3 days of rest...

Reflecting over the last few weeks I realized I have had the honor to photograph a myriad of babies of all different ages, shapes, sizes and tones. I love the beautiful variety of clients that find me!

I am finally taking a much needed break this weekend and going camping in Yosemite with a large group of friends. We have planned this trip for 3 months now, and some of us will be hiking half dome, but I wont be one of them... I will enjoy nature while staying firmly planted in Yosemite Valley.

Thank you to all of you that continue to be patient while I get to your galleries and orders. I will be back at work early Monday morning.

Full Circle. Newborn Photography Hanford

This is the new arrival from a wonderful couple I photographed in April. Together we were able to capture so many outstanding photographs of little Matthew. He cooperated better than any 2 week old baby I have photographed. Look at that sweet face and great eye contact!

An Active Little Man

Mom warned me that her 11 month old has been walking since he was 8 months! He is no longer walking, but running circles around everyone. His bright eyes and warm smile melted my heart.

My Oh My, how fast they grow!

You may recognize this big boy's newborn photograph below when he made his first debut in January. Now look at him, as proud as ever at 5 months old.

It was through this baby's newborn session that I fell in love with the "Historic Fresno High" area, which prompted our recent move. Now my husband and I not only have this family as new neighbors, but great friends as well. They even made it to our party last weekend. This means I get to watch baby Noah grow every few months with my camera, as well as seeing him more regularly on neighborhood walks and dinners.

Thanks Grandpa for giving the gift of photography to Noah for his first year of life, if it was not for you, I would not have such wonderful new friends, and probably would not have found our new home.

A Special Treat. Baby Photography Fresno

Today I had a wonderful afternoon with Baby Conner and his family. He was a surprisingly sleepy little boy at 9 weeks old... I am not usually able to capture these "newborn" looking images of babies this old, so Conner was a real treat!

I could just stare at this first image all day, what a special bond this Father and Son have. Conner even has Daddy's smile.

A wonderful evening of joyful celebration

On a more personal note... my husband and I spent the last 3 days preparing for our long awaited house warming celebration that we hosted last night. It was a colorful and exciting evening of culture, fellowship, food and the most beautiful mixture of vocal and instrumental music. Guests participated in the 2+ hour long African Drum Circle adding to the percussion frenzy and dynamic dancing in our backyard.

Friends left with an uplifted spirit and requests for another opportunity to join together in musical merrymaking. Multicultural gatherings, such as this, is one of the great blessings of marrying a man from halfway around the world.

I look forward to the next time our new and old musical friends can once again gather together for another uplifting day of fun. Thank you everyone who contributed to yesterday's event, it went well beyond my expectations and dreams.

I briefly picked up my camera to capture a few moments from our magical night, ENJOY.

Below is my beloved husband starting off his percussion debut on the tambourine... (he later moved on to more exciting instruments)

Finally, Happy Father's Day to all you wonderful Daddies! Now that we have cleaned up, I am going to go lie down and recover from the festivities.

Sweet Mommy. Beautiful Maternity Photography Fresno

This precious Mommy is expecting her second son which I get to meet in August! I had great fun pulling out all my tricks to get an active 4 year old interested in taking photographs with Mommy, and it was worth it, we captured some wonderful images!

There is something so sweet about the photograph below, window light creates some of the most beautiful highlights and shadows adding to this wonderful moment.

It has been a little while since I have done a maternity session, and this mother-to-be was a wonderful subject. She was easy going, a natural in front of the camera, and has a beautiful belly. What more can I ask for? I now await for the moment I get to meet little Logan. Stay tuned...

The baby girl I have been waiting for. Artistic Baby Photography Fresno

This little darling melted my heart with that sweet smile stretching from ear to ear, a contagious giggle, and that beautiful twinkle in her eyes. She was an enthusiastic baby making her a real pleasure to photograph!

Boys, boys, boys...

I just noticed I have had a little string of baby boys for the last week or so that I have been photographing. Tomorrow is my first girl in two weeks.

I have also had the honor to photograph 4 Navy families in the last month. These "high flying" Daddies are all away on the boats serving our country. Thank you all for your sacrifice.

What a cute photograph of brotherhood. This big brother was so helpful and wonderful to work with, you were great Jacob! I know Mom is going to love this one.

Getting big!

Here is yet another little man I have had the joy of watching grow. I first met him 4 sessions ago when he was in the womb. He gets more and more handsome each time I see him.

A beautiful family! Child Photographer Fresno & Clovis

How lucky I was to photograph this one of a kind family yesterday. They were such a delight, I could not have asked for better subjects. I cant wait to photograph them at the beach this summer!

4 months of wisdom

This beautiful blue eyed boy gave me a myriad of wonderful expressions. Some of the most fascinating expressions were the ones where he almost seemed to peer into my soul. He has some wisdom behind those eyes.

Thanks mom for being so enthusiastic, I had a great time with you and look forward to having you in my future class I will be offering on "How to capture your children's memories".
