Not quite a sneak peek because Mommy has seen her gallery, but little Silas is too cute not to share. I am determined to catch up this week! © carrie sandoval | orange county baby photographer

This post has been sitting as a draft on my blog for 3 months now. I couldn’t decide whether or not to post it. I entered this image into my very first PPA International Print Competition in May but I don’t think it got accepted, so I am going to finally blog it after all!

Ok, as for the title, I don’t mean just this sweet baby girl. I had dreamt of this shot for the past year, back when I first started pairing up tree parts with babies. Part of the process was finding the perfect “prop”. I still hadn’t found it as of last August (08) when fellow photographer Shawn Houllis agreed to let me try a few ideas out on her new baby. Because it was warm out, we tried this on a live tree outside and failed… well, not completely, but I knew it could be better (and I am thankful that I was successful with other shots for Shawn so she didn’t walk away empty handed!). So, ever since then, I’ve been on the prowl for the perfect fallen tree with the perfect swoop in it.  Even my kids would point out tree stumps to me during car rides. Finally, about 4 months ago, I stopped in my tracks. I had found the perfect fallen tree. I think my husband was happy to shut me up, so he gladly gassed up his chainsaw and brought it home for me. And what perfect timing. Another photographer friend, Sheryl Paulino was about to have a baby girl. I am so thankful for fellow photographers who trust me enough to try new ideas out on. So, here she is. Little Miss Kayla… 3 weeks old (at the time). Thank you Shawn and Sheryl for fueling my obsession of babies and trees!  © carrie sandoval | baby

souther california child photographer

I just wanted to shout out to my good friend, Jen Wright. She graduated from the Brooks Institute (Photography) this past weekend and I am so proud of her! She moved across the country from Atlanta, Georgia, to attend Brooks in Santa Barbara. She has not decided where she is going to live and set up shop (CA or GA) but I know how much she loves southern California. Since she is already here, I am urging her to give California her best shot (pun intended) over the summer. Not only can Jen nail the technicalities of a portrait, but she connects with children very well… a bonus that came from many years working as a nanny! So, if you are in the San Diego, Orange County or Los Angeles area and needing portraits of your kiddos, check out her website: Jen Wright – *California* children’s photographer
