This day was a dream come true for me. The family, the wardrobe…the light!
The first birthday of your first child is a BIG deal. Not only is it such a special milestone, you get to celebrate that you actually survived! Little Layne couldn’t have been cuter on her big day. The countless hours of decorating and party prep were so much fun. Thank goodness I was able to capture the details so she might enjoy them in 30 years. Hopefully?
Nadia and Raymond are having a baby! They wanted to keep the little one’s gender as a surprise, so we decided to do neutral colors and minimal details…except for those adorable little ducky slippers. Whether they had a boy or a girl Nadia knew that baby was wearing those booties. What better place to shoot during a beautiful sunset than Strands Beach in Dana Point, California. The best.
There’s nothing like those moments leading up to the ceremony. All of the girls huddled in the room, making sure every detail is in place, and prepping their bestie for her time to shine. I truly LOVE it when I have the opportunity to be a fly on the wall and capture those images. Here are a few of my favorites of Molly and her girls.
