Maternity Leave Schedule

*** This post will remain at the top of the blog.  Please scroll down for new posts.

Hello Friends!

If you didn’t already know, I am expecting a baby in August.  I will be taking maternity leave August and September and will be returning back to work October 1st.  I am currently booked for portrait sessions through the end of the year and am booking for January 2012.

Newborn Clients – I do have a few spots left for newborn sessions this Fall.  If you are thinking about booking a newborn session please do so ASAP as I am only taking a limited number of sessions in the Fall.

Portrait Clients – If you are interested in getting on the wait list for portrait sessions please email and I will put you on the wait list.  I may open up a couple of “mini session” dates and I will announce them here on my blog as well as my Facebook page if I decide to do so.

Prospective Wedding Clients – I will do my best to answer your inquiries in a timely matter while I’m on leave.  I will not be holding any client meetings for the month of August, but will most likely begin to schedule meetings again in September.

Current Wedding and Portrait Clients – Please feel free to contact me at any point during my maternity leave.  I will get back to you, it might just take me a little longer than usual as I get adjusted to being a mom of 2 :)  If you have print orders I would get those in ASAP!  I will still be processing print orders, but it will take me longer than normal to get them to you.

I still have a few sessions to blog and I’m waiting on 3 newborns to be born before I officially start my leave.  So, please check back for those sessions and of course for pictures of our new baby girl when she arrives!

The Heller Family

Aloha!  Did you miss me?  Took a little vaca to Hawaii and meant to blog while I was there, but I got so caught up relaxing that I forgot :)

But, I am super excited to share this session with you!  I’ve known Erin and Jenner for several years now.  I shot Kirra’s newborn session and their family session last year.  Since then they’ve welcomed a new little man into their lives, Taj.  He’s a heart breaker already!

Jenner is a huge surfer so they spend a lot of family time at the beach.  I knew we had to do their session there.  Kirra loves the water and already does a little surfing herself.  I’m pretty sure these kids are going to be amazing surfers!  I love this session because it really captures what they love to do together as a family!

Here are a few of my favorites and also the slideshow!

Shelagh & Nic

Shelagh and Nic’s love for one another is magnetic.  You can’t help but smile when you are around them.  It seems as though they have been together forever.  The way they finish each others sentences and their effortless relationship.  But, I was shocked to find out that they have been together for less than a year.  I first met Shelagh when she was a bridesmaid at Nicole and Jeremy’s wedding last August.  Turns out, that wedding was their second date!  They got engaged a couple of months ago and Nic is leaving for military training very soon (he’s going to be a JAG lawyer.  How cool is that?).

It’s been a whirlwind romance, but I completely understand why.  As we were saying our goodbyes at the end of our shoot I turned to Shelagh and told her she had a catch.  Nic is not only handsome, but he is smart, funny, and most importantly a complete and total gentleman.  I’m not sure I’ve met a man (other than my husband, of course) who is so such a gentleman.  Shelagh said, “Now you understand why our relationship moved so fast!”.  I do, Shelagh!  You two are perfect for one another!

We met at The Jonathan Club in Downtown Los Angeles.  Downtown is where Shelagh and Nic both work and spend a lot of time.  And Nic proposed to Shelagh on the rooftop terrace of The Jonathan Club.  It was the perfect setting for their engagement pictures.

Shelagh and Nic, I had an amazing time getting to know you two better!  I know the next 6 months are going to be difficult for you both, but I know it will only make your relationship stronger in the end!  Here’s your slideshow!
