With a 6 month pregnant belly a almost 2 year old that wants to be held most the time and my bag of beach stuff bringing my camera to the beach seemed like a bad idea. Since I had to double think it I decided to bring it…. Sometimes “bad ideas” turn out to be the best photos. How could I resist a beautiful summer day at the beach with 7 adorable kids?! My friends make some of the cutest kids around and at least one of our many beach days has a few pictures to be remembered by.

As you can see we all had fun and it was a little crazy….

Nora’s arrival

Nora took her time coming into the world but man was it worth the wait! Megan labored and was sent home from the hospital even with all the symptoms of birthing a baby. Nora just wouldn’t “drop” and turns out that she was not only a big baby ( 9 lbs 10 oz ) but she had other complications that made a c-section the best and safest option. Going from a natural birth to a c-section was a big switch for Megan and Chris but like everything they took it in stride and with a heavy dose of faith and confidence in their decision. When Nora was born she had issues with her blood sugar levels which meant an extended stay in the NICU hence the IV and monitors in her pictures. None the less I still got to spend some sweet time with her and Chris while Megan rested. These pictures are when she’s only a few hours old.

She is pure butter, absolutely gorgeous, I could hardly handle just taking pictures of her and luckily I got a few cuddles in when I was done :).

Mr. and Mrs. Witcher

I had the joy to photograph Lindsay and Matthews wedding yesterday. They are such an amazing couple, so in love and committed to a life together! It was great getting to know them over the last year and it felt like I was watching two of my friends tie the knot. I can’t wait to post more photos from their wedding day.

Zane and Caryn | Proposal in Laguna

My little brother is getting married to an amazing girl! I’m so happy for him and Caryn and can’t for their official wedding day. Caryn already feels like part of the family and I could not ask for a better match for my brother. She is smart, funny, kind, generous and continually thoughtful. I feel like they do a great job of balancing each others personalities and passions which is such an amazing “base” for a long lasting love.

When my brother asked me to take pictures of him proposing I was so excited! He had it all planned out and even had his friend Matt come and guide me to the spot plus help set up. I hid in the bushes and got some farther away shots during the actual proposal which luckily worked and Caryn was totally surprised!

Here are some of my favorites from that special day!
