Most parents do photo shoots when their little ones turn one, maybe even two but then they seem to stop. I love that I got to do an 7 year shoot! Such a great age to photograph and Kayleigh was so fun to work with! This was back in the spring when the wild flowers were everywhere!

I can’t believe 2015 is coming to an end! This year has been a challenging year being a single foster mom and running my business. I had 6 kids come into my home throughout the year! Some were with me for months, some for days but there is always an adjustment period with each child. I have decided for 2016 to not take any new children into my home so the kids who are currently with me have more stability and I can focus on getting my business back to where I want it to be. My goals for this coming year are to grow my passion for photography and give my clients photos they can look back at and remember how they felt during the time they were taken. I would also love to shoot more weddings again! I cut way back on weddings because of fostering but I miss it and I’m ready to jump back in! If you know anyone who is getting married, please send them my way! I love traveling so weddings don’t have to be in Southern California. I’ve also really loved to shoot adoptions this past year and would love to expand that to offer shooting international adoptions!

“I wasn’t sure if I should share this photo on my business page because it is such a personal image but my friend (baby’s mom) said “Totally. ‘Cause it just shows how important she was and how she touched lives even though she was so tiny.”
Sweet Rosie stayed with us for 8 months. She lived in the hospital her entire life. She was a fighter and she made an impact on this world that some can’t make in a full lifetime. The few times I met Rosie one thing I noticed was how much the nurses cared. Not just in a “this is my job” type of way… it went beyond that. They loved this sweet girl and her family. After she passed away they came to give their condolences and say goodbye. With tears in their eyes they touched her beautiful curls one more time talking to her in soft voices. They smiled as they shared stories about a beautiful little girl with the sweetest smile. Not only did they make a difference for Rosie but I know they brought comfort and peace to Rosie’s mom and dad. Thank you to all the amazing nurses!”

I can’t believe the Santa shoot is only a week away! This is the 5th year I’ve done this shoot and it has grown from a 4 hour shoot to two full days with over 100 families! It is more than photos with Santa, it is an experience! Come have some hot chocolate, decorate cookies and make crafts with Mrs. Claus and enjoy your time with Santa! I still have a few afternoon times left! Email me at Richelle@richelledante.com asap to book your time!
