While scouting new locations for an upcoming group session I snapped a few quick shots of this mama and her two sweet girls. You can almost feel the love they have for each other through these photographs.  This mama was so gentle, loving and patient with her daughters I just love how these photos capture their raw, unedited beauty. The way light was dancing around them as the sun was slowly setting behind the trees made for some dreamy shots and a perfect ending to a gorgeous winter day on the Central Coast.
If you've been following my blog posts lately then you've been following this "baby bump". My good friend Lauren is expecting her third baby this spring and it's been so much fun to watch this adorable bump of hers grow. On New Years Eve her and her kiddos came over to play and I was able to snap a few quick pics of her and her little cowboy just before the last sunset of 2013.
