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

Lewis Family – Orange County Photographer

So…. this blogging thing has gotten the best of me. While I try to blog every single session, they always seem to get away from me. Especially during this crazy busy holiday season!

This family has been featured on this blog many times as I’ve been shooting them since the kids were little ones. It’s always so cool to see how fast everyone is growing up and how their personalities change and develop.

Gavin, Owen and Charlie are so much fun to shoot. Charlie is a professional model already. I just put her in front of the camera and she just OWNS it! Gavin, who used to be much more shy is definitely coming out of his shell and enjoying being in front of the camera. And Owen.. my goodness I don’t think I’ve seen a more photogenic kid!

Thanks Kelly and the Lewis clan!

Hudson’s Senior Photos (Orange County Senior Photography)

Tis the season for senior photos! And, as usual, I am behind blogging these sessions…. but it’s so worth the wait because I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this session with Hudson.

Hudson is the son of my friend Susan who I know through club volleyball. And if you have any kids in club sports you know how crazy it is. And by crazy I mean… hold on to your butts and pray you don’t lose your mind kind of crazy! But Susan and I bonded over the craziness and a friendship was born. 🙂

Hudson is her oldest and a ridiculously good tennis player. He is a nationally-ranked player and will be attending Carnegie-Mellon in the fall on a tennis scholarship. How cool is that? And not only is he an amazing tennis player he is also a really great kid. Funny, polite, smart. The whole package. I see a great future for you Hudson!

Thanks Susan & Hudson!!

Potter Family – Palos Verdes Family Photographer

The Potters are actually part of our family that I am blessed enough to photograph every year. Sheila is my husband’s cousin. And while our kids are not 1st cousins, you could never tell them that. To my girls, Alyssa and Natalie are favorites and they have a blast together.

These shoots are always a family affair, with my husband and kids in tow – it’s a great chance for us all to catch up and grab dinner together. And since they live in LA, we don’t get to see them as much as we’d like to.

This year, Sheila wanted to shoot at Malaga Cove in Palos Verdes. Unfortunately we ended up mostly shooting everywhere around there BUT Malaga due to being off with our lighting as well as a very uncooperative shop keeper who wouldn’t close up on time for us to get the shot we wanted. That said, I really love how the shoot turned out.

Thanks Potter Family! Love you guys!! xoxo!
