L For Lexie


Meet my sweet beautiful, only niece, Lexie!  You probably noticed above that she has a smile to light up the room, and spunk to match.  I love watching her develop into such a great young lady.  From junior life guards to dancing, and spending lots of time with her friends, Lexie is always making the most out of every minute!  Lexie had just gotten her hair done on Saturday.  So on Sunday we thought it would be fun to bike down to the beach real quick and do a lil mini session of her and the mane before sunset.

Another moment in time I know I will be reminiscing of, way to soon…  She’s growing up way to fast, and at 12 years old has already surpassed me in height!  But I’ll let the fears of her  growing up at quantum speeds slide for today and just enjoy the sweet, spastic, funny, brilliant 12 year old that she is right now!

A Faux-lopement- Southern California Wedding

Heidi and Colin had aspired toward an elopement, but in the end having all there amazing family there won out.  But who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too, especially on your wedding day?! Heidi decided to go with a first look the day before her wedding so we could leisurely go on a photo safari at a location reminiscent of her ideal European destination.  I loved it!  Heidi is my Best Friends little sister, so I was more than enthused about being her paparazzi on her special day.  But with her outside the box Faux-lopement session it made for a very relaxed day of, in which we focused on family portraits knowing the rest was in the bag!  I even got to through in some extra coverage and tailgate her sis/ my best bud when she slipped out to decorate their room at evenings end.

Cheers to these two sweet kids, they really melt my heart!

Its a brand New Year, we’ve set our resolutions, and you’re going to have your best year yet, so why not stop and enjoy who you are in that moment.  I am now offering Glamour Portraits. I figure if Hammer pants can make a come back…. I’ve purchased 2 pair, ok, 3 pairs, I’m laughing with you. But think about this, what would be more fun than a day out with your daughter, best friend, sisters or mom, getting your hair did and makeup done up?   Then striking a pose like you do in that dream cover shoot you fantasize about every time you flip open your favorite glossy magazine! You know said actress doesn’t have anything on you, if you were to have access to the talented stylists and makeup artists they do, so come in and enjoy a day of getting done up to the nines and rock the look out on the town afterwords!
