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…

Beautiful Beach Maternity Photography: Huntington Beach

An afternoon spent in the sun and on the sand of Huntington Beach photographing a gorgeous mama to be is total perfection. This stunning mama to be was glowing and radiant during her beach maternity photography session. She and her loving husband adore Huntington Beach and spend their free time here surfing and splashing around with Cody, their rescue dog. One of my favorite images from her maternity session is the first one below. The sun was just setting, creating perfect light, casting a warm glow on Mara as she relaxed in the sand. She looks amazing as seen throughout this series of images. The couple is so relaxed and joyful and over the moon to welcome baby girl soon. I can’t wait to meet the sweet baby girl when she arrives.

Of course, back at the house we had to get a few intimate images of Mara, up close, to show off her amazing maternity body. She was just glowing and exuding confidence. I love being surrounded by the spirit of motherhood and the beauty of pregnancy.

Pretty soon their new addition will grace this world and bring so much more love and joy into their lives. A perfect princess will be here so soon, already so loved and welcomed. Congratulations to the new parents to be. I am so happy for you both and know that you will be great parents.

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!
