Kellie & Brett {Maternity Shoot}

I always have the greatest time with this couple and they so happen to be family!! My sister is crazy sometimes, so she had the best idea of having us hike to an unknown location for her maternity shoot (both of us being pregnant). I'm glad our hike through the Claremont hills led us to this beautiful location and we rocked this shoot!!!

Reese & Regan {Twin Newborn Shoot}

I was beyond nervous for my very first twin newborn shoot. Any photographer knows how difficult this can be. Getting one baby calm and posed is hard enough... trying to do 2 at once seems impossible!!

Reese and Regan were adorable little baby girls. One was definitely more patient with me than the other, but the shoot went far better than I could have ever imagined. I wished I could have gotten more of them together, but mom and I were very happy with the results.

Baby Peyton {Newborn Shoot}

We didn't think baby Peyton was going to make it too much longer after the maternity shoot, but she managed to stay in for a couple more weeks. I was so happy to do her newborn photos and although she didn't like me much, we got some cute shots. I especially love when mom and dad want to take some with baby.... so special!!

Val & Addison {Maternity Shoot}

Mom-to-be did not think she was going to make it to the shoot, but we made it happen. And, she was absolutely breathtaking during those occasional contractions. I'm happy to say that she didn't end up going into labor by the end!! I can't wait for their princess to come!

Mommy with Baby Gavin

When baby Gavin was born, I had the honor of photographing his newborn pics.  Shortly after, mom wanted pictures with her sweet bundle of joy.  We had such a peaceful shoot out at a park in Claremont and I just absolutely loved the bond these two shared already.

Baby London {Newborn Shoot}

Back in August, I had the opportunity to shoot another newborn... Baby London. Wow, was she adorable!! So sleepy and such a breeze to pose.

During the shoot, London's dad was definitely welcomed into parenthood when he got a not-so-good surprise all over his white t-shirt just as we were finishing up the shoot!! It was a funny moment.

Sexy "Ms T"

My favorite photo sessions by far is boudoir.  I LOVE seeing women go from uptight and quiet to confident and giggly all in just a couple hours.  It is hard for some women to bare it all for photos, but at the end of the day, it lifts their self esteem and they feel amazing!! I wish I could show you all of the photos and details of this shoot, but in order to respect my clients and their identity, I can only give you this...

The Balderrama Family

I enjoy nothing more then photographing a beautiful and loving family.  Not only is The Balderrama Family all of these things and more, they also are very creative.  Ok, so these people are related to me, but seriously, I LOVED taking their photos.  They had this rocking chair that carried so much meaning to them and wanted to take a family picture with it.  We drove around the foothills of Claremont and Rancho Cucamonga and found some really neat fields.  We had a blast doing this and after 6 years, my sister finally has the family photo she has always dreamed about.

Graduating College and Kindergarten

I had a unique photo shoot today... Mom was graduating from college, and son was graduating from Kindergarten.  It was a special time for both of them and we got some great shots together.  This was my first time shooting in Corona and I never knew about this cool little spot.  Definitely going to be on my list of favorite outdoor locations.

Baby Penelope {Newborn Shoot}

This past summer (yes, I am still catching up here) Penelope was born into such a loving family. She had the cutest big brothers and they had no problem jumping in the photos with her. She was so peaceful the entire time and made my 2nd newborn shoot go so smoothly.
