What a great way to start the week! A gorgeous baby and family. I even learned a special  word that worked its way into my heart. Thambi, a phrase in the South Indian Language, to mean “little boy” is what this little boy’s mom kept calling him.  His real name is Max (which I obviously […]

Good Morning! I have an adorable, happy, chubby, four month old to share with you today. Quite a few people “missed” photographing the newborn stage and have asked to do the next best thing. At four months, baby’s personality is starting to come out. They are confident on their bellies and oh so proud. Never […]

Happy Friday! This little munchkin is one that I have been photographing since in utero. It is so fun to watch a family grow. Especially, when they start as a little lump and all of a sudden start climbing rock walls and going down slides by themselves! I love that I can capture these precious […]

I had such a hard time categorizing this post. Can I no longer call Max a newborn? I’m so sad! The last 11 weeks have been amazing. This little delicious angel has brought our family so much happiness. But where did it already go?   Yummy! I think I need to run and give those […]

One of my favorite mom-preneurs to follow is Michelle Steele with Inner Glimmer. For the passed four years I have watched her grow leaps and bounds with her business. To move forward as much as she has, does not just require talent, but a good business sense. After trying out a few studios, she has […]

Time is going way too quickly! My little peanut is 8 weeks old today. Waaaah! wah! Since it’s a bit overcast and cold today, I decided to make it a pajama party day. Of course, I took advantage of our lazy mood and stayed in pjs myself :) Happy 8 weeks Max! James, you’re the […]

I had my first photo shoot after a 7 week maternity leave last week and it was wonderful. Carrie called me up and wanted someone to photograph her one week old. Impossible to resist a new baby, I jumped at the chance. When I got to their house I realized I no longer have a […]

Happy Wednesday! So happy to report Mr. Max slept seven hours last night! Woohoo! That means mama will be back blogging and photographing very soon :) Unless of course, last night was a total fluke! I still have some favorites from week 1 lined up for posting. It’s much harder to weed out the mediocre […]

Hi! I’m back (I think)! Happy Valentine’s Day and Mid February. Can it really be almost Spring? I thought photographing my own baby would be such a breeze. Haha. Very funny. Throw in a 3.5 year old and my dream photo shoot turned into a hot mess. Here’s what I got… Officially, here is Max, […]
