San Juan Capistrano Maternity Session - Orange County Photographer

The morning of this maternity session was gloomy and rainy, but you would never know it by these pics and Holland’s bright smile!  The sun came out and this beautiful mama-to-be was just just glowing as we celebrated her baby bump with a few precious photos.  Here are some of my favorites…

Three-Month Baby Session - Orange County Baby Photographer

I haven’t photographed a 3-month-old in some time, and I forgot how fun these sessions are.  Sophia was so cute with her big eyes and little facial expressions.  I think she surprised herself when she pushed up on her tummy (and her arm rolls are the cutest around)!  It was great to capture some of these sweet moments for such a great family.  Here are a few favorites…

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.  :)

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.  :) 

Special thanks to:
