I’ve got issues!

July 1, 2011

June has been such an exciting month! The Baby as Art team started the month off by welcoming Pink and Carey Hart’s baby girl, Willow, to the world with her first photo session… which was featured in People Magazine a few weeks later. There will be an individual blog post about that next week on the Baby as Art blog. I just wanted to mention it today so my readers could pick up a copy while it’s still on the news stands! And for my friends in China and Malaysia, be sure to pick up a copy of the June issues of Photo Creator and Advanced Images Photography magazines… featuring an interviews with “me”! Thanks for visiting!

Miss Hailey Gee’s skin may be described as fragile and weak. But I know first hand that her spirit can be described as the complete opposite! Hailey was born with a severe case of Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB), a rare, genetic disease that causes the skin to blister, even with the slightest rub. She lives every day similarly to that of a burn victim, but even worse because her internal organs are also affected. There is no cure for EB, so the focus of treatment is to promote the continuous healing of the skin. Please read all the details of EB and watch videos of Hailey on her website: www.healinghailey.com .

I am also hoping my wonderful readers will notice the Paypal Donate button on her website. Absolutely any dollar amount will help this courageous family. Paypal makes it safe, easy and fast and it’s completely tax deductible. If you live in Fallbrook or anywhere close to north county San Diego, I invite you to join me at a fundraiser for Hailey next Saturday, March 12 from 11am – 2pm. Hosted by my favorite place to be: Martial Art Concepts, 325 N. Brandon, Fallbrook, CA. There will be live music, the best ever pulled pork BBQ, Raffle, Silent Auction (hmmm, any expecting San Diego Mom’s wanting to bid on a newborn session??), a martial arts competition and demonstration (let me tell you now, there is amazing talent at this studio and I am staking out my front row seat the night before!) and last but not least, the chance to meet Hailey in person. Any local who donates $25 or more on or before March 12 will receive a rewards card good one month (any month of this year) of free classes for the entire family at Martial Art Concepts. This is an *insane* deal! For those of you who visit my Facebook wall, you may know that I have gotten in the best shape of my life this past year by taking Master Paulson’s Ta Kwon Do Fitness and Hapkido classes. By far, the most FUN and intense form of exercise I’ve ever done.

I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph Hailey on a warm winters day when she was feeling exceptionally well. Thank you, Hailey, for touching my life!

Well, what I thought was going to be my first two sessions of the new year, turned into my last two sessions of last year! Meet sweet Baby K and Pax!

Also, I know this is last minute, but if anyone knows somebody with a brand new baby (born after Dec. 27) we would love to extend a special gift to them! We are holding a workshop next week and need a fresh baby to pose for us. The workshop will be held in the Fallbrook studio and there will be no session fee and complimentary prints. Please inquire within if interested: email or call: (760)468-6562.

Her Daddy is a hero.

November 11, 2010

I have been trying to prepare this blog post for the past two days in time for this special veterans day and now time is running out. None of my words seem worthy enough. Thankfully, Britt has put together a heartfelt blog post on the Baby as Art blog. Please visit to read about Sienna and her courageous family. Thank you for looking! image © carrie sandoval

Little fellow. Big cello.

November 10, 2010

Be on the look out for a new release by cello soloist, Jennifer Miyahira. I personally can’t wait for my own copy so that I can play the soothing melodies during baby photo sessions! Jennifer and I had the same vision for the cover art of her CD and I love how it turned out! Tiny Mr. Brayden modeled for us during the shoot. It was a warm but cloudy day, so we were tempted to take him outside for a few shots as well! Thanks for looking! © carrie sandoval | newborn photographer
