10 on 10: December – That Time of Year!

I’ve been trying out wordpress for my blog and hope to be more prolific with my posts!

This past month has been the busiest for me ever as a photographer here in San Diego. Much of it has to do with Christmas — creating family portraits, and a lot of it I suppose is just by chance. With the variety of work I’ve taken on — from pregnancy and newborn to glamour-style portraits and gorgeous children; I have had my hands full, but gratefully so.

I chose 10 images from a few of my sessions to share here in the 10 on 10 circle for the month of December.

It was such a heart-melting joy to photograph newborn twins. They were so good! They let me pose them however I wanted without crying and the parents were so trusting! Bless their hearts, they have a 20-month old girl who I also photographed as a newborn, so they were more relaxed this time around!

And on the theme of babies, I photographed one of my best friends and her hubby-to-be in her seventh month of pregnancy. The love and joy between them and this new life that will soon be in the world brought tears to my eyes!

There is a family from Mexico who hires me to photograph them when they come out about three times a year. It started with a maternity shoot of the Mom, and now the little girl is 20 months old. It’s always a challenge to get the shots you want with children this young, but I shoot a lot to ensure I’ll get something! Here are just a couple of the images I loved of mother and daughter.

I look forward to watching little Maria grow up and enjoy the opportunity to witness it through my lens.

Another fun family shoot was with the Holiday children. The five year-old twin boys were born on Christmas Day, and their four year-old Sister was born on the 4th of July. These few shots are a select few of this beautiful and loving family.

And finally, after seeing some shots I had posted on my facebook page from these sand dunes in Yuma, Arizona–this client asked if we could trek the 2 1/2 hour drive for a photo shoot. The weather was perfect, though I suspect that most days of the year are perfect in this area. I was grateful for my assistant, Kathleen, who helped with light and reflectors, as well as wardrobe changes, as there were a lot! Thankfully, we did a good job of dodging the dune buggies!

We stuck to jewel-toned colors, which was perfect for this stunning norwegian blonde. I haven’t yet edited all these photos but here are just a couple.

Please follow the 10 on 10 circle by viewing the work of Eva! Happy Holidays, everyone! May your days be filled with color and light!

    These are so beautiful Kim. You have such a gift, especially with your portrait work. I can actually feel the love…beautifully expressive eyes.

    The blue dress and the blue sky, her golden hair and the golden sand. Beautiful Kim, breathtakingly so.
