Chula Vista Newborn Session - Jackie Martinez


Newborn sessions are quiet and sweet. They are gentle and delicate, and they are precious. I can't even accurately describe the delicious pleasure of being one of the first people to get to handle these little people. 

This is little bit of heaven is Christian, and he arrived just a week ago. He is the perfect combo of his sweet beautiful mommy, and tenacious playful daddy.  I think my favorite part of meeting a new human being is getting to figure out their personality, even at a week old. His mom Jackie, although tired (which you can't see in any of these images) could not be more thrilled. 

His darling nursery was a woodland/adventure theme, and his nickname fits so perfectly with his new space. "Little bear" was such a dream during this session. Over the course of yesterday morning we got to know each other, and I honestly can't wait to get to play with this bundle as he grows.

Jackie and Cesar, you did so well! I know bringing home a baby for the first time seems so scary and overwhelming but you are doing it and thriving. I hope you love these teasers and get to savor this fleeting moment a little longer because of them. 





Knox's San Elijo Lagoon Birthday Session

This kid!! Ugh he has my heart. This is Knox, and he is almost (I mean this is just crazy) 2 years old! I have taken his pictures since he was just a wee babe and he did an amazing job during his shoot yesterday. It rained and it was cold and he was a champion duck hunter. Every duck out there in the San Elijo Lagoon was observed and pointed at. He even tried to give them flowers (you can see this in the pictures below). 

He ran his little heart out and had such a fun time! ANNDDD he's going to be a big brother soon. I can't wait to meet this newest edition to the family. Thank you Jodi and Christian for letting me follow this little ones journey and be the one who gets to help document his growth. 



Stella's Dougher Lifestyle Newborn Session in Tierrasanta

How sweet is Stella and her tiny fluffy tutu? She honestly was such sweet girl and even though she tested our patience by staying awake for 2 1/2 hours she didn't cry or scream.  Mom  (Sheena) was a champ and finally got her down and we got the most darling pictures with her and Big Brother JD. 

I am so lucky and blessed to have been able to be apart of the Dougher's family journey and I am so excited to continue that through the years. Documenting Newborns is so special and sweet, and I truly enjoy the honor of being one of the first people your baby gets to meet. 

I am one blessed lady!
