This little lady named Leighton has a big brother named Pierce who is 3 years old. I photographed Pierce when he was a newborn. Mommy became a photographer shortly thereafter (I can relate!). Aren’t those lips fabulous? Brittany captured an amazing shot outside (yes, it was warm enough to take her outside!). You can see it here (as well as one of me getting the lip shot): Baby as Art

Oh! And John (Waire), I promise, I will post an outtake or two, SOON! © carrie sandoval | newborn

As if photographing one of the OC’s hottest wedding photographers new baby wasn’t nerve wracking enough, you should have seen the walls full of art in their home! Doug and Chenin Boutwell have had their portraits made by some pretty amazing photographers… and here I am. To photograph their little Max… both honored and pressured, ha! Lots of mood here… cloudy day. And my first time taking the branch on tour!

Have you ever visited their action site? You need to: Totally Rad Actions. I spent a good part of my day playing on their site (shh! because you know I don’t use actions!)… *Way* cool (I mean, totally rad) how you can apply all the actions to a chosen image before you purchase! Very appropriately named.

Ok, I’m doing this. I rarely enter contests (I blame procrastination!) and when I do, I enter and forget about it (and of course, I never win!). This time, I have been encouraged to “let people know”. So, Here I am! If you have a second (or many minutes, if you want to look around), go check out the contest at: Professional Photographer Magazine “Fresh Blog”. There are some awesome entries.

You can find me by typing 0152 into the grey box that says “ENTRY # ____ >>”, then clicking the >>. Thanks for looking!



And because I can’t post without a picture, meet Camille and Hayden, 10 day old twins – as tiny and as cute as they get!
