Kyle's Newborn Photos - Orange County Newborn Photographer

It’s such a privilege to help document a family’s special moments through the years, and I especially love when a new baby is added into the mix!  Baby Kyle is just perfect.  He is one lucky little guy to already have so much love surrounding him. In fact, he has just about the cutest big sister I’ve ever seen, and I’m sure she will keep him entertained as he grows up!  Thank you so much to the entire family for having me over!  I hope you enjoy your pics.  :)

Waiting For Baby - Costa Mesa Maternity Photographer

What could be better than having two super fun, loving parents?  Adding a little sister to the family of course!!!  It’s no secret that I love little Miss Charlotte (how could I not?), and I just can’t wait until I get to see her giving her little sister lots of hugs and kisses!  Here are a few pictures from a fun afternoon catching up with this amazing family and capturing such a special time in their lives…

Aiden - Orange County Newborn Photographer

Newborn photos are always special, but taking Aiden’s was extra sweet.  Let’s just say that he is nothing short of a miracle baby.  On top of that, he is one of the cutest baby boys I have ever seen!  I hope his family enjoys these photos for many years to come.  Much love to the entire fam!!!

Laguna Beach Family Session - Laguna Beach Photographer

So, you know how on Top Chef if they are behind in creating their dishes, they say they are ‘in the weeds’.  Well, when it comes to blogging my sessions I am definitely in the weeds!  I have so many fun sessions to share, and first up is this beautiful family celebrating their baby boy’s first birthday.  Well, I guess he is not technically a baby anymore (although if Mom reads that she may just cry)!  A big thank you to this fam for a great evening in one of my favorites spots!!!

Newborn Photo Session - Ladera Ranch Photographer

Lately whenever my daughter really likes someone she says she is ‘crushing on them’.  Well, I was definitely crushing on this family a few weeks ago when I finally had the chance to meet their new baby girl!  She is beautiful, just like her big sis!!!  I love watching families grow and expand throughout the years, and having the privilage to document these special moments for them…

Kindergarten!

Our little girl started Kindergarten today!  I have to say that both Dylan and I have been nothing but excited about the new ‘big kids school’.  However, when we got there everything seemed SO big all of a sudden.  The bell started chiming and huge kids started runnning by with backpacks that were even bigger than they were.  I heard a little voice say ‘Mommy, I’m nervous’.  Gulp.  That made two of us.

Thank goodness the first day parents were aloud to tag along.  After about 30 seconds in her classroom, Dylan was feeling right at home.  In fact, I could tell that she REALLY loved it!  Her favorite activity was the math table.  So happy, because let’s just say that coloring isn’t really her thing (notice I didn’t take a picture of her drawing).  :)  We like already made shapes instead!

Seeing Dylan excited and happy to be at her new school made it seem not so big by the end of the day.  Wishing everyone a very happy school year, and please wish us luck with our first drop-off day tomorrow.  :)

Back to School - Ladera Ranch Photographer

Back to School Minis were so much fun this year!  I offered them to past clients for free as a big THANK YOU for allowing me to capture their most precious moments over the past few years.  First up…adorable Ace.  I’m thinking he’s going to melt some little girls’ hearts someday (and how cute is he in his little fedora???).  :)

Newport Beach Family Session - Orange County Photographer

A newport beach photo session filled with tons of laughing, running, and balloons?  Yes, please!  Oh, and I got to see a friend from high school, too!!!  I had the best time with this amazing family, and Mom and Dad are definitely Super Parents!  Raising four sweet kids that listen so well and love each other so much…that calls for a gold medal, right???  It was great to see you all, and I hope you enjoy your pics.  :)

Family Photo Time! - Ladera Ranch Family Photographer

I love (LOVE) so many photos from this session, so I am going to keep this short and sweet and just say a huge THANK YOU to this family for trusting me with this location (and putting up with 100 million gnats that seemed to swarm around us the entire time)!  You made the afternoon so much fun, and I always have a great time whenever I get to see you.  I hope you enjoy your pics!  :)

A Day at the Beach

I have a pretty strict rule when it comes to photos at the beach…no mid-day sessions…it’s just too bright!  Well, if you know Sarah, then you know that she doesn’t really give up when she hears the word ‘no’.  :)  She was determined to take some family pics by the beach, but baby Brooklan just doesn’t stay up until sunset hour.  What to do?  Well, let’s just say Sarah won this one, and I’m so glad she did as these ended up being some of my favs!!!
