Photographing two people in love has got to be the best job in the world! Can’t wait to show the rest of these photos from this December wedding in sunny California.
I really love lifestyle sessions. Like really love them. Being able to photograph a newborn or family in their space, following them around to their favorite places, doing their favorite things, is just so sweet and special. It was especially special for this family because they are moving from Santa Monica, CA to Idaho soon, so these pictures are some of the last of their time in California.
I also really love baby feet, if you couldn’t tell. They’re just so wrinkly and soft and cute.
Baby William is lucky to be in this family with two big brothers. Thanks again Merrell Family for inviting me into your home to capture William as a newborn.
I had such a wonderful time photographing baby Charlie and his parents in Marina del Rey. He is such a calm and content baby. I think he was about 13-days-old when we took these pictures, but by how relaxed and sweet he is in these pictures, you’d think he’s older. I love what Tara did with his nursery, it’s beautiful!
I can’t wait to photograph this family again before they move to Austin, Texas in August!
A few thoughts came to my mind while editing these pictures:
1. Tatia looks amazing!!! (This was only THREE days after giving birth)
2. Max was a big boy at birth – almost 9 pounds. Big babies worry me… for my own labor/birth, that is.
3. Doesn’t Tatia look SO good?! I can’t stop thinking that.
4. Penny is such a good big sister.
5. Jake, I can’t forget you, you’re a wonderful dad.
I am so happy I was actually IN town when Tatia had baby Max. I was able to see him and photograph him while I was in Texas. What a blessing! I cannot say enough good things about this family; Tatia is such a fabulous sister-in-law and I love her sweet family. Thank you for letting me capture these moments for you!
Penny was a little hesitant at first. But she warmed up pretty quickly. I loved her Big Sister shirt.
She was so soft with her little brother, too cute!
And sometimes this is how the older child feels; left out.
