every once in a while…

I can’t remember the last time I blogged twice in one day.  If I ever have at all.  (I don’t think that’s a sentence)  I digress.  Just finished a great little session with my six month old little friend, and while quickly going back through the session, I was stopped in my tracks.  Every once in a while, I am just stopped in my tracks.  Cameron was so cute today and tolerated so much so well.  I know his Mommy is going to be more proud of him every single day.  They both seem to sparkle  around each other.  But Dad has his own charms too.  My sincere gratitude  for such a great session.

I think you all pretty much rocked it.

Thank you Cherry!

My second superhero session.  These just get better each time (I know-I have only done two).  Just sayin’.

Meet Avery.  She chose her costume and her two “besties” to help her combat evil doers and bring peace and harmony to our little planet.

She simply shines.









My personal favorite.   









Thank you to my new little friend for taking time out of her day to play along.  She is an awesome superhero.  I know the future is in good hands….

Still on the hunt for a few more superheroes if you happen to have one who is waiting to be discovered.  This session is free being it is my personal project.  (will provide a free 8×10-sorry, no digital files)

Very cute and original photos! I do have 2 little superheros… Lizzie (age 5 1/2) and Jacob (turning 3 next week). Are you in S. CA? We live in SJ but will be in Anaheim and Aliso Viejo next week to go to Disneyland for Jacob’s 3rd birthday and to visit my best friend, Tatiana Oberon. Could probably squeeze in a photo shoot if you are in that area. If it works out I’d love an 8×10 superhero photo of my kids! : )

sidewalk superhero strikes again…

I’m getting way ahead of myself blogging a preview of this session.  Just couldn’t help myself.  More to come very soon…..


Have a great weekend!!

Love it lady! can’t wait to see the rest. have a fab weekend! :)

oh, and she wore the batgirl costume the rest of the day; even to play soccer at the park with her sissy. lol

That is AWESOME!! I love that she kept it on. Why not? I think it’s about the only time in one’s life where dressing like a superhero is not only accepted, but kind of adored.
It is by me anyway. You are going to love them all. She is perfectly sweet as can be.

Thank you for your hospitality and lovely people, your amazing lands and beautiful beaches, your happy, lazy, grazing animals.  We had such an amazing adventure.

I just loved that down under place. Can’t wait to see your pics and share your perceptions of this of this tucked away place. Sis K

winter is due to arrive…

We are so spoiled in California.  The mildest of winters anywhere I would guess. Some rain here and there but certainly nothing that ever would qualify as “STORM WATCH”.  If you live here, and see the weather others endure, I am sure you would agree.  This weekend we are on the map for  a change of weather.  Change is good.  Can be exciting.  Wear galoshes…or some cool hunter boots.  It will be perfect for those and you will be “splashing”.  Are you ready?
