How cute are these boots?! And boots! And pigtails! Just about as cute as this little one. This is part one, but we didn’t want to keep these all to ourselves. Enjoy the sneak peeks!
It was great to work with a fellow photographer who is just the sweetest person, with a wonderful family to match! They are so warm and friendly, and that really comes across in their portraits. This first one was my absolute favorite from the session that Nikkie captured, and the image on the front of their holiday card. Well chosen!
These girls came in with their gorgeous Christmas dresses, and we did some formal portraits in the studio. However, because kids are kids, we wanted them to be a little playful and show their personality. I just love the sparkle in big sister’s eyes, and little sis is so cute with those adorable curls!

Well, it wasn’t exactly a forest, but these two adorable girls were like modern fairies in their gorgeous holiday dresses, with the backdrop of massive tree roots in Balboa Park. Balboa Park has so many different looks and feels, that it’s always fun to photograph there. And these girls were just beautiful and a pleasure to work with! Enjoy the sneak peeks!

We wrapped up Miss Madi’s Busy Bee session with a combo family session at the Oceanside Pier. We were caught off guard that the fog had rolled in sooo thick when we got there. But it turned out beautiful – a little mysterious, and simply cool!

Well, we first met this little darling when she turned one. I remember mom walking up, and then pulling back the top on the stroller, and this cute little toddler with electric blue eyes looked up at me – - – and I felt like I’d just won a jackpot! It always comes down to the eyes. After all, they are the windows to the soul, and this little girl had amazing eyes. So now it’s 2 years later, and she is just as cute as ever, and still rockin’ her baby blues!
Such a cute outfit, and I had to get the shoes, too!

How cute are these girls, especially kicking back with their cowboy boots!
Such a sweet family – you can tell they have a lot of love!
The girls were cracking each other up. In the next shot, they were sticking their tongues out!
How gosh-darn sweet is this little one? We had the pleasure of photographing this posh little half-pint in studio, and also at Leo Carillo Ranch.
Formal portraits are important to some families, especially around the holidays when the kids get dressed up in their special suits and dresses, but we believe children are usually more natural in an outdoor environment, so we headed out to the Ranch.
Nikkie and I were just dying with this aDORable dress and hat. We loved the dress, but the hat was just the PERFECT accessory! Toooo cute!
Love this look . . .
This is an incredible offer, and it ends Tuesday. Don’t let it pass you by – act now!

This family was just soo sweet. Even with 4 young boys, the parents were patient and kind, and we had a great time! They were here for their annual vacation – coming to us all the way from Nevada! All the boys enjoyed looking in and around the rocks finding LOTS of crabs – and while we were working on the portraits, we were graced by several dolphins frolicking nearby in the water. I ask you – how’s that for a day’s work?
Remember – it’s not too early to be thinking about your family photos for those holiday cards! And feel free to leave a kind word down below, it’s much appreciated!
This is a great story of a legacy of love! Grandma-to-be is just so incredibly excited about the upcoming birth of her grandchild that she decided to spoil baby, mommy, and daddy by investing in our Chrysalis Collection. This collection focuses on telling that special story of each new belly to baby. Mom and Dad were absolutely awesome to work with and let’s face it mom’s belly is just so beautiful and tiny! Mom disagreed with the “tiny” part so of course we had to tell her to invest in glasses and a good mirror because…just look at her…she’s only sporting a basket ball when I was sporting an over-sized watermelon when I was in my eighth month!
Anyway…here are a few sneak peaks for grandma, mom and dad of a few of the “less revealing” images from the day. We’ll see you soon so you can check out the rest of the images from the session! Let us know what you think by leaving comments bellow!
Madi Rae came back to see us, and she’s as cute as ever! She whizzed through several outfit changes, and we got some really fun images! Mom was a great sport, as we all made funny faces and noises to coax a smile out of Miss Madi. Here are a handful of our favorites from the day. Enjoy mom and dad!
So many of our expectant parents ask us when they should come in for their newborn portraits and we always reply the same way…”Meet us on your way home from the hospital.” There’s usually a long pause as they wait for us to say we’re kidding, but guess what?…for the most part we’re really not joking!
The absolute BEST time to photograph a newborn is within the first week of their precious lives, under two weeks is acceptable but is starting to push it. You see…newborn’s under one week of age still sleep like the dead (not mine unfortunately, she’s NEVER slept like the dead a day in her life…not even in the womb, but MOST do).
They also haven’t had time to realize that they’re not crammed into a tight little space anymore, so they still curl up in that adorable fetal pose. But after day ten (give or take a few days)?… you can just forget about getting that amazingly classic newborn pose without your little one putting up a fight. The secret is out and every time you try to curl them up they just can’t wait to pop those tiny limbs back out again.
Also two to three weeks is about the time a lovely case of baby acne can rears it’s ugly head…no pun intended. Of course we still photograph newborns that have passed the two week mark, and we still capture amazing images of these tiny new beings, it’s just that the longer you wait the harder it is on both the baby and the parents.
So to summarize the answer to the question “when should we schedule our newborn session?”…the sooner the better!!!
This tiny little guy was only 10 days old, and both he and big brother did a great job in front of the camera! Mom and Dad love sepia toned images, so we put the finishing touches on a few of our favorites and here they are as a little sneak peak. Hope you love them as much as we do!
Your input is REALLY IMPORTANT to us so let us know what you think of our images by posting your comments at the bottom of each posting.
La Jolla Cove is one of the most beautiful beaches to photograph at in San Diego. The incredible blues and greens of the water, mixed with the fascinating rock formations and cliffs makes for a dramatic scene. So it was an obvious choice for us when this gorgeous family requested their portraits be photographed at the beach.
Another wonderful feature of the Cove is that it borders the urban beauty of downtown La Jolla. This close proximity allows us to dramatically change the feel of our images by driving just a few blocks up from the beach to the beautiful brick buildings and chic sidewalks of La Jolla. The art and fashion district of La Jolla makes the perfect setting for a precious little girl to dance down the street in her purple tutu and jean jacket. These are a few of our favorites from the session. Hope you love them as much as we do mom and dad!
We are always looking for locations like this where we can get the best of both worlds without having to travel very far between the two. Do you have any favorite locations that you’d like to suggest we use for our portraits? Please let us know by leaving your comments here. Thanks! Nikkie of BlueFlair Photography
