Maternity Session at the Suisun City Marina

I am getting back into the swing of photography and I am thrilled that this couple was my first one this summer. :)

The first time I photographed them, they were high school graduates. A few years later they were back in front of my camera as newlyweds. This weekend, I had the honor of photographing their maternity session.

There is such beauty in the glow of an expectant mother!


The proud parents-to-be...






 

I am excited for this next chapter in their lives and cannot wait to get their little on in front of my camera. :)

A Beautiful Day with a Fun Family | Solano County Family Photography

It’s hard to believe how fast time has flown by. The last time I photographed this family was in November of 2009! Things sure have changed since then.

They have added a new family member since the last time so we were sure to take photos with him at home.

I’ve never met a dog that posed so well! :)

With a quick change of clothes we then headed to a nearby park for some more photos.

THIS is my favorite one from the day!

During family sessions, I like to encourage the parents to also have photos of just the two of them. I adore this one of mom and dad!!

Cuteness in the Park

Last weekend, I headed to the Suisun City Waterfront with this little cutie for her 3 year old birthday photos. Her birthday was in the summer, but the weather was way too hot to do her session then.

I adore my little niece SO much!

Her eyes. They get me every time. :)

Can’t you just picture her on a children’s clothing ad?

One of the things I love about her is her many expressions. Though I love her smiling photos the best, this is one of my favorites. There is just something in her soft expression.

Here is the smile that can convince me to do just about anything for her!

10 Things I Have Learned from Cody | Down Syndrome Awareness Month

I originally wrote this post in July 2010 when Cody was just 4 years old. I read it the other day and thought of how fitting it still is and was worth sharing again.

  1. Keep trying – if you keep trying, you will eventually get the outcome you want.
  2. Don’t give in to expectations – if Cody only lived up to the expectations people have of him they would never see his true potential. I love that he can prove people wrong!
  3. Keep smiling – even when he was laying in a hospital bed connected to a ventilator, he never stopped smiling. Even when he is sleeping I catch him laughing and smiling while dreaming. I want his dreams. :)
  4. Never hold a grudge – the boy can’t stay angry for the life of him. He can be super mad at me one minute, but as soon as I smile at him, he forgets all about his anger.
  5. Be able to laugh at yourself – when he falls, he is the first to laugh. If he bumps his head, he is the first to laugh. I think being able to laugh at myself and things I do reminds me to not be serious about a lot of different things.
  6. Make friends everywhere you go – Cody is like a friend magnet. Adults and kids love to talk to Cody and he is always open to chatting with them as well. Not that I’m not talkative, but it is a reminder that you can never have enough friends.
  7. Don’t forget to be silly – Every day items turn into a hat or a toy. He can crack himself up for half an hour with a basket or a silly dance. I try to be silly with him and his brother as much as I can.
  8. Show your love often – Cody has an endless supply of hugs, kisses and “i lub yous” to give away. Hug someone and it can make their day. :)
  9. Be there for someone – If ever anyone in the house is upset or in trouble (aka the puppy or his brother), Cody is the first one by their side to comfort them or stand up for them. (He is also likes to help scold them, but that is after he has comforted them).
  10. Enjoy life – Cody can turn anything he does into something fun and enjoyable. I think us adults need to do that more often!!!
