Playa del Carmen destination wedding: kim and franky part 2

it's been 6 weeks since i had my toes in the sands of playa del carmen, and i'm already dreaming of my next trip (a cruise to the mexican riviera in june!) so until then, i thought it was time to share part 2 of franky and kim's destination wedding. 

they were awesome enough to also want to do a "trash the dress" session the day after the wedding. it's a newer trend that can scare some people (the dress! the memories! the dry cleaning bill!), while others take it as an artistic way to have a little more fun in the outfits, with the stress of the wedding behind you. 

being in the land of ancient ruins and beautiful beaches, we took a little hike and captured the essence of the area. 

and a huge congrats out to the newlyweds, they will also be welcoming a little bundle of love this fall!

walnut creek, ca newborn photography: 5 days new

maddie was 5 days new when i was lucky enough to be in town to photograph her. on a dark and stormy day (no really, like record breaking rainfall for the area), i drove up to her mama and daddy's home in walnut creek to meet the gorgeous new little angel. 
it was this day also, that she chose to be the most awake and alert that she had been in her short little life! while this makes it difficult to capture the posed images when babies are awake, i adore the family photos of them interacting together. 
welcome to the world maddie! i can't wait to watch you grow!
