mom and her boy {orange county photographer}

July 21st, 2013 , Posted in family | Comments Off

Long ago when this boy was a baby I got to photograph him. He has grown a lot since t last time I saw him. He is SO handsome… obviously gets his looks from his mom!

we went to a lake near their home that is really sentimental to them and had to add in the new puppy they have gotten.

It was hilarious trying to keep lil puppy in the carrier when it was not her turn to be in the photos. She would paw her self to roll over to us. Talk about loving your owners.

I love all my families big or small they all make me smile when I am editing them… sometimes I catch myself with a big grin in the morning as I am staring at the computer.

I think no one is here with me just my clients I am looking at and me grinning away at my computer.  (hehe)

This family has a super special place in my heart. I have been photographing them for ever.

I can’t tell you how many AMAZING families that have grown on me thru the years.

I get so sentimental sometimes when I look back at far I have come, thru this great talent God has given me.

I am forever thankful to ALL my loyal clients… with out you I would not be where I am today.

When I booked this shoot it was for a newborn baby girl and her family… and that is just what it was… however Mr. personality was just as much a star of the show this day as baby sister. Talk about personality! While mom was feeding baby we must have chatted about everyhting.

And SMART… that he is :) What a great shoot it was and yes of course we got lots of new baby sister… She is going to be crazy in love with her big brother this I can totally see!  Now one of each one boy one girl. How great that is.

happy to see this family! {orange county photographer}

What a wonderful surprise it was to see this family again! I can remember when big brother was just a lil guy and their shoot at the beach was one of my all time favs!

So sweet to see brother and sister so loving to one another! ( could you come over and rub some of that off on my kids?)

Beautiful night, beautiful lighting that afternoon too! I love this time of year seems the sun is just a little bit more golden too.

Here is to family love… family bonding and just being together!





beautiful girls {orange county photographer}

I was so happy to finally get to photograph this family in whole… including the dog even!

These girls are so easy to photograph. So beautiful and oh…. those perfect smiles.

I know that mom has been wanting to do a shoot with me for awhile now and I am so pleased with it

as well as how amazing it looks in the park we used.

Now with all this rain we had the last few days it should perk up and get a bit greener as well as a few more flowers to pop up!

I hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed seeing you all together and how happy you all are as a family.


brotherly love {orange county photographer}

There is something so sweet about 2 brothers. They will always have a forever friend. No matter how mean kids at school can be… you always have that one guy you can count on who will love you no matter what. That is just why I think there are brothers.

I was too honored that this family drove ALL the way from Lancaster to see me! I said “oh are you visiting family while you are here?” she says NO…

That made my day!

 Thank you so much for thinking of Me to do this documenting for you… Such an honor!


I love to see boys loving their moms… and boys just LOVE their mommies so much!

what do you get when you take a 2 year old boy to the park? A work out. Yes lots of running around and chasing. They certainly are not going to stand there and smile for you. NOPE.

These sessions are all about peek a boo… I am gonna get you’s, and this lil one likes the fake sneezes. Too cute :)  This lil guy LOVES his basket ball and is truly ALL boy 100%

We did good considering the park was so crowded with people being it was the 1st day of great weather weekend of the year.

I really hope in my later years this is something I can still do. I suppose keeping fit and strong is the only option!

Here is to this lil boy… funny, sporty, busy and happy!


sweet family {orange county photographer}

I had the honor of photographing this beautiful family a week ago… Their kids go to school with mine and have known them from around school for quite sometime. I always see mom dropping off, and say hello… so it was nice that when they were in need of a photographer they called me.

This was a very special photo shoot as soon Ava ( the lil one in the bunch) will be going thru chemo and possibly loose her hair. I know… its hard to say, let alone believe someone you know that is so active and healthy, has cancer. Not one day goes by where she is not on my mind.

Every night my family and I lay in our bed together and pray for her. She is a fighter and certainly going to beat this. She has an amazing family so full of love, and constant support that she will be herself in no time. So here is to you Ava… your a fighter… strong, full of joy. I know that one day you will look back at this time and know the whole “why” of it all. I know that you have certainly touched my life… made my heart bigger just by knowing you.

God bless you all!



A long time coming…. {orange county photographer}

Its been quite a few ( maybe 5-6) years now that we have talked about doing a family photo shoot with ALL 5 of them in the photos. Well it finally happened! I always say just book it far enough ahead so that you all know this is the date and we are DOING IT!!!

Well Evan is off to college now. I cant believe  it… seems like yesterday he was just at middle school! Time flies too fast. here I go again saying that   uggh!!!!

I am so thrilled that we were able to get this done as well as Evan’s senior photo shoot at the same time. It was a beautiful day as well as you cant beat the mission. Its always amazing there. One of my favorite spots to shoot :)

When Angeli called to book a shoot for her whole family since it had been…. {one of the kids said since they were 9 years old,}

I was so happy to be the one to do it for them.

I have known Angeli before I had kids in the days where my husband who is friends with her used to play golf together.

I miss those days…. With life so busy we all don’t get to play much I am sure. Speaking of busy how fun is having 3 grand daughters!!!

I hear that their favorite place is American girl store, what grandma can resist spoiling these 3 sweet ones in such a fabulous store.

Any how… family is what it is all about. I hope that I have given you great memories together on this day.

I had to add… Angeli had mentioned that her son was a photographer… I was ok ( isn’t everyone these days?)

Well all I have to say is WOW. WOW. WOW. I was more than impressed looking at his blog I just have to share.

I have to say how inspired I was, how beautifully he see things and it really made me think that I need to shoot for myself again.

Thank you for having me document this time for you all when TRULY you could have had anyone do this for you all and you chose me.

So thank you!!!!
