Before & After

Time for some before and after images! These are from the last engagement session we posted on the blog. Like always, the original photos look good straight from the camera, but there's no reason why you can't enhance least, if you love editing like I do :)

These photos have some changes in temperature color, saturation, and brightness.

Connie & Jason ~ Engaged!

Connie & jason ~ Engaged!
Pasadena, California

Connie and Jason added a few special touches to their engagement session. I loved it! Having a couple put extra thought and time to their engagement session is always welcomed by us. Connie and Jason made a special banner, put together the cutest fruit and vegetable basket, and they even set up a mock picnic. The two locations they chose for their e-session were new to me and I am so happy they introduced us to these two new spots. The first one was a garden and you're even able to pick your own orange. Pretty cool! The next spot was a beautiful open area with just nature as our background. That was definitely my fave, hands down. I loved everything about this session!

Check out their very personalized engagement session:

I wanted to get an action shot of Connie and Jason's doggy so I asked Art to help me get her attention. He did a good job...

bribing her with strawberries! After that she totally loved Art :P

Meet my nephew!

Orange County, California

Last year I posted my cousin's maternity shoot. You can check it out by clicking HERE. Well, since then her baby was born and he is now 7 months! How time flies, right?! When he was about three months old we did a mini shoot with the three of them and I would love to share some of those photos with you guys.

When we went back to their house I got just a few more because I couldn't resist his little baby rolls <3

And of course, behind the scene shots :)

This was just a test shot while my cousin talked to her mom on the phone but it's one of my fave because he looks soooooo cute!

I'm going to be a Co-Maid-of-Honor!

If you've read my blog posts in the past then somewhere in there you must have read that my cousins are all like my sisters. We have all been raised together, dressed alike as children, been each other's best friends, and most importantly, share a tight bond that only we know what it feels like. Sometime last year I got a call from my cousin with her sister, Steph, on three way. She sounded super excited, but that's not rare for Jennifer. HOWEVER, this time it was totally different. She said she found the one and she was engaged and that Steph and I would be her co maid of honor. The reason we got a call instead of finding out in person is because Nancy no longer lives in California :( but a call was just fine because with Jennifer the excitement reaches you even through a phone!

I can't explain how happy and honored I am to get to be her maid of honor. I would almost call it a tradition because we have all been each other's maid of honor. This time around it's a lot different because we're helping her with the wedding all the way from LA and she's on the other side of the country. Being someone's maid of honor is a true honor because the bride is letting you know that she trusts you to be there for her and she wants you standing next to her on the most special day of her life. I can't wait to be standing next to my sisters watching one of them get married to the man of her dreams <3

By the way, I will not be photographing her wedding, in case you were wondering. With our family we have a strict rule, at family events I am always a guest, never a photographer and that's how I like to keep it. For Steph's wedding she even banned my camera from making an appearance. Of course, I took it just in case, but I completely forgot about it all night and I never picked it up even once. That's why family members are not a good choice when picking a photographer! Can't wait to finally be a guest at a wedding! I already have my dress and dancing shoes and I'm ready to go!
