Too cool for school, this kid
I’m a little backed up on my blogging, so this one is a little late!
Almost two months ago (!) I was very lucky to have the opportunity to take maternity photos for beautiful Fatima. Fatima is very proud of her Mexican American heritage and wanted to do the session at the San Gabriel Mission, near where she grew up. I had never been there before, but it is absolutely beautiful, with lots of great backdrops for photos. I was so thrilled when she arrived, because she looked so stunning. She has a very vibrant personality and her gorgeous blue dress and yellow flower in her hair matched perfectly.
As I shot, we talked about how excited she was for the arrival of her daughter, Alejandra (who was born a couple of weeks ago!). Fatima is going to be an amazing mama, and little Ale is going to be surrounded by love
Congratulations, Fatima and Lucio! And welcome to little Ale!
I was so excited to get to do this maternity session! I met Saskia when she was my daughter’s music teacher. She is so lovely and sweet and full of light, and all the kids in the class absolutely love her. I can imagine her little boy, who is due to arrive in just a few weeks, will feel just the same
We met on Father’s Day at one of my favorite parks and went for a walk. Saskia and her husband Will brought their canine friends Boji and Bleu Bell and we had a lovely time. They are so excited for their little boy to arrive, and the love between them is so obvious and sweet.
Thanks, you guys, I am so happy for you and can’t wait to meet your little boy!
If you’ve visited my blog before, you’ll notice the way I normally process my photos is very simple. No textures, tints – I like to capture a moment the way is really is.
But there are times when I feel like an image calls for a little something extra, and I totally admit a weakness for some gorgeous, warm, vintage-style processing. When I first saw this photo of my daughter on my computer screen, I immediately knew this image was one that would be so beautiful with a vintage feel.
I just love this photo. It is so soft and sweet, and it really looks like she is lost in the moment of feeling the breeze on her face. I *heart* my little girl
This week’s theme on I Heart Faces is “Whimsy”, and the guest judge is none other than the wonderful Barb Uil of JinkyArt, whose workshop I was lucky to attend last fall. I felt I had to enter in honor of Barb, and here is one of my favorite recent photos of my daughter, who reminds me every day to make room for whimsy in my life
