I’m tired. Cat is more tired. Clara is pretty darn tired, too. She was born on April 4th, 2008, at 5:40 pm and weighed in at a healthy 6 pounds, 15 ounces. Here is one photo to hold your interest taken by our amazing friend Stephanie Williams! More pictures and info to follow. I’m going to take a nap.

Brianne found our business card floating around at one of our local baby boutiques and emailed me to set up a session. That is so cool! We photographed their family in the studio and also did a few outdoor shots. The results were, as you can see, simply beautiful! We are so excited to have them as part of the Next Exit family and we can’t wait to shoot Christian’s birthday cake smash in a couple of months!

Ila & Danny are getting married at the beautiful Turnip Rose in Costa Mesa this May! They scheduled their engagement session with Adi on Ila’s birthday (how cute!) at the location that Danny proposed (even cuter!).
They are both seem so comfortable in front of the camera! Aren’t they cute-r-ific???
