Last weekend, we teamed up with So Childish in South Park once again for a round of Spring portrait sessions. All of the kids looked adorable as always and it was great to see some of my favorite families and meet a few new ones too. Rumor has it we might be offering Mother’s Day / Father’s Day portraits this year as well. Keep an eye on the blog and Facebook page for more details soon. Until then, here are a few of my favorite photos from last weekend.

I first met the S Family in 2012 when big brother Logan was only a few days old. I was so excited when I learned that they were expecting baby #2, this time a girl, and even more excited when they asked me to photograph Riley during her first few weeks of life as well. I love working with the S Family because they’re all so genuinely kind and you can tell they have a lot of love and respect for each other. And they’re FUN! I love it when families are fun. : ) So, without further ado, I introduce you all to Riley. A sweet little thing who has nothing but amazing things in store for her.
I’m so excited to announce our Spring Glimmer & Shine Fairy Portrait event! Spring is right around the corner (next month already!) and I wanted to do something special to celebrate my favorite season. Fairy portraits will be offered in both San Diego, CA and Austin, TX for one day only.
San Diego, CA: Saturday, March 29
This event is open to all girls between the ages of 18 months and 10 years. Each child will have the opportunity to have her nails painted while enjoying delicious sugar cookies and lemonade at a whimsical location. Afterwards, they will choose from a variety of fairy dresses, wings, and headbands and will have a 20 minute glamour photoshoot. This would be so much fun to do with siblings, cousins, and friends!
Last weekend we held our 5th Annual Have a Heart Charity event in conjunction with So Childish in South Park. This is always one of my favorite events of the year. Cute kids with adorable Valentine decor? You just can’t go wrong with that. All of the proceeds from this year’s event went to Max’s Ring of Fire to help fight childhood cancer. As many of you know, my oldest son was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma when he was 9 months old. I try to give back as much as possible and do what I can to raise awareness and raise much needed funding to help kids that are battling this disease. Our event raised over $2200 this year! Imagine what could happen if 10 people held fundraising events like this, or better yet, 100 people, or 1,000 people! Great things can happen when communities, cities, nations, work together. If you’ve been thinking about raising funds for a cause close to your heart, now is the time to do it. Every little bit helps.
Even pets got in on the action this year!
Leyla, owner of So childish, did an amazing job with the baskets that were raffled off.
Families could have silhouettes made of their kids too! I love these keepsakes.
Erin’s Dream Lanyards were also on hand. If you aren’t familiar with Erin Buenger, please click the link and go read about her now. She was an amazing little girl who lobbied congress to increase funding for pediatric cancer research. She also battled Neuroblastoma for almost half her life.
I’m excited to announce we have added a date of Spring mini-sessions for Saturday, April 12 in the morning. The exact location will be determined once the date gets a little closer, but I do know it will be a field/nature area. Hopefully we’ll get lucky and the bluebonnets will be in full bloom. Keeping my fingers crossed! Click here to go to the sign up page. There are only a few spots available so be sure to book your session soon before they all sell out.
