alhambra,ca children's photography: ayden is one!

i started this post last week before i left for a much needed girls weekend away! i thought i had scheduled it to post on friday, but to my dismay, it didn't!

i can hardly believe the little girl who slept in her daddy's fire helmet is now one year old!
i have had the honor to capture ayden throughout her first year, as a sleepy newborn, for her first christmas, her baptism, and now, as she turned one!

i love watching the little ones grow, and can't wait to continue to capture her milestones! start walking ayden!

if you would be interested in information about the 1st year collections, please email me at

alhambra,ca children's photography: baby brody

brody is going to be a little bruiser. i can just tell. he'll be a football player, and heart breaker. 
(i couldn't get enough of his chubby cheeks, they were absolutely edible!) 
we took his 4 month pictures the other morning, and he was just adorable. 

the jacket was his daddy's when he was a little guy. it's still a little too big, so i think we'll have him wear it again when he's older! 
 and the teddy's and doll, those were mama and daddy's toys when they were babies too! 

 those cheeks!! i. just. want. to. bite. them!!! 


i'll see you in a few months brody! i can't wait to see how much you've grown!

happy birthday to me: the prettiest my yard has ever looked!

it's been quite a while since i did a personal blog post, and i figured, my 30th birthday extravaganza would be a good time to start up again! 

bright and early, i dragged my mama, sister, and bestie to the flower mart in down town LA to pick up the flowers. i love getting to put my own arrangements together.

 i've always dreamed of having a giant oak tree that i can hang lights and mason jars from, with one long family style table under. since that was not a possibility in our yard, i improvised...

 i wanted to bring elements that i love together

 yup, that camera really does have my name on it! 

 my cake was made by my ever so talented friend Patty,

 i think i may blow this next one up into a canvas and hang it in the house: 

sorry for the over load of detail photos, i was absolutely in love with every detail of my party! my dad was on people duty, so as soon as he sends me over his photos, i'll include some more! 

special thanks to my mom, sister, brother in law, besties Nicole and Patty, and of course hubs, for helping my dream party come true!
