a newborn shoot.

Baby "A" was born on my birthday, so I think it is quite fitting that I got to be his very first photographer (well, besides mom and grandma, ha ha!). There are no words to describe the session, so I will just let the photos speak for themselves.

The S. Family

Wow, what a great Sunday!! We went to a really gorgeous location, and the family was really fun and cooperative! Mom, dad, and baby "D" were naturals- interacting with each other, playing, and what a gorgeous girl! She was all-around entertaining: making silly faces, getting super close to the camera, and telling me all the animal noises she knows. I had such a good time. I was so nervous going into it, and I feel like I forgot about a million things while the shoot was happening. There were many shots that I had planned in my head that I completely forgot about when we were there, but I am really happy with the session as a whole. I hope the family enjoys their photos!
Thank you again, S family!!!!

crazy week.

To say that it has been a crazy week is the understatement of the year. Monday started off with bad news, a death of my friend's husband, who left behind three young daughters, one of whom turned two on Tuesday. September 11th was my birthday, my twin's birthday, my cousin's birthday, and the birth of my first maternity client's baby! Baby A was born around 3 pm!

All this and more. On Monday, I got a text from my twin's boyfriend: "what size ring does Jen wear?" Me: "Why? :)" and then of course I gave him my best guess. I knew what he was planning, and I must say that Ron was very brave to ask me because he should know that I have a hard time keeping secrets from her. (We usually tell each other EVERYTHING.)
Ron asked my parents for their blessing a few days later, and today he proposed!!!! I'm so excited for them both, and I will be taking some photos of them as soon as they come out to visit. It was the perfect happy ending to such an otherwise terrible week.

Love you two!!! Congrats!

I wish every weekend could be a three-day weekend. I miss the beach and the sound of the waves, crashing in, one after the other. We actually spent the weekend in San Diego, visiting both the Zoo and the Wild Animal Park. The animals were gorgeous and we had so much fun together.
