Lifestyle Newborn Photography Mission Viejo

I was able to meet this 7 days new baby boy during his in home lifestyle newborn photography session. I traveled to Mission Viejo in south Orange County to photograph this little man’s arrival. He is the new baby boy for this family and cute little brother to proud big brother Derek. I have enjoyed photographing this family for the past two years as their family has grown. Karisa and Mike are blessed to have two adorable boys who look so much alike. I can’t be happier for the four of them.

Welcome to the world little one, it was so exiting to meet you at your home and pose you like I did with your big brother. We even used some of the same hats and wraps. Big brother Derek was all smiles watching his new baby brother Conor take pictures. conor_web_01 conor-web-02 conor-web-03

Can these two be any cuter together? I remember photographing Derek’s in home newborn images two years ago and now he is a proud big brother. They look so much alike already. They have the same birth mark and everything. I can’t wait to watch baby  Conor change and grow up into  a handsome young man like his big brother!

I know I will be back soon to start his Fabulous First Year photography sessions and watch him grow as he completes his milestones. Congratulations to Mom, Dad, & Big Brother on their precious new family member.

Family Photography at Palo Verde Estates

It was a beautiful fall afternoon for family photography at Palo Verde Estates. We met at the Malaga Cove library in Palo Verde Estates for this fun, and playful, outdoor family photography session. I just love meeting up with my repeat client’s towards the end of the year to take their family photos . I have been photographing this family since little Olivia was just 18 months old. Now she is on her way to becoming a big sister!!! Their family photography session was a huge success thanks to mom and dad for just going with the flow and letting little miss Olivia lead the session.  Miss Olivia is so big now and showed off her personality quite a bit throughout the session.

It was so easy to capture their love and laughter during this session. These images show just how engaged and connected they are as a family unit. Throughout the session mom and dad were joking, tickling Olivia, playing with Pinot, and chasing each other around. They were always smiling, laughing, and playing throughout their session. It makes my job so easy when I can be around this fun and playful energy. I feel as though the images speak for themselves. You can see the genuine emotion, authentic smiles, and laughter.

Cheers to the Schicke family and hope you have a great 2013. I know that there are some fun things in store for your growing family!!!
