summer fun at the beach! (Malibu family photographer)

I first met Kara and Andy and their handsome little boys Collin and Linden FIVE years ago (OMG, has it really been that long??) when they were in 3-year-old preschool with my Jake. I remember when I first photographed them years ago I was amazed at how photogenic their whole family was (and still IS, obviously!) I absolutely ADORE shooting little boys – their crazy laughter and sweet smiles just make my heart happy. We had a great time splashing around and running from the waves – what a great way to start the day :)

just one – for Corena….

more coming soon- but I know that Corena will love this one of sweet Holland…..

Check back soon for her other lovelies….

introducing – the adorable Anbilliene!

All babies are sweet – but little Miss Anbilliene had such a sparkle in her eye – I think I fell in instant love with her adorable little face! Its easy to see where she gets her good looks – just look at her beautiful parents! If Daddy looks familiar – you might be a *General Hospital* fan. I have to admit – I watched GH all my life, but gave it up several years ago – now I find myself strangely drawn to the TV again every afternoon….

Seriously – aren’t they easy on the eyes?

I headed out to beautiful Paradise Cove a few weeks back to photograph the lovely Miss Sophie – It was a tad bit chilly for a beach session, but that didn’t stop this little one – you could tell she will grow up to be quite the ocean lover! Mom was not really *planning* on being in the shots – but I sort of twisted her arm – and I am so happy, because I think some of these mother-daughter photos are simply adorable!

This beautiful little woodland fairy was perfectly happy to go traipsing around the woods with me…..that is, until she saw the stream! Then her eyes lit up and all she wanted to do was splash and giggle, splash and giggle, splash and giggle – every photographer’s dream!!! Isn’t she just the most adorable little kiddo ever??

Happy Mother’s Day!

Wishing all the Moms out there a very happy day! Here is one quick shot of my baby girl…

28 days of love…..

bright-eyed beauty, baby *b*

I could keep adding photos to this post for weeks! This beautiful baby girl is the daughter of one of my best friends! LISA is a WONDERFUL photographer and I had so much fun visiting with her in beautiful San Luis Obispo – such yummy photographer eye candy everywhere you look! We normally see each other every two months or so – this time it had been over 10 months – which is FAR too long. I’ll be headed back soon for little *b*s first birthday, I can’t wait, she is SOOO much fun to photograph!

New Year, new blog – and what better way to kick it off than to show off some gorgeous gals at the beach! Not only are they lovely – but they were so much fun AND it made my heart happy to see the love between them…

Happy New Year….
