Found Object | Botanicals | Nature’s Bounty

Every day I take a walk with my kids around neighborhood. It’s a great way to break up the day and there are always new things to discover. Yesterday we found 7 monarch caterpillars chomping on a milkweed plant, their colorful stripes standing out among the half eaten leaves. We know where all the spots are to find the neighborhood kitties; which ones are mean and which ones will let us pet them. All in all, it’s always a fun little outing. Yesterday Genevieve found this odd looking seed “stalk” that had fallen from a tree. As I studied it, I realized that nature could only manufacture something so beautiful. That’s when I started thinking that no matter how nasty and horrible the current events of the world seem, you can still always find beauty in the world.

These were actually photographed in the early morning; a good alternative for business professionals during the week.

Packages for head shots start at $95 and includes one retouched digital image. Contact me using the link above for more information and to schedule a session. Dates are filling up fast with the holidays around the corner!

Baby Milestones | 7 Month Old Baby Portraits | San Elijo Lagoon

Mini sessions are great to capture baby’s milestones throughout their first year. Little ones grow so fast during their first year; and yes, we capture tons of photos on our smart phones, but nothing is like a formal portrait session by a professional photographer! Mini sessions are no-fuss shortened versions of a full portrait session. Perfect for every three months (or how often you choose) during year 1! I love ending the series at 1 year with a cake smash mini session:)

I photographed this little doll at just a couple months old, and recently again at 7 months. How adorable is she? The perfect model. That’s the great thing about mini sessions for babies as well… they are short and sweet and they enjoy themselves too!

Mini sessions are offered a la cart. They are 20 minutes for $79, which includes 1 retouched digital image. Most clients will then add digital images to their order for $29 a piece.
