I always love getting my clients pictures featured on the interwebs, but this one in particular I’m super psyched about. Mostly because Teddy’s mom did this party all by herself! It’s really incredible actually. Annie went all out and made a perfect nautical themed party for her beautiful son Teddy. If you’re planning a nautical themed party, head straight down to the end of this post to see all the great links Annie provided for the vendors she used to help make this party the bomb. Although Teddy might not remember all the incredible details, the hand crafted snacks and food, or the amazing kids band, but we can all sure appreciate the effort Annie put into this party. And this is why I love getting my client’s featured on blog, if their kids can’t be the ones to say, “Thank you, you did such an incredible job on my party” then at least fans of the party from across the globe can:-)

Teddy’s party is featured on the front page of The Little Umbrella (formerly onto baby)

I’ve known Justin and Graciela since High School! It’s so wonderful to see their family growing as I continue to photograph them. I did a family shoot with them the last time Nina just started walking! It was fun to catch up with them and see how much their girls have grown. They have just such a photogenic family! I loved capturing the girls’ spirit and exploring around the reservoir looking for great light. Some of my favorite family photos ever are from this session. Thanks Justin and Graciela for producing such sweet, beautiful girls, it was a pleasure to photograph you guys! xo


I always love getting featured, but getting featured on 100 Layer Cakelet makes me particularly giddy. Hilary did an absolutely amazing job with this party and she deserves to get some serious shout outs for it, so glad this party has been featured today! For the full featured, click HERE
