I love “growing” with my clients. As a family photographer, I have the privilege of being a part of family milestones and life changes. I first met the L-Y family 2 years ago when I did their holiday portraits. I also photographed little Z’s dol last year and I was so honored to be invited to their new home for updated extended family portraits. The morning light was absolutely beautiful and that tree was a perfect backdrop. Oh how I dream of having a tree like that to photograph against rather than the view of other homes that I currently have in my yard!
Baby J took a long nap but woke up just in time to party! He made sure he was well rested and energized for the doljabi, where he picked up the gold coins. Smart kid!
Baby N made her big arrival on Valentine’s Day and her parents have been bursting with love ever since. She handled her very first modeling gig like a pro, even with all the outfit changes! 9 days old and just perfect.
One day early but here’s a Happy Valentine’s Day portrait from my Vans wearing ballerina and my heart covered fashionista. Where’s A? She decided not to join us and said, “it’s just pictures, mom.” Seriously. Stab. Me. In. The. Heart.
This is the 5th year Danny has taken the girls to the school Father/Daughter Dance. It seems to rain almost every year on the day of so we took a a few portraits inside before they headed out for the party. This was A’s last elementary school dance with her dad. I almost cried when I saw she was wearing the necklace Danny gave her for her first Father/Daughter dance in 2011. Sigh…she is growing up FAST! And when K found the dress she wanted at Nordstrom, she proclaimed, “I love this dress but it needs a necklace or a belt.” She is indeed my mini me. She shopped my closet and chose one of my necklaces to wear with her dress. Is this really happening already??? But deep inside I’m loving it.
I completely forgot to post images from last year’s dance so I’ve included it on this post as well. As you can see, as the girls get older they are moving away from pink and frilly dresses! Danny still has 5 more years to look forward to as little E will start going next year. I’m sure she will be decked out in head to toe sparkles!
