Seniors Rock! Class of 2011

Five girls...five moms...two assistant...equals an awesome afternoon! Margaret contacted us about six months ago to inquire about senior portraits for her daughter, Hannah. At the time, we were toying with the idea of launching a senior portrait package that would involve groups of friends. Margaret and Hannah were excited about the idea and began recruiting friends. We had no idea we would end up with five in one afternoon!

All the girls play soccer together on various teams and they all attend high school in Ventura. Hannah will be attending Cal State Channel Islands to study nursing. Taylor is off to Hawaii to study environmental science. Merissa is looking into criminal justice and possibly law enforcement. Riley is headed to North Carolina on a scholarship and Kelley will be joining Taylor in Hawaii to study nursing. These gorgeous and bright young women have their whole lives ahead of them, full of opportunity and experiences they can only dream about now...

Five friends headed down five different roads in life...we wish you all the best life has to offer! Congratulations, good luck, and HAVE FUN!!!

A Little Slugger Named Roc... ~ Fountain Valley

One of our dearest clients, Megan, referred her brother and his family to us for a Beautiful Baby session. We love when our clients do that! Missy and Jeff welcomed their second baby boy in March. His name is Roc. How cool is that?!? His big brother, Cade, was into Rocky movies and boxing the whole time Missy was pregnant. And since they couldn't agree on a name for the baby, they started calling him Rocky. Cade is pretty proud that he got to name his little brother!

Even their super cute dog, Leo got in on the action! He was determined to get in every shot. It was pretty funny!

When Missy and I talked about their session, she asked if her niece could have a few photos taken with her two cousins as a Mother's Day gift for grandma. I'm so glad she asked...Isla was such a little doll! And Cade was such a great big brother and cousin! Cade plays baseball, just like his Daddy. He told us how he plays for the White Sox. And on Saturday, they were playing against the Phillies. He was so excited about this game because the last two against the Phillies were rained out. So, when Missy took Roc in to feed him, we took Cade and Jeff outside to warm up before the big game. We hope you had a great game Cade!

And for a few photos of course!

Congratulations to Missy, Jeff, and Cade! Roc is such a little bundle of cuteness! We really enjoyed hanging out with all of you and look forward to doing it again...
