they really do love each other {orange county family photographer}

October 21st, 2014 , Posted in beach, children | Comments Off

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!!!

So yes I have been posting a lot of families here at this spot but how can you not choose this location?

I am on my way there again here in  a bit with a family I have photographed here just a few years ago.

I dont think you could ever do this whole place in one session. So much to do.

Lauren and Dean, its so wonderful to see you both grow into such sweet good kids.

I have known you both since you were brand new babies only a few weeks old. Now look at you? Getting SO BIG!!!

I treasure seeing you every time. We always have a fun time and you make me laugh as much I make you laugh.

I know when you are teenagers we will really get some good laughs in!

Love you all dearly!!!

I love how all children are filled with wonder… even if its the 1st time they held a certain flower.

I always think ” what goes thru their minds when they are discovering new things?”

I love this stage. 2 so adorable.

Lauren has this crinkly smile when she laughs or smiles with all he might. I love it!

I love this place as it changes all the time.

What a great spot for teenagers for sure! Or just a cool family who loves this sort of cool-ness :)

I am so glad that mom said yes to bringing sister along for big brothers senior shoot.

I love to see brothers and sisters together, especially at this age.

I had a great time getting to know you all!!! ENJOY!!!

How lucky to have a sister I always say….

I love going to clients homes when the kids are so little.I think they feel “at home” and more comfortable.

Here is big sister and little mini me of her having tea time…. TOO CUTE they are!

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.

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!

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!

What a perfect day for a really great family! I love to see how the kids interact with each other and I love getting to see what one year’s difference makes with little ones :)

Seems like yesterday I was there at their home meeting them all for the 1st time. The light was perfect as well as we lucked out shooting before the heat wave!

Here is to the perfect set up… one of each! what a great gift for sure.
