Happy Birthday to my little Boo!!!

One year ago today I had just given birth to my beautiful daughter Leda.   I just sat in the room at Sonoma Valley Hospital thinking how crazy it is that I had just gone through my second pregnancy and am now holding my second child.  I couldn't believe that my son was already a year and a half and that I was now a mother of two.  Where did that time go.  Well, here I am a year later and in complete disbelief that my baby girl is now a toddler (sniff sniff).  It seriously flew by.

I've always loved the idea of a cake smash to commemorate a first birthday, so when I thought of what I should do for Leda's special photoshoot today I couldn't pass up the opportunity to do one of our own.  The outfit may be a bit over the top, but you have to admit, it's pretty damn cute.  She was so lady like in the beginning, just picking the little jellies off the top of the cake, but before I knew it she was sticking her foot in the cake.  So much fun.

Happy birthday to my little Boo!

Wine Country Family Photographer | Fall Colors at Their Peak

I had some great family portrait sessions last year and wrapped up the season with this incredibly colorful palette.  This family was so much fun to photograph and just full of so much life and laughter.

Sonoma Portrait Photographer | Together for the Holidays

I had a wonderful time photographing this sweet Sonoma family during Thanksgiving weekend, just in time for their holiday cards and gifts.  It was such a pleasure photographing the kiddos and their parents and grandma too.  Sweetness!
