This Irvine photo session was actually a multi-generational session. However, there are just WAY too many pics for me to choose from for one post! So, I thought I would start with this sweet Mom, Dad and baby boy. This was my first time meeting this family, and I was in love! They were all so sweet (and naturally photogenic) that they made my job easy! Here are a few of my favs…
I’ve known Jeff and Jennie since college. Just like my husband and I, they have been together since the good ‘ol CSULB days! :) We love their entire family so much, and we were all so excited about this special photo session at Disneyland. Then, they were suddently hit with a health scare. We thought we might have to postpone this session until a later time. Happily, things turned around and we were able to make it happen! It made the day even more special than we could have imagined, and we were all very grateful to be together…in good health (we may have even gotten a little emotional in the middle of Toon Town)! Below are some of my favorite memories from the day.
This PJ photo session was just the cutest! These friends had me giggling the entire time along with them. Cute pjs, adorable kiddos and a fun set-up…whose ready for some PJ Mini Sessions??? Click on one of the following links to reserve your spot!
This was our first session together. All Mom wanted was some images of her son kissing her belly. All he wanted was to play with his trucks. :) I’m happy to say we got photos of them both! Here are a few of my favorites…
This family is always so much fun!!! I’ve known the Dad since High School, and I think it’s fair to say he hates taking photos! :) HOWEVER, we always manage to have a ton a laughs and our time together goes by way too quickly (at least for me). Thanks for another great afternoon S Family!!! XO
This session didn’t start off very smooth because we got kicked out of our first location! Ahhhh!!! After my mini anxiety attack, we found an even better place. Even the kids were happier with our new spot. :) Somehow, someway, everthing came together and this session turned out to be one of my all-time favorites! I love every single one of these images. Thank you to this beautiful family for trusting me with turning a bad situation into an amazing session. XO!
It’s time for the Best of 2017 Photo Contest! It’s been so hard narrowing down my favorites from this past year. There actually is no rhyme or reason for why these images were chosen. Some make me laugh and other are just special to me because I’ve watched these kids grow up in front of my lens (and I get emotional… like I’m their wierd Aunt who gets to see and gush over them once a year)!!! I’ve honestly loved every session, and these 25 photos just make my heart happy…

When you have a job that allows you to catch up with a friend from high school once a year, you realize you have an amazing job. Oh, and when you have a session with multiple fountains and only one kid falls in, you realize it was a great session! :)
This was the first time I met this family, and I kind of fell in love with them. They were so sweet and I just love how much they loved each other. I have way too many favorites, so I apologize in advance for the over-share! :)
A huge, crazy, emotional, mushy THANKYOU to all who came out for my first-ever Mini Sessions in my NEWSTUDIO! Opening a studio is a dream…not one I was ever sure I’d ever really be ready to commit to. BUT, I took the plunge, and our first photo sessions were a success. I didn’t have much yet…one chair to sit on, nothing up on the walls, and I was worried that I wasn’t ready. As soon as I saw all of your smiling faces, I felt the love though. It was so much fun to welcome you all to my new space (one that I hope to have more furniture in soon), and photograph your littles! :) Thank you all for your love during our Valentine’s Day Mini Sessions!
