Kendra & Alex

You know how little boys hit girls that they like?  Well, Alex has a similar strategy with the ladies.  Except he likes to take his dates on dangerous adventures.  I think he may scare his dates into liking him ;)

For Kendra and Alex’s first date they went kyaking in the waters off of La Jolla.  La Jolla is not necessarily the calmest bay I’ve ever seen.

For their second date they went paragliding.  Yes, paragliding.  And Kendra almost died.  Okay, that’s a bit dramatic.  But, she did have a dramatic crash landing with her instructor.

So when it came time to propose Alex couldn’t just get down on one knee.  Instead he took Kendra out kayaking on the Fourth of July in La Jolla to watch fire works.  It was dark and there were sea lions.  Kendra said she went from being scared to excited and then back to being scared again.  Any guy who is brave enough to kayak in the dark with an engagement ring in his pocket is pretty brave in my book!

For their engagement session we decided to revisit a few of their memorable date spots.  I’m so excited for their November wedding.  I’m just hoping it won’t be quite as adventourous as their first couple of dates were :)

Baby Alexandria

It’s a baby boom over here lately!  I had 4 mamas due in one week!  Thankfully, this little lady came a week early and that really helped me out :)

Little Alexandria was a perfect model.  And that’s a good thing because her mom, Erin, is a great photographer and will be taking lots of pictures of Lexi.  I’m sure this little girl’s life will be very well documented!  You can tell how happy she is already.  She was totally content the entire session and gave us lots of smiles!  Baby smiles are my fav!

Baby Declan

One of my very best friends had her third boy in February.  He was kind enough to wait three days after Brayden’s birthday to be born :)  Now we’re going to be fighting for birthday party weekends for the next few years!

Brayden is right in the middle of Jamie’s two older sons, Aiden and Liam.  He loves to play with them, but he’s not super close with either of them because of their ages.  Jamie found out she was pregnant towards the end of my pregnancy with my daughter, Kennedy.  When kids are young months seem like a long time.  A 6 month old seems way older than a newborn.  But, at some point during Jamie’s pregnancy I realized that Kennedy and Declan would be in the same grade.  6 months seems like such an age difference now, but in a few years it’s not going to be that big of a deal.  In fact, Jamie is 10 months older than I am.  We were in the same grade and started going to school together in second grade.  Kennedy and Declan are only 6 months apart.  It made me so happy to realize we have kids that are the same age :)  Maybe they’ll even get married some day!

Their family session sure is going to be interesting with THREE boys this year!!!
