Happy Valentine's Day!! - Ojai, 2012

Whitney Hartmann - Tuesday, February 14, 2012

Happy Valentine's everyone! I love this little holiday! It is such a great time to show everyone you love them. Today I will be having a little special V-day dinner. To carry on our childhood tradition, I will be making heart shaped meatloaf and giving the kids special little Valentine's Day presents too. Maybe the hubs and I will go to a movie this weekend, but I think now that we have a family, I like to be all together for this special day.

Here are some sweet shots of out Valentine's Day event. I really want to thank everyone who came and especially all the vendors that participated!! Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Flowers - Bella Raines  |  Pastries - Petite Reve  |  Tutu's and Tanks - Dream Spun Kids

Whitney Hartmann - Friday, February 03, 2012

Here is a little snippet of the fun we had at our Valentine's Day Mini's last year. These kids were so sweet! I like to do something different every year and this year is no exception. I can't wait to set up our candy & cupcake table, kissing booth, and our sweet pom poms. I have a bunch of other vendors involved this year that will make it super special as well! Bella Raines, Petite Reve Cafe, Dream Spun Kids , and Party Poms! Can't wait! It will be a great day. If you are still interested in participation, contact me asap!!

Twin Newborn Session - Ventura, CA

Whitney Hartmann - Sunday, January 08, 2012

What a treat to photography these BEAUTIFUL newborn twin girls!! Only 8 days old, and they were sooo sweet! Can you really eat babies?? I really did want to eat them up. I was there for 5 hrs and they did not cry once! I have so many great images to show you plus the amazing maternity session we had up at the Matilija Hot Springs in Ojai, but until then this sweet little sneak peek will have to do! Enjoy!

Jessica Joy Reese - Team Negu

Whitney Hartmann - Thursday, January 05, 2012


I am so saddened today by the loss of this sweet girl, Jessica Joy Rees. Her father is one of the pastors at Saddleback Church, and I have followed her story. She was such a strong girl and started Team Negu (Never Ever Give Up) and Joy Jars, which are meant to bring joy to other sick children, all while she was sick herself. Please go to her facebook page and "like" her. She really wanted to reach 50,000 fans. Let's try and make that happen. Please read her story, like, then share! Then, please say a prayer for her family.
