Dyer Family

The session with the Dyer family was completely lovely. I’m absolutely lucky with every client I get to work with, and this family was no exception. The kids were wonderful, always having fun and smiling for the camera, they were an absolute wonder and so fun to work with! Getting to work with the family so closely was a blessing, they’re such a loving family, as you are about to see in the pictures.

What I loved most about this session, was the coziness of it all, which the weather also kind of helped, the mom got to pick wonderful outfits for this chilly and cozy weather. Shooting the pictures in their living room and outdoors, seeing them interact in the comfort of their own home and how happy they all are was so fulfilling.

At the end of this amazing session, after all the fun we had, we were still able to give Mom and Dad some alone time for some beautiful shots!

Thank you 2018!

In the midst of all the craziness of this season, I would like to take a moment to say thank you to each and everyone of you. It’s a wrap for 2018, and I’m happy to say it was a great one! Thank you to all the families that trusted in me to capture those special moments, working with people like you is what makes my job so great, and that’s something for which I’m truly thankful. You’re all part of my little family and you all mean so much to me.

It was a year full of great moments, and very big for myself both personally and professionally; I was blessed to get a brand new webpage and new image and this was also the first year that Santa came in to the studio, filling it with joy!

To all the new families that let me peek into your lives, thank you, and to the returning families, there’s nothing I enjoy more than watching you grow!  I wish you all the best this holiday season and in the coming year. And I will hopefully see you next year with more surprises!! 2019, I can’t wait!

Here’s to a year in a life!

Rossy Family

Oh how I just adore the family I’m blogging about today. I’m lucky enough to say I’ve been photographing the Rossy family for 3 years now! I truly can’t believe how much the children have grown and changed since I first met them.

When they called me to take their photos again, I don’t think I could have scheduled them fast enough.  I immediately began counting down the days to our session!

And as for the day of the shoot, I  had so much fun! ! They had a pretty great time, too. The kids enjoyed exploring the place and playing around so much!Fam2

Ximena’s 7th Birthday Party

In the midst of planning my daughter’s 7th birthday – and if you’ve been following me for any length of time, you know that I spend an embarrassing amount of time on my childrens’ birthday parties – we began going round and round on what this year’s theme was going to be. The theme Ximena picked was Coco, based on the Mexican holiday Dia de Muertos, a holiday that could look like a Mexican Halloween but is much more than that, it’s a celebration to our beloved ones that have passed away. An altar is placed to honor them and remember them, in this case, Ximena placed the pictures of her great grandparents and decorated the altar beautifullyI love that she embraces a little part of Mexico in everything that she does.

She was so involved in the decorations and planning, she even helped me make the gift bags for her friends (inspired by Frida), which are adorable.

Once the theme and venue were pinned down, we were ready to get going on the décor. I’m normally not a huge fan of color, but for this party I knew it was going to be pretty colorful. I focused on her two favorite colors, pink and purple, any girls favorite colors right!! Lucky for us purple papel picado is also very traditional in the Day of the Dead holiday.

The guests were welcomed with Mexican traditional dresses, which they were trilled to try on. And how about those amazing flower crowns? Stunning right? I was lucky enough to work with Aniskas Creation to create a unique flower crown for each girl.

The papel picado was the main attraction, there was a wall with papel picado all over it, perfect for pictures, the girls plates also had papel picado in different shapes, forms and colors!

The dessert table is the heart of a party and this Coco birthday party certainly lives up to all expectations. It oozes Mexican traditions and Day of the Dead decorations. Let’s not forget about the cake, as you will see, it was beautifully decorated with Coco themed fondant decorations, such as papel picado, a Mexican guitar and some Day of the Dead skulls.

The party was full of surprises, Mama Imelda, Ximenas favorite character in the movie, came to the party to sing and dance with the girls, a Mexican piñata was obviously part of the party, and the girls got to experience the whole Mexican Dia de Muertos, eating pan de muerto and traditional Mexican bread, they also got to decorate their own Coco guitars and to paint their calavera masks. They received a personalized placemat with their name as well.

Overall the kids had a blast and most importantly Ximena got to enjoy her every own un poco loco fiesta!!

Fresh 48: Sebastian.

You might be wondering if there’s that big of a difference between Fresh 48 and newborn. The answer is YES. Fresh 48 sessions take place in the hospital during daylight hours before discharge to go home. Babies are photographed just as they are, in their little hospital hat and iconic blanket. All those special moments at the hospital where your baby is as little as he will ever be, will forever be treasured in photographs. And if you get to do both, you’ll be amazed by the changes your baby will have in a matter of days.

I can honestly say that I loved this session, cause as a mom I can relate to this truly beautiful moment, it changes your life and your family’s. During the shoot, it was so sweet to watch Sebastian being held by his parents, admiring all of his little features. You could see how happy they were contemplating their amazing, unique, and super adorable baby. What was also super sweet, was watching Nico become an older brother, you can see how excited he is in the pictures, and the sweetest thing was, his new little brother, Sebastian, got him some paw patrol cars so he wouldn’t feel left out. Nico instantly fell in love with his little brother, he even aligned his new cars to play with him, it was adorable to watch and beautiful to capture.
