Looking for pine cones on the trail


Trail (5 of 10)

Back in October when the leaves started coming off the trees and there were pine cones everywhere, I took Slaiden and his bear to the trail close to our house and let him run around free and enjoy the nature. I remember that back when I was little I loved playing with all the leaves and the other things I found on the ground outside. Of course I was a little older than him from what I remember, but knowing how active he is I knew it would be the perfect activity.  Continue reading

Baby sprinkle


Sprinkle (1 of 10)

In less than a month, Slaiden is going to have a little brother and we couldn’t be more excited! I’m really looking forward to learning everything about newborns and to be a part of this little guy’s life since the very beginning. Continue reading

Long eyelashes & freckles


Bath (2 of 4)

Slaiden loves the water. He probably asks me if he can go take a bath about 5 times a day and when he’s in it’s hard to get him out of the water. Since our bathroom is a pretty clear space with white backgrounds and I don’t really have anything to do but to watch him while he’s playing in the water, I decided to take some cute head shots of him being a busy bee in the tub.  Continue reading

MB walk (2 of 17)

It has been cooling down a little bit in California the last couple of weeks, which is great. We even had some rain this week! With the heatwave that had been going on for weeks, I was happy that I could finally take a long walk without getting dehydrated.  Continue reading

He’s almost a big brother


Maternity BW (6 of 10)

I’ve been wanting to do a really cool shoot with Stacy and Slaiden for a while now and this week we finally found the perfect time to do it! We went over to Veterans Park in Redondo Beach and took a couple of quick shots. We forgot to bring quarters for the parking meter so we literally had like 15 minutes to get the shots done. I had all kinds of things in mind for the pictures, so I knew it wouldn’t be a problem to do the shoot in little time.  Continue reading

Yoga with a view


Yoga (1 of 12)

About a month ago, my friend Sae, who I got to know through the Herbalife community, invited me to go down to the beach to do some yoga. I thought it was worth a try, since I had been wanting to get my first real yoga experience for a while now. And let’s be honest… What better setting to have a relaxing yoga session than right on the beach?! Continue reading

Sailing in Redondo Beach


Sail (31 of 31)

Paul’s dutch cousins are in town for a whole month and that means that there are/were lots of really fun activities planned. They went to Vegas for Halloween, the Grand Canyon, Sacramento, Seattle (to watch the Seahawks play) and so on. They also did a lot of things in our little beach town here. They went biking, are planning a fish trip and they went sailing. After they spent the afternoon on the water, Stacy, Slaiden and I went over to the marina and got on the boat to take a little tour on the water. It was amazing! Continue reading
