K’s First Communion

It amazes me how time quickly passes, but what’s wonderful is the fact that we get to experience beautiful milestones during the time we have no matter how quickly it passes.  In a beautiful dress and adorning a beautiful smile, she shines bright for her parents and family to be so proud of her.   I know her day was just as wonderful as she looked on her First Communion day.  May she always be blessed!

B’s First Communion

I’ve been around for a few years to watch this little girl grow and I am probably as happy and proud of her as her family is.
She looked so beautiful in her First Communion dress and I wish her and her family nothing but blessings!

A’s Bat Mitzvah Photo Session

What a beautiful day for photos of this lovely young lady as she prepares for her Bat Mitzvah!
The dress, the day and the girl were stunning.
I loved being a part of her special day.

 

Sophia’s 6th Birthday!

Another year gone by and another year older!  That went by super quick, feels like just yesterday I was taking Ninja Turtle themed photos of her.
Well, this year she wanted to dive right into SUPER HERO action.  She wanted a mask, a cape and some kicks to go with it.  We hit the streets caped crusader style to take these photos and she absolutely had a BLASTif you can’t tell by her facial expressions. With a WHAM! POW! KABOOM! we finished these pictures up in FLASH!  It was hard to pick which images to post because I truly loved them all due to her energy.
She is honestly ALL the things I LOVE wrapped into a tiny bundle.  I can’t wait to see what SUPER amazing stuff she will do in life.  

Happy SUPER 6th Birthday, Sophia!  I hope you had a blast.

Comfort of Training Wheels

 

Soon it will be time to let go of the training wheels, but right now she wants that support. Although, I want her to learn to go without the support on her bike, I know that this is extra time I have with her needing that comfort of knowing she is not going to fall.  When we move on to the next stage, there will be cuts, bumps and bruises along the way, but I know it will add character and strength to my growing little girl.

As she grows, she will know that I will be her training wheels until she is ready to spread her wings.  I have plenty of time before then and I am hoping to soak every last bit of her experiences in.  JR-2961 JR-2987 JR-2988 JR-2992 JR-2993 JR-2995 JR-2996

Sophia Laurel

Quite frankly, I love taking photos of children, because I envy the fact that they live carefree and have such an innocence to them.
Little Sophia Laurel(not so little anymore) came back for another photo session and I was so in awe of how much she’s grown since I have seen her last.  Of course, she has great style because her momma dresses her and makes her look quite chic.  I was surprised though at how much she liked to run around, explore and play with DIRT!  Sophia! It’s all good, because today was a day for her to be one with nature and she was!  Looking forward to many more sessions with her again.

THE CUTE LITTLE FACES OF 2014

Each little face in front of my camera this year has brought me a tremendous amount of joy and I am so excited to see those faces and new faces again this year, 2015.
To all the parents, thank you for letting me capture your children’s expressions and precious moments.
Here are just some of the cute little faces I was able to photograph this year, in no particular order.

Sophia Laurel Photo Session

One of my favorite little girlies was back again.  I am so happy to see her grow.  We went right into it and she was, as always, a little model.  Snapped away taking many candids of this little chica in action. Also, got some images of mom and daughter together.  She really is a little model.  Can’t wait to see her again!
