Chris and Linzie’s Vacation Maternity Session (by Scott & Breanna)

One of our (Scott and Breanna’s) favorite parts about our job, is that it involves being a part of all the exciting milestones in people’s lives.0073It’s a pretty special thing, really.0089Which is why we absolutely love it when we get to start at the beginning with someone and then move with them as they go through many different stages in life!0097Linzie and Chris are one of our favorite examples of this!0007003400270060The first time we ever took photos of them is when they were just a young little engaged couple...0006

0086…then we had the privilege of taking photos of them on their wedding day..00370030…and as a special bonus that we don’t always get, we were able to be with them on their one year wedding anniversary, doing Unique Session photos!020080And now… it’s time for maternity photos!01080112Lucky for us, they were already planning a trip from Phoenix to Los Angeles for Chris’ birthday (yes, another great moment in their lives we were happy to celebrate with them)!0087So they decided to go ahead and make this trip an opportunity to reunite with their favorite photographers (that would be moi!) to do a maternity shoot!009300160067We were so happy to reconnect with them and had so much fun seeing them during this next exciting stage in their lives together!004500500052005100410047Thanks so much, Linzie and Chris, for bringing us along for the ride in your adventure through life together!

Jon, Doris, Jaime, and their new wonderful addition (by Scott & Breanna)

Remember when you were a little kid and old ladies would pinch your cheeks and rave about how much you’ve grown? Well I, Breanna, am officially an old lady now. You’d be one too if you’d spent time with this adorable itty witty face!

I mean, you see this little baby being carried around in a Baby Bjorn or whatever those things are called, and the next day they’re three! How can you NOT start freaking out about how big they’ve gotten when the first thing that crosses your mind is that this kid MUST have been eating magic beans to make her grow, because there’s no WAY you’ve aged as many years as this kid has in the past 3 years!

That’s how I’ve been with poor Jaime. I’ve tried to keep it to myself in order to spare her cheeks, but I still REALLY can’t believe that she’s gotten so big since I first met her as a tiny little baby at the Hawaii wedding we were photographing that her dad, Jon, was a groomsman in!

It didn’t take us long after getting re-acquainted with Jaime to realize that the years that have passed have been 3 very active and energetic years for this family!

The scrape on her chin says it all. She is just an adorable ball of fiery energy to say the least.

Luckily, she has some amazing parents who have no problem being as crazy and childlike as they need to be in order to really enjoy this precious and quickly moving time they have with their little girl at this very energetic stage in her life.

We first re-united with this incredible family to do photos of a very pregnant Doris. And Doris, I have to say, I was VERY impressed with how well you kept up with your little girl, even when you were carrying around an entire additional child in you! You didn’t miss a beat.

And neither did Jon, who apparently has been trained in the ancient art of holding the attention of a 3 year old, because he can hold on to that valuable resource with the best of them!

(Seriously, that’s one committed dad!)

Is there anything that can make a family as precious as this one, even more wonderful?!

Well I do know of one thing….

When baby boy Alton made his appearance into this world, this family went from great to greater.

I mean, look at this guy! He’s already using his awesome expressions to communicate his little personality to his family!

Doris, Jon, Jaime, and Alton…. we are so happy we got to spend so much time with you all over the past couple of months and we are so excited to see how you guys settle into your new roles with one another to create an even more amazing family than you’ve already been over the past years.

Congratulations on this major event, we are so happy we got to be a part of it!

P.S. Good luck at being the great big sister we know you can be, Jaime!

Vicki and Franz welcome their new family member! (by Scott & Breanna)

Raise your hand if you’re still exhausted from the busy holiday season! OK I know that most of your hands SHOULD be up but you’re actually still too exhausted to physically hold them in the air! Sure we’re all worn out, but I really think that Vicki and Franz beat us all!

They had all the holiday fun to participate in, plus they bought a house, AND had a baby! Now that is a whirlwind of major events.

They not only survived the chaos that major events inevitably bring, but they enjoyed every second of it!

So when it came to picture time for their new little baby, what better place to do it than at their new house with all the things they love surrounding them!?

(quite a view from their porch, isn’t it?!)

As you can see, their 2 dogs are definitely a part of the family, and once you meet them it’s easy to understand why! They were some awesome little pups who NEVER got in the way during the photo session… well, OK, maybe just a couple times, but they were just making sure we got some great shots of them too!

And what would a newborn photo session be without a ride in a car? Wait…what?

At least that’s the case when your parents met while designing cars together! So of course we had to get one or two in there with cars involved!

Overall, it was a beautiful session, on a beautiful day, with a beautiful family, in their beautiful new home.

Thanks to the 3 of you (well the 5 of you, counting the dogs), for helping us have a great session together. I hope the rest of this new year, full of new things, goes as well as your photo session to commemorate them all went!

A Baby Story VIDEO: Hayden (By Scott & Breanna)

Yes, that’s right! Radiant Photography has done our second ever Family Video! This one is another Baby Story (see our first here)… and we couldn’t be happier with it.

When Jill and Morgan called us about doing a Baby Story for their soon to be here son, Hayden, I (Breanna) spent several hours on the phone with Jill learning about their family so we could begin working on a story line for their video.

One of the first things I learned was that music IS their life.

Both Jill and Morgan consider music to be one of the finer things in life so when they first started dreaming about what life with their little one would be like, they knew without a doubt that music had a place in there.

(I love these pictures where it looks like he’s rocking out!)

The other thing they unquestioningly know is that little Hayden will be a 49er’s fan by blood. Morgan already has big plans for what football Sunday’s will be like in their house and Jill smiles wide as she watches her husband dream about life with their son.

When we showed up to shoot our final video footage, we got to meet Hayden. And just as we expected, the little guy was already pretty happy with the life he had.  His parents couldn’t be happier to have him around, and he was pretty cool with that.

Alright I’m done telling you about all the things you’re about to see, so now it’s time for the main event… the video. If you want to see more photos you can check them out here.
