We are lucky we live here.

So happy to have gotten the oportunity to finally photograph this beautiful family!

Dad had bought a gift card YEARS ago and you know how it is… life gets busy…

Well here we are long time coming. This happens to be their 1st ever real family photo shoot for the sake of just doing it.

I can’t tell you how many people I run into who say the same thing…. “we need to get family photos taken!”

well its never too late I say and they will always be your babies!

What a fun place to walk around. Bringing back memories of living there in my 20′s with 3 girls in a tiny back house.

I always joke that I can parallel park anything from living there.

I love these boys and like I say, I am so blessed to have clients for life. Getting to know these kids for years and watching them grow

is so rewarding to me. Thankful daily for them and my wonderful job.

It felt so all American there this day. Shortly after 4th of July all the flags still up just gave it that summer feel even more.

What a night! Trying to keep dry from the high tides. We had to get the shoot done as this family was here on vacation and

we have had high tides all that week. Besides that the sky was amazing and this family has been wanting a beach shoot and

what better spot than this one?

Beautiful kids that totally love the beach… kids just want to draw in the sand…. This is why I don’t rush things and I give time for play. Here is to being a kid!


one of each {orange county newborn/family photographer}

This big brother was so happy to see me… we became buddies right away.

I always say that kids are like dogs they know when you like them and know if you are real or not.

Not forcing toddlers to sit still and do this or do that. Knowing when they have had enough so that they will cooperate is definitely

a gift for sure. I always give way enough time for playing as there is no way they are going to sit still the whole time… besides who wants that?

So here we go… got exactly what mom wanted out of this day.

I know i left and got the same old thoughts ” well that was a disater”  They did not listen at all etc.

I am so happy for them… having one of each and this sweet chubb a bub having a big brother to always protect her!

I honestly could not wait to get into editing these photos… What a great shoot, so full of love this family I tell ya!

I couldn’t wait to meet this little one. From the day I first met them at their beach shoot last year.

I told them don’t forget about me when this new one comes along! Well here she is, and all but a week old too!

How blessed is she to have a big sister who just adores her. Talk about the best helper too!

Oh I am just so thrilled to have met you all and so thankful to be able to document these most important times!

I love this family.

I look forward to when they come to the USA to visit, as I get to photograph them.

I have said this many time before that I know that God has gifted me with this great career

and if it was not for Him I would certainly not be where I am today.

I have had way to many things happen in this biz that CLEARLY was all from the Lord.

They are missionaries in a small town outside London, and have been for all the years I have known them.

They are originally from here and are connected to Calvary  Costa Mesa.

I know that they look forward to coming here on “holiday” to eat the “gorgeous” food here, and enjoy the “lovely” weather.

Some day I would love to visit them… but for now I am just blessed to get to serve them a bit while they are here!


what a FUN gift for these beautiful dancers { orange county photographer}

What a great gift for this age. Something to remeber their time of life at 13.

I was so excited when the moms wanted to do this for them as a gift. I knew I had the perfect location for them.

They brought lots of fun things to wear and looked perfect for the location. You know this is just what they want to do…

Especially in the times of the selfie…  well beat this with a selfie!

I can’t wait to email them to see this blog post as they have patiently waited.

Girls… I wish the best for you in your adventures in dancing may you both go off to do something wonderful.

You both are So talented and beyond beautiful inside and out!






going for 4 I hear… { orange county family photographer}

I just love this family…. busy as they are they really love their kids and are great parents.

I hear that they want to have a huge family… good for me as I get to photograph them a few times a year YIPEE!!!

I know that mom always says that was a disaster before I leave and think her kids were crazy. I always assure her that kids are kids they all are the same

at that age and I know and remember feeling that same way. I have some of the most hilarious stories of my kids going crazy and being SO embarrassed!

Only if I could go back to that time…. ahhh I think I would have just stood back and laughed.

So here is to the little ones no matter how many they are ALL SO precious to me!

This was fun to do… gender reveal with bubblegum. It was hard to find blue gum (my husband ran that errand for me and got bazooka)

however it was not the best bubble blower.

Sorry mom and dad lets just blame that one on my husband :) They are always good scapegoats (haha)

Any how… so you can tell in the 2nd shot its a GIRL!
What fun these 2 girls will have growing up sisters. I am excited for them. To grow up with a sister is every girls wish that does not have one.

I suppose in my case, I am blessed with all my girlfriends whom I consider sisters.

So here is to 2 of every doll every shoe and every thing big sister gets!
