Sneak Preview.Happy Mother's Day Shelley and Jen.

In honor of Mother's Day, I decided to stay up and do a couple of quick edits from today's shoots for two special mommies (and daddies).

I met up with Shelley and Steve Smith and their adorable son Timmy this morning at Yorba Regional Park. Shelley is one of my friend Rebekah's longtime friends, so I guess I need to thank Beks for the referral to this adorable family! Down the road, I'll post more pics from today, but I just loved the feel of this darling photo!!! Timmy is ALL BOY and he loved playing with his baseball and bat, so we had to do some shots at the ball field. I think he would have been happy to run around there all day long!



I also met up with Eric, Jen, and Ella down at Crystal Cove. The Scholte's like the pics that I took of the Seaton family, so we headed down to the same location and went for it. Ella is getting so big and it's been fun to watch her progress through Jen's blog!!! I can remember a day when she was little more than a twinkle in her mommy's eye...Jen's a friend of my friend Kristen; a few of us single gals would attend Mariners together...then Jen brought along a "special guest star" one week...and they were married about five minutes later. HA! Actually, the thing I love MOST about Jen and Eric is their spontaneity and sense of adventure...especially in light of the fact that they took on my dare to go to a nude beach on their honeymoon and completed it...with proof! I think this pic of Ella might be one of my all time favorites...I love the lines, the composition, and the sly smile on little Ella's face!

OOO i love when parents doll up their babies and i bet the babies will hate them for this when they will grow up and see their baby albums:D Yet, the artistic way you just snapped them in these pics will make things better for sure! You have a great talent!

Happy Monday!

I love these images! You might just have to become a child photographer you know...at least you won't have to deal with group shots!
