A Newlywed Christmas

Taking Christmas photos for a family that involves a baby or a pup is so much fun. That moment you finally catch the baby or pup looking directly at the camera is to die for. I enjoyed every bit of taking photos for the gorgeous couple: Brooke & Trevor. They are recently married and decided to send out their first card as a family for Christmas. It was my first time trying out the hanging ornaments in the background, and I’m quite impressed at out it turned out. This certainly won’t be the last!

Christmas at UL Alumni Center

I got my fair share of Christmas shoots this year, and it’s probably one of my favorite shoots to do since Christmas is my favorite holiday. I took these at the UL Alumni Center. I find the variety of landscape is perfect for family photos.

This is Joanne & Tu with their sweet baby girl, Mila, who was 2 months old. I loved the shot of her being kissed under the mistletoe by her parents. It’s the sweetest thing. This was their first Christmas photo as a family, and I was so happy to help. Merry Christmas, you guys!

Disney’s Up Themed Birthday

I photographed my baby cousin, Theodore, for his very first birthday! The party theme was inspired by Disney’s Up (planned by JEM Events), and it was the cutest birthday party ever! The colorful decor looked as though it came straight from the movie. The venue echoed with “awws” all day. To top it off, the air smelled of cotton candy while Disney songs played softly in the background. I was definitely taken back to my childhood days.

Theo, of course, made an adorable Mr. Carl whether he was smiling or crying. The picture-perfect family wore matching white converse shoes while Theo was styled from head to toe in a button down with plaid bow tie, suspenders, and reading glasses (which he enjoyed chewing on more than wearing it). It will definitely be one to remember and a grand, 1st birthday for Theo.

FAMILY | Corinne + Matt

This photo shoot is special to me. Aside from the fact that there is so much cuteness in one picture, Corinne is actually my first ever photography client! I have her to thank for getting me started on a dream I’ve always wanted. You can never go wrong with a Christmas photo shoot packed with plaid, white faux fur, cozy red blankets, mistletoe, and furry children with bow ties. I was squealing out of excitement after every shot. Her little family is too adorable!

FAMILY | Emily + Hunter

This is a sweet photo shoot I did for my friend, Emily and her son, Hunter. They are the cutest pair of mother and son you will ever meet. Hunter is full of life and has so much love for his mom as you can see in this photos. It was a pleasure to capture their relationship. I could feel the love they had for each other. Tell your mother you love them right now!
