Soon-to-be Mr. & Mrs. Lauritzen Formals

February 5, 2016 at 3:06 pm

It’s been such a wonderful journey so far with this adorable couple! They met playing a softball game and apparently have been with each other every free moment they’ve had since! He proposed while joining them on a family trip to Disneyland!  As a big Disney fan, I just think that’s  incredibly fun! For their Formals, we found a great little spot high above the inversion and clouds! As I was driving to the location it was raining pretty hard, but had faith we’d be able to work with it. As I climbed higher and higher, the rain lightened up till it was just sprinkling. As soon as we started shooting the rain stopped! Just enough to get some great shots in! Plus, we had some furry visitors!

Creative Winter Session

January 24, 2016 at 10:10 pm

One resolution I made for my business is to do more creative projects in 2016! This is the first of many projects I have planned for this year! I was lucky enough to work with the talented Nicola Posener, who stars in the epic fantasy film series Mythica! This creative shoot turned out so much better than I had imagined! It was amazing to work with Nicola and bring this project to life!

Model: Nicola Posener

All Aboard the Polar Express!

December 16, 2015 at 2:11 pm

Prepare yourself for ultimate cuteness! Okay I may be a bit biased, but just look at those chubby cheeks and big eyes and tell me that he isn’t just ADORABLE, especially in that conductor’s uniform!!!! Makes me want to go scoop him up right now and munch on his cheeks and kiss him until he gives me that big belly laugh and tells me “No mama, ‘top!” But I won’t cause he’s sleeping right now! But oh my golly! My boy ADORES trains! Knowing this, I’ve always wanted to do a TRAIN shoot with him, but I won’t shoot on the tracks. There’s just too much at risk! As my creative juices started pumping just for this shoot, I remembered about a neighborhood train in our area! They’ve asked me not to mention who they are because they already have too many holiday passengers. But they were super nice about letting me borrow one of their trains to use for our Polar Express Shoot! He absolutely loved being the conductor of his own little train!

From our family to yours, I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas this year full of Love and Believing!

Engagements VanderKooi-Lauritzen

December 16, 2015 at 1:47 pm

This cute couple met at a softball game and quickly hit it off, apparently they have been inseparable ever since. A recent family trip to Disneyland, where he tagged along, provided him with the perfect opportunity to stake his claim on this precious jewel to be his forever! This couple is so cute and we had a lot of fun at this shoot, so I’m excited to shoot with them again! You’ll see more of this lovely couple as we take the journey with them to wedded bliss!

Wedding Formals for the Soon-to-be Mr. & Mrs. Giullian

December 9, 2015 at 1:30 pm

This is my daughter’s 4th grade teacher from last year! When she contacted me under super secret means to let me know she was getting engaged and wanted me to take her Bridals, I was ecstatic! My daughter and her female classmates would tease their beloved teacher about her dates throughout the school year, but they all had high hopes for her! So she wanted to wait to surprise them closer to the special day! My daughter is in a school that has gender-differentiated classes, (This system is amazing and wonderful, it’s been scientifically proven that boys and girls learn differently and I love that our school meets that need to separate them to teach them accordingly.) Which means she’s in a class full of girls! No boys!  Can you imagine all the giggles & high-pitched screams when she announced she was getting married? Back to this amazing couple cause their special day is fast approaching! Congratulations to this gorgeous couple!

Mr P’s 1 year Session

November 4, 2015 at 1:25 pm

You might recognize this little lad from his newborn session, but then again he’s changed a bit! Still cute as ever though! Mr P loves books and his mama is a teacher so naturally, we did part of his session in the library! I had never done a session in a library but I loved how they all came out! This is a busy guy, but he loved books! For the other half of the session, we went out to capture the beauty of fall, and you’ll see that he couldn’t wait to REALLY get to know all the textures fall brings! There were so many adorable photos from this fun session!

Fall Petite Session

November 4, 2015 at 1:17 pm

This was the first year I had ever done Fall Petites! And I love every minute of it, from designing the set to seeing the smiling faces on these adorable kids! I’m grateful to everyone who came out to enjoy the weather and sit on this lovely little dream! It was such a beautiful day, as I sit here freezing in my office and listening to the wind blow outside I am warmed inside by these cute smiles! Be sure to follow me on Instagram and Facebook to stay up-to-date when any deals and petite sessions will be happening!

12 year Anniversary

September 26, 2015 at 2:12 pm

This shoot was a couple years past due. They really wanted to do this fun shoot for their 10 year anniversary, but she was pregnant! So fast forward 2 years later, this gorgeous girl can still fit into her wedding dress!! How many people can say they can do that!? I certainly can’t! Especially after 3 babies, like she has had! I’m proud to call this beautiful mama and her handsome hubby my family! Check out their gorgeous session and even if you aren’t able to fit into your wedding dress….think about documenting your next anniversary to make it an extra special one! Because it is!

Whimsey Lane 2015 Swim Line

September 16, 2015 at 10:43 pm

Product shoots for swimwear are a little different than portrait shoots because I don’t always get to show off the images until the next year! Whimsey Lane has done it again! Designing super cute, modest swimwear that let you play and move, without having to worry that everything is covered! This shoot was super fun because we were on a boat!! It was probably my second boat ride in my life!! haha! It was a blast! The water was choppy and there was a chill in the air but these fabulous models were such champs! Unfortunately, these swimsuits never made it to production but I still wanted to share these super fun images!
