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!

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!

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!

Summertime Sessions - Lemonade Stand Minis

Whitney Hartmann - Wednesday, June 27, 2012
What a very busy summer it has been already!! I am behind on blogging about all the great shoots I have done lately. Babies and family shoots, a garden party, Fourth of July, some weddings with Lavender and Twine, even a music video!! WOW! Not to mention the kids are out of school and we have already been to pool parties,VBS, and in the middle of horse camp! What fun we've had!

Here are a snippet of images from our awesome Pink Lemonade Minis. I worked with couple of great gals to make this happen. Take a look at the amazingly cute upholstered chairs! Done by the very talented Lenore over at Peace Love and Lemonade. She also did the super cute banners and most of the styling! So creative that one! Let her know if you need some custom work done! You can check out her ETSY site too.  Also some of our adorable party favors were done by Bon Fortune. Looking for those cute paper straws, cupcake liners, or ever gum balls to match your party decore? Go over and check her out. She does custom kids parties, events, styling, and super cute party favors!!!

I hope you are all enjoying your summer!!! Check back for a summer promotion I will be running, plus a cute summer fun shoot you don't want to miss!!
