1 Year Birthday Cake Smash Session

A few weeks back I got to photograph a very special little one having his first tasting of cake. He's my little nephew and now Godson :) Like most cake smash sessions we've done, he didn't really like eating cake. He especially didn't like the getting messy part :P You would think that kids would love that!

There was a lot of crying and trying to run away, but I managed to get some beautiful shots of him laughing. It's funny because it would literally last a few seconds before he would realize that he didn't like it and he would start crying again. All in all, it was totally worth it! We got some great photos of him that I know his parents will treasure forever and they also got to display the photos at his birthday party where the whole family got to enjoy seeing his first time eating cake.

This photo below is my fave! He had just learned how to frown when he doesn't like something and I think it's the cutest thing ever!!

Just for Nataly Lemus Photography Couples!

Like most people, I love a deal! That's why when my favorite coordinator (you might remember them from THIS post) told me she'd be willing to offer our couples ONLY a discounted price for their wedding coordination services I was super happy! I'm sure you know that I think wedding coordinators are God's gift to weddings, right? They make sure everything runs according to plan...and if it doesn't, they are the ones that make sure that it gets back on track and you don't have to worry about it. A good coordinator will make the wedding planning and execution stress free for you so that you and your family can enjoy the day and not worry about the little OR big details.

If you are looking for a day-of-coordinator or a wedding planner that will help you through the whole process of planning a wedding, please give the So So Fab ladies a call! They are sweet women that genuinely care for their couples and their special day! Every time I work with them, I am so happy because I know everything will be taken care of and my couple won't be stressed out, which means pretty smiles for the camera :)

Here are the details to their offer:

It's Our Anniversary!

Like every August 13th, I am so happy to be celebrating my (dating) anniversary with Art, my puppy love...my only love. I feel blessed to get to share my life with such a wonderful man that I met when we were just junior high kids. He's grown into a wonderful and loving man and I am so thankful to God for choosing him for me.

I thought it would be cool to share some portraits we took of ourselves while we were in St. Louis last month. Since we don't really have any professional photos of us together, we decided that it was a must to get some done while on our trip. Especially since we photograph so many couples, it's ironic that we don't really have any photos of us. It was a must! Let me tell you, taking photos of ourselves was no easy task! We had to keep going back and forth until we would get decent framing, then we would position ourselves, then run back and re-arrange the camera. We did all of that in 100 degree weather and it was only like 7 in the morning! Crazy, right? We are happy that we have some cool images of us, though! I can't wait to frame some of the images, if not all!











Of course that with Art there has to be a silly one (or a lot) in the bunch! That's how he keeps me in love, with his silliness :P

I will say, being in front of the camera is no easy task, especially when there is nobody behind the camera to give you feedback :P I would rather stay behind the camera, for sure! You guys can all be my models, instead :P

I hope you all have a great week!

Lili and Ian had their wedding on a beautiful day. The Temecula Creek Inn was a gorgeous venue for such a beautiful wedding. It immediately became one of my favorite venues and I've been to A LOT! I loved all the greenery and the rustic look it had. I'm telling you, I fell in love with it!
