San Diego Newborn Photographer ~ 12 days new baby “W”

Welcome to the world baby W. I met this adorable little guy at 12 days old and he was just a dream to work with (I think that part must come from his amazing parents). It’s rare that I work with a baby that reminds me so much of one of my boys and little W did just that, with his perfect newborn chub and his nice head of the softest blonde hair. I kinda wanted to keep him <3

The Lovely Miss B ~ Murrieta HeadShot Photographer

I was just thrilled to do head shots for the lovely Miss B, and got to work with her in the studio and outdoors to get a nice variety.

Here are just a few of my favorites, hope you enjoy your sneak peek!








Glitter, glitter! Yes, another glitter session!

Talk about fun! I had another darling girl in the studio to enjoy the pounds of glitter. I love to watch how much fun the kids have playing and don’t seem to notice I am there as much.

Hope you enjoy the sneak peek of another fun glitter session!










Murrieta Children’s Photographer ~ Glitter session!

What is more fun that a few pounds of glitter, a fun 5 year old little girl, and playing dress up? Not much that I can think of!

Sometimes my job is so fun I just have to pinch myself. I hope you enjoy this sneak peek of Miss E at her very own glitter session!








Cameron is two!

If you know me, you know I love a good party. I love planning parties, hosting parties, and I even love staying up all hours of the night working on details of parties. I can only do this a few times a year and our boys birthdays are when I get my party planning bug going full force. Cameron’s 2nd birthday was not without a little extra struggle and sadness because Carter fought some yucky bug the day before the party. Not only is nursing my sweet boy NOT in the party plan agenda, but I was heartbroken he was going to miss the party because Cameron is one of Carter’s biggest fans.

So of course I spent more time snuggling Carter than working on last minute party details, and also the day of the party was so crazy with my husband staying upstairs to snuggle Carter I missed so many photos, I can’t believe I didn’t get ONE photo of the birthday boy with my parents, how did that happen? The day just went really fast, I think the good news is everyone had a great time and we were so happy to have our friends and family join us for Cameron’s 2nd birthday, a music theme, because that is just what he’s into these days. That and cars….

Here are the highlights of the day, of the photos I managed to capture.

Anniversary Photo Session and Pre-deployment: adorable couple M&K

It was my pleasure to meet this amazing couple M&K shortly after their first wedding anniversary. Further, this new bride will be seeing her husband off to a 9 month deployment in 2014. I adored this sweet couple as well as their puppy, named Chewy, who was true to his namesake when he chewed right through his leash in the middle of the session! Much love to both of you and thank you for choosing me to capture this special time in your lives, enjoy your sneak peek. XO Sara

Welcome to this world Kason ~ Newborn Slide Show

Newborn Kason and his wonderful parents came into the studio at 12 days old. He is just a precious sweet boy, already very curious about the world around him. As all the newborns I photograph, he really dictated the type of session we had, which meant a lot of time in mom and dad’s arms, precious moments captured forever.

M family Mini-Session Peek ~ Murrieta Portrait Photographer

It was such a gorgeous morning to do a mini session for this adorable M family. The last family session I did for them when mom was pregnant with their youngest. It was also in the winter/early spring and we had to reschedule a few times due to weather. The NIGHT after we finally captured mom beautifully pregnant in their family photos, baby T made her arrival. I couldn’t believe the timing.

Here is the latest mini session with the M family, enjoy your sneak peek, and if you are reading I’d love a comment that you stopped by.
