Baby D & Family Were Back! | Santa Clarita Baby Photographer

I was so excited when Baby D’s parents booked a mini session in honor of his upcoming first birthday. This little guy is one big tornado of huge smiles, happiness, and cuteness. He didn’t disappoint! For this session, we wandered Hart Park in Newhall.

Meet Emily | Santa Clarita Photographer

Last weekend’s post got me thinking. I feel like I get to know my clients so well – I meet their families, find out about their interests, and catch their personalities on camera. Do my clients know ME though?  I decided to take the next few weeks and introduce you to MY family, my inspiration.  Last week you met Alex, my six year old son. This week, you get to meet Emily, my two year old daughter.

Emily is quite the spitfire. She has attitude and energy abounding.  She looks just like her daddy, but loves to sing at the top of her lungs in the car like her mommy. She thinks her big brother is the greatest thing in the whole, wide world. She hates having her picture taken. She keeps me on my toes and melts me with her sweet smiles, gentle hugs and innocent wonder.

Adorable Baby Bear | Valencia Infant Photographer

The E Family received a Cristen Farrell Photography Gift Certificate for Baby B’s baby shower. We had quite a time battling the weather – every time we would schedule, it would rain! This is Southern California, right? We eventually made it happen and it seemed like the timing was perfect for Baby B. He was such a happy, smiley baby! Isn’t he adorable?

3 Generations of Love | Santa Clarita Family Photographer

When “N” told me that I would be photographing not only her gorgeous kids, but also her son’s 3 week old daughter, I was so excited! Finally! A chance to pull out my soft blankies and adorable headbands. Baby “R” didn’t disappoint. She was the cutest little thing (she must take after her other family members!).

The Bonner Family’s Mini-Session | Santa Clarita Family Photographer

When I met the Bonner family, I knew that it was going to be a fun session. Little “B” was a ball full of energy and adorable to boot – right up my alley! I had a ton of fun running after the little guy and snapping shots of the newest Bonner on the way.

On a Personal Note | Santa Clarita Photographer

Since it’s almost Christmas and I’m going to be launching a few new products after the first of the year, I thought I’d skip Featured Product Wednesday in favor of a few quick personal thoughts.

As a photographer, I do my best to capture special moments and precious memories for all of my clients.  I’m so fortunate to have clients willing to share these with me. As a wife and a mom, I do my best to capture these for my own family and I’d like to take a moment to share them with YOU. At a time of the year when so many families are far apart and so many families barely have food on the table or gifts under the tree, it’s not hard to realize how lucky I really am. Above all, I am humbled by the gift of my family; I’m so very thankful for them.  Happy holidays from my family to yours. Here are a few memories close to my heart.

Thomas: My other half; my partner. We met 13 years ago and got married almost 10 years ago. We’ve seen our fair share of good times and gray skies. I still love him like the day we met and the day we got married.

Alex: Our miracle baby. We tried for a very long time to get pregnant – months and months of heartbreak. Then came Alex and our world was bright again – and has never stopped being bright. Almost 7 years ago, tears of joy streamed down my face when I heard my baby boy cry for the first time.

Emily: The firecracker. I wasn’t quite prepared for the wonderful chaos that my spirited daughter would create. Little Miss Personality has been keeping me on my toes for almost 2 years now and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

The Zegarra Family | Santa Clarita Family Photographer

Erin and I have been friends since we were practically in diapers (note that I’m not going to tell you how many years, for fear of aging myself – LOL). I was so happy when she booked with me – how wonderful to be able to capture such special memories for her. I had a ton of fun with her, her hubby, and her energetic little guy.

The Hills Family | Santa Clarita Family Photographer

The Hills Family braved one of the first very cold Fall days of 2010 for their mini session. Both of the Hills kids are simply adorable and their smiles could seriously light up a room. Oh, and fashionistas, check out “O”‘s adorable silver boots – they totally fit her personality! Thanks, Hills Family!

The Achzet Family | Santa Clarita, CA Family Photographer

I was so very excited when The Achzets purchased one of my Screamin’ Daily Deal coupons! Lori Ann & I have known each other since high school and, although there was quite a while when we were off doing our own things and weren’t in touch, over the past few years, we have become truly great friends. I’m also completely thrilled to help welcome “Baby D” into The Achzet’s life. Thanks for a wonderful session, guys – you made it easy!
