I’m sure this family can’t think of a better Christmas present than their sweet lil guy Noel. He is just too gosh darn cute, I could ramble on and on… We had ourselves a little staring contest too at one point, but I guess I just bored him enough to go back to sleep for me.:-)

While uploading these images from Evan’s newborn session, I have to giggle to myself because before I met his mama, she mentioned that she was really worried that he absolutely HATES to be naked. This big guy had no trouble at all hanging around in the buff for me, however! These babies’ modesty goes right out the window when I show up.;-)

Every year as fall begins I get that dreaded feeling in anticipation of those impending mini sessions. I drag my feet and I hem and haw and then finally announce them and wait for them with equal parts fear and terror (wait, aren’t those the same thing?).

And really, it’s not that I don’t enjoy them. In fact, as soon as they were all wrapped up I thought to myself “I need to do these more often, that was fun!” It’s just that I live in a constant state of panic that no one will be on time. That everyone will get lost. That somehow a convention of 12,000 pirates will descend upon my chosen location and photobomb ALL of my sessions. Or worst of all – it could RAIN.

 

Yeah none of those things happened, so I’d call this years’ minis a success.:-)

I love this little family so much – I’ve been blessed to have photographed Oliver since before his parents even knew he was a he (their pregnancy announcement session was one of my firsts when I started my business back in 2011!). We met at a local park here in Thousand Oaks to grab some family pictures and Oliver is such a boy through and through (we did a LOT of running around and ball throwing). I’m so excited to watch him grow, it’s just one of the fun perks of what I get to do! Fall is one of my very favorite times of year for sessions because there’s just something about that sunlight this time of year… it’s like it’s especially golden for me.:-)
