This evening I had the pleasure of photographing a woman who’s Husband is currently serving over in Iraq. Her Husband talked her into having some professional photos done – although I think she actually enjoyed it. Sssshhhh, it will be our little secret. 😉

A beautiful evening to be at the beach, and a clear sunset. We did have to dodge some tourists, and two other Photographers, but in the end we did ok.

Lastly a message to all of the men and women serving in Iraq – THANK YOU for all that you do! Our freedoms here in the United States are not taken for granted, and your sacrifices are very much appreciated.

Something must be in the water. Today finished a month full of maternity and newborn photo sessions for us – everybody is having babies! Don’t look now, but things don’t appear to be slowing down in April!

Today’s Mommy & Daddy are expecting their bundle of joy in May, and they are ready for their little boy to arrive. Well, maybe not exactly ready, but who is ever really ready when the baby comes…?

We got a beautiful variety of photographs today, I’m sure everyone will have a tough time choosing their pictures (as always – it’s a goal of ours).

Thanks guys, we’ll get in touch when your photos are ready so that you can come back and check them out!

Another day, another beautiful baby. Meet Elsie, just six days old.

I’m telling you what, the key to this newborn photography is to “get them early”. Third newborn in a row that was a week old or less, and once again just a breeze.

Certainly can’t say the same for most babies that we see at 2-4 weeks. Ugh. Anyway back to Elsie. She was a doll, and a joy to work with. Just one brief snack break, and she was ready to go again.

Mom and Dad also did their maternity photos with us (thank you), and the newborn photos look like they turned out great as well. Thanks again, guys!

Tonight I met with Will and Heather at the Hotel Del Coronado to do some beach portraits.

We did some of my favorite locations, along the concrete wall, with the rocks, walking on the wet sand, etc.

But then we did a first – some photos at one of the nearby lifeguard towers. Loved doing these, I’ve been wanting to try this for awhile (just had to wait for the right victims….har har har).

Here’s one with a more serious tone. Will is in the Marines and leaving soon for Iraq. I thought this image sort of showed their love for eachother, and their feelings as he is about to leave to serve his country. Not that he’s going over there on a cruise ship, but it being in the background didn’t hurt. 😉

This morning we had the privilege of photographing a Mommy-to-be along with Daddy-to-be and their two year old Son. Mommy & Daddy are having a “surprise” baby (boy?? girl??) some time in June (we like surprises, our Son Gavin was a surprise).

The little guy was a bit fussy, but we still got some great photos of him (ssssssh, don’t tell him, it will be our little secret).

Several great shots of Mommy, Mommy and the Little Guy, Mommy & Daddy, and the whole family.
