Ok I have to admit I have never ran out of gas in my entire life until the morning of Hudson's portfolio session!! I was literally down the street and my car just puttered out! How professional I thought. First porfolio session of my career and I had to call the mom for a ride! I called, I confessed and she rushed over to me assuring me that this has happened to her before. Thank you for an understanding mama!! Thankfully the actual session didn't start out as rocky as the intial meeting! Hudson was well, a PRO! To mom's relief he was a natural and did not complain once!!
This blue outfit really made his eyes pop!
At this point he was really hamming it up and I was loving it!!
We took a trip over to the train. It didn't have great light but it sure made Hudson light up!
Such the natural poser!
We took a little break to have some juice and play with a slinky that he didn't quite know how to use so he just swung it around!! He loved it!
Miss Ariana turned One last month and boy was she excited. We started this little missy's birthday bash in old folsom. This girl celebrates in style! Look at those gold balloons. Miss thang gave me so many smiles it was hard to narrow down these beautiful images.
I just love capturing little ones posing with such swagger. Look at that leg bend. she is a natural!! and those tiny hands and tiny feet!
Of course we had to celebrate with mommy and daddy! They have so many things to be grateful for on your birthday! You are their little miracle baby and celebrating you is the most important thing to them!
I just adore when mommy and baby look into eachothers eyes. I'm sure it takes you back to those midnight feedings all over again. Looking in to those eyes while she drifts back off to sleep.
My daddy and I have a speical bond, he makes me laugh laugh laugh!!
Of course this October baby had to get some shots at Zittels pumpkin patch! She look so big next...
It was such a delight to catch up with these little gentlemen. This drought has been really tough on California but it has also unveiled some gorgeous foregrown for photographers to take full advantage of. Im channeling my glass half full side! If it was a rainy season all these rocks (that make natural seating) would most likely be under water. With a beautiful bed of rocks, an aging rainbow bridge and a growing Kosciuk Family... in height not numbers (I mean look at those long legs on those boys) it made for a beautiful evening.
Mr B! is it for baseball or Braden? The two do go hand in hand!
Mr. Adam or shall we say Scotty. I'm pretty sure its the cutest thing ever that his mom calls him that and it was pretty much his name by the end of the shoot if it was up to me!
It was such a delight to catch up with these little gentlemen. I had the pleasure of teaching them in preschool as well as many nights of babysitting followed by great con...
We orginally planned this shoot just for little Ella but we took one look at the location and had to incorporate both girls. Such graceful little girls there was no question, both of them had to be a part of it. Ella is such a nautral caregiver to her little mini me she made the experience flawless. Ava was full of smiles for me and definately knew how to work the camera.
After getting a few shots of the girls together and Ava alone it was time for miss Ella's close up. Her soft and gentleness with her sister flows through every aspect of her personality all the way to her sweet little rabbit.
Mama was looking for the sun kissed flare look and we were definately able to achieve that by the light of the lake and purple flower field. We took a little walk from the purple flowers to this beautiful field of dry grass where Ella got to try out her fairy princess side. She got a kick out of it and I got a kick out of trying to get her to grant a wish to the sky and flowe...
One year old Jett and I recently had a play date at Castle Park in Folsom. A place of many fond memories for his mother and I. Where many after school shenanigans took place and endless hours of laughter. Brittany (Jett's mom) and I were only acquaintances growing up. Being a year apart in school we had many mutual friends and experiences that tied us together but never really became friends. It wasn't until years later when Miss Anderson became Mrs. Smith and then Mommy Smith that our friendship has grown and I have been so blessed to watch her children grow up into little people!
So back to Jett and my play date. This play date was not like most of my play dates with my little people I photograph. This time we had a real super cool airplane prop (provided by another one of my clients! I love having awesome clients) I mean rightfully so for a boy named JETT!! Gotta have a theme with that name! And boy does his name fit! I think you might have a future pilot in your hands...
