How awesome is it to turn 15, have your very own photo session for your birthday invites, and look this fabulous? Marisa’s nina wanted her to have an extra special photo session for her 15th birthday invitations, so she set up this session, and voila here are some really pretty photos of Marisa, her beaded sparkle dress and gold balloons. What else could a teen want? Happy Birthday Marisa! Hope you have a blast at your party!!!

I’m not sure which sessions I feel more honored to be apart of; those of my friends or those that are referred by friends, family and even past clients. What I do know is that I love maternity sessions! Something about a first or even a third pregnancy and each mother’s excitement automatically lifts my spirits and makes me want to jump up for joy that they are blessed with this gift of another human. Toby was actually referred to me by one of my dear grad school friends and I couldn’t be more thrilled! Toby and Jeffrey are admittedly homebodies and just enjoy the simple things in life…like staying in to watch a good flick, grubbing at some good eateries and just being together. With that being said, they are ready to welcome their son, Oliver into their comfy lifestyle. Through out the session Toby and Jeffrey were one of those couples that hardly needed any direction. They just fell into place whenever I was about to put them into position. Along with her natural beauty and his handsome retro look they were such a joy to photograph! I’m sure little Oliver is going to be one handsome hunk! Toby and Jeffrey, Congratulations on your journey into parenthood! 2014-09-24_00012014-09-24_00022014-09-24_00032014-09-24_00042014-09-24_00052014-09-24_00062014-09-24_00072014-09-24_00082014-09-24_00092014-09-24_00102014-09-24_00112014-09-24_00122014-09-24_00132014-09-24_00142014-09-24_00152014-09-24_00162014-09-24_00172014-09-24_00182014-09-24_00192014-09-24_00202014-09-24_00212014-09-24_00222014-09-24_00242014-09-24_00252014-09-24_00262014-09-24_00272014-09-24_00282014-09-24_00292014-09-24_00302014-09-24_00312014-09-24_00322014-09-24_00332014-09-24_00342014-09-24_00352014-09-24_00362014-09-24_00382014-09-24_00392014-09-24_00402014-09-24_00412014-09-24_00422014-09-24_00432014-09-24_00442014-09-24_00452014-09-24_00482014-09-24_00492014-09-24_0047

    

Babies are like little pretty packages controlling the music to an intense game of musical chairs. This usually drives parents-to-be insane because they never know when or where the music will go off…and there you go, rushing to the delivery room. This was true for Christina and Mario. Baby Marina was ready to come out, but wasn’t quite sure when to make her grand debut. Christina had been having contractions for a couple of days and decided to check herself into the hospital. When they got there, she was barely dilating so they sent her back home. Like with most women, this last stretch of the pregnancy is truly torturous because everything hurts and you are tired, but you also want to see your darling babe pop out. Christina and Mario went back a few days later. Their little nugget took her time. The waiting finally ceased and beautiful Marina Grace arrived as healthy as can be on August 8, 2014. Welcome Marina!
