orange circle and the circle of life {orange county family photographer}

October 24th, 2014 , Posted in family | Comments (0)

This family is very dear to me. I have known the mom even before she met the love of her life, photographing her and her brother.

Then I photographed their wedding , both boys as newborns , and every year since.

This is where they met, Chapman University. Naturally as they do live in Orange, this would be the most fitting place to photograph them.

This means something to them and THAT is what I LOVE!!!!!

We had fun walking around as I stood in the street at times “getting the shot” as well as getting popsicles.

I laughed as Mom had her brother come with his little one (to do a few shots for grandma) As someone said…

“oh I did not know she herded cats too”  hahaha! Sorta like that with 3 little ones you want to get looking at you for the shot.

I thought that was funny and I will have to use that phrase again!

I hope that I documented just enough of the beautiful Orange circle that you are so fond of!

Loving this area lately! Especially with these antique boats the lifeguards have hanging out.

Was so happy to see this family again… sometimes when kids get older I don’t see them EVERY year.

They added a cute puppy to the family, so it was a fun addition to the shoot for sure!

I loved the end of the shoot when they wanted to play basket ball with dad as this is something they do all the time.

I love to do shoots when it is something that is who they are, it just completes the whole session.


lauren and dean – love these kids! {orange county family photographer}

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 and I love getting to meet new families  who come to me thru forever clients who tell their friends about me.

Word of mouth is the best! I just loved these twin boys… so sweet so much energy. We laughed a lot!

How blessed to have to big sisters to hang out with and how fun for them to watch them grow up.

Totally photogenic all of them.  Loved all their outfits!



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!


fast fwd 2 years {orange county family photographer}

September 23rd, 2014 , Posted in beach, family | Comments Off

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!!!!

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!

another year with such a great family {orange county family photographer}

Maggie and I were just taking as I was editing these shots yesterday… That I really think all of my clients look so good in their photos.

I dont manipulate (at all unless you ask for it) to make everyone look great… I think I just have amazing clients.

This family has NEVER taken a bad shot… I think that they should work for commercials.

The kids laugh with me every time… I just love them!!!!!


family of girls {orange county family photographer}

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!
