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!

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!!!!!

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.

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.


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!

ahhhh the field! {orange county photographer}

I truly LOVE this spot! Its just right for a family shoot!

I loved the ages of thew kids too… one set going off on their own and now they get to do it all over again…

I suppose we really are forever parents anyway, this family physically.

I loved the light this night and juts the softness of the images just makes me happy!

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.
