Meet Mariah, Hailey and Aubrianna — otherwise known as the Kiddie Critics. They’re a super cute little trio who give their reviews on everything from food, places, things, and more. How cute is that. Check out their website. I had an insane amount of fun photographing them for this session and judging from the photos, I’m guessing they did too! Watch out world, there’s no stopping these girls!

Well…I’m still trying to figure out how this happened, but they tell me my little baby Kingston is now 8 months old. Whaaat?! The good thing is that now that he’s sitting up, we we’ve been having fun (maybe a little tooooo much fun) taking pictures of him. These pictures were taken yesterday morning and it was pretty easy to set up. I found a cardboard box (check), rifled through the kids toys to find the Toy Story characters (check), and of course, found a cute baby (check!). If you love Toy Story as much as my kids, I hope you enjoy the pics!
Do you have an idea for a themed photoshoot? Let me know and we’ll make it happen! Email firstname.lastname@example.org =)
I recently had the pleasure of photographing Damani Jr. and his parents, Ayana and Damani.
Ayana is an elementary school teacher and has plenty of experience with children, so she’s going to make a great mom. Damani Jr. is named after his father, Damani, who is a long-time musician, hip-hop vocalist, and music composer and producer. If you grew up in the 90s, you may remember the Oakland, California-based underground hip-hop group Souls of Mischief and their song ’93 til Infinity’. “This is how we chill from ’93 til!” If that brought back some memories, you might also recognize Damani as one of the group’s members, or as he’s better known by his stage names Phesto and Phesto Dee. He is also a part of the eight-person alternative hip-hop collective, Hieroglyphics, along with the other members of Souls of Mischief.
What a little hunk!
This knit cocoon and hat were made specially for Damani Jr. by a close family friend. Doesn’t he look adorable? I think he approves.
This piano holds a special place in their family as it was made in Oakland, where Dad was born and raised.
Love this quote! What a great choice of home decor.
Dad sat at the piano to compose a new song, giving us a behind-the-scenes look at the songwriting process! Damani Jr loved it.
I thought this was such a tender moment between Damani Jr. and his father. Maybe Damani Jr. will inherit his father’s musical talents!
Damani Jr. is wearing one of his dad’s favorite hats: like father, like son!
There’s nothing like the beauty of a mother holding her newborn son.
Ayana and Damani,
You have a beautiful new family and I loved every minute spent documenting the three of you during this exciting time in your lives.

Orbit Baby (located in Newark, CA) is reaching out for help to find several kids for an upcoming stroller commercial. They’re in the process of looking for:
-a 3 year old girl PLUS a 7 or 8 year old girl who looks like the 3 year old girl (ideally relatives)
-a 3 year old boy
They’re also looking for someone for the voice over for the spot. They need to sound 6-8 years old, but can be any age as long as they are convincing in that age range.
If you have a child that fit this description, please email me right away at email@example.com and I’ll forward your info to them. Make sure to include your child’s name, age, and a snapshot of your child.
