2010 holiday mini sessions | jules trandem photography

I am so excited to announce the dates for the holiday mini sessions.

I am planning these sessions at my favorite places to photograph in San Diego … the park, the field, and the beach.

If you’re looking for more than a mini, there are a few dates available for a full custom family session.   All holiday sessions need to be completed by November 15th and holiday print and card orders need to be in by December 1st.

baby b | san diego newborn photographer

This is one of the beautiful newborn babies that I was able to photograph when I was on vacation this summer.  I joined up with Tamara Lalanne and Gina Maxine on a busy day with back to back newborn sessions.  They are a wonderful newborn team.  Thanks for including me in the fun!  I can’t wait for my next newborn session in San Diego this year.

Jan and John celebrated their wedding with close family and friends at the Rancho Bernardo Inn.  It was a beautiful ceremony and I was honored to be there to photograph their special day.  Jan’s son E was a very important part of this evening … you will quickly be able to tell that he was a favorite of mine!

Thank you so much for asking me to be a part of this wonderful day!  xoxo Jules

back to school … kindergarten style | san diego child photographer

With such great anticipation, Brooks started Kindergarten on Wednesday.  It was such a proud, sweet moment for me to hold his hand in line as he waited for his teacher to open the door.

No hesitation.  No hint of being shy.  No fear.  His smile was HUGE!  The only small tear I got was from how proud I was to watch him walk in his room with great confidence.  He’s ready to take it all in and be the best little kindergartener he can be.

I didn’t bring my camera to his classroom door, so I’m sharing a back to school session we did last weekend.  We went out to our favorite field and had some fun!

Hope you had a great week!  xoxo

meet the teacher | san diego child photographer

Class lists were posted last night and Brooks found out he will have the wonderful Mrs. S. as his Kindergarten teacher.  I couldn’t be happier!  He has many friends in class and so many amazing families!

This morning was such an exciting time for Brooks, he got to visit the class with all the other new students to meet the teacher!  We are both looking forward to a very fun year!

Now he’s off to sleep, but not before we read ‘The Kissing Hand’ … a back to school favorite.  I know tomorrow will be a great first day of school!   xoxo

san diego child and family photographer | San Diego CA Newborn, Child, Senior & Family Portrait Photographer | Jules Trandem Photography - [...] Today our theme is simple.  When I think about simple, the first thing that comes to mind is the simple magic of childhood.  For Brooks that involves one of his favorite parts of his kindergarten day … the class mascot … Corduroy.  It’s amazing how something so simple as this little bear could bring such magic and joy to my child.  He truly believes that Corduroy is alive.  Thank you sooooo much Mrs. S. for bringing so much happiness to my little kindergartener.  (Here is a fun set of Brooks from the morning he met his wonderful K teacher.) [...]
