Baby W:: Gilroy Newborn Photographer

His beautiful head of hair will be the first thing you notice; then the cutest little body you've ever seen. After being a week late and 12 hours in labor Baby W made his entrance into the world. And he couldn't have been any more loved than if there had been two of him. He is doted on hand and foot by everyone. And who can blame him? It's pretty hard to stay away from innocent perfection. He was such a trooper that I have sooooo many pictures of him! He let us pose him, bend him, put him on pianos and in return we got...you guessed it--a little liquid love. Congratulations April and George~ I know you both are so proud! Thank you for letting me capture these precious days.


Absolutely Perfect:: Gilroy Children's Photographer

When she bares her toothless grin and gives her tiny giggle you can't help but laugh back at her and get down on the floor to play with her. I can't believe she's 9 months already! Time disappears so fast! It doesn't seem like it was all that long ago that I was shooting her newborn photos. Mom had the cutest little slipper shoes for her and complete with boa we made her even MORE adorable. Seriously, I have the best job.



Have a fabulous fashion filled weekend!

You know those days when you want to just sit back and LAUGH at a hilarious movie? Well today is one of those days. I just want to sit here, watch a hilarious movie and paint my toenails. Of course, with my luck I'll laugh so hard that I'll mess up my toes and have to start again. Which means I'd have the start the movie again too. Ummmm, yeah...you figure that one out.

Today I did an impromptu shoot with one of my favorite girlies. She was such a fun model since I don't often get to shoot kids. And I got to thinking about how much potential she has and all the great things she can be as she grows up. And as I go through transitional phases in my own young life I think about how I never want to hear the words come out of my mouth that I have learned enough. I always want the desire to strive and become more. I want to continually set new goals, do the best I can in everything I put my hand to and most of all not be intimidated to dream big. Am I scared to delve into new territory? Darn tootin'! But I'm going to do it. Just wait. Even I can't wait to see where my life goes. In the meantime here's to one of the prettiest little models I've had the pleasure of freezing in time.


No Inside Voices Allowed

Four! Four, four, four, four....FOUR, FOUR!!!! I love games. And Pit has got to be one of my all time favorites. If you've never played, stop reading and go buy the game. We were introduced some years ago but couldn't find the game anywhere in California. So we had to fly out to New York to go and get it. While we were there, we decided to stay for our honeymoon. ;) We brought it home and its been a hit every time. When Mat stepped in to take my place I had to catch some of the action. Below are just a few faves. No inside voices in this game.

Technically perfect? Not in the least, but I LOVE him!!

On a totally different note, inside voices were in order when I "mentored" a newborn session. I had SUCH a good time doing this. I could do this often and love it. I taught someone how to use their camera, flash and about lighting. I am in no way an expert but it felt so good to give what knowledge I did have. Since I wasn't taking a ton of photos with my camera I only got a couple. This baby rocks the World of Long Toes. But I love this photo none-the-less. :)

Happy Monday!

They cradle him with love and tenderness that only a parent can feel. The instant he was born they knew they would do anything for him and I was so privileged to witness this phenomenon. Congratulations Nick and Jen on the addition of your newest little one. Enjoy your sneak peek! =)


Hannah::Gilroy Senior Photographer

She's one of six children--the oldest girl. Her smile is infectious and you can't help but chuckle when she doesn't quite get what you're talking about. Of course that could be because I'm a bumbling idiot when it comes to giving examples. My mind likes to quit on me that way. Anyhow, after doing this shoot I decided that in my next life I'm going to ask God for long legs. Hannah is beautiful in every way and her goodness is so evident in her demeanor. Thanks Hannah~enjoy your sneak peek!

...And what's any girl without her friends?? :) All three of them are b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l!
