It’s always fun to celebrate someone’s birthday, but I’ve found that the fun is turned up a notch when the birthday coincides with a special date. Reese is a lucky girl to have her birthday on Halloween, as it’s such a festive day!

For her first birthday, she had a circus-themed party filled with circus treats like cotton candy and popcorn and sprinkles on everything. So many people dressed up in such cute outfits. Reese herself had a matching outfit with her mom that involved poofy pink tutus, and looked SO adorable.

It is always a pleasure photographing clients on more than one occasion. When I first photographed Randy and Jamie, it was for their backyard wedding ceremony and reception. Now, over a year later, I get to witness their family grow as they welcome a new addition: Reese.

I took some shots of her bedroom, and I love how it’s decorated! It’s very beach-themed, from the anchor shelf filled with animals and fishes, the pillow with the quote “What happens at the beach, stays at the beach”, and the seafoam color scheme (with splashes of pink accents, of course!). I would love to have had this as my baby room!

We took these photographs while Reese was only a few days old. She was a small baby, so cute and cuddly! Nothing could disturb her from sleeping, and when she did wake up for feeding time, she went back to sleep after a huge adorable yawn. I’m happy to have been her Los Angeles newborn photographer!

Jamie and Randy’s Backyard Wedding

Jamie and Randy had SUCH a chill wedding. One of the reasons for that is because they already got married late last year in Hawaii!- and they wanted to host another wedding in the Montrose area as some of their closest friends and family couldn’t make it the first time around. Even the priest (who wore sandals, btw! :D) commented on how Jamie and Randy were one of the most at-ease and relaxed couple he’s ever united, haha.

The ceremony was held in Holy Redeemer – St. James the Less Catholic church in Montrose. Afterwards, everyone went to Randy’s parents’ house for a laid-back backyard wedding reception. Their reception was filled with colorful paper lanterns, pretty patterned papers, and tacos!

Jamie and Randy, thank you for having me photograph your wedding!
