I love this couple! I photographed their wedding on September 17th, 2011. Then I got to see them again a few months ago for their Mom and Dad's family session. We decided to take advantage of the trip down to Orange County so we also shot their Cinderella Couture session on the same day. It was a tight schedule but we made it work. The sun was nowhere to be found but still it was a beautiful day. I think even cave light would be beautiful on these two. Just look at how he looks at her...pure love. It was a good thing we were able to shoot this because as it turns out these two love birds will be pushing a baby carriage soon! Yay! Congrats to the both of you! I heart you guys and hope to see again soon! xoxo Rebecca

Stephanie first called me from the Antelope Valley in February to schedule her family session. But due to calendar craziness and weather issues we had to postpone until just last week. I'm a firm believer that everything works out for it's reasons and I'm really glad they finally got to come to Big Bear. Their two little girls are such a joy and so beautiful too. I've never had a two year old as easy as Miss Chloe. I would photograph her again in a heartbeat. Thank you for coming to my neck of the woods "S" family! I really enjoyed meeting your beautiful little family! Come back and visit me again sometime. xoxo Rebecca Big Bear Family photography photographer photos Antelope Valley Lancaster Palmdale

I have to share something about being a photographer. I think I've said it before but it really is such a blessing to be editing a family and feel so connected to them, as if they are my own family. I share their joys and when I get to see the love in the photos it's really something special. I cherish it for certain. I have been photographing this family for almost two years and I think I've gotten to see them four or five times in that two years. I love every session that I've spent with them. They are so inspirational and wonderful. Their two sweet little girls are so beautiful and they are the best parents a girl could ever ask for. They came to Big Bear for their family session and while I'm sure it was a huge undertaking with two little ones and a tired hubby, I hope that these photos will have made the trip all worth it. Thanks you guys for coming up to visit me!! xoxo

I haven't blogged in ages it seems but I stole some time to share this one..... Oh my goodness. The camera loves these two. And they love each other. And I loved taking their photos. Love all around. These two are probably on a flight back home from Paris, having celebrated their First Anniversary. Congratulations you two! I hope you had a blast together, making memories that will last your lifetime. I met Monica during the Summer when she called to inquire about photos. She was super sweet and I was excited to schedule their session almost five months down the road. Honestly I forgot all about it until it snuck right up on us. When they showed up in Big Bear and I saw them I knew it was going to be a fun shoot. She was so beautiful. Like a princess and of course he, her prince charming. We did have fun and I hope that the two of you come back and visit me sometime in the future. I hope you enjoy your sneak peek too! xoxo And a little something fun for their Christmas cards....

My sweet Ava Lacey turned 5 in July. I am overwhelmed with the joy she brings me everyday. I love to watch life and wonder unfold in her. To be honest though, the thought of her growing older and well, more independent, is a bit sad to me. I don't think i'm the only mommy who feels that way. I hope not anyway. I told her that she wasn't allowed to get older than four... she didn't listen. And not only that but she is so excited to grow older that the day after her fourth party she was already planning her fifth birthday party. Down to the guest list and decorations. She is so funny! I guess I'll let her get older. I don't have a choice do I? And I know i'm going to enjoy it anyhow. Every year is a new adventure with a more well-rounded, beautiful little person. I am so blessed. And so thankful that God gave her to us. And even though I do enjoy these little years I also daydream of the day when I see her married and hold her first baby (among other milestones I get to share with her). So for this shoot I wanted to capture a bit of her spirit. I hope to have these when I'm old and gray and to be able to recall all the little things that made her sparkle at five. Like when she concentrates or thinks something is silly she sticks out her tongue. Glad I caught that on camera. Or when she puts on that lavender dress she instantly feels so beautiful you can see it in the way she carries herself. Or when she finds a flower to pick she is so determined. You can't tell her she can't do something, she won't believe you. She "knows" she can. I love that about her. In our house we tell her she is "small but mighty". She now says that to her brother when he challenges her with something. So funny. Her voice is so small and sweet but get her excited and you've never heard anything so squeaky! It's amazing how much squeak she produces. lol! Her legs are so little but she moves them so fast it's hard for anyone to keep up, and she runs almost everywhere she goes. Her husband will need a power chair to keep up with her when she's shopping. She is so independent yet she'll want to have cuddle time with me every night. She loves to dress pretty but also loves the dirt. I enjoy dressing her so much and I would usually be a panic mess about her getting stains on her nice clothes. (they are so expensive these days!) But I've realized that my enjoying how she's dressed isn't her fault. I need to let her get dirty and if that means wrecking her clothes so she has fun and I can still enjoy her cuteness then so be it! She's only little once. Anyway, if you've made it this far thank you for sticking around and listening to my mommy ramblings. Her and big brother are really what this is all about for me.
