We've all been waiting for these beach photos! Family Photographer Fresno

You may recognize this beautiful family if you have been following my blog. I had the pleasure of photographing them once again, this time at the beach. The images from our day together turned out fabulous! I especially LOVE the sunset silhouettes we were able to capture. Here is a sampling of what we accomplished.

These images look so beautiful and classic "aged".

We are Back!

Our past 7 days was heavenly on California's Central Coast. My husband and I enjoyed the cool ocean breezes, walks on the beach, and sleeping in every morning. The two of us have been going non-stop in our respective worlds for months now, so this was a well deserved retreat.

Even though I was on a "break", I could not get photography off my mind. I had some time to explore the antique shops on the coast and found a couple of goodies to use with my future newborn subjects. I also had one of my all time favorite families join us on Tuesday afternoon for photos on the beach, I will be posting a sneak peek of their session soon.

Below is our attempt to take a photo to remember our second anniversary with. Well, without a third person this is a tough task. Luckily I brought my trusty tripod! Running to get in position after clicking that timer is always an adventure... especially in the sand dunes.

Although he was Mr. Serious in this test shot, my husband has a way of looking great in almost any photo I take of him. Thats Morro Rock in the background.

Celebrating 2 Years of Marriage.

My husband and I are celebrating our 2 year wedding anniversary this week! Because my husband is beach man, I am taking him out of this hot valley to the cool breezes of the Central California Coast for a week. It will be a time of rejuvenation and fun. Stay tuned for the photos when we get back.

Below is my African King and I on our wedding day.

FYI: I will have limited to no access to the web during the next week. Any emails will be answered shortly after we get back on July 26th.

Another Big Boy

Yesterday I photographed my 3rd newborn boy in the last month or so that was over 10 lbs at birth. At only 5 days old, this little peanut gave me some of the biggest newborn smiles I have ever captured. Thank you baby "A" for an A+ performance!

BLESSED. Fresno Baby Photographer

This little man stole my heart. He has a very special story that has become an inspiration to me, making me long so much more for my future family. He is a blessing to every soul he comes in contact with. He has a big future ahead of him, I look forward to seeing him grow.

99 days

Mom's family has a tradition to photograph their babies at 99 days old... and this time it was little Jake's turn. He did wonderful during his big photo day with lots of smiles, and even took a little nap giving us the opportunity to add to his repertoire of sweet sleepy shots.

Are they twins?

Not quite... these two are cousins (and I am sure future best friends) at only 6 days apart. They are just over two months now, and it was a real gift to get them both asleep at the same time for such a precious shot. I photographed miss Amelia originally when she was only 4 days old, this time it was Olivia's turn.
And what an exquisite image of this little angel and her beautiful mommy!

My Biggest Little Star. Newborn Photographer Fresno

I photographed this lovable bundle at 11 days old and he is already topping 11 pounds. He was a delightful baby to photograph, letting me move him around as much as I wanted. I loved this first image so much it is now displayed as the "intro" photograph to my website.

Happy Independence Day everyone!

Her first year of life. Fresno Baby Photographer

Here is yet another repeat subject. I first met Miss Madison when she was still in the womb, a mere 6 days before her birth. I then photographed her 4 more times in this last year. She sure has grown, while still keeping that sweet face of hers. It has been a wonderful year with you Maddy!

Here is her year in review at 7 months, 3 months, 9 days and in the womb.

Blue Eyed Angel. Creative Baby Photographer Fresno

This was not the first time I have photographed this sweet 7 month old, she was a tiny newborn when she made her introduction in front of my camera. This time she is sitting up, full of personality. That tongue of hers could not stay inside her mouth. Take a look!

Here she is at only 12 days old, what dark hair she had!

Splish Splash I was Taking a Bath...

Another adorable photo shoot with little ladybug. (You may recognize her previously as the sleeping baby in the field from my March 6th blog post.) Mommy has childhood memories of her taking a bath in a metal tub outside, and wanted to capture those same backyard memories for her daughter. I think we got it!

Oops, splashed a little too much!
I thought I would share this fun out take with you.


I am back from my very smoky Yosemite break (from all these fires here in California) and off to work again. Before I left I had the opportunity to photograph these two sisters. They really made me work for their images, and it was worth every second as we captured some wonderfully playful portraits of the two of them.
