Harper | Las Vegas Newborn Photographer

Monday, November 28th, 2011

This little one was a DREAM to photograph!  She was a week old and still super sleepy.  She let us totally mess with her with barely a fuss.  Not to mention the fact that she is GORGEOUS!  Look at all that hair!  My 21 month old is very jealous!  :P

Thanks to my friend Carrie Terrones for letting me tag along and shoot.  :)

I was so excited to photograph a baby girl so I could use this adorable pink hat that I bought for my little girl’s newborn photos.  I love it!

10 on 10 | November 2011 | Las Vegas Family Photographer

Thursday, November 10th, 2011

Back in August, I started a new project with a bunch of other photographers called the 10 on 10 project. The goal is to take 10 photos, about one every hour, in one day, to document a day in your life. It’s so important to create memories for your own family. I mean, isn’t that how most photographers start out? Wanting to document a story?  Here’s ours…

Heading downstairs for breakfast.

Drawing on her IKEA easel.

Story time at the library.  Aren’t these boots adorable?  Gotta love Old Navy.

We hit up Target at least once a week.  This week’s trip included a little treat.  Have you seen these????  I was super excited but they’re just okay.  I prefer mint.  They need to start making mint M&Ms year round!

Lunch time.  This is what happens when you live in Vegas.  You don’t get a kids menu with crayons.  You get a keno sheet.  At least she’ll learn her numbers.  :P

Before naps she insists we “find Elmo!”  Then we pop in a video and she’s good to go.  We gave up on napping her in her crib because she’d wake up screaming after 15 minutes and never go back to sleep.  Now that we put her in the pack n play with a video she’ll nap up to 3 hours!  Miracles do happen.

Playing with daddy before dinner.

Grapes for dessert.  No, they are not olives.  I swear.

The little princess in her Disney Princess bath towel.  I love that thing.  But daddy thinks she looks more like Jafar.

And a little “me time” before bed.

Disclaimer: This project is HARD now that the days are so short!  But thanks for looking!  Now head on over to San Francisco Bay Area Photographer Jayme Franklin‘s blog and check out her 10 on 10.

 

Cruisin’

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

We have been traveling a ton the last few months.  Earlier this month we spent some time in Florida with family and friends and did a 7 day Eastern Caribbean cruise.  I wanted to share just a few photos from our trip.  The cruise stopped in Nassau, St. Thomas and San Juan.  All three were beautiful to photograph!  The week before we set sail the weather forecast showed rain for almost the entire 7 days of the cruise but we got lucky and it cleared up.  It was HOT and HUMID, but we had a great time.  :)

We took an excursion to Atlantis in Nassau.  I totally want to go back and stay here just so we can hang out at the water park!

 

St. Thomas was gorgeous!  Look at that water!  Amazing.

 

Finally, San Juan.  This was taken at the Fort San Cristobal.  It was so beautiful.  Wish we’d had more time to explore.


Old San Juan is filled with cute, colorful old buildings and brick and cobblestone streets.  It was so fun to walk around and explore – it’s a photographer’s paradise.  :)
