♥ Family

Oh my…the chubby sweetness is too much to handle.

Quick fact: When I moved to Clovis in 2009 this was the FIRST family I photographed! It’s because of them that I met so many of the wonderful clients/friends that I did. Thanks guys…you really made my Clovis experience a memorable one.

Loving, caring, passionate, selfless, funny, knowledgeable and so very welcoming. Those are just a few words I’d use to describe this family. I’m so thankful they welcomed me with open arms when I first moved to Clovis (as they have so many other transplants). I would have been lost without their guidance and friendship.

Cheryl - So great to have a “whole family” photo shoot! Bella, you steal the show!!

Full of Expression

Amidst the whirlwind of being a Mom to a baby, it’s difficult to pause and take notice of the many expressions they make on a daily basis. At just 6 months old this sweetheart has mastered the art of expressing excitement, surprise, puzzlement, wonder….etc.

That’s another reason I love photographing babies… in just 60 seconds they can express 100 different looks and I have to joy of capturing every frame.

Just look at those little feet!

This cutie is no stranger to the camera. Check out her pre-birth and newborn shots.

A Breeze

Six kids and these guys were a million times less stressful to photograph than just one of my own kids.

With only 30 minutes to take their photos I kinda feel like we performed a small miracle by getting so many awesome images.

Trust me when I say I’m not as funny as they make me appear. Their Mom was behind me coming up with all sorts of funny word combinations. I believe “fuzzy pickles” was a hit.

Tell me…how old are you?
FYI – Dad isn’t one…he’s just helping out his 11 year old, 10 fingered son.

Cheryl - What a miracle! Getting a family of six to look in one direction! You’re amazing and so are they. Gorgeous. PS – How did she get them all color coordinated? I can’t even manage it with the four of us!
