A Christmas Miracle - Ventura Family Photographer

Whitney Hartmann - Monday, December 24, 2012

This year we truly have so much to be thankful for. Hold your babies tight and give them lots and lots of hugs and kisses. We pray for all the families who lost their babies this Christmas, and we pass on our prayers to keep all our new babies safe and sound, like this Christmas miracle!This sweet guy was an early Christmas baby for his wonderful parents! He is the sweetest guy, and we had such a great time playing photo shoot with him! He was our little super model! They are so blessed to have him, and I am so blessed to have met this wonderful family!

I hope all of you have a warm, safe, happy and joyous holiday! 

Merry Christmas!

Happy Holidays!!

Whitney Hartmann - Saturday, December 01, 2012

I am so excited to share all the great holiday sessions I have been doing this season!!! Unfortunately, I can't!!!  I would really hate to spoil everyone's surprise for their friends and family when they send out their holiday cards! So I really try not to share any of my clients pictures until they get a chance to send them out! In the meantime here are some super cute pics I took of my little man over Thanksgiving! He had a great time playing in the fall leaves! Next I will share my holiday pics with you guys!! Have a great season everyone!

Happy 4th of July!!! - Ventura Minis

Whitney Hartmann - Tuesday, July 03, 2012

Happy Fourth of July!!! We love this holiday! In our little town of Ojai everybody starts putting out there chairs for the parade weeks in advance. it is quite controversial in this little town, but I love it! I think it is very charming. We meet up with our friends and gather under a shady spot and watch the Ojai parade and cheer as our friends that are in the parade pass us by. Then we watch the fireworks from our neighbors front lawn at night. It is pretty cute! 

Enjoy some cute pics form our 4th of July mini shoot!


















Have a safe and wonderful Fourth of July!
