With 2 girls in the house you have to have 2 stars of the show. I really had a great time this shoot and getting to know big sister!

What a sweet little one she was. Oh their lighting in their home was {amazing}..

Love getting these newborn sessions in between the big kids.

It was so great meeting all of you and I hope to see you when we can run around the beach!

I love this family.

I look forward to when they come to the USA to visit, as I get to photograph them.

I have said this many time before that I know that God has gifted me with this great career

and if it was not for Him I would certainly not be where I am today.

I have had way to many things happen in this biz that CLEARLY was all from the Lord.

They are missionaries in a small town outside London, and have been for all the years I have known them.

They are originally from here and are connected to Calvary  Costa Mesa.

I know that they look forward to coming here on “holiday” to eat the “gorgeous” food here, and enjoy the “lovely” weather.

Some day I would love to visit them… but for now I am just blessed to get to serve them a bit while they are here!

 

all american girl {orange county photographer}

April 21st, 2014 , Posted in seniors, Uncategorized | Comments Off

This beautiful girl does it all and is going off to PITT this year for college!

I asked her just how do you do it? Varsity cheer, soccer AND  softball ( and a scholarship for softball!)

Gone are those days when you used to be able to do that. Remember all americans in high school? Those kids who played all the sports?

I was so happy to have met her and so proud of her and her accomplishments!

Not only is she amazing at sports but truly a beauty!  Her personality matches her looks too!

So here is to you !!! May all your dreams come true and may college life bring you all you hoped for!

 

 

sure grip and lululemmon {orange county photographer}

I love to roller skate. Ever since I was around 5  years old. I truly think its about time it makes a HUGE  come back, for many reasons. One is that it is great for your butt and outer thighs, its great cardio, and lets not forget FUN!!! I went last week with my 12 year old down bay shore 8 miles round trip. We stopped and had lunch then skated back. What a great time we had together as well as a great workout with out it being “work out bore”.

So…. a while ago sure grip hired me to do a shoot for roller derby which they supply skates wheel etc to that community. This time they wanted a new feel.

I totally agreed that roller skating needs to come back in as fitness. So I called my good friend who works a lululemon telling her we needed some

fit girls who are fun, who would fit what they are looking for.

We had a GREAT time. I loved being around them so much. They were hilarious and made me laugh the whole time. I can see how much fun they must have working together. Makes me want to work with them if I had some free time, I certainly would!

So…. if you want a pair of these amazing skates you can find them online suregrip.com or visit long beach roller sport on atlantic and bixby knolls. I am sure you all know where to get yourself some lululemon. You rarely find me NOT wearing it.

So here is to a new fun workout that you cant get sick of. Go for it!!!

 

 

 

quiet beach day {orange county family photographer}

What a pleasure it was to finally photograph this family! With all our busy schedules its hard to nail a time…. however I believe that once a year is so important to document your family. This is something no one ever regrets. EVER.

I loved the soft light in these shots. It was a great night down there no one around, makes it even better. Thank you for allowing me to give you great memories.

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.

It was so great to see this family after a few years! Its now time for sister to go off to high school!

She really is so beautiful and how great do they all look?

We had a good time here this day… I love to see families laugh together and you just know that they really have fun just being together.

Who cant resist the love between a mom and her son? That one just melted me.

I just love the mission. It truly is one of my fav places to shoot. Spring is always great here, however with all the garden angels

as they call the volunteers who tend to the gardens it pretty much stays nice all year.

The fee to shoot here is just $50 since I am a member. So if you are looking for that special place this just might be it!

I can tell you that it was SUCH a pleasure to get to photograph this sweet girl, who is soon going off to college, away from home. What a gift for mom to have this memory of her in her last times as a child.

I know for sure in my own case just the thought of my lil one going into 7th grade in 2.5 mo is mind boggling. I really dont know where the time goes?

One of my clients said that nowadays we are SO connected that many of us don’t shut down or turn off anymore. Meaning that we are constantly on our smart phones and emails texts for work. I know that I am to blame for this.

Long ago when it was the weekend we were off no contact with our work and vacations… vacations were a vacation. We did not have contact but only with those we are with. Ahhhhh beautiful were those days.

So that is my theory of where the time goes. I pray that my lil Emily will also go away to college like Kimmy… experience life away form home is good for all kids.

Thank you for choosing me to gather these times for you both. I truly loved this shoot and was SO blown away at her beauty inside and out.

Here are a few of my favs from a mini shoot I did last weekend.

Everyone looked so cute, and boy did some of these kids grow bigger since the last time I saw them!!! wow!

This was just done in my studio with a cute backdrop I made thanks to a few ideas i molded together on pinterest.

I love doing these as a filler for my clients in between their family sessions for the year.
