Featured Story: JD – Watch Me Grow (La Mirada Newborn Photographer)

Joy wanted a simple maternity session. She wasn’t really wanting to dress up like she had the last time and was feeling tired and more sore than before. If you’ve been pregnant while caring for a toddler you totally get just wanting to stay home and put your jammy pants back on and cuddle up with your little one.


She just wanted to make sure to have some pictures to document this moment, this pregnancy. I really don’t remember if it was her idea or mine but I know that we both thought it was a good idea to do an in home maternity session.


About 3 weeks later, their adorable James Dean, III was here!

“My first thought was, I have a son! I can’t believe he is here!”


I just LOVE the stretching face! Isn’t he so cute?! And his eye lashes are ridiculous!!!


“Alaina captures the sweetest candid, real life moments. Nothing is posed so the true essence of our family and children are portrayed in the pictures. It’s so amazing to see in print.”


I’m so glad JD is one of my Baby Club/Milestone Plan babies like his sissy was! Because… rolly thighs, squishy cheeks and dimpled knuckles are the best!



Our children need us just as much as we need them since we were all given specific strengths and weaknesses. I asked Joy what characteristics her children have that she loves, she said, “Jordyn has such a zest for life! She is so friendly and happy and JD is my sweet boy with my husbands energetic personality, it’s fun to see them develop.”


I asked Joy to share about her business with you.

“I have always been in the health and fitness industry , but since having kids my drive to be at home became stronger, Joyful Fitness allows me to train my clients on my own schedule and spend time with my children.”

I’ve been going to Joy’s morning boot camp since November and I’m back in my pre-pregnancy jeans  but even better than that (though that’s a pretty awesome thing!), I don’t feel so tired all of the time and I know it’s not because I’m getting more sleep. 😉
