LA Child Photography at the Gentle Barn

It is always fun to head out to L.A. for a child photography session. For Zachary’s 4-year-old pictures a few weeks ago we headed up to the Gentle Barn in Santa Clarita and spent the day at the cities most humane and loving petting zoo. This place is amazing and stands for the ethical treatment of all animals. The owner has rescued and cared for these many animals for 17 years now and finds it hard to turn animals down. More info here about {The Gentle Barn}.

Zach is absolutely in LOVE with animals of all kinds. This kiddo owns about 100+ hard toy animals that he plays with each and every day at home. He knows their proper names, habitats, (his word not mine) eating habits, life span, etc. This smart 4-year-old can even tell you that an Orca is the largest dolphin in the sea. I mean seriously, this kid knows his animals.

It was so special for me to spend the day with Zachary and photograph him in his element for his 4th birthday. I know mom will cherish these photos forever because they will remind her what her four year old son was like. She will be able to look back at this time in his life and recall specific memories of his love and understanding of animals. This is another example of an ALL ABOUT ME photography session.

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!

OC Baby Photography: Fabulous First Year: Ayva’s 9 month shoot

The Fabulous First year of this sweet girl continues. As we know, this darling baby girl is one of my Fabulous First year babies. We have seen grow and change from a newborn {here}, into a smiley three month old {here}, a girly six month old {here}  and now a mover and a shaker in this 9 month photo session. Ayva turned 9 months in the heat of the summer and boy is she lookin cute in those shades and playing out side. Since it still feels like summer here in the OC, I thought I would treat you to these pictures of one of my favorite all time gals. 

Big brother Zach couldn’t resist getting in the tub and playing too. We had so much fun taking these shots during one of the hottest days in the summer. Both of the kiddos loved making bubbles in the bucket and splashing around to cool off in the hot sun.

Can’t wait for the 1 year shoot Miss Ayva!!!

Lifestyle Newborn Session: Aliso Viejo

Hooray!!! A sweet new baby boy is born! I am excited to share this lifestyle newborn session with you all today. Precious baby Sawyer has arrived and I couldn’t be happier for his parents. The session takes place at the family home, in Aliso Viejo. I met mom and dad a few months back when I photographed their maternity session. They were eagerly anticipating the arrival of baby boy Sawyer. I can’t think of anything more precious than a little bundle of joy arriving into the lives of a perfect couple. Below is first glimpse into baby Sawyer’s new life.

I just love capturing the smile on his face!

Some of my favorite images are in black and white! The contrast of the black with the sweet creamy skin of the baby is so powerful. I adore the playful image of baby Sawyer, swaddled up and staring at the camera. Lifestyle newborn sessions show how baby really is.

Below is the first family portrait of the new parents. Baby Sawyer is literally in good hands.

Lifestyle newborn photography sessions are done in your home around 2-10 day s after the baby is born. The timing of the newborn session is essential to ensure that the baby is sleepy for longer periods of time.
