miles {two year portraits}//malibu, california

Filed under: children — kristalucasphotography @ 11:45 am

This sweet pea just turned two, and I’m so excited that I got to photograph him! We spent the morning at the Malibu Pier, which is such a fun place for photos. 🙂 We took some up on the pier, played in the sand under the pier, and then ended our time with some dinosaurs. It was a great morning! 🙂

While I was in MO, I got to photograph these sweet girls, who belong to some dear friends of ours! We used to spend Easters together while we all lived in NC. It was SO cold for some of these, but you can’t tell by the two happy girls! 🙂

benjamin is seven {birthday party}

Filed under: birthday party, children — kristalucasphotography @ 5:05 pm

I’m finally blogging my own child’s party! This little boy loves (LOVES) Star Wars, which makes his dad very happy. I found some great ideas on Pinterest, and I have a mom and mother in law who are helpful with my crazy ideas!

First, a couple handsome kid portraits! (Thanks to my mom for making the “B” shirt!!)

I had a lot of fun with the food!

The menu: Palpatine Pizzas (English muffin pizzas), Vader Veggies with Droid Dip, Boba Fruit, Wookie Cookies (I made star shaped sugar cookies), Light Sabers (pretzel sticks dipped in the colored candy melts from Michael’s), Tie Fighters (100 Calorie Pack Oreo cookies stuck to a mini marshmallow with melted white chocolate chips), Thermal Detonators (Whopper candy) with Bantha Blue Milk and Yoda Soda (1 pint lime sherbet and a 2 liter of Sprite) to drink. And we had to have Hoth Chocolate Cakes (just cupcakes with silver sugar on top). I found some free fonts online for the invitation, banner, cupcake toppers, etc (here and here).

Party favors: A bag with a Star Wars eraser, Space flash cards and 2 glow sticks (I found all of these in the dollar section at Target). We also gave each child an inflatable light saber (from party city) and a Jedi robe (made by my amazing mother in law).

My mother in law also painted this Yoda, who was a photo booth background and the “Pin the lightsaber on Yoda” game. We also played Star Wars Bingo (free printable here), did a Stormtrooper craft (free printable here), and played with Star Wars masks and toys.

The guests had a blast, as did the birthday boy!

These sweet peas belong to my oldest friend! She came by to see me while I was in town and I got to hold her baby and take pictures. 🙂

the svans family {san francisco, ca}

Filed under: children, family — kristalucasphotography @ 9:57 am

I now love LOVE shooting in san francisco. I always knew it would be amazing, and even though it rained the whole time, I still love these images! There are so many places to duck out of the rain and we barely scratched the surface! I know Beth from an online mommy group, and was excited to photograph her family again!

the fazio family {newark, ca}

Filed under: adults, children, family — kristalucasphotography @ 9:51 am

I had so much fun photographing this family, partly because I have known Krista since junior high! (You have an instant bond when you share an uncommon first name, I think.) These little boys are going to be serious heartbreakers one day soon, so watch out Krista. 🙂 I had a hard time choosing my favorites, there were so many I loved!

This little one was not terribly thrilled about being photographed until the very end. And then he gave me this and my heart melted.

Jason and Regina have such sweet and adorable kids. And they’re also two of the nicest people I know! I went to visit my parents and got to do a few shoots after Christmas, and am so happy I got to meet these little girls! 🙂

Regina made their little tutus. So. adorable.

I have known Caroline since college, and was so excited to photograph her entire family just before Christmas. Her brothers and their families were in town from out of state, so they wanted to get photos of everyone!

I have been blessed to photograph this growing family starting when their first daughter was on the way three years ago! They just added a second precious little girl to their family and I was able to do a fun session with this lovely family of four. It was so much fun!
