How has summer flown by so quick! School is already starting next week for these two little friends of mine and they will be going into kindergarten! 

I've known them since they were little babies and it has been amazing being so close to them and watching them grow these past few years. I've also got to photograph them which is an added bonus!

I've started to incorporate "play" into my photography with kids and I'm loving it!

I guess you can call it lifestyle but I think it' more like, "Hi, my name is Lacey and I will be your photographer and babysitter for the next hour!" (but I love kinds so no one is complaining).

The Abranyi Family Lifestyle Session

Makiko and Neil have two adorable little ones, their daughter Laya and their Frenchie Bulldog pooch, Bo-Bo! Laya had just turned one and although she didn't say much she could say "Bo-Bo"! Getting one year olds to cooperate with photographs can sometimes be a challenge, but pets... always a challenge! However, Bo-Bo was pretty easy going, and as long as we kept the pace moving he seemed to stay fairly content with his situation. Overall, wonderful day, wonderful family, and wonderful session!

The Golden Hour

The Golden Hour!  That beautiful hour right before the sun goes down... my absolute favorite time for photo taking. 

And for some romantic inspiration check out my most recent engagement session with Angel and CJ on the beach in Monterey, CA.
