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!

I dont normally do “prop” shoots, as I love to make the focus the family, being together, and getting them interacting.

BUT I did think that the lemon field need a little “something.” Who better to do this with than this cute family?

ADORABLE all of them. Sweet brothers they are.

What a great spot… 1st time here and I am sure it wont be my last!!!


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

October 24th, 2014 , Posted in family | Comments Off

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}

October 1st, 2014 , Posted in beach, family | Comments Off

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!
