  • Little Kylie recently turned 1 year old. Kirsten was able to start with some photos of the party at our local Gymboree. Kylie was decked out in the cutest little pink tutu.

  • Back at the house, ready for everyone's arrival from Gymboree, was a spread of desserts and bright primary colors. I love sampling as I take photos. :-)

  • Last week I met up with Darleen and David and Dominic who we've photographed since Darleen and David's wedding, their pregnancy, and Dominic at several time-frames throughout the last two years.

    We arrived at my favorite park and this was one of my first shots of the afternoon. :-) I just LOVE it. Dominic just wanted to play and we had other plans. We wanted to get a family photograph, since David's mom, Mildred (aka grandma), and David's brother and his wife, Bruce and Vandana, and their two girls, Anjali and Abigail, were all in attendance as well.

  • I just love where Darleen finds Dom's clothes. And Vandana had the girls in perfect matching dresses.

  • This is the whole clan.

  • Anjali saw how daddy hugged her in this photo and she mimicked it with her sister.

  • We finally started to play and the smiles all returned.

  • This was just a perfect moment when I had Abi's full attention.

  • One photo of Grandma and the grandkids. It was no feat to get everyone looking in the same direction all at once!

  • David had just sneezed and provided great entertainment for Anjali.

  • After I asked if this pose was mimicking Dr. Evil (from Austin Powers), and the answer was yes, this became my favorite photo of the entire afternoon. :-)

  • One of my favorite moments to capture is that of a mother and her baby. I'm loving this silhouette from Teresa this week as part of the Memory Journalists Silhouette LOVE theme photo competition for February.

    "I loved seeing the love between my niece and her newborn son Giovanni," says Teresa.

    If you missed seeing Kelly's silhouette photo last week, be sure to check it out.

  • One of my favorite places is Carmelita's, and as it turned out, it is one of Vanessa and Sean's favorite places too. It's a fabulous Mexican food restaurant near Old Fair Oaks and it's where we started the night for their engagement photos.

    Yes, that's a tequila shot!
