Mama's hair and makeup by Jill Steward
The weather has been so beautiful lately in San Diego! When my past client contacted me from Northern California to let me know she was in town and wanted a session, I knew right where I was going to take them! Gorgeous Windandsea Beach is the perfect setting for a maternity or family session at the beach. Low tide is the best time to go, for the gorgeous exposed cliffs. So beautiful! And it was SO fun for me to see these two older kids - I photographed them both as newborns! They are now 6 and 4! How fast time flys! And it was very special for me to catch up with this beautiful family. Thank you for visiting me in sunny San Diego!
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
I loved working with this family so much! I think I have an extra soft spot because I photographed Krish's birth in late December. And I loved that the family brought some heirloom items to include in their shoot as well. Welcome little guy - so sweet with his perfect little head of hair! I have to say that I am thankful every time I walk into my studio. I'm thankful for my clients, and for being able to do what I love for work. I love creating beautiful artwork that will go on the walls of the families that I work with. It just feels good knowing that I can capture these snippets of time for parents.
This is another favorite family of mine... adding baby number two! I shot mom and dad's engagement and wedding. And I shot Zoey's maternity, newborn and first year portraits. And now I am shooting their new baby boys maternity and newborn portraits! I love clients that come back year after year, and to see their families grow! I also love that mom wanted to have matching floral crowns for her and her daughter. This is something that I offer as an add on to your session. They are fresh flower crowns - so beautiful!
We're excited to shoot more beach maternity sessions in Southern California, including La Jolla and Windandsea Beach.
I promised more images of this beautiful family. So fun to have worked with them from engagement session to wedding, to baby number two!
A little personal post... my family spends a lot of time at Lake Tahoe in the Sierras. This is one of my favorite peaceful places in the world. We've enjoyed some time there this summer exploring. My sister-in-law stumbled on this gorgeous field of lupine flowers, and I could not resist taking some casual photos.
Sweet little Venture did a GREAT job during his session. Proud big sister did too (with a little bit of M&M bribery). Congratulations to the new family of four!
Such a beautiful family! Sweet little Priscilla did so well for her session!
One of my favorite parts of what I do is seeing babies grow! I photographed Paxton in his first week of life... and he's back at age one! SO adorable! We did an outdoor family session for him, as well as going back into the studio for some cute portraits and a CAKE SMASH! Loved his session... so cute!
Sweet little guy in the studio just before the holiday!
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!
Loved shooting family photos for some of our good friends at Lake Tahoe during a weekend away. You cannot go wrong in Tahoe... so much beauty! This is one of my favorite little fields with gorgeous aspen trees and a pretty field.
We spent last weekend with our good friends at their home in Lake Tahoe, and took them out to one of my favorite Lake Tahoe fields. You can't go wrong with a beautiful family with perfect golden light!
I had the pleasure of working with this lovely couple that are expecting twins in May! I cannot wait to meet their sweet little babies, very soon!
Sweet little Miss Evan!
