Top Secret Photographer

As a mom, one of my most favorite things is constantly being able to capture photos of our growing family. Recently, a friend of mine invested in a camera of her own and decided to take a stab at the photography world. She approached me and asked me to be one of her test subjects, of course I just couldn’t say no. We started with a mom and me session of just Khloe and I.. After seeing some of the very first edits I was hooked! She has such an eye for this kinda thing and I just knew we had to do some family photos. Then, her second shoot of us got even better! Although we always deal with a very cranky baby when it comes to photoshoots, she worked wonderfully with her and we got so many more quality pictures of her than I expected! When working with kids, it is crucial for a photographer to work well with your children (in my opinon) and she did just that.

This woman really is going to go far if she keeps it up and I cannot wait until I can reveal who this secret gem is! When the time is ready I will the second I can! Here are a few pictures from our shoots.. ENJOY!

 

Khloe’s 2nd County Fair

Our Khloe Louise turned two on September 11th and to say I went all out for her birthday would be an understatement. Last year our wedding was just two weeks following her first birthday, and due to all the wedding craziness, I wasn’t able to execute this theme the way I wanted. So last year Khloe’s Farmers Market was a mild birthday and this years was a full blown shindig. I told myself that I would never do a birthday on this scale again, but ask me again next year.

For Khloe’s County Fair, I wanted it to be the perfect combination of country and girly. We had concession stands, a petting zoo, pony rides, games and prizes! Enjoy these photos as much as I do, as this is one of my favorite events to date. And a huge thank you to TMPhotojunkie for the pics!

Xoxo!

Let’s “Flamingle”

A few weeks ago one of my best friends tied the knot. Being her matron of honor I had to throw her a super rad bachelorette bash! We spent the weekend away from kids and husbands and had an amazing tropical girls weekend at the beach. Here’s a few iPhone pics to show some of my work on a smaller scale. Enjoy 😄

“Country Chic” Bridal Shower

On the road to Mr. & Mrs. Williams, one of my long time closest friends asked me to be her Matron of Honor. Of course, I said yes, and was so excited to take on this journey with the bride to be. Last weekend we celebrated her, and them, at her country chic bridal shower. The venue was PERFECT at The Branch and Vine, in Madera, and set the mood for the perfect day. As this journey is coming to an abrupt end, I wanted to make Charolette feel important and loved, so I took it upon myself to throw her the bridal shower of her dreams. Just a Bachelorette party away from the big day!

Tay’s 21st

I had a super fun time collaborating with two of my favorite ladies, Heidi Roos and Giovana Mello to plan a very fun 21st birthday party for Tay. This Kate Spade inspired party was an elegant black and white affair with a splash of pink and a pinch of gold. It was a beautiful evening and the food at Piazza Del Pane was wonderful. Here are some pictures (taken by myself) of the decor.. Enjoy!

18 Months with TMPhotojunkie

Khloe Louise turned EIGHTEEN months this month and I absolutely cannot believe that I have a 1 and a half year old! She is every bit of her daddy and I merged into one spunky, sassy and crazy little girl who keeps us on our toes ALWAYS! One of my closest friends is on the verge of something wonderful with her photography business. She is my exclusive Themed 2 Perfection event photographer, and of course when she wanted to be the one to take some spring pictures of Khloe, I had to say
yes. Let me just say that Khloe is one of THE hardest little girls to photograph. You can see more of her work at tmphotojunkie.com or on instagram and facebook as TMPhotojunkie. I have 2 events this weekend so stay tuned ❤

A Bohemian Bridal Shower

One of my favorite styles right now is BOHO. Everything from the colors to the fringe and the softness yet boldness is captivating. When my sister-in-law mentioned needing help with her bridal shower, i naturally volunteered myself. I have many ways to improve myself, but this is only the beginning. I very much enjoyed planning this wonderful day, and I cant wait for the wedding!1
