Brayden’s Debut

A couple of months ago I was contacted by Jaclyne from Heavenly Blooms about photographing a holiday themed shoot that she was collaborating with a few other amazing vendors (The Tomkat Studio, Sweet and Saucy, and Chic Celebrations).  Of course I couldn’t say no.  When she suggested that Brayden model for the shoot as well, I was a bit… scared.  He’s not always the easiest kid to photograph and he happened to be pretty sick that day, but it was actually a lot of fun to have him on the shoot.  Kind of like take my son to work day!  And I have to say, he is a super cute little model, don’t you think?

I had SO much fun on this shoot and getting to work with these incredibly talented ladies!  I was so honored that they asked me to shoot it for them.  You can see many, many more pictures from this fun shoot on Hostess With the Mostess!  Part One here and Part Two here!

Andrea and Dana’s wedding was my last of 2010 and it was a great way to end the year!  I loved working with the two of them.  Super laid back and easy going and they were more concerned about all of their family and friends having a great time than anything else.  Speaking of friends and family, they were all SO nice!  Made the day so fun and easy.  And Andrea’s attention to detail is impeccable!  Loved all of her props and fun touches!

Andrea and Dana got ready at the Hotel La Casa Del Camino in Laguna Beach.  Big thanks to Andrea’s awesome friend, Sam, who talked the management in to letting Andrea get ready in the Billabong suite!

Dana was a big motocross star and his best year was 1992.  Hence his nickname, 92.

This was the first time Dana has every written Andrea a card!  Hard to believe!  Andrea was very touched.

The weather forecast for their wedding day looked great all week.  Low 80′s in December!  But, that day the weather didn’t want to cooperate.  It was sunny and warm on one side of the street and totally socked in on the other side of the street.  Of course the side of the street we needed to shoot on.  I like the moodiness of the fog, though!  Very romantic!

Andrea and Dana were married at Tivoli Terrace in Laguna Beach.  Andrea’s niece / flowergirl just started walking so she needed a little help.  Isn’t this the cutest?

Andrea’s brother in law married them.  I love when a couple chooses to have someone who really knows them officiate the ceremony.  Makes it that much more special and personal.
