San Marino Lacy Park Family Photography

August 27th, 2014

I had one of the best photo sessions at Lacy Park in San Marino with these cute twins.  We got to run and jump and play together, while getting some pretty cool photographs of their family.

Baby Harvest was the sweetest little girl to photograph!  I love her sweet smiles and giggles here at home with mom and dad.  They sure are lucky to have such a happy baby.

Los Angeles LDS Temple Wedding

August 27th, 2014

Aundrea and Nate had a beautiful day for their sealing in the Los Angeles LDS Temple.

The flowers were in bloom and the light was gorgeous.

I love the turquoise the wedding party was wearing and the bright colors in the bouquets.

And the best part was that they wanted to go to In-N-Out after their temple wedding, before heading off to the reception.  So we grabbed a burger at In-N-Out just down the street from the temple.

Baby’s First Year Birthday Cake Smash!

August 1st, 2014

Our baby girl, Nora, is one year old today!  I can’t believe my baby is growing up so fast.  She is a mellow, giggly, happy girl almost all of the time, and she is one of my earliest talkers. She has already said “mama”, “dada”, “more”, “owie” and “hello”. Nora has also just started walking about 4-5 steps at a time. We love this little girl! She melts all our hearts, especially her 3 big brothers.

In honor of her first birthday, my friend Brittany with Briar Photography helped me style a first birthday photography session and cake smash.  We went to Eaton Canyon in Pasadena, which would have been great except they closed the gates at 7pm, so Brittany being an awesome friend, took our cars one at a time and parked them outside the wilderness area and walked back.  That is a true friend! I was so grateful for her saving the day.

I love Nora’s wobbly standing!

Those eyes! We still cannot tell what color they really are.  They sometimes look blue, golden and green.  Maybe she will be a true Hazel.

Isn’t this the cutest little rocking chair?  We borrowed it from a friend, and I’m so glad because she is adorable in it.  Look at that little foot pose!

She is a perfect little lady with her roaring 20’s ruffle romper.

Nora could not stop playing with her pearls! I think she likes them.

This cake is adorable!  My friend, Crystal, made this pretty little pink rosette cake and it was almost too cute to smash.  Almost.

Nora was so dainty that she wouldn’t even touch the cake at first.

When she tried it, she wasn’t sure what to think.  She looks pretty quizzical.

But then she decided that she likes cake after all.

Baby girl was eating it all up, until…

“It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to! You would cry too if it happened to you!”

The end! Nora was finished with cake smash photo session.

Happy 4th of July!

July 4th, 2014

Happy Independence day from our family to yours! We will be having a barbeque, swimming and setting off small fireworks with our kids.  What do you have planned today?

Our boys love Nora, always wanting to hug and kiss her, which actually bugs her sometimes when she is trying to do something else.  She is 11 months now and crawling all over the place.  She likes to pull up to standing and cruise, but no walking yet.  I think she’s a bit more cautious than our boys were, at this age they were running around already!  I think she is so cute in this little 4th of July ruffle romper.
