Pink Newborn Session - Orange County Newborn Photographer

I LOVE that Croft’s Mom had everything pink, girly and princess-like ready to go for this newborn session!  Beautiful Croft was surreounded by tiaras, tutus, a Princess and the Pea set-up and of course lots of love (including some kisses from one of their pups)!  Cher, it was so great to see you again!  Thanks for inviting me over.  You have two of the cutest kiddos I’ve ever seen!

Newborn Annistyn - Orange County Newborn Photographer

This little beauty was so sweet to photograph.  She was a great sleeper and gave us a few smiles along the way.  :)  In fact, the entire family couldn’t have been any nicer.  It was such a pleasure to meet you all!   Congratulations again and I hope you enjoy your images of your precious baby girl…

Irvine Family Photo Session - Orange County Photographer

I met one of the most fun families EVER this summer!  This was our first session together, and I’m so honored that they trusted me with not only their family photos, but also the images that now represent their business.  They own Snyder Law, which handles Trust and Estate Planning.  Feel free to take a look at their awesome new website here:  www.snyderlawpc.com

Thank you to the entire family for such a fun afternoon!  I wish you nothing but success with your business and I hope to see you all again soon.  :)

Addy Turns One!

I hadn’t seen Hilary since our college days.  It was so much fun to not only reconnect but also to finally meet her beautiful family!  Her daughter, Addy, will be turning one soon.  So, it was the perfect time to capture some special family moments and to celebrate this big milestone.  Oh, and scroll down to see the cutest Daddy-Daughter tea party ever!  Happy Birthday Addy Dawn!  :)

Long Beach Newborn Session - Orange County Newborn Photographer

I might quite possibly have a small obsession with this family, mainly because the Mom is super creative and always brings such fun ideas to our sessions!  Kristen even makes learning fun with her Long Beach-based tutoring company Kids Under Construction!  If it were up to us, the sessions would last all day as we would probably never stop talking and incorporating new props into the mix!  They recently added the sweetest little boy into their loving family.  His name is Grant, but also goes by the nickname ‘Little Tomato’ (incase you were wondering why he is holding a little red tomato in the last image).  :)  Here are some favorites from Grant’s newborn session…

San Juan Capistrano Family Photo Session - Orange County Photographer

This San Juan Capistrano family photo session definitey kept me on my toes.  Sweet Avalon was turning one, and her beautiful family wanted to document this precious time.  However, on the day of the session, Avalon was not feeling it.  It was absolutely a team effort to get those smiley and cuddly embraces we were hoping for.  The funny thing is that we ended up with so many great ones, and I have a ton of favorites from this gallery!  Sometimes I wish I had a video of all the behind-the-scenes jumping/singing/begging-for-smiles-craziness.  :)   Whatever we did, it was worth it!

San Juan Capistrano Family Photos - Orange County Photographer

Remember that little contest I have every year with a free session giveaway?  This family was the winner!  Admittedtly, the session didn’t start out so great.  In fact, about twenty minutes before we were supossed to start, I received a text saying their litle boy just threw up in the car, followed by a picture of him covered in what once was mac ‘n cheese (sorry for the visual)!  This Mom is amazing though.  She managed to find the same shirt at a nearby store and the entire family rallied for an amazing session!  Having known the Dad since high school, we were able to laugh and have fun (well, I know he doesn’t like having his picture taken, but I definitely had fun seeing them all again).  :)  What resulted were some of my new favorite images…

Irvine Newborn Photo Session - Orange County Newborn Photographer

When I showed up to photograph baby Rachel I knew right where to set up since I had photographed her big brother in the exact same spot just a couple of years ago!  It’s so surreal to watch these beautiful families grow…to document there first few days as a family.  Thank you G family for inviting me into your home once again.  Rachel is just perfect!

Sisters - Orange County Child Photographer

I have been photographing this amazing family since little Emmery was in her Mommy’s tummy!  This mini session was particularly fun because we were able to focus solely on the girls and capture them just as they are at this sweet age.  I love watching their sisterly love grow as they get older.  They are very lucky to have each other, and I’m very lucky to be able to photograph a little piece of their childhood.
