My First Family Session!

Yay, everyone’s looking, even baby!

Like where papa bear holds up baby bear!

So sweet

This one’s meant to be cherished forever

Such an adorable big sis, not to mention so sweet! I just loved her.

That look! is just adorable! =)

I don’t know…do they look like they just gave birth 3 months ago? and are also parents of 3?!

(…ok I confess I photoshopped out the baby’s head that was sticking out of Trisia’s arm. )

Mother-daughter : )

How could this not make you happy?

I Love this one!

A moment in time

(“say) Cheese!” doesn’t usually cut it, and I don’t want to cut the cheese…so I had to plan on how to get shots like these

so happy!

Now for a few sequences!

Adele’s Turns 1! Birthday Party ~ Slideshow

Slideshow:


And below are a few favorites from the day!

I seriously enjoyed working on every single photo because she was so adorable in each one of them and she had a million expressions, each one differing some cute way in each and every picture. In the hundreds of photos I took, she really did have a different, adorable expression in each one. I could hardly believe a one year old could have that many looks and expressions!

I should do a post just dedicated to

She’s an angel eating cake on the floor

The candle blowing

The cake! I love this one…

adele_3_lowresb

Mmmm…

She loved the balloons, and the ribbon too…I loved the light falling off of the balloons and lighting up her face.

her new booties, how sweet they were.

I hope this one lasts a long, long time…

There were 4 generations of women present…Great-grandma, grandma, mom, and baby Adele!
In my family there are 4 too, but it’s nearly impossible to take a photo together.

Time for some me time to just relax after my party!

adele_9_lowresb

Last photo! Look familiar? That’s because it’s a favorite… I’m glad I stayed past the end of the party, because I got this one AFTER the party, during cleanup!

Fun fun twins!

While Timon was gone for the camping trip, I drove around to scout for locations where I could do the family session which was going to be last Saturday, and couldn’t help but spot these two girls having SO MUCH FUN together at a park in santa clarita. They were laughing hysterically non-stop and immediately stood out to me as the perfect photo opp.

The mom happens to be the owner of Creation Station, a dance class for kids in studio city (creationstationstudiocity.com), and she told me that her husband is actually a photographer! How scary to email a photographer’s family a photo of their own beautiful girls whom I’m sure he’s taken plenty of beautiful pictures of!

When I started seeing the photo in my head, I remembered the advice that I got from a photographer who I just met last week. He told me the first and best thing to do is to get over being afraid of using my camera on people.

So last week I went along with Kat from Next Exit Photography to learn from her as she took photos for the city of Santa Monica for their new advertising campaign, and help get waivers signed from people we ended up photographing. This is exactly what was unknown territory to me and I wanted to see how another photographer does it. I definitely gained a lot from going out with her and appreciated her so much. I definitely wouldn’t have gotten this photo without the bit of advice about confidence I learned from her and her husband.
