Baby Irelyn

Little Irelyn is lucky to grow up with these three amazing people in her life. Carrie is a first time mama, but it’s easy to see that motherhood is a role she was meant to play.  The connection between mother and daughter was serene and beautiful to photograph. Dad Ryan melted my heart the way that he looked at baby Irelyn, as if he was treasuring every moment of her fleeting tinyness. Time flies and he knows this. And big brother Bray was just too cute.  He insisted on a badass nerf gun shot–the perfect symbol of the protective role he’s going to play in the future. Welcome to the world little Irelyn.  You are in good hands!

Locquiao Family

How cute is this tiny fire engine?  I wish I could take credit for this prop but it was all Michelle and Orly’s doing.  Such a great idea because little Nixon and baby Ezra looked adorable giving each other hugs while fighting fires.  Plus the vintage design was perfect for the vintage atmosphere of the farm.

If you haven’t been to Ardenwood farms it’s like talking a walk back in time to simpler times.  Right in the middle of a developed suburb is a fully operational farm with agricultural artifacts of yesterday.  So much to explore! We had fun roaming the scenic gardens, scoping out tractors, doing pretend laundry outdoors, and hanging out on wagons.  It was simple good times with a simply fun family.

I adored working with these kiddos. It was fun watching handsome Nixon unleash his crazy happy toddler energy.  And little Ezra was just adorable in her bow and fuzzy hair. Baby girl made us work alright, but when she finally flashed a smile with her two little bottom teeth, it was like the sun finally came out on that cloudy day.

Thank you Locquiao family for letting me capture these lovely moments.  You guys are a beautiful family and I wish you all the best!

Atanque Family

Can’t believe I’ve known this guy for over 20 years!  He’s one of my elementary school buds and actually one of my very first photo shoot victims from the early 2000s.  Somewhere in my attic are black and white prints of this guy from when I was a total noob at photography.  I think the photo shoot went something like this: “Hey Hannibal can you climb into this tree and do a Calvin Klein pose.” Seriously I had no idea what I was doing back then–in photography and life (but I digress.)

Well fast forward to 2016 and things are coming full circle as I get a chance to photograph Hannibal once again.  This time he brought his beautiful wife Lily and their super sweet preschooler Clara. We had a blast roaming Ardenwood farms and making friend with the goats and sheep.  No CK posing this time. Just genuine smiles, hugs, and laughter as the Atanque family showed me how connected they are. I adored photographing their little family and seeing all the love.

Thanks Atanque Family for the fun Sunday at the farm.  Check out the photos below!

Baby Dresden

Just look at this deliciousness that is baby Dresden. He is 2 months old and is just as cuddly as he looks.  My goodness gracious that is a face you just want to kiss all day.
