Lily at the Pumpkin Patch

A lovely day down at the farm with my little Snow White.

Family Maternity Session at Garin Park

It was supposed to be a peaceful maternity photoshoot in a serene park setting.

Nope.

I just happened to schedule the shoot during the same time as a youth running relay event.  300 unexpected guest at this photoshoot.   Kids running laps.  Dogs sniffing around.  Parents with coolers.  Lawnchairs everywhere.  Plus all the locations I wanted to shoot at were roped off for the relay race.  There was hardly a spot without an unwanted person in my way.

Things didn’t go as planned.  Luckily for me I was working with a very cool bunch of people.  Ivette, Alan and their three beautiful children had no problem with the crowd.   I guess when you have a big happy family, it feels quite natural to be surround by just a few hundred more.  So we made it work.

Thank you Ivette and family for hanging out with me and allowing me to capture your last moments as a family of 5. I wish you the best as a family of 6!

Ice Cream Date With My Mini Me

Sometimes I give the camera to my husband. And sometimes he manages to get a few photos in focus.  =)

Found the cutest polka dot Minnie Mouse toddler outfit for 2 dollars at a thrift store which matched perfectly with my favorite red polka dot dress.  And then I knew this photoshoot had to happen.

Hendricks Family Welcomes Baby Klay

Guys it’s been such a loooooong while since I’ve done a photoshoot.  Chasing around my beautiful crazy toddler leaves little desire for anything but wine and naps.  But theres no better way to snap out of this funk than to photograph a crazy beautiful family.

Meet the Hendricks family: Mike, Krystle, Khloe, Keith and 2 week old baby Klay.  Hanging out with this family of 3 kids gave me fond memories of childhood as one of 3 sibling.  There was never a dull day growing up for me and I can imagine that there’s never a dull day in the Hendricks household.  From chatting with 4 year old Khloe about her Barbie collection, watching Mike and Keith play fight, and watching the tender moments between Krystle and baby Klay, it was easy to see that this family is full of joy and life.

Congratulations on beautiful Klay and best of luck as a clan of 5! Thanks for welcoming me in your home and letting me capture these sweet moments. And thanks for the cheesy nacho (nacho not nachos because I only took one but wish I took more! )

My heart is full

Helloooooo everybody!

I know I haven’t posted in the longest time.  I’ve just been busy mommin’ my butt off.   My latest adventure as a new parent has been pure exhaustion so I haven’t really paid much attention to this blog.   But as crazy as life is these days, I wouldn’t trade it for anything.  I FREAKING LOVE BEING A MOM.   I don’t have the words to eloquently express the love I feel.  So I’ll leave you with a few snaps from this last year.

Cheers everybody!  I will try to post more soon!

-Young
