This is how I feel about these people. They are my family. And some days I seriously don’t know what I (or Ron, Sydney & Kendall) would do without them front and center in our lives. They are my people.

I think this must be the sixth (?) year doing their annual family photos and it is obviously one of my favorite sessions since it’s casual and laid back. That said, Shane and Kylie do give me a hard time like my own kids do, which of course I know means that they love me tons. :-).

On a side note… check out the new location below… Isn’t it rad?

Thanks Swanson Family! LOVE YOU!!

Crail Family (Irvine Family Photographer)

This is my third time photographing this awesome family and it’s always so much fun. A couple years ago Stephanie embarked on a new and exciting chapter in her life and I’m always so honored to be a part of documenting this amazing time of her life.

And the Crail boys always make my job a lot of fun… Andrew is an absolute ham and Alex is wicked smart – always keeping me on my toes. Overall we have a ton of fun and I love capturing the wonderful relationship Steph has with her two boys.

Thanks Crail Family!

Reagan’s First Birthday!

I love getting to share in family milestones… it’s truly an honor to witness these events that are so important. Even better is that I get to document these moments for the family to remember for years to come. Best. Job. Ever.

This session was for sweet little Reagan’s 1st birthday. I was also there when big sister Presley turned one as well!

Munson Girls

Love. Love. Love.

(and by the way, neither one of them liked cake!)

Also love seeing families of three going to families of four… I know from personal experience that it can be challenging to say the least. But Cameron and Tiffany take it all in stride and are such great parents. And these Presley and Reagan are the sweetest ever.

Thanks so much Munson family!

AJ’s Senior Photos – Orange County Senior Photographer

Needless to say I am WAY behind on blogging my sessions this year. I was crazy busy this past Spring and before I knew it Summer was here with kids home, vacations, and crazy schedules (our summers never seem to be relaxing anymore, but that’s for another blog post someday).

Some of the sessions that I will be blogging will be several of my senior sessions. And can I just tell you that I LOVE shooting seniors? They are so fun and mature and generally game for anything. And contrary to what many think, the guys can get just as into the sessions as the girls which I love.

AJ’s shoot was super fun. He is such an easy going kid – great personality, awesome hockey player, and looks like James Dean – pretty much a killer combination I would say. What you can’t see was that AJ was basically in a cast during this shoot, but he was a trooper to say the least. And even better, his younger brother Hayden joined in from some shots at the end.

Thanks AJ, Hayden & Kari! xoxoxo!

Swanson Family – Newport Beach Family Photographer

Families of three are always so much fun to shoot – it’s so fun to see the parents having such a great time with their child and really soaking up all the love and togetherness. And the Swansons are no exception. They are such a sweet family. And Jeff and Rachel are such great parents to little Morgan.

The Swansons were here visiting from Minnesota, so Newport Beach and the Balboa Fun Zone felt like the perfect location for them.

Morgan, who is a super outgoing, funny and happy little kid, wasn’t too happy in front of the camera, especially when I was shooting all three of them. In other words, little Morgan made me work for it. But thankfully I snuck in a couple of shots which showed all three of them together and happy!

Thanks Swanson Family!
