South County Teen Center

The last three years, I have called Aliso Viejo home. I love living here, this city has so many wonderful things to offer. Soka University with its jazz nights, incredible grounds that look like you're in Tuscany, the Renaissance Clubsport Hotel with fabulous variety of classes, like Yoga tone, Brazilian Boot Camp, etc. they even have a spa for pampering me and a great restaurant and it is a hotel, too! We have a gorgeous Country Club that is opened to the public for golfing and other amenities. We are going to have a Performing Art Center. I'm a member of the Aliso Viejo Chamber of Commerce. I get to meet so many incredible people in my community and one guy that stands out is Doug Healy who decided that our teens needed a place to hang out. South County Teen Center provides a variety of supportive programs, including before and after school activities, that help young teens develop strength of character a sense of community, and build a voice. This Monday, March 30th will be their first Annual Golf Classic at the Aliso Viejo Golf course. I'm proud to be apart of this special event providing the photography.

Nostalgic Portraits of Children

This lovely photo shoot is the start of my new look for my children photography. Soft and sweet images of little nostalgic images reminiscent of days gone by, fairies and angels, little athletes and sports heroes, cowboys and pilots. Children love to immerse themselves into the magical experiences of dress up and parents love the amazing portraits created. Please schedule early because these sessions are booking quickly.

Lots of my Mothers are having their babies so I'm busy photographing newborns. It is such a pleasure after photographing the pregnancy to come back and see the baby. Lots of baby boys. In the last two weeks, I have photographed three baby boys!! This is baby Ethan. I had photographed his Mom and Dad back in January (See blog entry....January 7, 2009). I'm in the middle of post-production from that shoot. I just love this image of Ethan and his Mother so much. It is so sweet and tender. I have so many more post production to work on plus two shoots this weekend. Lots of juggling. Will try to blog more soon.

Baby Natalie

I may have posted this news in one of my blogs that my photography was going to be featured @ Beach Cities Midwifery/Women' Health Center opening up in Laguna Hills in January. They did open up and they have seven of my images on their walls. Plus they have been giving out my packages to expectant Moms.

The first baby was born at the new center on January 31st, a baby girl, Natalie. This past Friday, I had the pleasure of photographing this adorable baby at her home.

I had gotten a tag printed up many months ago with “Special Delivery” on it. Last month, I found the perfect basket to use with it. My vision finally came together. That is a good feeling.

I also put Natalie in a bowl. She will never be this small again. Natalie was a real trooper letting me put her in a basket and a bowl!! She is on my Baby Plan, my next shoot with Natalie will be during her seventh month.



Last night, I went to Twitter 101 class to learn how to use this social networking that is the in thing. It is almost 5:00 in the morning and I just signed up on Twitter. Twitter is life in real time. You can follow people and see what they're up to at any given moment. You can have people following you, too! I already have a follower!!! I am following some of my friends and a photographer that I admire. I just added Twitter on my Blog so you can follow me in real time!!
