Santa Rosa Child Photographer | Colten

Oh Hey Lovelies, it’s Lindsey, your Santa Rosa Child Photographer!

Well, well, well…. seems my big blogging plans went by the wayside… But seeing how it’s the start of a new year, I’ll give it another shot.

I’m sharing these photos I took last summer of my youngest, Colten.  He just turned two when I took these.  He is oh-so-adorable, but he can also be the biggest stinker!








Did I mention he has lases that make all the girls SWOON!  He practically gets attacked when we visit the make up counters at Ulta, all the girls are so jealous!



Seeing how most two year olds like to run away from the camera… a little bribery can’t hurt.  I actually set the candy on the flower (see below) and said “don’t you touch that candy!”  “You’ll be in big trouble!”… and you know what he did…




He looked right at me and smiled big.  Boom.  I got my shot.  Then he of course grabbed the candy and ran away.








Two… The struggle is real…



Here’s a quick tip, if you have a toddler at your session, bring a step ladder!  These bottom two photos he’s sitting on the ladder and I just zoomed in.  He runs so fast it’s hard to get a good up-close shot of him, having the ladder gave him something to climb and kept him still for a few seconds.

I just love this little guy, I call him my forever baby… it feels bittersweet to know that he is the last baby I’ll ever call my own.  I guess I just want to hang onto the thought of him being my little baby for as long as I can.




Hope you enjoyed meeting my youngest : )

Santa Rosa Child Photographer | Dylan

Hello there, I’m Lindsey, a Santa Rosa Child Photographer!

Even though I’ve had my website for quite a while now, I’ve never actually written a blog post.  In fact, I had to google how to write a blog post.  Lucky for me, wikihow was kind enough to show me in 6 easy steps (with pictures) how to.

So, here we are.  I thought for my first post I should share a little about my own family and post some photos of my own kids.  Then of course I have BIG plans of blogging all kinds of things!  Could be anything from a What to Wear Guide to showcasing images from current (and past) sessions, could even be helpful tips for taking your own photos, who knows… I suppose the possibilities are endless.

Ok, back to this post.  I have two boys, Dylan is 5 and Colten is 2.  They are the cutest, funniest, most wonderful little people and they completely own my heart.  I have been lucky enough to stay home with them full time for the past year and it has been the best year of my life.  Now, that’s not to say there wasn’t a time or two that I wanted to pull my hair out or possibly sell them to the zoo or run away to a tropical island… but really, it’s been great : )

Enough with the talking… Here is my big one


Those beautiful flowers were in a parking lot!  I did a ton of shoots here, sadly the flowers didn’t last long… I feel pretty guilty for probably being the reason they didn’t last long.

And here’s another little corner of my fancy parking lot


And just to keep it real… little boys need to act silly and make faces.  It’s a fact.  I just go with it, as you can see I get plenty of non-goofy faces too.  I have just personally found, that if I let them get their sillies out, then I end up getting what I want too.


This kid, I love him so much.


Well, it’s getting late and I have other editing to do tonight, so I’ll have to make another post to show off Colten (I didn’t bring him along on this shoot anyway).

Thanks for reading, I hope you enjoyed it.  I hope I stick with my big blogging plans… only time will tell : )
