Meet Miss “E”!

As a followup to the maternity session I organized last month with my group of local photogs, here is the newborn session for that same family!  A few of the same photographers met up again to welcome two week old Miss "E" and family (including big sister "A").  For some reason, I couldn’t help myself . .  this session just looked soooo good in black and white!  I am posting one color, and the rest in B&W because I just love it!!



Baby, You’re a Star!

Calling all diaper clad cuties . . . who would love to be in an advertising campaign!  I’m excited to announce that I will be collaborating with a Southern California cloth diaper service, Dy-Dee Diaper Service, to provide images of babies in cloth diapers for their new and upcoming advertising.  I need to act fast!  I need around 4 models!! Babes can be from Thousand Oaks down to Covina, or San Diego County.  If you have a babe who fits the requirements or know of someone who might be interested, please email me with your information at !

Model requirements:

  • Approximately 3 to 18 months old
  • or newborn (only one slot available)
  • At least one sitter/crawler
  • Willing to wear cloth diapers!
  • Loves the camera ;-)
  • Available the 3rd week of September
  • May include travel to a central location for a group shot

Please send me the following information for our potential model stars: 

  • Name
  • Age in months
  • Ability to crawl and/or sit
  • Any recent photo
  • Your location
  • Availability for the third week of September 2007
  • Please email this information to . Submissions with ALL information included will be considered first.

Our advertiser is Dy-Dee Diaper Service "the only CLOTH Diaper delivery service in the Los Angeles/Orange County area".  Dy-Dee Diaper Service deliveres fresh cloth diapers to your door every week.  Personally, I have become very pro-environment over the past several years as my awareness grows, so this is the perfect match-up for me.  As an alternative to filling up our landfills with disposable diapers, switching to cloth diapers is just one step to helping save our childrens’ future environment! 

You will be notified if your babe is selected for the campaign.  All models chosen will need guardians to sign a release form for Dy-Dee Diaper Service and Marlo Yoshimoto Photography, so that the images can be selected and used in the campaign at our discretion.  The chosen babies will be given the free session and a complimentary 8×10 from Marlo Yoshimoto PhotographyDy-Dee Diaper Service has also offered to donate 6 months of free cloth diaper delivery service for the lucky models in the areas where they service! (Dy-Dee will also donate to those models outside their service area – donation TBA)

Good luck to all our potential models! 

A Very Merry 2007

I am so excited to announce that this year I will be offering at least 34 different templates for Holiday cards!!  I just couldn’t narrow them down any further, so I decided to offer them all!  I have samples of of the cards in an album that you can browse through to the right. Look for A Very Merry 2007 Collection Album.  My business logo watermarks of course will not be on the finished product, but I put them there for protection of my clients, the designers, and my product.  The best thing about the templates is that they are completely customizable as far as the wording and some of the colors!

Currently I’m working on editing a few more sessions to get caught up. There are also some exciting new changes coming up for my business.  I have a brand new website that I’m working on with a site for weddings and one for portraits, as well as a brand new logo that I’m having designed.  I will still have my blog where I will post updates, contests and sneakpeeks . . .but the website will be the main area where you can look for session information, my full portfolio, pricing, and my schedule!  I’m anxious to get it all published so you can all see!

And if that isn’t enough to keep me busy . .. .the local group of photographers that I organize will be shooting a newborn session this weekend.  A follow up to the maternity workshop that we had last month.  We will also be collaborating with Ana Brandt once again for a newborn workshop since newborns are so rare!

Stay tuned for more updates with MYP!
