The Harris Family

Oh, hey there poor neglected blog.  Do people even read blogs anymore?  I’m not sure, but if you’re here reading this hi! Nice to see you.

I took a little photography hiatus in 2017.  I called it a retirement.  However, it was short lived so now I’m calling it a sabbatical.  I’m going to be shooting a little in 2018.  Not as much as years past.  I’m going to try and figure out what works for me and my family.  Because my main job is being an Uber driver to my two very busy kiddos.

But, back to pictures.  This family is from Kennedy’s dance studio although we have several more connections besides that.  Stephanie is the dance mom I’d most like to be like.  Her daughters are talented and beautiful, but most importantly kind and incredibly smart.  I sat next to her one day and said, “Okay.  Tell me everything you’ve done to raise such awesome kids.  I want all your secrets.” She gives her hard working kids most of the credit, but I’m still waiting for all of Stephanie’s secrets.

I was so excited to photograph older kids because I didn’t have to bribe anyone with gummy bears.  And then they asked to bring their THREE dogs. However, this ended up to be great because I got to bring Brayden along to assist.  If you book a shoot with me this year you just might see Brayden tagging along with me because he’s a great assistant!  He’s helped on a couple of other shoots and he makes my job SO much easier.  And I love getting to spend time with that kid.  He’s awesome. And so is this family!

Baby Wesley

The streak of baby boys continues.  Baby Wesley was a dream.  So easy and so happy.  I love newborn sessions because there is so much down time, which means I really get a lot of time to chat with my clients.  I loved chatting about dance with his sweet Mama.  And I really appreciated the extra set of hands that Grandma lent me.  Seriously, I could use her as an assistant!

Heather, Justin and Baby Charlotte

I shot their engagement session at Disneyland so it was only fitting to shoot their maternity session at California Adventure.  It’s such an honor when past wedding clients ask me to photograph their growing families.  And I just love getting to hang out and catch up.  Heather and Justin’s wedding was almost seven years ago so we had quite a bit of catching up to do!  And we had plenty of walking to do also so there was lots of time!  Congrats Heather and Justin!  So happy for you both!
