So excited to share this sweet and adorable one year cake smash session taken in our San Diego area, Carlsbad studio. We love cake smash sessions! We keep a full selection of beautiful wardrobe (everything pictured) and clients can use this during their session! Because we are full service, all you have to do is show up with your sweet little baby, and we'll handle the rest! We also provide a basic one color cake, including this naked style cake. Book your session today!
My daughter turned eleven in May. I am so blessed to do what I love as my job every day... snuggling all of your cute babies in the studio makes me think of my own children when they were that small. When people tell you it goes by fast, they are not kidding. And that is ever so evident when you do your own daughter's 11 year old portrait session at the beach. She's growing up in front of my eyes. We had been planning this shoot for a few months. We special ordered this gorgeous Amelia dress from Sew Trendy Accessories, and planned hair and her gorgeous floral crown (made by me from fresh flowers). She gave me her sweet and sassy personality through the shoot, and it was truly a fun time. I'm always just trying to soak in the good times with this kid. Love her dearly. Here are her images!
I have known this little one since she was just a few weeks old. I feel SO blessed looking at these photos, because this family has come back to me every year for their family portraits. I love my clients so much, and I'm so thankful that they have faith in me to capture artwork for them that will be in their families forever. LOVE this darling girl and her parents! <3 So happy that mom picked up this gorgeous dress from Dollcake Oh-So-Girly in Australia for her session. The bunny has been with her since she was a baby, and its looking a little tattered 6 years later. I love that she wanted to incorporate it into the session!!! These are some of my favorite images ever of this age. Just so sweet. :)
Thank you G Family! You guys are really special to me. www.lovelybabyphotography.com
More from this session coming soon! Everly's beach session was so much fun! I love shooting in beach areas with vegetation, so that we can get a beautiful variety of pictures. I provided all of the props and outfits for her session - a value added service that I offer for babies from newborn to one year. I also have an option to add fresh flower decorations to any session (I do them myself!). Loved this eight month beach photography session in Carlsbad.
I loved this cutie's session at the beach in Carlsbad, CA. There is nothing more adorable than a beach baby with sandy toes. Wardrobe is provided for babies 6 to 12 months, including these adorable vintage and modern little boy's outfits! I love being able to handle everything for my clients, so that all you have to do is show up with your precious little one!

I had SO much fun putting this adorable cake smash set together in pinks and teals! I designed the set, and made the cake as well! I do offer a Luxe Cake Smash Session that includes an adorable mini rosette cake in your colors. Contact me today to book! I do boy cake smash sessions also - I'm seeing something nautical coming up in the near future... :)
I was so happy to see these little ones last week! I photographed them as newborns and they came back to me at 7 months for portraits. Love their blue eyes and pretty red hair!
So behind on my blog posts, but I just had to share this darling little one that came in for her six month session. She did such a great job! More coming soon!
I cannot believe this little darling is turning ONE next month! We did a few family portraits at a nearby park, and then headed into the studio for her first birthday "cake smash". More pictures coming soon, but just a few shares for now. So excited to be capturing her birthday party celebration as well. Thank you for having me capture her first year!
What can be better than an amazing cake and a cute little toddler! Perfect combination today at the studio for little Nellie's cake smash session. We did some cute portraits, and then set out the cake and let her go for it.

I'm so excited about my brother's family photos this year. I have been doing their photos for several years in a row, and I really loved the session this year! The kids are growing like weeds, and we found a gorgeous location to shoot this year. I love shooting in the Fall - the sun stays lower all day, and the "golden hour" is exceptionally golden this time of year. Love my family... here they are!
So happy for this lovely family of three, who will soon become a family of four! Their little girl is so adorable... we got some great shots of her. The focus was on mom though, with her gorgeous belly. Excited to share since I've been SO behind on blogging and editing. This is my busiest few months of the year, wrapping up my busy wedding season, and holiday portrait sessions. More coming soon!
My son turned seven this last weekend... I cannot believe it! I did a carnival themed party for him, and went all out this year! It was a fun party at Funderland and he and his friends had a great time. I created all of the invitations and party decorations. I love party planning. I think if I was not doing photography, I would be planning fun and festive parties! I do sell the invitations at www.babycardexpressions.com.
We had a fabulous little getaway this past weekend. My husband's grandmother celebrated her 90th Birthday, and my mother-in-law put together a surprise party for her. We flew out with the kids, as well as my brother-in-law and sister-in-law, and their kids. The cousins had such a great time together! I had a few opportunities to take pictures, and I have to say, even though Panhandle and Amarillo, TX, are very FLAT... there were some GREAT country textures and backdrops for photos. We had a fun trip to the western store, where Nona and Grandpa bought each of the kids a pair of boots. We added in belts and hats, and had such a fun time on this family shopping trip. And here are some of the results! Thanks Nona & Grandpa Lew for such a great trip!
And... this was the guest of honor. Look at her beautiful face! I just love this picture. She's such a neat woman, and sharp as a tack at 90 years of age. Grandma Polly - you are an amazing woman.
Just one more share at the location where I will be holding my March cherry blossom mini session. I took my daughter out today for some fun. I also just added a beautiful bright blue umbrella to my collection. I love this time of year!
I have been loving all of the gorgeous warm weather lately. I cannot believe that all of the trees are in bloom right now, and I keep saying that I need to stop and shoot with my own children and the cherry blossoms! Today we were driving by this beautiful spot, and I decided to take some photos.
