Tea for Two •Ventura County Child Photographer•

I had a lovely time having morning tea with these two baby besties.  An annual photo shoot capturing their growing friendship is a tradition that their Mamas started last year when they were each just a few months old.  I *love* the idea and I’m sure the girls will love having the photos to look back on as they grow up together.

Oh…and isn’t this doll house just beyond cute?

Story Time •Ventura Family Photographer•

     This sweet family spends a lot of time reading together, so as part of their session we headed to the park with a blanket and a few favorite books and had a little story time.  I think it is so much fun to incorporate children’s current interests into a photo session.  It really allows the images to capture who they are, and not just what they look like.  I’ve recently spent some time soul searching and reflecting on who I am as a photographer.  In doing so I’ve realized that I love images that  showcase personalities while telling a story…and I think that is exactly why these images speak to me.

Before & After •Ventura County Newborn Photographer•

Here is a quick peek of a gorgeous family who recently booked a maternity and newborn combination package.  We snuck in the maternity portraits in the nick of time…only a week before their little guy made his early arrival.  Since the sessions were so close together I’ll show you a little before and after.

Fall {Ventura County Child Photographer}

Today officially feels like fall to me.  The weather is a little bit cooler, kids have started back to school, and my garden is just about finished.  I’m excited for the change in season and fall is my favorite time of year.  The color palate of these photos that I took at the amazing Jinky Art workshop over the weekend remind me of fall in Southern California and I adore them.  Barb is a complete inspiration and I can’t say enough positive things about her.  I’ll be sharing more images from the workshop in the coming weeks.

A girl and her white horse.I have been beyond busy lately and have a big project in the works that I will be announcing very soon!  I’m completely thrilled about it and if you would like to be in the know be sure to ‘like’ the Daniele Rose Photography Facebook page.  I’ll be talking about it there first.

If you are a client who is waiting for your sneak peek I appreciate your patience!  I’m getting caught up from my trip and will be blogging recent sessions soon.  All galleries will be complete within the normal time frame, so no delays there.

Finally, my calendar for the rest of the year is almost completely booked.  I know…crazy!  Believe me, I double checked.  If you would like to have portraits taken in time for the holidays this year please contact me as soon as possible to reserve your session.

Little Angel {Ventura Newborn Photographer}

Wow…I knew this post would be difficult, but in sitting down to try to write it I’m finding that is almost impossible to get started.  I guess I’ll just start at the beginning, the first time that I heard of this inspiring and lovely family.  It was during the winter, maybe February or so, and I was sick.  So sick that for the first time in my life I completely lost my voice.  I.could.not.talk.at.all.  My hubby and I were sitting on the couch enjoying our quite evening (both because the kiddos were tucked into bed and I had no voice!) and watching the news.  A story about a little girl and her fight with cancer came on and my remote-wielding, tivo-loving husband started to fast forward through it, sensing it would be very sad.  I on the other hand wanted to watch it, but being that I couldn’t tell him to let it play I grabbed the remote from his hand and hit the button myself.  For the following few minutes we both sat there speechless as we watched a heart wrenching story about a beautiful little girl named Allison, who at only17 months old, lost her battle with a rare form of leukemia.  When the piece ended I sat there in silence with tears streaming down my face.  I looked over at my husband, who was of course also saddened by her story, at which point he said “thanks for making me watch that” in an oh-so-sarcastic tone.  But you know what?  I’m glad that I made him watch it.  I’m glad that I watched it.

I was so upset that I couldn’t contain my tears.  I’m not sure why a story about complete strangers shook me the way it did, but for the next couple of days I couldn’t stop thinking about Allison and her family.  I decided to check on the news channel’s website to see if I could find a link to learn more about them, and I did.  I found a link to their blog and read through it crying uncontrollably once again.  Hardly able to see my computer screen I remembered something they had said at the end of the news segment.  They said that Nicole, Allison’s mom, was told that it would be unlikely for her to be able to have any other children because of medical problems that she suffers from.   Even though this was the case she did become pregnant again, and she and her husband were expecting another child, a girl, who was due in the summer.

I’m not typically one to reach out to complete strangers, but somehow after reading their blog, hearing their story, and feeling such pain at the very thought of their loss, somehow they no longer felt like strangers.  I decided to contact Nicole and offer to photograph their new daughter once she was born.  I really thought that I probably wouldn’t receive a reply, and that she would most likely think it was strange that I would even offer given that we didn’t know each other.  But she did reply!  And she was thrilled with my offer…and I am thrilled that she accepted 🙂

Meet Caroline…Allison’s beautiful little sister and her kind and lovely parents…

Although their story is sad, it brings about promise and hope.  Hope of new life and lives saved by their beautiful daughter Allison, and her brave battle with cancer.  Almost 2,000 people have been inspired by her story and joined the National Bone Marrow registry in her honor.  Out of the over 13 million people on the registry, there was one perfect match for Allison.  ONE.   Unfortunately her disease took over and she was unable to receive her transplant.  But maybe YOU could be the one perfect match for someone else.  If you would like more information about becoming a donor please visit http://www.marrow.org/.  And, if you would like to honor Allison’s memory and become a donor you can do so by visiting http://www.marrow.org/JOIN/Join_Now_Sponsored/join_now_sponsored.html.  Follow the onscreen instructions and enter promo code: AllisonsGift when prompted.  This link allows you to share the gift of life free of charge and will be valid through August 31st.

Personally, until this morning I had been hemming and hawing over whether or not I should sign up myself.  But in reading Nicole’s blog about Allison again to get a little background info for this post I saw that Allison’s middle name was Danielle.  Is it a coincidence?  Probably, but maybe…just maybe it is a sign.  A sign that I am the ONE perfect match for someone out there.  Or maybe the fact that you just happend to stumble upon this post today it is a sign that YOU are the ONE.

To Nicole and Shaun:  Caroline is perfect and it has been such a blessing to meet you guys and be able to capture this special time in your lives.  I hope that these images bring a much deserved smile to your faces!  Thank you for allowing me to share your story!

Serendipity {Ventura County Child Photographer}

We had planned to shoot this session in the strawberry fields, but as rare July rain started to pour down on two little girls in a wagon (and some pricey camera equipment!) we made our way to the nearest shelter.  That shelter happened to be tented raspberry greenhouses, inside of which was some of the most beautiful light I’ve ever seen.  And some of the most delicious berries, too!

Maybe it is my long time desire to shoot for Country Living (couldn’t this be a featured spread?), but I have to say that this is right up there with some of my all time favorite sessions.  Thank you to Underwood Family Farms…what a great place for a photo shoot!  And, to the Mamma of these two gorgeous little girls, thanks for trusting in my creative vision.  I hope you love these as much as I do!

Sweet & Silly {Ventura County Child Photographer}

I had such a hard time choosing which images to show in this sneak peek…there are just SO many that I love from this session.  The first birthday is a perfect time to have professional portraits taken.  Little ones are brimming with personality, full of smiles, and many are starting to take their first wobbly steps.  Who wouldn’t want to document that?  Miss Anabel is no exception.  She is silly and sweet, has a smile that can light up a room (or a park in this case!), and possibly has the cutest little chubby thighs I’ve ever seen.
