Bakersfield CA Newborn, Maternity & Wedding Photography | Jess Cadena » Wedding & Portrait Photography for Lovers, Expecting Moms, & Newborns.

The seasons have finally changed around here! Thank goodness too because I was starting to get anxious and crabby about it. Fall is my favorite time of year! It also means the sun sets earlier and I’m not interrupting your dinner dates as much, woo!

Ruiz family, it’s always a joy having you!

Erin & family, I’m still gushing over here, seriously! I loved meeting all of you and letting our littles play together. I’m putting in a request for another meet up in the near future, just so you know ;) Your family is beautiful in so many ways, especially in how much love you have for each other. Thank you for inviting me up to visit!

Erin is a photographer friend who I love and admire with all my heart, she’s incredible ♥ We met through my favorite photography community, Clickin Moms. After some planning through the year we met up just a few weeks ago in Kingsburg for session swapping!

I had the sweetest, grunty little man over just a few weeks ago! He’s got Mommy, Daddy & Grandma head-over-heals!

Axel, I had such a wonderful time during your first modeling photo shoot! Cuddling you, listening to your little grunts every time you wiggled around ♥ Don’t grow up too fast okay?! But if you have to, come over again so I can make memories of your little milestones ♥

While visiting in California this summer, Taniva booked a session for her, her fiancé, & her two beautiful girls. I think most of my time shooting was spent giggling over the littlest lady’s personality! She would sneak up on me, run off giggling, then she and her sister made beautiful little bouquets. I’d say it’s good practice for the Taniva & Ryan’s wedding :)

Have you ever wanted to play dress up for a day with your best friend in a beautiful place and just let loose? Well I have, and Sam & Cena have too! They took their friendship to an all new level of awesome when they packed up their wedding dresses in their car, drove 3 hours to Cambria & met with my husband and I for their Bridal session on the beach! We encountered super cold weather, a creepy tourist guy, and the most beautiful sunset ♥

If you ever want to do some damage in your gorgeous wedding dress on the beach, I’ll pack my bags in a heartbeat & meet you there!
