One of my best friends had her baby a couple of weeks ago, so I just HAD TO make a special trip over to Monterey to photograph baby E.  She is just as gorgeous as her older brother and sister (and her mommy!) and oh-so-sweet.  I adore her perfect little lips and all that wonderful hair!  Here are a few of my favorites…

I just found this great new spot for photo shoots, so I tried it out with the S. family last week.  My least favorite part was when I stepped into a giant mud puddle in the grass and covered my feet and shoes in mud (note to self: do not wear flip-flops to photo shoots) but other than that, the session went great!  Thank you, S. family!  I had a blast and I hope you enjoy your pictures!

I took another trip over to Monterey this week and had the opportunity to photograph these GORGEOUS children in downtown Carmel.  I am so happy with how they turned out.  Thank you, E.!!!  It was so much fun photographing your beautiful children!

I was so pleased to meet this adorable family over at the Horton Iris Garden in Loomis yesterday evening.  The weather was perfect and the lighting was so beautiful.  Thanks, once again, B. family!  Enjoy your sneak peek!
