Princess Photography Session: Huntington Beach

A princess photography session is so much fun for your third birthday! This year, little Ashlyn wanted to be a just like her favorite princess, Sophia for the day. We met at Huntington Beach Central Park for an afternoon of all things girly, and princess like. We made sure she had crowns, jewels, bows, mirrors, and sparkly treasures. I collaborated with the insanely talented prop & fashion stylist, Laura Kiechle on this project to make sure that Ashlyn felt like a real fairytale princess for the day. We had plenty of crowns, mirrors, and jewels for Ashlyn to play and dress up with during the photography session. This pretty little princess was so adorable and had a fabulous day pretending to be her favorite princess.  princess photography session ashlyn_02 ashlyn_03 ashlyn_04 ashlyn_05

Who’s the fairest of them all? Such a gorgeous little lady!

I know that Ashlyn had a fabulous time being a fairytale princess for the day. Being three and ruling the kingdom is a tough job, but I think she was  up for it. Little Miss is going to be a big sister soon and I am sure she just can’t wait to teach her new baby sister how to act like a princess too. Happy Birthday Princess Ashlyn!!! Until next year…

OC Children Photography: Ryder turns 2!

It is slowly starting to feel like Fall here in sunny, Southern California. What better way to kick off the Fall season than with a stylish 2-year-old named Ryder. We met at Huntington Beach Central Park at the beginning of October for a stroll through the park to capture his second birthday. We had fun running after ducks, hanging from bars, and playing with cars and trains along the way.  The handsome boy turns the big 2 today, October 31st! Happy Halloween birthday to Ryder!!!

I just love the set below of Ryder playing with his trains…

It’s such a fantastic time of year to get out there with your warm clothes on and run through the leaves. What a fun time we had that day at Huntington Beach Central Park in October. Once again, Happy Happy Birthday to the handsome boy! Yay for you, the big 2!

Superhero Photography Session: Irvine

One of my favorite things about being a photographer is creating a story with images to celebrate the things that children LOVE. This super fun, superhero photography session was shot in Irvine for Weston’s super 2nd birthday. Mom told me that Weston is really into all of the superheros right now and loves watching them on t.v. Mom and I had fun collaborating on the story that we wanted to tell for Weston’s superhero photography session. She went out and bought a cape and mask for us to use as props and made his #2 shirt with iron on transfers. The only obstacle for the shoot was finding a location that had tall buildings. Being in Orange County, California there are not many options but we made it work!

Up to the roof top we go….Weston showed us the way…

 Happy Super 2nd birthday to Weston!!! It was a blast running around after you and making your birthday wishes come true as you were able to be the superhero for the day. It was quite an adventure to shoot your superhero photography session.

OC Child Photography: Ashlyn turns 2!

Ashlyn, the little pink lady turned the big 2 recently. We met up at Castaways Park in Newport Beach, California to document her big day!!! We walked along the park path and played in the “snow” aka wood chips. I think Ashlyn is dreaming of going back to Rhode Island for the winter where she, mom, and dad spend their time in the off-season.

We headed down to Little Corona Beach in Corona del Mar for the second part of the photo session. It was a hot and humid afternoon but nothing was hotter or cuter than Ashlyn in her black and pink lace romper.

To celebrate the birthday, mom headed over to the Corona del Mar plaza for a Sprinkles cupcake! Who doesn’t love a cupcake? Especially a one from the famous Sprinkles. Ashlyn dug into the cupcake without thought or hesitation. A satisfied reaction for any person I do believe was clear across her face. What a wonderful afternoon we had romping around the park, the beach, and eating yummy cupcakes!
