Happy kid

I know I am biased for being his mom but I think he has the most amazing and contagious smile in the whole wide world!

There they are, little partners in crime. Dexter is already too big to ride Lola, but he has been persistent and they’ve found a very agreeable scenario: Lola gets endless hugs & cuddles, and of course a treat or two.

Who could forget their first pet?  I still have a very special place in my heart for my very first dog, who was added to my family when I was only a year old, he was a black lab just as gorgeous as Lola.

We are beyond happy to have her as part of our family.  As hard as it is to believe, we adopted Lola from GEPDA, an organization dedicated to rescuing abandoned pets. Lola, like many other pets, was surrendered by her formal family because she was too protective of their little one and “they didn’t have time to deal with her barking”….Lola was just one day away from being euthanized when the great folks at GEPDA got her, two weeks later we adopted her.  At first she was skittish, submissive, afraid of men, or any sudden movements.  Now she is part of our family, troubling us just like a second toddler would at home, but just as loved as any member of our family.  The grin on the dog’s face tells how far she’s come out of her shell and isn’t afraid anymore to be herself, no one here will hurt her or surrender her just because she loves our family!

We are so grateful to have found her and hope that many other animals find their way to good families, they are an amazing companion for a little kid!!!

Sometimes words are just not enough…This magical spot introduced to me by this beautiful pregnant mama had the perfect lighting to describe the great love to come.

This is the reason for which you want your baby to be as young as possible for his/her newborn photo. They sleep more, are a lot more mellow, and have flawless skin…This newborn session consisted of approximately 10 different successful poses and outfits….The session was very relaxing for all parties, and the baby slept through most of it.

These are no ordinary portraits. From the moment I met them I knew that they would have some of the most original belly and newborn images. The baby just a few days old takes a nap on his mom’s motorcycle.

While most people prefer to have their portrait taken on the beautiful Santa Cruz and bay area beaches, this beautiful mom requested the redwoods. Luckily, I have access to a spot that has the best of both worlds. This very unique location is up the Santa Cruz hills with the redwoods and the view of the Bay on the background.
