{Skater Dude} Ventura County Child Photographer

I recently had the good fortune to meet this lovely family.  They purchased a session that I donated to St. Baldrick’s (which is a fantastic organization…if you haven’t heard of it before please take a peek!) and I’m so glad they did.  It was really quite easy to photograph these guys because they are not only a very photogenic bunch, but they are also fun!  We had a great time playing at our session at Mandalay Beach Resort in Oxnard and I’m pretty sure little Mr. Deagan took a looonnnggg nap afterward…we wore him out!

Family portraits in Ventura County, California.

I like to have my clients bring items/toys/props that are reflective of what their kiddos are into at the time.  I think these little trinkets are a great way to bring out their personalities and will help us as parents to better remember what they were like at a given age.  As all of you parents out there know, once you have children time passes at warp speed.  I don’t know if it is the lack of sleep, constant running around, the never ending struggle to keep your house from looking like you belong on the next episode of Hoarders, or a combination of all of the above.  All I know is that once you have children time speeds up–exponentially–and it is so so important to hold on to the memories that we have of our little ones, because really these memories are all we have at the end of the day.

Sorry…off on a tangent there!…right now Deagan is into his skate boards, both big and small.  Have you ever seen such a cute little skate board?  I love it!

He was pretty good on his big board, too.  With a little help from dad of course…

Thanks so much to this family, not only for the super fun session, but also for supporting St. Baldrick’s.  I appreciate it and I know they do to!!

{Meet Matthew} Ventura County Newborn Photography

If you follow my blog at all you may have noticed my love of black & white for newborn photos, but something about the softness of the color in these shots really appeals to me.  Sweet little Matthew is getting ready to meet his Daddy for the first time in just a few short weeks and I can’t wait to capture that moment!  You see, Matthew’s father is currently deployed and has been bravely defending our country for the past several months.  I think his Mama is pretty brave too.  I would like to imagine that I could hold our fort down if my husband were away for such an extended period of time, but in all reality I don’t know what I would do.  K, you rock! 

Look at this gorgeous little guy.  I just will never tire of baby fingers and toes…



The last time I had the opportunity to document a “first meeting” between a father and child I was amazed at how powerful the emotions of that moment were.  You can see some of those images here.  I’m proud to be involved with Operation: Love ReUnited and am so happy to be able to give a little something back to those who do so much for all of us.  K, I can’t wait for your big moment.  You must be beside yourself!

(Oh, and a side note.  I may be finding out what I would do if my husband were away for a length of time very shortly; I’ve just recently found out that he will be going to training on the East Coast for an entire month…I’m definitely going to need some pointer’s from Matthew’s Mommy!!)

{Lovely Mama & Her Sweet Boy} Camarillo Family Photographer

I had such a fun time hanging out with these two at the beach the other day.  I just love the fact that in Southern California we can get these images…in November!  Just think, a good part of the country is shoveling snow (believe me, I know…I was once in that boat!) while we have our toes in the nice warm sand.  Now that is something that I’m thankful for!


This little guy has the most unbelievable green eyes…


And such spunk!


You can absolutely feel how much he loves his mama…


Goofing around…


I love this one…


After a quick outfit change…I think these would be perfect for holiday cards!


Thanks so much to the “R” family.  It was a pleasure to meet you and I hope you enjoy your sneak peek!

{Welcome Home!} Camarillo Family Photographer

Get ready for a long post!  I just couldn’t tell the story of this reunion in one or two images.  Meet Jack and Grace…


Jack is not quite two, and Grace was about 4 weeks when these images were taken.  Her Dad was deployed when she was born and the day he came home from the Middle East was the day that they first met.  This was my first reunion session with Op Love (its called a fly-in session for obvious reasons…you’ll see!) and to be able to capture this moment for such a beautiful family was truly a joy.

The feeling in the air was electric; full of emotion, expectancy, and love.  There were thoughtful patriotic detail put into place by a group of women who were anxiously waiting for their husbands to come home.



Jack and his beautiful mama…


Waiting for the big moment…


Almost time…




I love the look on her face in the image on the right.  So full of happiness as her family is about to be complete…






The first time he saw his daughter…


Can you even believe Grace’s smile in these?




…and love…


A huge congratulations to the Barry family!  I am so glad that I was able to document such an amazing time in your lives, and I hope that you love your images….I loved taking them!!

P.S….if you or someone you know is in the military and would like to have photographs taken at no cost, please refer to the Op Love site for details.  There are quite a few local photographers who offer this service.  If you would like me to document your family’s reunion please contact me as soon as possible.  I am only able to offer a limited number of these sessions each year and my calendar books months in advance.
