Mya, Taylor and Jordyn were my modeling misses for Courtney Courtney, a fabulous clothing designer who creates amazing one-of-a-kind pieces. I absolutely love her dresses because they’re urban-chic and and not to mention, very comfortable for your lil’ ones! You can dress it up or dress it down for completely different looks and no matter how you wear it, your lil’ one will still be stylin’! CourtneyCourtney was generous enough to offer a free upgrade to priority shipping if you mention this very post when checking out! Gotta love it!
I received an e-mail from Just Spotted, an Orange County blog about all things Orange County and to my surprise, this blog was nominated for their 1st Annual Just Spotted Orange County Blog Awards. Who knew there was such thing? Just Spotted is a fantastic blog put together by real OC moms who considers their blog “a guide to living, visiting & dreaming about Orange County”. I’m honored to be counted among the best, so please click here to vote for Navy Sou Photography and Little Miss Mya!
A mother. A daughter. A connection. It was real and these two radiated warmth, beauty and a connection that was undeniable. It’s a beautiful thing and I’m glad I was able to capture that. Thank you both for a wonderful session!
I wanted to wish everyone a safe and wonderful 4th of July weekend this weekend. We will be traveling out of state due to a death in the family, so I won’t be able to update the blog within the next week. I also wanted to let everyone know that I am still alive and kicking despite the lack of posts! Don’t fret – I look forward to posting upon my return as I have lots of great sessions to post! Happy 4th of July from our family to yours!
“Baby love, my baby love…”
I was a wreck – a nervous wreck throughout the shoot. Newborns are unfamiliar and personally, it’s been so long – so long since I’ve fed a baby, kissed a baby and held a baby and here I was photographing a newborn. Despite the jitters, I was anxious and antsy about the session. This was one of my first newborn shoots and although it’s not my forte, I will try my hand at anything…at least once! Congratulations, Mom and Dad! She’s a beauty!
Cheap and chic is my solution to wear and tear. One of my favorite spots is Forever 21 , and just recently our local Forever 21 store upgraded to even a bigger location. I just couldn’t believe my eyes when I realized they turned a department store, which was once Mervyn’s, into Forever 21. The space is huge and I was just overwhelmed with all of the racks and racks of clothing that they had. Now, they have a plus size section and even a mens section. I’ve loved Forever 21 …well…ever since I was 21 simply because it’s affordable. Who says you gotta compromise style for price? Lately, I’ve been shopping there more, especially for versatile pieces that I can wear to my shoots. When I’m on a shoot, I tend to lay on the ground, kneel and squat in the most bacteria infested places and at the end of the day, I come home with worn out, raggedy clothes that I cannot seem to salvage even with a stain remover. So that’s just one of the many reasons why I shop at Forever 21. It’s cheap and chic and great for wear and tear!
