They are the children of a great friend of mine and I was so pleased to be able to capture them at their best. It was really hard to pick just a few to post here so I decided to post a few extra,

Blonde Bombshell

Boudoir photography has always been a passion of mine. There is really something about making someone feel gorgeous & perfect that is so rewarding. I loved my own Boudoir shoot 3 years ago so I was so excited for this shoot! Of course it helps to have a stunning model!

Without further ado!

Sweet Caroline

Caroline was 5 days old when I photographed her Newborn photos. She was the sweetest little thing. So precious & so awake! We didn't get the sleepy naked images BUT she is so beautiful with big brown eyes, I am glad she was awake!

Tessa's First Birthday (Dol)

I had the honor of photographing Tessa's first birthday or Dolijanci. Dol is a Korean tradition that celebrates the birthday of a one year old baby. This ceremony blesses the child with a prosperous future and has taken on great significance in Korea.

Tessa's mother put together a GORGEOUS event to help celebrate this wonderful tradition.


The highlight of the dol is a ritual where the child is placed in front of a table of foods and objects such as string, books, brushes, ink and money. The child is then urged to pick up an object from the table, where it is believed the one selected will foretell the child's future. For example, if the child picks up a brush or book, he is destined to be a scholar.

For Tessa, she had a spool of thread, a pencil, a blackberry, a hundred dollar bill & Golf Balls placed in front of her. Tessa picked the Blackberry. This represents Business woman or CEO. Her parents were very excited. Tessa loved that Blackberry!


And of course, there were lots of kiddos running around. She had storytime which all of the kids loved. Hats off to Alice for a beautiful party!




We had time, in between the rain clouds, to shoot a few nice family shots outside.
