Hi Photography Friends!!

Sorry for my lack of blogging lately! Things have been crazy during this Holiday season and we have been busy with LOTS of wonderful photo sessions during this fun and cozy time of year. Just you wait- we're going to have a whole slew of photo shoots to blog about in 2012! So stayed tuned. For now, here are some sneak peeks from 2 of our shoots last week. Enjoy!

The Fredericks

I had an absolute blast shooting the Fredericks last weekend! We spent a gorgeous afternoon at Point Lobos State Reserve in Carmel and got some equally gorgeous photos to show for it!

This shoot had a lot of different aspects to it. We took maternity photos, family photos, couple photos and some {too-cute-for-words} photos of little Liam.

Chante' is a seriously GORGEOUS mama and we got some awesome field shots with the setting afternoon sun.

The Fredericks are such a beautiful family inside and out {as you can see!} and their love for each other is undeniable. I am so glad I got the chance to capture this wonderful {and growing!} family.

Aaron joined in on the "Belly" Shot :) Hilarious.

Thanks Chante' and Aaron for allowing me to be a part of capturing this time in your lives! Y'all are so great. Can't wait to meet your sweet baby girl when she arrives! :)

It was a clear & sunny day in Santa Cruz as Annabel and I headed out for our photo shoot fun! This sweet little girl is BEYOND gorgeous (as you can see!), so it wasn't too hard to capture the light and life that poured from her bright blue eyes.

For Annabel's shoot we visited a local park and the lookout above Santa Cruz's famous Beach Boardwalk and got some awesome shots of the ocean and roller coasters behind Annabel.

Annabel even proved to be a master of the "serious model" face, too. Try not to die from the cuteness of these photos, okay? :)

Channeling Marilyn Monroe? :)

Thank you to Hobbs and Thomas for letting me take pictures of your beautiful little girl. She is the best!!

Update + Holiday Card Ideas!

Hi Friends & Photography Lovers!

I hope this update finds you well and cozy during this fun Halloween season (or just plain HOT if you are in the Monterey area! We had some seriously gorgeous weather this weekend!). There is nothing I love more than the leaves changing, some pumpkin spice coffee in my hand, and the knowledge that...the Holidays are right around the corner!! Yay!

On that note, it's not too late to book your Christmas/ Holiday/ New Years/ {Whatever Else You Need a Photo For} Shoot with us! We still have some open weekends and would love to fill them with you and your gorgeous family :)
One of my favorite things about the Holiday Season is looking at all the family Christmas cards that arrive in the mail. It is so fun to see how a family (especially of little ones!), grows and changes in just a year. What a blessing! I've discovered a WONDERFUL online stationary store that does professional grade work without the price. It's called Minted.

Click the link above or go directly to http://www.minted.com/ to check out their amazing stuff. I've had some friends use Minted in years past and the cards were absolutely stunning. Go check it out! You can thank me later :)

Finch Photography has lots of shoots + editing underway and should have some more new work up for you soon. Stay tuned! And don't forget to book your Holiday Card Session NOW! And at only $125 a session, it's a Christmas miracle!

Ellen {Maternity}

During the Quay family shoot I took a few maternity photos of Ellen too.
A 2-for-1 shoot, if you will!!

Here are a few more of this gorgeous lady. I mean, how great does she look at 6+ months pregnant?

Also as a side note: during our shoot, sweet Caedmon ended up in the grass and...well...apparently, he is afraid of grass?!? Just look at this. He refused to touch it!

The Quays

Wait til' you see these highlights from the Quay family photo shoot!

There were so many great photos, I almost couldn't whittle it down to just a few to share with y'all. This family is beautiful inside and out, with their striking blue eyes and precious Caedmon's bright red hair, not to mention their sweet and gracious demeanor.

I had such a great time photographing this fun and relaxed family and the day was absolutely gorgeous. The fog actually lifted and the sun came out for the first time in weeks!

Thank you to the Quays for letting me spend the afternoon with y'all. I had a blast!

You can see more highlights from the Quay family shoot below. {There is music, so turn up your speakers!}

Keeley + Will

I am so excited about showing y'all some highlights from my shoot with Keeley + Will. This is an absolutely gorgeous couple, though I might be a little biased since Keeley is my dear sister! We visited 2 fabulous locations during their shoot: 17-mile Drive in the Pebble Beach area and a little wooded park along Ocean View Boulevard.

Keeley and Will live in Nashville, TN {my hometown!} and were able to squeeze in some photos with me during their visit with my husband and I here. Thanks for letting me photograph you sweet lovebirds!
