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!

Last Days of Summer - Ventura Beach Session

Whitney Hartmann - Tuesday, September 11, 2012

Finally today was the first day I could feel Fall in the air! Things are settling in with back to school and summer is rapidly becoming a distant memory! I get so busy I don't always get to blog about my sessions, but this beauty at the beach had to be shared! Enjoy these last days of summer before the air gets crisp, the days get shorter, and the water gets too cold!

Back to School - Ojai Portrait Sessions

Whitney Hartmann - Saturday, September 08, 2012

My sweet little girl recently went back to school, and this year I am on our school's Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). This past week we had our annual "Back to Reality" BBQ! What a fun evening this is. The PTO works hard to put it on, but everyone has a blast! This year I wanted to help out by doing a Back to School photobooth! I think it turned out so super cute! If you participated in the photobooth follow these directions to find your images, or just feel free to check them out!

You are sure to find them! Please contact me if you have any questions! 

BTW I made the cute Back to School banner myself, and I printed the grade signs from 

I Heart Naptime!
