Happy 1st Birthday Charlie!

I LOVE this family! I grew up in Orange, and so just being in the circle makes me smile. I was wondering around with one of my sisters, and met Claudia and her daughter Ella. We immediately hit it off with them (if you knew Ella Kaye, you would know why... she is magnetic and so special, and makes you laugh and smile). I also LOVE love stories, which Claudia and Duane have:) They met, instantly fell in love, got married, and had a beautiful baby girl! I was there to see it all, and capture it all with my lens. You can see in all of these images the way they all adore one another. Duane was SO ready to be a dad, fell in love with Claudia and Ella, and now has another daughter. Ella is the BEST big sister ever. When Charlie sees Ella enter the room, her face lights up like you have never seen and squeals and walks over to her. You can see this in the image where she is walking next to her sister, just looking up to Ella with adoration. Charlie also is very social. Each person she sees, she gives them a big smile and then waves at them. I love your family so much and am so thankful that you include me to capture all of your special moments. Here are some of my favorite images from our shoot. Enjoy!

Calvin is ONE!

I had the opportunity to do a photoshoot with Calvin and document a huge milestone in his life... he is now ONE! What was most exciting about the shoot was that the night before the shoot, he decided to take his first steps. He then surprised us and took a few more the day of his shoot! It was much fun! I was so excited to be right there and capture that time! Enjoy a few pics from our shoot...

Jacob has arrived = 3 boys for the Pelayo Family!

I used to shoot for the cutest boutique in Orange called Two Little Monkeys. Unfortunately they went out of business. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to shoot for them though, as I met many wonderful families like the Pelayo family. I met the Pelayo family when Jacob was in Stephanie's belly. I was SOOOOO excited when I got the call that Jacob was here! Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share this time with your family:) Your boys are SO much fun!

Mike and Liz: Engaged!

Mike and Liz are getting married this summer! I am so excited for their wedding because together, they are F.U.N!!! All they do is laugh with each other, which makes me love my job even more:) Liz has some sweet dance moves, which at times she breaks out and Mike just laughs. Mike says some one-liners that come out of no where... and then Liz just laughs. I can imagine how much fun you are going to have on your wedding day, and your entire lives together:) I enjoyed our time together! I can't wait to see you in a few months...

Meghan and Eric: Expecting!

Meghan and Eric are having a baby girl very soon! I loved this photoshoot, first of all, because they are great friends of ours, but also, because they are SOOOOOO incredibly excited for baby Mia to be here! Both Meghan and Eric have a special glow about them. You can see it in all the images. There is no doubt that Mia Kenley is going to be spoiled to death with love:) Congrats to you guys! I can't wait to do your newborn session soon...
