I have known Sabrina for years and was thrilled when she asked me to help capture their engagement.  We met over AM beverages, to chat a bit and help settle some nerves.  It was great to catch up and after a few shots in the restaurant, we drove over to Luther Burbank Park.  I was surprised to hear someone so gorgeous say she was feeling anxious for her photos, and I sure didn’t believe her when I started shooting.  They were both SO natural and were adorably generous with their affection toward one another.

If a couple is as comfortable with each other as they are, it doesn’t matter if they’re comfortable in front of a camera; these photos are proof of that.

2nd time moms know what’s up.  Fancy wraps or cute basket shots?  No thanks – “let’s just get a few like he is now.”  Don’t get me wrong, I love a cute basket shot as much as the next gal, but there is something just SO wonderful about capturing newborns (or any child really),  just as they are at that age.  Babe won’t relax in a swaddle without his arm out? Capture it!  Mom has mastered nursing while there is adorable chaos around the room? Shoot it!

Baby Wesley definitely gave us a few of the angelic newborn moments during his mini session,  and I am always excited to grab those shots for my clients, but I am also grateful to work with parents who embraces the chaos.  And those funny or surprisingly sweet moments… those my friends, are the moments to remember!

xoxo Janine
