Chatterton Family – Orange County Photographer

Growing up in Michigan I always had an image in my head of what “California” people looked like… basically very beautiful, very blonde and striking blue eyes. Now that’s not to say that everyone out here looks like that, but there are certainly those people that fit the bill. And the Chattertons fit that to a tee.

This is my second time shooting this family… the last time was two years ago at the Lab in Costa Mesa which has a very urban, very cool vibe to it. But this shoot feels so much different. With the long grasses and the beautiful light… it just seems to fit the beauty of this family so well.

Thanks so much Chatterton Family!!

Munson Family – Orange County Photographer

This family is simply awesome. I’ve been photographing them as their family has grown since little Presley was one. And now she’s four. AND now she has the cutest little sister, Reagan.

The best thing about these guys is that they are so chill. They always go into our shoots relaxed and ready for anything. And I can tell you from experience, that is a huge accomplishment when you have two little ones under the age of 5!

And these two little ones… just scroll down to see how adorable they both are. And those eyes! We only had an hour to shoot at the San Juan Capistrano Mission, but we ended up with some great shots (and we even got some with everyone looking at the camera, Tiff!). 🙂

Thanks Munson Family!!! You guys rocked it!

Swanson Family – Orange County Photographer

I think my friend Nicki and I figured out that this was our sixth or seventh shoot together? How crazy is that? The coolest thing is that Nicki has been so diligent about getting prints ordered and hanging up so many of the images of her family over the years. It’s so great to have them up, on the walls to see everyday. (PSA: print your images, people! I promise you won’t regret it!). 🙂

Nicki and Aaron decided to sit this one out this year, so I was able to focus just on these two awesome teens. Shane is still very much into hockey and Kylie is still rocking it in dance. And every year I get to take a quick snapshot of them showing how much they love doing what they do.

Whenever I shoot these two it’s like I’m shooting my own kids… this family is our family. And it makes it all the more fun. And just like with my own kids, I can’t seem to grasp how quickly these two are growing up!

And be sure to look for the newest addition to the Swanson family this year! Their sweet new puppy Molly!

Thanks Swanson Family! Love you all! xoxo

Schaffer Family – Orange County Photographer

Family photo shoots are stressful. For the parents. I get this. Oh how I get this.

I have many clients that choose to only have their kids in the photos every other year. Which takes the pressure and stress off of everyone. And these shoots end up being lots of fun and super relaxing – especially for the moms! 🙂

This shoot was one of those fun and relaxing ones. I’ve been shooting this family for a few years now and this year is was Elizabeth’s and Rebecca’s day to shine. And shine they did!  They always make my job so easy. They are so much fun and they both have a wicked sense of humor which always makes for such a fun shoot. These two bring out the best in each other and it’s always a blast to see.

Thanks Schaffer girls!

Gillman Family – Orange County Photographer

To say this was a fun shoot would be an understatement… this is a family that knows how to have a good time! They are constantly laughing and cracking up at each others’ jokes. And you have to give props to Mom Michele… the only girl in a household of boys. And I can tell you that she holds her own with no problem whatsoever! 🙂

It was a special shoot for the family since their oldest, Jake, will be off to college next Fall. It’s so great that they captured this special time in their lives before he leaves the nest. Stay tuned for Jake’s senior session to come next Spring (can’t wait!).

Thanks Gillman family!!! xoxo
