A few weeks ago we shot photos of the Jacobs family in Newport Beach. You may also recognize Christian (the dad) if you are an Aquabats fan, or you may have even noticed his random cameos on Nick Jr. and Noggin being interviewed as one of the creators and directors of Yo Gabba Gabba. We're not usually ones to choose to shoot at the beach, but we thoroughly enjoyed this session, the whole family was awesome to work with, Christian brought his surf boards, and we even found some crazy ocean creatures along the beachside.

holy cow, the aquabats grew up and had families?! hehe, these are so very cool. all those shots of them with the seastars are amazing, but the first one made me laugh out loud. my wife loved the pair of shots of the mom with her daughter, calm, serene, and the dad with his sons, crazy and hyper--it reminds us of our family. you may have inspired some new family shots for us =]

Daye is one of the most adorable little baby girls I had ever set eyes on! Big blonde curls, bright blue eyes and the most squeezable cheeks! Vicki, Daye's mom, is a friend of Justin's through YGG and production and had asked us to book a sitting with her and her daughter. We shot the session mostly at their home in L.A., we even caught some moments with dad as well. What a sweet little girl, introducing Baby Daye!

I'm too busy to leave a message right now, but if I must say so, there's nothing quite like waking up in the middle of the day (if you've got that luxury) and clicking your mouse to bring your computer out of it's slumber...with all the sites of importance you've got in your toolbar and still you can't help but press the one that reads "Amelia Lyon", as the first shot of 'information super highway' breathes into your electronic lungs and fills you will supreme energy...you sit back and say to yourself "they've done it again. How do they do it again and again?". Lean back in your office chair and just think to yourself, rocking back and forth, up and down, and still in awe that what your seeing on your screen isn't your imagination. It's just good okay? That's all the stuff I would say if I had the time, but I don't.

I want to thank Amelia and Justin for doing this session for us. All the photos are so beautiful, and I am grateful to have these moments captured forever. I'm glad everyone likes them! The one posted here of my daughter and I makes me burst with joy it's so fantastic! Thanks A&J! We will have another session soon!
