We had a triple header on Sunday, with myself shooting newborn Adriana and recent grad Audrianna in VB and the boys shooting the Wrights off in Oceanview.   I’ll have the Wright family pics up in a later post when I get some edits from the guys!

Maybe I’m reading too much into it, but there were lots of similarities between my two shoots:  their similar names,  the milestone portrait session, they were both beautiful girls and both shoots were gifts from family members (brothers, to be exact).    My homie Gary bought the Baby Steps Plan for his brother and Audrianna’s brother paid for her Malaya session as well.    Portraiture is a GREAT gift – especially for important moments like a new baby or celebrating your first steps into adulthood…priceless.

Btw, take note people,  this is a really good example of coordinating outfits without matching.  Cute color palette and good lookin’ fam!

Baby Adriana was only 10 days old and slept pretty much through her entire shoot.  When we did get her to open her eyes, I was so glad because she had pretty blue/green eyes:

A few hours after Adriana’s shoot, it was Audrianna’s turn.   I never met her nor really knew anything abut her until the day she showed up; her brother booked the shoot and I only spoke to her via text message (kids these days!) but right when she walked in, Rina and I knew it would be a great shoot.   She was a photographer’s dream – super duper nice and also drop dead gorgeous.   We decided to stay close by and just wander around Town Center.   We avoided the fountain area and instead explored the Westin,  the Sandler Center courtyard and the small “park” across the street.

Her boyfriend tagged along which I give him mad props for…Malaya shoots are extemely long and boring for the people who aren’t the subject but he hung in there.  When we finished up her shoot, I grabbed a couple of shots of them together:
