scarlett turns one! {newark, ca birthday party photographer}

Filed under: baby, birthday party, family — kristalucasphotography @ 9:47 am

scarlett is one famous little girl! her amazing parents have been through quite a ride this last year. if you haven’t heard her story, here’s scarlett’s blog. it worked out that i could go to newark for scarlett’s birthday party, and i’m so glad i could make it! every time i think of chris, brandi and scarlett and the journey they have been on together during this past year, i can do nothing but be thankful. thankful for parents who FIGHT, thankful for my kids, thankful that even in the hardest of times there are bright lights.

here are my faves from scarlett’s first {miraculous} birthday party. love all the rainbows…the beauty after the rain.

the zutler family {newark, ca family photographer}

my second newark session was with the zutlers. i have known jennifer for years – i don’t remember exactly when we met, but our families have gone to church together for quite some time now! abel and jennifer had twins last year, and they were looking for some good photos for their Christmas cards. i think they’ll be happy! 🙂

this photo will always make me laugh – to get her kids to stay on the blanket, jennifer put little piles of raisins in front of them. her daughter thought this was the best idea ever. 🙂

i spent last weekend visiting my parents in newark, and had the opportunity to do some fun photo sessions! here’s the first!

i have known jason since high school (and thanks to a mutual friend’s wedding a couple years ago + facebook, we’re back in touch). he has a beautiful wife and adorable son now, and they wanted to do a family shoot. it was so much fun!!! their little boy has the cutest expressions, they look fantastic, and i had a blast. here are a few of my favorites.

i think this was my favorite from the session. love that face!
