Claremont Family and Children Photographer {The Hertz Family} and Indy Too!

I have loved the Hertz Family for years now. It's been so special being able to photograph their engagement photos, featuring their sweet, little dog Indy. I then photographed their wedding, sweet Eli's first year and now precious baby Scarlett is on the scene. It has been such a blessing knowing this family and watching their children grow.

They drove up from their family home in Huntington Beach to Claremont for the photo shoot. I took them to this sweet park that is perfect for photos. Claremont is filled with beautiful parks and this is one of my favorites. Eli and Indy were on the go so I photographed them just as they were. Sweet baby Scarlett is just adorable. I love that she is getting those cute little chubby thighs. I was surpised that we could get family photos with everyone, including the dog, but I did it and they turned out great. I am sure the kids slept alll the way back to Huntington beach, leaving a peaceful drive to Mom and dad! Here are just a few photos from this sweet family shoot.

Damien High School Senior Photographer {Connor Class of 2012}

Meet Connor... He is a Damien High School Class of 2012 graduate. I have loved watching Connor grow up from a little boy into this talented young man. His future is so bright. His talents in Water-Polo earned him a spot on Pepperdine University's Water Polo team. I am so proud of him.
His mom is one of my best friend's and I was honored when she asked me to take his senior photos. I met Connor for a few photos around the campus. I loved documenting his 4 years at Damien by taking photos in the arches and at the bench where the kids would spend so much time after school waiting for a ride home and by the new athletic building.
Connor's letterman's jacket is embellished with his great honors from his time at Damien High School. What an amazing graduate he is! Lots of love to him in the future and I am excited to come down to Pepperdine and watch him play!

Claremont Family and Children Photographer {Andre is One}

Oh what fun I had with little, baby Andre. This was his last session of his babies first year plan that I offer. It is 3 photo sessions, Newborn, 6-8 months and lastly the one year shoot. His parents brought lots of fun props to celebrate his first birthday. We headed down to Claremont to one of my favorite locations. We even got a few family photos too.

Andre is just adorable and his sweet baby face and smile brightened up my day. He was a trooper, he had not been feeling well but you would never be able to tell in these darling photos.
Here is a sneak peak at our session.

I love country engagement sessions. I took Stephen and Emily up in the hills of San Dimas and we found the perfect photo spots. I set up the sweetest country picnic for them and the golden sunshine made for the most amazing engagaement photos.

Emily and Stephen are so sweet and their love shines through in these photos. I am so excited for their wedding in May. Here are a few of my favorites from my day with them. Enjoy. xo

Lutheran High School Senior Photographer {Madison Class of 2012}

I just LOVE photographing High School Seniors. They are just so full of life, excitement for the future, and joy. A friend of mine referred Madison to me for her senior photos. I was so happy to spend time with this sweet girl. She is a senior at Lutheran High School in La Verne. She is a cheer leader, honor roll student and faithful friend. We walked around the city streets and got some really cool photos. We talked about her college plans and she has already received a few acceptance letters. Her future is as bright as a shining star. It was such a pleasure to take Madison's senior photos and I can't wait to see where she will be off to in the fall.

Claremont Family and Children Photographer {The Smiderle's}

I adore this sweet family. I have loved every minute of photographing for them, from their engagement to wedding, newborn to first year and now 2nd year photos with sweet Isabella. Thank you for sharing your precious lives with me and my camera. We just had a ball in Claremont taking photos. I found a gorgeous little meadow filled with white flowers, and old rustic fence and cobblestone everywhere. Claremont is unique that way, you find hidden little gems that make for great photos. Here is a sneak peak into this family photo shoot. I am using my new magazine style blog for this children and family session. I hope you like it. Let me know what you think.
