Lucas Turns 3 | Boy's Birthday Portrait Session

I met Lucas when he was still one, turning two. We took the cutest photos of his curly blonde head, shared them with his mama, and then I did something lame. When I was starting out, I only kept my clients images for a few months. Now I keep them on hard drives fo-eva. So when I went to blog this session, it made me super regret not keeping those baby photos because it would've given an extra set of memories to this post. But I did find their Christmas photos!

Anyway... I digress.

I put both his Christmas card photos and his third birthday photos into this post to show you what a difference six months makes. The thing I love most about my job is being able to see my clients grow, whether it be from wedding to first baby, or from first baby to third, or even a fur baby (I have two of those!). 

Adding some similar outfit links at the bottom of this post. Enjoy!

Here are some cute, affordable toddler boy outfits that are perfect for summer.

Tea Party Sibling Session | Vacaville, California

I love when clients get creative and come up with fun new ideas for their sessions! Melissa sent me an email saying she'd like to have a little tea party setup for her daughter, but this was even cuter than I imagined! We had some fun distractions (ducks were everywhere) which lead to these fun laughs and giggles. I've linked some similar products and outfits below for inspiration:

First Communion Portraits | Vallejo, California

When Bobby's mom asked me to take his First Communion portraits, I was excited because I had never been inside of a Catholic Church (I know, right?!). It was the gorgeous St Basil the Great Roman Catholic Church in Vallejo, which wasn't too far from home. It was a hot day and Bobby was such a trooper in his suit. He totally deserved the ice cream Mom bribed him with!
