Krysta's Maternity Shoot | San Diego Family Photographer

As many of you know, I come from a big, goofy, affectionate family. On the Powell side alone, I am 1 of 12 cousins (18 if you count the ones that have married in) and we are thick as thieves!

Some of you have been blessed to meet my good-natured and selfless cousin-in-law, Krysta. Krysta and my cousin, Adam, dated for 4 or 5 years before they were engaged and our family became so fond of Krysta during this time that we told Adam, "if you don't marry Krysta, we'll keep her and ditch you!" Adam is a smart man, so he took the ultimatum to heart and decided to wed this darling girl -- winning a bride and keeping his family!

So, first came love, (then came wise and somewhat threatening council), then came marriage, and then came baby Mikayla!

I have had the great pleasure of taking Adam and Krysta's engagement, wedding, maternity, and newborn photos and I am so honored they have chosen me to chronicle their family's growth!

Now, if you read the paragraph before this one carefully, you may have realized that Mikayla has already been born and photographed! Oops! But remember, I admitted that I'm blogging retrospectively, so you'll just have to wait for more from this pleasant and prolific pair (they are already pregnant with their second baby!).

Love you Krysta & Adam.

Abbey's first haircut

I realize that it has been almost a year since my last post and that my perpetual enthusiasm to 'catch up' has proven not to be sufficient to propel me through the last few months. In other words, we have been busy!!! However, with the help of an amazing Amber Dawn Photography fan (my wonderful sister-in-law), my hopes and dreams of sharing the many images from 2009 and 2010, of fantastic people in beautiful places might actually become reality! Thanks Tammy for 'joining' the team!

So, where do you start when you are so far behind? Well, no better place than the present, right? While I fully intend to retrace my every move and reminisce every moment of the past year...I will start with what's new at the Burmeister household as of today:

Abbey is three and a half...and she just had her first haircut.

After 3-4 inches cut and some long layers...

She's ready for the next Pantene commercial!

So big...she is getting so big.
