N Family | Holiday Session

I loved how these turned out!
I loved the 2 locations and I'm glad we decided to take a chance and explore instead of going with a plain ole greenery backdrop!

This was suppose to be a quick mini session.  But this is why I don't really offer "mini" sessions.
I can't limit myself to only 20 minutes of shooting... especially when the beautiful sunset is tempting me with gorgeous light.  And I can't limit myself to only editing my top 10 pictures... how can I let all the other photos go to waste?!?

She's One | Catalina Island, CA

Avalon jub wm 
Summer is over! I didn't take many pictures (other than the ole iPhone), darn!

IMG_4340 jub wm 
We spent some time on Catalina Island, off the coast of Newport.  It was beautiful, it felt like we were in an old fashion beach/boat/boardwalk summer dream.

Can you believe my baby is turning one?

My girls woke up early one morning in Catalina, so we went on a walk and snapped some official "1 year old" photos of little Maybelle, and of course, her big sisters had to put on their new dresses too.

  They just adore baby sis.  It is sweet to see the instinctual bond that the three of them share together.

And, sometimes the photos don't turn out "right" but it is fun to see the attitude and personality shine through.

The girls dresses are from Pippy Lou.
Maybelle's romper is from Zulily.

Jada | Elementary Graduate

Here is Jada, she just graduated from elementary school.  She was so cute and timid at first, but as you can tell she warmed up in the end when we found her groove---jump ropes and hula hoops :)

The end of the photoshoot was great, the essence of little California girl--at the park, palm trees swaying, playing with her hula hoop and jump rope. We kept adding and adding to her outfit :)
