More pictures of Blair? Yup!

So a few posts down I showed off the super hot pictures that Mathieu Photography took for us. So I will spare you my raves about them, since you all know how much I love them and their work….but I will make you endure a few more pictures of me!

After our Trash the Dress session, Matt and Molly snapped a few pictures of me for my web site (since I figure clients just might want to see what kind of craziness they are getting into before they get in touch). ;)

So here are just a few of my favorites that really show the true fun & crazy side of me….
(I am still trying to figure out how I want to set up the “About me” section on my web site , so be sure to let me know what your favorite is!)

This last one is just so you can see how fierce I am ;)

Advent Conspiracy

They played this at church today and it really hit home for me, I have to admit I got a little teary eyed.
Watch and share if you would like, but just keep in mind what the holidays are really about......
& imagine the possibilities.

P.s. I thought for a second that maybe my "business" blog is not the place for religion, but its who I am. And its my blog. ;)

San Diego Portrait Photography - { Maronee , Ryan and Brayden : Family Portraits! }

I know Maronee through my cousin Heather. I got to know Maronee a little better during a girl’s weekend in Huntington Beach (when we were out celebrating before Heather tied the knot this past summer). While we were out - Maronee and I talked and talked, and in the middle of it – her mom sent her a text message with a picture of Maronee’s son Brayden. She showed me his picture on her phone- and my heart melted right then and there. I knew that I HAD to take his picture! This little guy is just too adorable for words.

So Maronee dropped me an e-mail a couple weeks ago so that we could schedule a session for some Christmas gifts for her family – and I just so happened to be invited to a family party in San Diego that weekend so it worked out so perfectly – I got to hang out with Maronee and her family all day, and my awesome family that night (even though the hubby and in-laws could not make it).
Anyway…I am digressing a bit here….. I was so excited to take a few pictures of Maronee and Brayden since they are so gorgeous, then I met Ryan and he’s quite the handsome guy too! I got very lucky with this beautiful family! And not only did I get to follow them around the beautiful house, but we also met up with their BIG family at the beach afterward (the extended family photos will be posted next).

Okay okay…on to the photos…..

Are you kidding me with this cuteness!?

Did I mention that I LOVE this little guy!?

...and a little dramatic lighting


(I could not decide between these last two)

Maronee, thank you so much for keeping me in mind for your family photos. I am in love with Brayden, he has to be the sweetest most adorable little guy ever! He was such a trooper all day! I truly hope that my future children are as good as he is! ;) (I’m sure it has a lot to do with you and Ryan being such awesome , beautiful parents!)

Fullerton Portrait Photography - Julie and the gang.... Holiday family photos.

Julie grew up with my mom (in-law) Diane and her sisters Debbie and Maria (my aunties) . She is seriously amazing and super fun, and has a few equally amazing children - Jess , Owen , and Wyatt . Last year I shot Julie and her boys for their Christmas cards, and we also met up for an additional session with her "big family" including her parents, sisters - and her sisters husbands and kids. It was such a blast. So this will be our 3rd session together!
I could not be any more appreciative for all of her continued support as I am starting my photography career.

The five of us cruised around Fullerton and found a few fun spots....
Now on to the photos! But be warned, this family is beyond hot!

Oh and watch out for some engagement / wedding pictures some time in the near future. Julie is recently engaged and should be getting married pretty soon! Date TBA ;)
Is she not going to be an amazingly beautiful bride?!
