Baby Scarlett

I had the honor to photograph baby Scarlett's first photo shoot.  At yet a very young age, Scarlett has had her fair amount of ups and downs to say the least.  She was born pre-mature, but with her parents dedication and love and her strong spirit she is here.  

From the moment I met her I knew she was going to make my job easy.  She was nothing but smiles and even smiled for me all the way to the very end of the shoot.  What a trooper!  Scarlett is a joy to be around and I hope I captured some of that in her photos.

Play time!

And I'll conclude this post with my favorite from the shoot
Makes me smile every time I look at it

Geeky fun

The boy put an Enterprise model together.  It was one of those cheap plastic, put stickers on it type of deals.  Doesn't mean it was any easier.
My geek heart soared while watching him put this together.
Then, we took photos.
Spock came along too.

Live long and prosper.

Happy Birthday Finn!

Finn, my nephew-in-law, turned a whopping 2 years old on June 5th.  I can't believe he is only 2 because I kind of can't remember life before him.  We celebrated this special day by going to the delightful Underwood Farms  in Moorpark where you can feed animals, ride a tractor and pick your own crops.  And then there was cake and presents at his Grandpa's afterward.

Finn had so much fun running through these tire tunnels and in turn I had a lot of fun taking photos of him running through them and I am having fun writing this run-on sentence and I hope in turn you are enjoying reading it.

Griffin says, "Hey! Wait for me."

Feeding the animals

Is it just me or does this alpaca look like Michael Jackson?

Splish, splash time with Uncle Trevor

Tractor ride to the crops
We mostly picked strawberries.

The one I picked.  
Was too busy taking photos.

Robynne found a strange strawberry

Not quite ripe

Not a strawberry

Duncan lost a baby tooth on the tractor ride
I asked him how much he thought he could get from the tooth fairy.  He said, "$50 bucks."  
Oh my, times have changed.

Friends of Finn
Griffin is one of the cutest kids. Ever.

Friends of Finn
Michelle has adorable freckles.

There is this cute little cow ride that we didn't end up going on

Kinda glad we didn't.
Look at that dust.  
And those faces!  :D

Cake and present time

We had pound cake to mix and match ice cream and other varies goodies with

The money bunny

Finn finds a hidden gift

One of Finn's coolest gift was made by his Grandpa.  
He made him his very own version of Toontown called Finntown.
Even has a train track with it's very own working Jolly Trolley.
It's a lot more detailed than what I have pictured here.

And, then a monster came and the party ended.
Just kidding.  
This is a friend of Finn named Alex.

Happy birthday Finn!  
I love you.
Hope you had a good one and I look forward to being there to document many more of your important life events.

And thanks to those of you who checked out this picture-filled blog!
