amazing sky {orange county photographer}

December 2nd, 2014 , Posted in beach, family | Comments Off

I know getting 3 little ones together to do a photo session is not easy.

But everything was totally in our favor this night. The tide was so low ( the best time to be down there for sure)

as well as the sky was over the top!!! I just LOVE this family So much! These girls are SOOOO in love with their daddy. Jax is just crazy for his momma.

These kids for being this little, are some of the  BEST behaved kids I know. So fun to get to photograph them every year!

Love you Bruce family!

Its that time of year when we get them together for a session to do some awesome Christmas cards.

This time just the kids to their beach for a quick shoot.

I love getting to photograph them because mom says this is the only time they LOOK like they like each other.

But I know deep down they do. Thats how it is when you have tweens and teens.

Who really liked their siblings then? You know they are annoying. That is what I hear all day long.

“MOM he is annoying me” Or vise versa.

I think they look so sweet here!!!

cool bus to complete the so cal family {orange county family photographer}

Well what can I say here … other than I love this bus and this family. I was SO excited when they said “well we have an old bus that we want to use”

So I naturally said “well lets just focus the whole shoot around the bus?” Because really….if you have a car that cool you NEED to!!!

I know my kids really want us to get one. Being an old VW bug driver for years, I do have to say that you miss it.

The smell… only old VW peeps know as well as the hot feet from the heater.

Makes me laugh all the funny things I had to do sometimes to the engine to get it to start.

So here is to a cool family… a cool bus and some cool lifestyle photography to add to your memories!

What BEAUTIFUL skies we had for their beach shoot!

I was so happy as this was the day it rained a bit in Laguna… well the skies could have not been more spectacular!

I know this family is just LOVING this weather… newly transplanted for the UK sought me out to do their family photos.

I look forward to seeing you all agin soon!

Hard to imagine these to tiny tiny sweet babies are running around {and I am sure into everything!}

I remember coming over to their home 2 years ago around this time getting to photograph them like this….

AHHHH sooooo sweet these 2 cuddled up together like this. How sweet are they?

So fast fwd to the next shot {wow} time flies!!!

So this location was so special to this family because a few years before these 2 arrived was the other happiest day in their lives…

This is where they got married. How special to sit there with their kids and share that moment of them hugging.

Beautiful light and gorgeous location… the beach is amazing!!!

Thank you for sharing this with me!!!!

Our paths finally crossed and was able to see this family for a photo session.

It truly has been amazing down at the beach lately.

I am so blessed not only to get to meet new families ( that have lots of connections to my friends- small world we live in)

But I get to go to work ( if you call it work-I don’t:)) in some of the most beautiful places around.

I think wow people travel here and pay a lot of $$$ to do so… what a short drive to paradise!

Here we are once again with one of my favorite families. So photogenic they are.

This was on monday the week of the giant waves…. watching them  crash on the beach was so amazing.

We are lucky we live here.

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!

These 3 boys were hilarious…and fun to work with. I am sure knowing boys this age it was the last thing they wanted to do was get senior images done. BUT they really were good sports. I know someday they will look back and be so happy they did this.

I also thought how fun it was to get your best friends together and do it all in one day. This was great getting their real smiles as I could only imagine what they were doing behind me to each other to get the one in front of the camera to laugh.

So here is to long lasting friendships and college!
