I had the honor of photographing newborn baby Raziel Christian in October of 2020 and am finally posting his photos for you all as I edit his first year photos. This sweet baby has a close place to my heart as he is my nephew. From his sweet yawns to his little fingers and toes, I hope you enjoy these highlights as much as I enjoyed photographing them.

Looking for newborn photos? I'd love to be a part of capturing your family's precious moments. Explore my newborn and maternity photos here.

After a long hiatus, I'm re-joining the blogosphere to share the incredible photographable journeys I embark on in my travels and with my wonderful clients.

Firstly, I am so grateful to share about the expansiveness I'm feeling with a workspace in my home that is all my own. Every day I am dreaming up what I am going to bring to life in this space.

So here are a few highlights so far:

1. I photographed Isabella's cake smash photos for her 1st birthday in my new home studio.

2. I took a Stop Motion class by the phenomenal Colette Peri.

2a. I created a cool stop motion of my newest business cards and I invested in various papers, backdrops, and tools to help bring my creative works to life.

3. I subscribed to the LifeLapse stop motion app and joined various educational apps and sites where I can continue to learn and be inspired by other creators! Investing in knowledge and the tools to empower your business is key!

4. I launched two new websites and two social media presences for local businesses.

And most importantly, I started thinking outside the box again.

I look forward to sharing more of my creations with you all soon!

Isabella's studio photos were a smashing success!

While sunset pictures at the park with babies are a beautiful sight in Sonoma County, the weather came with a vengeance, making the warm, indoor studio space more appealing.

Isabella's Wild One themed 1st birthday celebration began early as mom and dad brought a cake and a beautifully crowned princess to photograph her first orbit around the sun.

She was happy to play with Winnie the Pooh and the gang and had lots of giggles in store for us.

Baby Shark played on our radio as we played with Isabella and captured her one-year-old joy. Before we knew it, we were all done!

Watch a cute overview of some fun moments in this brief highlight video:

Until next time,
