Newborn Cora

And the follow-up to this photoshoot, is Cora! She was a full-blown, air-breathing human this time, plus all kinds of adorable!

With the growing numbers in this family, they are moving to a bigger house this week, which is why they really wanted to simply hang out at home for this photo session. This lil' beach house has been good to them; it's welcomed both their girls into the world and kept them safe and warm. It's exciting to move on to the next thing but I imagine it's also an emotional thing to leave your family's first home (even if the bedroom is only three inches bigger than the bed :)).

But, big house or little house, it's clear that wherever little Miss Cora lives, she will be well-loved!

Terasa and her Min Pin, Mr. Handsome

His real name is Hansel, but you can see why he goes by Mr. Handsome! (If I was that good-looking, I would insist on going by the same).

Years ago, I photographed Terasa with her old dog Shaq, and obviously bonded with her since my dog growing up was Magic (both Lakers fans). So now that Hansel is the new boss in town, she had to get some photos of him as well.

These two love to be together! On the couch watching a game, in the car running errands, or at the park going for a walk- whatever the activity is, they do it together. I loved photographing these guys because they just reminded me how much joy can come from such a bond.

Baby Emmerson

He was a little less slimy for this photo shoot than he was for his debut shoot six months ago, but either way, from birth to babe, this little guy is fantastic!

Rebecca actually called me in a panic a few weeks ago because her baby started growing teeth at lightening speeds, and she was paranoid she had missed capturing baby Emmerson. He was threatening to do some long division when I got there, but luckily I think we still got some documentation of him as a wee one. And also of him flying.

Kali, Kelly, Veda and belly

This family-- they live on the same street as us, Kali and I are both photographers, husbands both obsess over fast cars, and our daughters go to the same co-op preschool. But the similarities stop there and just turn into jealousy because, as you can see, Kali has WAY better hair than me, and they grow blueberries in their backyard that actually grow, and they go camping like every weekend (I have this dream about being a total "camping family" but in actuality, we've been like three times).

But jealousy aside, I very much like these guys! They are getting ready to have another little girl next month so we had to get some pictures of life as they currently know it- Legos, donuts, and trips in the camping van.

(By the way, there's nothing like photographing another photographer to make me even more hyper aware of the pathetic state of my website/blog than I already was. But alas here I go, sheepishly sharing on my like 2005 blogger site!)
