Lexie's a Senior!

Today is the first day of FALL!!!
Which basically means nothing if you live in Southern's still 100 degrees today.
So why not celebrate (or not celebrate?) with a senior session at the beach!
This one was a favorite of we were shooting, Lexie and her Mom and Dad were telling me all about how their family has camped on this beach for years and years...since Lexie was little! They have so many memories there and I thought it was so special that she wanted to have her photos done on that same beach!
And how about that Jeep?! Yes, it's actually her wasn't just a prop!

Gracen & Brendon's Lemonade Stand

Well, Pumpkin Spice Latte's have returned to apparently Fall has arrived! Or at least, Fall is attempting to arrive...this is still Southern California after all. Anyway, in anticipation of Fall-ish weather, I'm so excited to share this last little bit of summer with you!
It's never work when my models are this cute!

Landon's 2nd Birthday Party!

Okay guys...I feel like this post needs a drumroll, please!
In case you don't already know, Dumbo is one of my most favorite Disney characters...and I have been wanting to throw a Dumbo-themed party for as long as I can remember! I almost did one for Colt's (my oldest) 3rd birthday in 2013...but a few months before he turned 3 he fell so completely in love with Cars that it wouldn't have been right not to have a Cars party. So, I saved all my Dumbo love for forward a few years and Landon, boy after my own heart, is obsessed with Dumbo! We've watched the movie so many times we can all quote it...and when we listen to the Dumbo soundtrack in the car, Landon can tell you exactly what part of the movie the music is from. So, it's safe to say that my excitement to share this party with you all is on another level...I think it turned out better than I could have imagined...and most importantly, the birthday boy had a pretty good time too!

This is generally what our family photos look like these days...getting four people to all look at the camera and smile at the same time is rough...

Found these straw pinwheels in the July 4th section of Target...they might be my favorite party detail!

A bucket full of Pink Elephants on Parade!
