Munson Family – Newport Beach Family Photographer

This was one of those sessions that took me awhile to blog because I couldn’t for the life of me choose which photos to post – there were just too many to choose from!

You may recognize this family from the blog last year when I posted images from the adorable Presley’s 1st birthday party ( I can’t believe one year went by so quickly!). Presley is this little bundle of pure awesomeness… she has this personality that just radiates which, of course, makes her pure joy to shoot. She can be pretty stingy with her smiles, but when she does it can literally light up a room.

Cameron and Tiffany are really laid-back, chill people which made the Balboa Fun Zone such a great choice for them… not only did Cameron hang out there as a teenager (which made it a place with some significance for them), but the overall vibe just fit their family so well.

This definitely makes my list of one of my favorite “family-of-three” shoots! So much love and so much fun!

Thanks Munson Family!!!

Demsher/Hove Families – Irvine Family Photographer

One of the best parts of my job is meeting new families and getting a glimpse into their lives. This shoot was especially awesome since it was to honor and capture parents that were celebrating their 55th wedding anniversary. It was so fun getting to watch three generations of a family have a great time together.

It was great seeing the adult “kids” interact, to watch the grandchildren have a blast together and to see the grandparents taking it all in. There were 17 people in all which could have been a challenge, but this family made my job easy. 🙂

Thanks so much, Demsher & Hove families! It was an honor to be a part of your fun event!

Hunt Family – Irvine Family Photographer

This shoot was one of my last for the holiday season, and boy did we get lucky with the weather. It really could not have been a more perfect day. It was warm with gorgeous sunlight – not bad for Thanksgiving weekend (thank you Southern California weather!).

These girls were so fun to shoot – the littlest, Elena, is just so full of life and is crazy photogenic (check out the first photo!), and Isabel is just beautiful and sweet with the longest eyelashes I think I’ve ever seen in my life! Such a beautiful family with so much love.

Thanks Hunt Family!

Swanson Family – San Juan Capistrano Photographer

I always look forward to this shoot each year… in fact, my whole family looks forward to this shoot as it’s usually a family affair! (see last pick below). The Swansons are such great friends and Shane and Kylie are like my 3rd and 4th children.

The best thing about my shoots with them is that our shoots end up usually being like a big hang-out session… everyone is relaxed and at ease which is why I end up getting such fun shots of them.  It also helps that they are all so damn beautiful! I’m not sure there’s a more photogenic family out there!

Since the Swansons moved this past year, Nicki wanted to do a really fun shot to include on their change of address cards. And it was all her idea. This pool was NOT heated, and yes… they jumped in fully dressed! Isn’t this just crazy awesome!!!?

The rest of our shoot was done down in San Juan Capistrano at the Train Depot and Los Rios District. This location has such beautiful backdrops and colors… it really ended up being the perfect backdrop for them.

Thanks so much Swansons! Love you guys!!! xoxox!!!!

Potter Family – Orange County Photographer

My husband and I don’t have a ton of family in Southern California, so we really love when we get the chance to see the family that we do have living here. Sheila is my husband’s cousin – we love seeing them when we get the chance, which is usually around the holidays. This is my second year shooting their family (just the girls this time), and it’s so great watching these two cutie-pie’s grow up.

Natalie is so adorable – you can tell she is a responsible big sister and has both a serious side and a goofy side. And Alyssa – well, she is just full of goofiness! She is a ham, and a comedian, and a sweetheart. I just adore them both, as do my kids. I suppose they would be considered second cousins (or something twice-removed? I’m never sure…). 🙂

We will see you soon Potter Family! xoxo!!
