In January this year, there was an auction for Ashley of Lil Blue Boo
to help raise money for her cancer treatment. I love Ashley & the girls have several dresses that she has made, so I knew I wanted to contribute to her cause & bid on an auction item.
Luckily for me, a Northern California photographer, Monika McSweeney had donated a photo shoot to Ashley's auction. I looked at Monika's website & I knew I had to bid on this item.
I had just found out I was pregnant (with Luke) so I knew a family photo shoot for this Fall would be perfect! I stalked that auction all day & all night to make sure that I won. And, I did :)
We had our photoshoot in October & I am SO happy with how the photos turned out.
I can't believe Monika got so many good ones because the girls were not cooperating AT ALL. In the picture below I am smiling/gritting my teeth and saying to the girls, "You better listen or you aren't getting your reward."
I LOVE this chair. I picked our outfits and location based on this chair. I love how it POPS!
Love the individual ones she got of each kid.
My Lukey guy.
Seriously, the girls were being crazy.
It was fun to incorporate this suitcase also. Kate's favorite color is purple & the girls had fun sitting, standing & jumping off this suitcase!
Thank you Monika for the beautiful photos, I will always treasure them!
If you need a photographer in Nor Cal, I highly recommend Monika!
