company of old friends and repeat customers. I truly feel blessed to know all of you. Thank you for making my year one to remember. I can't wait to see what next year brings.

Here are a few of my favorites from this past year. Enjoy!

2011 Thanks grid

Bringing you a Cup of Good Cheer!

I hope you are having a fabulous holiday season! I just wanted to share my little and big man on their favorite ride at Disneyland (that's where we spent part of our holiday!).

The Three L's

The L. mom contacted me for a photosession of her two kids. It's tradition for them to have their picture taken together every year. There is one rule that they have to follow... They have to be touching in some way. She told me about all the crazy photos they have done in the past and how this tradition wasn't always the favorite of her two kids. But I just loved this first photo and the look in E.'s eyes as his sister tried to carry out the tradition!!

Of course they did indulge me in some sweet family love!

And they were even happy just to hang out with each other side by side.

I don't know about you but I think that L. is just gorgeous!

And L. suggested that her mom had to get in some photos too. Love this one of D. because every time I think of her it's with a happy laughing smile.

Even E. sat long enough for me to get a few good ones of him (that I know his lady friend will love!).

Thanks to you L. Trio for sharing your tradition, lots of laughs and for enduring all of my awesome jokes!

The L. Family

This is one of the sweetest blue-eyed family I know. Their photosession was full of laughs and big smiles. They were so much fun to work with. Don't you just love this photo?

More of the G. Family

This is the G. Family. They braved the windy weather for this photosession and were champs about it. The boys were so cute smiling so big every time they could barely see. I loved every second of it!

Enjoy these images!

Blue the Christmas Dog

Meet Blue. He's a Texas Blue Lacy living in California. His grandma insisted that we do a photosession of her only granddog. She even bought him a Christmas collar. I've photographed families who brought dogs with them for their sessions but never a dog on its own. It was amazing how all the same tricks I used for toddlers worked on dogs! You know- treats, loud noises and shiney objects, and of course be very fast! Here are a few of my favorites of good ol' Blue.

More of the O. Family

There's nothing like squeezing in a family photo the second your son comes home from college and you have 20 of your relatives coming into town for the holiday. But the O. family was up for the challenge. They even had an idea of taking them at a new location that has recently opened up here in town. Here are a few from their session:

Genni matt and Tanner

austin and brennan

jake and emily

These kids are sooo cute! And I can't believe that we finally got little E. to smile!

Thanks O. Family!

It's Beginning to Look a lot Like Christmas!!!

For the past two months I've been taking and enjoying lots of family photos that will most likely end up on holiday cards. It has just hit me recently that Christmas is only a month away and I can't wait!!! I just had to share my excitement... and a photo of my tree before my toddler destroys it!


More of the W. Family

For the W. Family's sneak peek I posted a lot of their hysterical outtakes (click here). But they took quite a few awesome normal photos too! They are a great family and it was seriously fun to photograph them. And C. made a confession that they hadn't taken a family photo since their daughter was 1--GASP!!!! I'm sure glad they changed their wicked ways! lol!





I love this gorgeous location!

Thanks W. Family!!
