"Vulnerability is the birthplace for innovation, creativity and change." -Brene Brown

With a little persuasion, from my husband I decided to venture out of my normal photographing routine and photograph something for myself... I'd been wanting to do more one on one photography ,  it was actually more like, (1 model + 2 photographers) my sweet husband came along to protect us from snakes and wild animals he managed to snap a few pictures too.  The entire process from start to finish was more than I could have asked for.  Jessica was amazing and she is just drop dead gorgeous. She is one of the sweetest souls I've ever met, and can't wait to shoot with her again.

I felt such a refreshing creative pulse run through me during our session and with each images I retouched.  I have several favorites ( insert big smile here) & hope you love them too, Here is the the end result... enjoy!!!

January + the beach + one cute baby bump = 1 adorable session

This was, seriously one of the funnest sessions I've ever had!!! Jaimie and I must have picked the one of the coldest and gloomiest days in San Diego for a beach session... Figures!!!  Because of the timing of everything we had to make it work.... and we did, we got soaked, we laughed so hard and we froze our butts off but, it was all worth it!!!!   We got some amazing pictures.  I loved being able to capture some of these precious moments for her. Nothing compares to the anticipation and excitement of expecting your first born child!  I'm so excited for Jaimie and Brad and can't wait to meet and photograph their first son Austin.   Here are just a few of my favorites from that day.

I'm loving this last shot oh so much...
