If ever pure, sweet love was somehow manifested in the form of a boy, this is that boy.
Love shoots off of this boy like beams of light. Anyone that spends time with him can feel it. It is a gift.
Seriously. Those eyes.
Happy fifth birthday to my incredibly special boy. Thank you for blessing us with your love.
Here are the ones I’ll be squeezing tomorrow (and everyday). Love!
Being self-employed, my husband and I end up working on most of the federal holidays. But we decided to actually observe MLK day and do something fun with our kiddos. I’ve been craving Ocean Beach, so we hit the city. It was one of those amazing San Francisco days – super thick, cool fog burning off by around 11 am to brilliant blue skies and sun – except, as we discovered, for the last 6 blocks as you near the ocean. We drove right into a wall of fog, and it was pea soup on the beach – so dense that we couldn’t even see the ocean as we walked up onto the sand.
We could hear it, so we knew it was there, although even the sound seemed muffled by the heavy mist that hung in the air.
It was beautiful, mystical, and a little eerie. Couldn’t have asked for anything better.
Just adore the ‘do on this little man. Not to mention those killer baby blues.
Thanks, AJ, Paula, and Dan!
Over the summer, we had an amazing trip to Chincoteague Island in Virginia. Horse lovers will know that wild ponies live on neighboring Assateague Island, and that this is the setting for Marguerite Henry’s beloved “Misty of Chincoteague” series of children’s books. My girl is horse crazy, and her joy was complete. Of course, horses (and girls that love them) make fantastic photo subjects, so I was pretty happy, too.
A slice of heaven right here for my girl:
His name was “Mr. Sinatra”:
The only girl cousins:
Cousin Rachel is a gymnast:
My daughter flies.
I photographed Lyn and Scott’s wedding a couple years ago (see it featured on my new website!) and a few weeks ago I had the joy of meeting and photographing their sweet sweet Sabrina. I wore a big goofy grin the entire time I edited these images.
It’s been all about the babies lately. So Much Fun! Here’s little Joey with his gorgeous mama Dianne. Someday soon I’ll get some more shots of this whole fabulous family – Joey has two very handsome older brothers…
Mark and Kate and Maggie and Lucy were hanging out in our backyard a while ago. It’s inspiring to witness the joy that Mark and Kate bring to the incredibly challenging job of parenting twins. Take a moment to view the slideshow.
Lucky lucky lucky lucky lucky Kristina and Paul and Scarlett.
And lucky lucky lucky lucky me.
Success with Lisa’s family portrait session! Got 2 minutes 40 seconds? Take a peek at the slideshow (and enjoy my all time favorite Uni tune).
