Brynley:: 3 Months

I had so many great shoots last year and I barely shared any of them. This was one of my favorite baby shoots of the year. I first met Kasey and Jillian a few months before Brynley was born. We talked about the options I offer for baby’s first year and about life in general. I really liked them and was looking forward to getting to know them throughout the coming year! Brynley’s 6 month shoot is coming up soon so I thought I should at least blog one of her earlier shoots. :) It’s so fun to see her grow up and I’ve really enjoyed getting to know her mom and dad!

For her 3 month shoot, we headed to the trails in Laguna for some and did the other half at home. I really love the feel of the at home portion. I’d love to do more in-home family shoots this year!

Maura’s Minis and Mini Shoot Packages!

I can’t believe this is the 3rd year I’ll be offering Maura’s Minis and I’m so excited Maura’s little sister, Molly, will be at the shoot! What a difference a year can make. This year, Maura’s mom and dad asked me to send all donations to Forever Footprints. It is an amazing organization that provides support for families who have suffered a pregnancy or infant loss. I know they have been a huge support for Maura’s family over the past few years. So, just as I did last year, 50% of all profits will go to Forever Footprints.

Mini Shoot Packages

Are you planning on doing four or more mini sessions this year? You might want to consider setting up a mini shoot package. You book four or more minis now and you are guaranteed a time, receive priority when picking the hour you want and it’s discounted! If you book 4 shoots, you will save 10%. Book 5 and save 15% with a $5 image credit for each shoot. Book six or more and receive 20% off along with the $10 image credit. The full amount for the mini shoot package needs to be paid in advance. There will only be 10 mini shoot packages available so if you are interested, email Chantel at and she will give you a quote for the sessions you want! Here are the minis I’ll be offering this year. Some dates are tentative.

February 8th: Maura’s Minis

May 3rd: Mommy and Me Minis
June 27th: July 4th (with lemonade stand)

2014 was different than any year since I’ve been in business. I’ve had to say my first goodbyes in foster care and I also said goodbye to my grandma. I didn’t shoot as many weddings but had a TON of newborns! I’m looking forward to 2015! I know there will be more adventures in foster care and I’m hoping more weddings to shoot! There will be more unicorn shoots and hopefully I’ll be adding in a few different mini shoots throughout the year. Enjoy the slideshow of all of my shoots from this past year along with a few personal photos scattered throughout!
