christie, nate and little olive || costa mesa, ca

One of my favorite families...and another blast from the past. Christie and I were on the yearbook staff in high school together way back when. It was so fun to see her again and photograph her adorable family! Newport back bay was the perfect setting, and Olive gave us a bunch of smiles. :)

angelo & antoinette || hollywood, california

Meet sweet little Angelo and Antoinette...two of the cutest twins I've ever photographed. They have beautiful big eyes, just like their daddies. :) It was so much fun to capture this family. You can feel the pure happiness and joy just being around them. I love my job. :)

baby carter || san jose, california

Welcome to the world baby Carter! My cousin and her husband had their third little adorable toe headed boy at the end of August! Those three boys are so very handsome. Older brothers Chase and Colby were full of energy and loved goofing around in front of the camera! Baby Carter was so sweet and stayed sleepy almost the entire time (woo-hoo!). And, we had to do a fishing themed photo for Brian (xoxo!) and it turned out to be adorable! 

baby tessa || san clemente, califonia

This much anticipated little lady is finally here! Meet Tessa Grace, the new baby girl to my good friends Christine and Johnny. It is incredible how a little baby can bring so much joy and peace into the world. It really makes you pause to appreciate the simple moments in life, like watching a baby's first smile. :) I am so happy for this perfect little family. They are already amazing parents and I am so excited to watch little Tessa grow into a beautiful little girl! Welcome to the world Tessa! You are so loved!

baby josie and big sister emmy || los angeles, ca

These two adorable girls were so much fun to photograph. Baby Josie was just under two weeks old and the perfect little model. Proud older sister Emmy was jumping around most of the time but was so sweet and gentle with her little sister. Congratulations to parents Minh-Chau and Previn. You make such a beautiful family!
