I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Jolene & Gerric for several years now and got the chance to photograph them for their 5 Year Wedding Anniversary not too long ago.  They are such a sweet & loving couple and I couldn’t be more happier for them now that they are expecting their first child, a baby girl!  Jolene is due just 4 days after me and will be delivering at the same hospital as me as well!  How fun would that be if we went into labor at the same time?!

Jolene & Gerric…thanks again for always being so sweet and fun!  I had so much fun with you guys (especially with all the location hiccups we had that day…lol!!!)  and cannot wait to meet your baby girl!!

This is my second time getting to photograph this sweet little family.  I first met them last year when Jacob was just a wee little guy.  Now he is bigger, faster, more engergetic…did I mention faster?  LOL…Jacob had us running all over the park playing catch up which was good for me since I’ve been lax on the exercise ever since the bump has made an appearance :-)  Okay…who am I kidding?  I’ve been lax on the exercise like pretty much my whole life…but that’s a whole different story for another day :-)

I loved seeing how Jacob is so enthusiastic about his surroundings…even after a full day at preschool he had so much energy in that little body of his :-)  Right now, Jacob absolutely loves dogs (likes looking at them, not being near them!) and loves the guitar (we happened across a guitar player in the park and he was just mesmerized).  I hope I get the chance to continue to see little Jacob grow and change…he’s already grown so much in less than a year!

Jacob, Stella, & Jay…thank you once AGAIN for sharing your lives with me!  It was again an absolute pleasure spending the afternoon with you all exploring Balboa Park!

We stumbled upon this empty fountain and Jacob was so curious as to why there was no water in there?

Doing what he does best…running!

So fun!  I didn’t know they had fish and turtles in the pond!

A rare occasion where Jacob was still…lol!

I’m still amazed we were able to get more than just one family shot….thanks gummies for saving the day!

Look at that sweet little face!

They make a beautiful family don’t they?

Some with just mom & dad :-)

Love how happy they are!
