Scarlett - Orange County Newborn Photographer

I first met this family when they asked my to take pictues of their baby girl Violet.  I can’t believe how quickly time goes by as Violet is now a big sister!  Meet Scarlett.  She is simply beautiful.  Surrounded by the love of an older brother, sister, Mom and Dad…Scarlett is welcomed into this family with much love.  I can’t wait to see the friendships that grow between her and her siblings through the years.  :)

Spring Is Here! - Orange County Family Photographer

I really LOVED everything about this session.  The family was amazing, the colors were beautiful, and I’m always such a sucker for those yellow flower fields!  It is definitely Springtime, and sessions like these just make me happy.

Friday Random Thoughts

My business usually slows down a bit after the holiday season, but this year was the first time that didn’t happen.  I recently told Ty that I haven’t had a couple of days off in way too long when, mid-complaint, I was reminded just how lucky I am!!!  When I started this photography business I used to practically BEG people to let me take their photos, and now my schedule is filled with sessions!  For that, I am truly grateful.  I just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone for their support.  I have the best clients/friends in the world!!!

On a completely separate note, this is an iphone pic of my daughter on her way to gymnastics class.  Wish I could rock a star unitard, princess glasses, and sparkly shoes with her confidence!  I just love how kids know how to have fun no matter where they are.   She definitely brings out the silly in me.  :)

I hope everyone has a great Easter weekend!  I still haven’t taken Dylan to see the Easter bunny.  Am I the only Mom left in the world that hasn’t done this yet???  Well, I hope we can all enjoy some time with our families this weekend and embrace the fun!!!  Heck, maybe I’ll even wear a unitard.  :)

Lisa Rinna's Birthday Bash

Once upon a time I was invited to photograph the best party in the world…Lisa Rinna’s birthday party!!!  I’m going to admit that I’m an avid TV watcher, so photographing some of hollywood’s biggest stars was a dream come true for me.  :)  As I watched Lisa’s home fill up with family and friends that obviously love her so much, it made me extremely happy to capture these moments for her.  Thanks again to Ninie (a.k.a. The Sprinkler) for asking me to be there, and to Lisa’s entire family for allowing me to step into their world for one very special night.  :)

Best of 2013 Contest!!!

So far 2014 has been hectic to say the least.  We started off the year by moving, and while there are still more boxes in our garage than I’d like to admit, we are finally feeling at home.  :)  However, just as we started to settle in I got this nasty cold that is going around (I suspect a very cute little Kindergartener gave it to me).  So, while I am behind, I cannot completely ignore my yearly ‘Best of’ Contest.  So, it is finally time to vote for your favorite image of 2013!!!

This year, the winner of the Best of 2013 Contest will win a (drumroll, please)….

FREE SPING MINI-SESSION on March 29, 2014 in Orange County *INCLUDING 12 DIGITAL IMAGES*!!!

Here is how to win:

1)  Go to the Heidi Bolles Photography Facebook page (www.Facebook.com/HeidiBollesPhotography)

2)  Click on the album ‘Best of 2013’ to vote for your favorite image of 2013.

3)  For a vote to count, you must first be a fan of the Heidi Bolles Photography Facebook page and then leave a ‘Comment’ about the photo.  Each comment will count as a vote (only one vote per person/per photo). ‘Liking’ a photo will NOT count as a vote.

4)  Ask your friends and family to vote and help increase your chances of winning (they must complete both steps in #3 for their votes to count).

5)  Voting will end on February 12th at midnight.  The person/family in the winning photo will win the contest and the free photo session.  The free photo session must be used during the 2014 Spring Mini Day (March 29th) to be valid and is good for their immediate family only.

Pilates with Holly - Orange County Photographer

Have you been keeping up your New Year’s resolutions?  I have been…well trying…okay not really.  BUT, if you are looking for someone to help you reach your fitness goals…call my friend Holly…she is AMAZING!  She teaches private and semi-private Pilates classes in Laguna Niguel, and prides herself on really helping her clients stay fit and healthy (while having fun)!  I was honored when she asked me to take some updated photos of her in action for her website.  Yes, she is also in amazing shape herself, but don’t worry…I tortured her a little by making her hold each pose for about 10 minutes to make sure I ‘got it’.  :)  

Check out her work at:  www.HollyHamel.com or http://hollyhamelpilates.blog.com

Sweet Baby Penelope - Orange County Newborn Photographer

It’s no secret that I have loved this family and their little girl Charlotte for years now (her personality reminds me a lot of my own little girl)!  So when they told me they were having another baby girl I was ecstatic…especially when I saw Charlotte’s smile as she told me she was going to have a baby sister!!!  Here she is…beautiful Penelope.  :)
