Emmaline’s Cake Smash | Craig Park, Brea

Sweet Emmaline….you are now 1 year old. How time flies. I remember shooting sweet Emmaline shortly before Christmas at the Fullerton Arboretum at CSU Fullerton when she was just several months old! What a tiny thing she was….and even before that when she was in Christina’s tummy! You can view the Elmore’s maternity session here, and their Christmas holiday session here.

Emmaline’s mama, Christina, and papa, Chris, did such a fabulous job planning and decorating for the entire party! We were able to use the cake from the birthday party for the cake smash portrait the next day! Christina also brought along the sweet pink baby piano that Emmaline’s relative gave to her and tutus that her friend had made. I seriously enjoyed the portrait session! I think it’s more relaxing for both the birthday girl and the parents to do a separate shoot the next day! So…call me when your child turns one! I’ll be there to capture your child’s cake smash!

Seattle 2013 | Part 3

Happy Mother’s Day to all the fabulous and beautiful mothers out there! Thank you for raising us to be the wonderful, successful individuals that we are! XO

A las here is the conclusion to my Seattle 2013 three part series (see part 1 and part 2). I saved the best for last! During my stay in Seattle, I stayed at the Edgewater Hotel in downtown Seattle. The Edgewater is located right on the water! It’s such a romantic and amazing location. Although the decor is a bit outdated, I felt that it gave a very cozy and comfortable feeling. In fact, all I wanted to do was stay in my suite the entire day enjoying my waterfront view, the cozy fireplace, and the claw foot tub! 😛 Falling asleep to the sound of the water and waking up to the crisp, cool Puget Sound air was an incredible feeling.

This is the view from my waterfront suite! Eek!!! Isn’t it glorious?

Here are some interior shots of the suite.

Of course, I couldn’t lock myself away in the suite the entire trip! Off to explore more of Seattle.

My last day in Seattle I had to see the mountains and the snow. The drive up was magnificent. Truly breathtaking.

One day I hope to return and be able to enjoy the snow. Perhaps snowboard or build a snow man. 😛
