outdoor newborn in white with kissy lips

I just returned from a quick trip out to San Luis Obispo, CA to photograph the baby girl of the always amazing photographer Lisa Maksoudian.

Saying I had fun, would be quite the understatement. And although it was cloudy and rainy, that couldn’t keep us from attempting a few poses outside. (Seriously, I would kill for just one of her locations – every single corner around her house has flowers, fences, and potential!)

Lisa made me feel right at home as did my roomie, another amazing photographer, Jen Wilson. You see….Jen and I bonded over several things – sonic, diet dr peppers, and our love to rescue strays (yes, we had a “vacation dog” with us for one night before she found the owner an hour away).

I’m already itching to get back out there, so if you are in California and would like a family or baby session on my next visit, contact me soon!
