Happy Birthday Liam!

Dear Liam,

You have brought so much joy to everyone who has the pleasure to know you.  I can’t believe how fast one year has gone by.  You’re not a little baby anymore.  You’re growing into a beautiful, fun, and smart boy.  I can’t wait to see what the next year has in store for you!



PS  I’m sorry you did not like your cake and we forced you to take these pictures, but I promise one day you will look back and laugh at them.  Or at least your Mom and I will get a good laugh!

The Licht Family

My very last holiday shoot of the year!  Whew!  I’m tired!

I had so much fun getting to know the Licht family.  I absolutely love Madeleine and Josh’s love story.  Madeleine, who is from Sweeden, and Josh, who is from the US, met in Greece in the Summer of 2005.  They spent the whole week together in Greece.  Madeleine returned home, but they decided to meet up a week later in Berlin, and then in London, and then Josh went to Sweden for three weeks.  Josh invited Madeleine to his brother’s wedding in Las Vegas and Madeleine said she would go if Josh sent her a ticket.  The next day the ticket was emailed to her!  She was supposed to stay in LA for a month and has now been her for 5 years.  Isn’t that romantic?

Madeleine, Josh, and their two daughters Abigail and Mackenzie just returned from living in Sweden for awhile.  That’s where Mackenzie, who is just 4 months old, was born.  Both girls have dual citizenship.  How cool is that!  Abigail also speaks fluent Swedish!  Smart little lady!

It was great getting to know you all!  Here’s your slideshow!

The Cordero Family

Meet Juliette.  She is a super fun, super energetic almost two year old who loves shoes, Dora the Explorer, playing chase and having tea parties with her stuffed Woody doll.  Mom is a Trojan, but Juliette is already showing a preference towards UCLA since her favorite colors are blue and gold :)

I had so much fun getting to know the Cordero family.  Monica went to law school with one of my best friends and we automatically had lots of friends in common so that was fun.  Monica planned this shoot to correspond with Juliette’s second birthday and she put a lot of effort into the setup.  I love when parents do that!  Juliette loves to have tea parties with her stuffed animals so it was the perfect setting to have a pre-birthday celebration complete with cake and singing.  It was a lot of fun!

Happy early birthday, Juliette!  Here’s your slideshow!
