Martin Family

March 16, 2011

Fabulous family alert!  Check out the Martin family photos in the Bakersfield almond blossoms that we took last week!  We had a great time and I enjoyed getting to work with them.  They’re all so sweet and it was fun seeing everyone’s personalities combine into a fun family unit.  I’ve known Dana for a while now, have taken Jordyn’s senior photos, and met Allie a few days before Jarret proposed!  It was great seeing the entire family together, work with some fun props (baseballs!) and even have an opportunity to take some photos if the youngest, Jaisyn to update their wall of photos.  This session was a gift that Jarret & Allie got Dana for her Christmas present!   Also, if you’ve ever read a  Bakersfield Life magazine, you’ve seen some of Dana’s fabulous articles that I sometimes get the opportunity to take photos for! 

Thanks everyone for a great session, for being patient with me and the sun changes and good luck this year Jarret with your season and enjoy your engagement to a spectacular woman!!

**Sidenote, I’m still in Texas all this week!  Our weekend in Louisiana for engagement photos for Maureen and Alan went amazing!  The Rip Van Winkle gardens on Jefferson Island made for a stunning backdrop along with another session with Houston’s skyline at sunset as our backdrop!  Stay tuned for those on Monday along with a Louisiana photo re-cap of my trip on the Freyday blog!  I am trying to respond to emails now that I have full access to a computer, so please continue to be patient with me!  Thanks so much!!

Ildiko and John – A Lifestyle/Family shoot

Lifestyle Portraits in Bakersfield

I had the pleasure of meeting Ildiko and John at a wedding earlier this year…and we booked a lifestyle portrait session before they left to go back home to Wyoming.  I’ve been looking forward to seeing them again for this shoot for a while and was excited that the rain held off last week to give us beautiful light and a nice wind tunnel!  John & Ildiko vacationed at The Padre Hotel which was such a great location for portraits!  We hung out, captured Ildiko’s natural stunning beauty and had a ton of laughs with her and John together!  My ‘lifestyle’ portraits are all about celebrating life and enjoying one another….and capturing that to treasure forever!  Ildiko and John…thank you so much for coming back to Bakersfield and trusting me to capture some wonderful photos of you!  I had a blast helping you style outfits, laughing at key phrases, and checking out the hotel with you!  Safe travels and enjoy a few of my favorites:

Austin Family Photos – Ashley Family

Austin Family Photos – Ashley Family

I love the Ashley’s!  And I was so excited that my aunt wanted to use the time while we were all together in Austin, TX to get dressed up and get some photos taken of their growing family…especially since Patrick, my cousin Aubree’s husband is like mine and rarely able to make family functions due to the military!  So, we got up, I picked everyone’s outfits out, grabbed the dogs and headed back to my new favorite spot in Austin!  Love you guys….

A Beloved Session – Aubree & Patrick – Austin Wedding Photographer

January 26, 2011

Patrick & Aubree: A Beloved photo session

“A beloved portrait session is not just a photo shoot, it’s a celebration of love and genuine communication.  As beloved photographers, we want to make honest images that move people, that document these small moments that you cherish but perhaps sometimes forget.  These images serve as a doorway to bring two people back to the beginning of their journey together.  We invite couples to share a piece of themselves and capture valuable moments through the art of photography.” – The Beloved Movement

Aubree and Patrick are so dear to me.  She’s practically my sister, I was the Matron of Honor at their wedding 2 1/2 years ago.  Currently we live on opposite ends of the country and see each other about once a year if we’re lucky to visit home (Austin) at the same time.  Her husband is also in the military and these two love birds are often seperated from one another.  I took this opportunity to have them together in our home town to do a “Beloved” sessionwith me to showcase their love for one another and freeze this moment in their marriage to cherish and gaze at whenever the military takes them apart.  Having lived and gone to school in Dripping Springs, I’ve always driven past this awesome old train car off 290 and thought it would be a perfect location for some really fun texture.  Add to that I got to pick out their wardrobe: we went with a brown & turquoise color scheme  and it made for an organized fabulous session!  I love you guys, thanks again for a great morning!

Josh de Rox is a photographer that captured my attention at 2010 WPPI convention and I learned about the idea of a “Beloved” session after the wedding, for couples, anytime.  ”The concept was to explore photography as a means to celebrate and renew relationship, the emphasis being to create the ideal environment for the couple to experience each other. Instead of taking images of people and trying to make them look happy or in love, he focused on inviting them to a place where they were feeling incredible joy and deep love,  acutely aware of their connection with one another, and then capturing those powerful, genuine expressions.”

1 year old photos! Bakersfield Photographer

September 17, 2010

Happy Birthday Elle!!!!  This sweet girl is walking, smiling and is such a joyful little girl.  I had the pleasure of meeting her parents when she was in the womb for maternity photos!  Since then, I’ve gotten to know the Adams family and feel so honored to be able to photograph their growing family…newborn photos, Christmas photos, and now her 1 year old pictures!  We had a blast at the park, and what kid doesn’t love balloons!  Happy Birthday, enjoy your party Elle and keep squeeking!  <3 Tita Jessica
