New Baby Smell

I’ve been called crazy and weird before because I LOVE that new baby smell. Love it. LOVE.IT. And the farther away my own children get from the time they were tiny babies, the more I seem to long for that new baby smell. So whenever the opportunity arises to be around a precious baby, any baby, I jump at the chance. Don’t judge me.

Olivia arrived to a home with two little brothers and all of a sudden the house was filled with pink ribbons, flowery dresses and smiley faces. I treasured every second of this shoot. Precious.❤️

Maria & Diome

I love love LOVE these guys. Diome is a fellow photog and we met a few years ago when I moved in next door to them. We were both starting out and we would geek out on taking pictures while Maria offered me wine…. instant love ❤️! Over the next few years they became dear friends and super duper special to me.

In February, Diome asked me if I would help him surprise his lovely wifey by taking their picture. He’s been so busy behind the lens and really wanted to surprise Maria for Valentine’s Day, her birthday and I’m pretty sure there’s another special day in there that falls on the same day as everything else. Of course, I agreed!

We met in downtown L.A. and I’ll never forget the look on Maria’s face when she saw me and wondered “why the heck is that short girl taking our picture?!!”

SURPRISE!! Happy…. everything!

We had a blast. And after 17 years of marriage, you can still see the love.

Kelly

I love this girl. I have watched her grow from a tiny little thing into this beautiful young woman who is ready to graduate from High School. Not only is she drop dead gorgeous, she has a beautiful heart as well. We had a blast taking her senior pictures today and I couldn’t pick just a few, I loved every single one. Congratulations on your upcoming graduation, Kelly. I wish you the best on your new chapter. Love you!
