6 {Months} and {Growing}

My niece turned 6 months in February and my sister and I set up a time to take some photos of her, since we were unable to take each month of her first year we thought we could just take photos of her every six months. We had a lot of fun with her, she is the cutest little girl on this planet and is just a ham, she worked it the entire shoot and was so good for the entire shoot.

Little {Deegan} on the Way

My friend Kirsten, whom I’ve grown up with at Lake Havasu is pregnant with her first child. While I attended her baby shower int he Los Angeles area I also took her maternity photos. I can’t believe this woman is having a baby and I cannot wait to meet this little boy. Here are some images from both her maternity session and the baby shower.

Here {She} Comes…

Back in June, yes June my mother and I threw my sister’s baby shower for the arrival of her first born, Jordan Noel Golston. This baby shower went into a lot of detail and took a few months to finally get everything set up. Of course being the photographer I am I had to photograph the entire baby shower. Below are some of the photos I snapped. If anyone has any questions about how we made anything of where we bought some items feel free to ask. I am more than welcome to answer.

Derek is {Growing}

My little cousin Derek is growing up so fast, he was only born in January and has gotten so big already! Its amazing how much a baby grows in their first year. I can’t wait to see what more learns and how much more he grows as time goes on. Here is a little shoot I did with him about a month ago just to document his growth.

The {Niece} Is On Her Way!

Very soon I will become an Aunt for the first time. My sister, Nicole will be having her first child in July or August of this year. My family is so excited for this bundle of joy to arrive and begin a new generation to this family. So of course being the photographer of the family I took my sister’s maternity photos. Here is a look into the session and watch out for my little niece, Jordan’s newborn session very soon!!

Jaxon is Here!

I have been putting together a maternity/newborn project for the past few months and this new mommy is part of it. I caught her about two weeks before Jaxon actually arrived and man was I lucky I did. This post consists of a few photos from her maternity session and a few from Jaxon’s newborn session. This little guy is two cute and a smile to die for. I see a lot of his dad in him but Keisha says everyone thinks he looks more like her. Thank you for being so patient and allowing me to capture this special moment if your lives. Keep a look out for my final project coming in a few weeks!

My Newest Baby {85mm}

I am a Nikon addict! Ever since I have been interested in photography I have always shot with a Nikon. As a photographer you are often trying to grow your collection of equipment. I don’t like to call it my equipment though, I call it my family {my camera family, of course!}. I am lucky enough to have my family growing quite fast! The newest addition to my family is the 85mm Nikon lens. It was my birthday about two weeks ago and my mother’s gift to me was this lens! I am such a spoiled girl! I am so lucky for the things I am given in my life. I have gotten to do two shoots with this lens so far and it is amazing! I absolutely love it! It will not replace my favorite lens the 50mm though! I call it my baby because since I don’t have children {and I won’t for a long time!} these are basically my children. I take care of them, make sure their clean, and make sure their safe 24/7. I love my babies! Here are some photos of my newest baby!

Little “D” – 21 Days New

On January 21, 2012, Chrissy Winchester gave birth to her second child a beautiful little boy named Derek Donald Winchester, who actually happens to be my tenth cousin on my mother’s side of the family.

I love having a huge family and I am proud to announce that our family is even getting bigger then with adding Derek to the mix, I am going to become an aunt. My sister announced a little over a month ago that she is pregnant and we will soon be adding a new little boy or girl to this crazy family of ours. Make sure you keep a look out for her maternity, newborn, and family portraits this summer.

Back to the Winchester family, on January 27, 2008, Chrissy Winchester gave birth to her first child, Allison Reese Winchester. Allison or Alli for short, is now a proud big sister. As a toddler you can never predict what they will do and Chrissy had asked me that besides just photographing Derek by himself she asked if I could take some of the two kids together. Being a portrait photographer I am always shooting my own family as well. When you have as big of a family as I do you use that to your advantage. Alli is comfortable around me and as a normal toddler your around they will not listen to you every minute of the day. As we were shooting Alli was by her mother’s side the entire time anxious to pose with her new brother. Once it became her time she decided she no longer wanted photos taken of her and began to fuss and not listen. Luckily I got a few photos of them togehter. Next time I have a toddler and a newborn I will make sure I do the sibling/family photos first. Of course the newborn will likely go back to sleep.

Overall it was a great experience, I love photographing newborns and children no matter how hard it can be at times. Make sure you follow along and watch both Derek and Allison grow older. Here are some photos from the session.
