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!

Lewis Family – Irvine Family Photographer

I don’t get to see this family very much during the year, but I always look forward to our shoots in the Fall. This family has so much energy and so much happiness it’s contagious.

Kelly is such a beautiful, enthusiastic person – she just radiates love and positive vibes. And oh boy, these kids… the camera just LOVES them! Little Charlie is a model already (I took an entire series of shots of her “posing” which were quite simply the cutest things ever). The girl knows how to WORK it. 🙂 And Owen is so full of life and is the spitting image of his mom. And Gavin makes me work a bit harder, but I always end up loving the shots I get since they really do seem like they are so “him”.

And as a little side note – Kelly nailed coordinating the clothing for this outdoor shoot. The colors and patterns she picked are so crazy perfect. I just love them.

Thanks Lewis Family!!

Chatterton Family -Orange County Family Photographer

I always love my shoots at The Lab in Costa Mesa… the location is so vibrant, colorful and funky. And it was the perfect location for this family since on the day of our shoot it was sweet Sophie’s 14th birthday (how cool is that?!). We ended up doing a little mini celebration to ensure she had an extra special time at the shoot (scroll down to see!).

The Chatterton’s are such a beautiful family — have you ever seen such blue eyes?

Thanks Chatterton Family!
