The latest from: pregnancy

Levi & Emily

In May of 2010, I had the honor of capturing the beginning of Levi and Emily's life together --- their wedding day. So I was overjoyed to hear that they are expecting a beautiful baby girl (who is due the day after MY birthday!).... and that they wanted me to capture this precious time in their life. They are so freakin' precious, I can hardly stand it. I have a feeling this isn't the last time you'll be seeing their beautiful faces on this blog :)

Kelsey Rae

Oh, where to begin.... Allow me to introduce you to my cousin Kelsey. She married her husband Chase 3 weeks before Josiah and I got married. This is them. Whenever I talk about "my cousin Kelsey" I always have to explain that she's not "just my cousin... she's more like a sister." Because "cousin" just doesn't quite cut it. We've grown up together. We've played make believe together... whether it was orphans running away from an evil headmistress or underpaid waitresses serving blocks as cheeseburgers. We fell in love together (... separately, of course). We planned our weddings together. We learned "marriage" together. And now she's breaking off from the "together"ness to have a baby girl. I only WISH we were doing this together. Hopefully someday I'll catch up with her and we can learn "parenting" together. Last Summer, my darling sister moved across the country to Maryland where Chase was accepted into the Navy's prestigious medical school. This is the farthest and longest we've ever been apart. This last week she flew home for her baby shower (stay tuned for pictures of that awesome party), and I was blessed with the opportunity to capture this precious time in her life. In a few months, I'll be capturing the new and beautiful life of Ella Nadine Hughes. But for now, I'll just photograph this darling baby girl while she's still warm and curled up inside her mommy. Enjoy.

Jason + Danielle

Jason and Danielle are having a babyyyyyyyyyy!
A baby girl, to be precise. A baby girl named Gianna, to be precise-er. 
So we got to roam all over the Tanaka Farms pumpkin patch in Irvine for this shoot... and despite the warm temperatures, we had a grand ol' time :)
