Sibling Holiday Mini Session: Orange Circle

The Holiday’s are quickly approaching so that means it is holiday mini session time!!! This sibling holiday mini session in Orange Circle, in Old Towne Orange was so fun! I enjoyed meeting these two adorable kids and running around the Orange Circle with them. The kids were dressed perfectly in red and green for their session. We started of the session in front of the twinkling lights of the Christmas tree, right in the middle of the traffic circle. We headed around the Old Towne area finding all the best nooks and colored walls. oc-child-mini-session orange-circle-mini-sessionorange-circle-holiday-kidsoc-holiday-sibling-photography

I’m told that it is hard to like your brother or sister all of the time…I’m so happy these two were able to enjoy each other’s company for a while as we explored downtown Orange. My favorite shots from the session were this one above and the two individual portraits below. They are pretty classic child portraits.

Whimsical Sister Beach Photography Session: Corona Del Mar

As summer technically comes to a close here in Orange County, the warm rays and hot temperatures remind us of how summer wants to stick around some more. On this hot September day, I had the wonderful pleasure of chasing around two cute girls for a whimsical beach photography session to end the summer season. These sisters were so playful and loving as they shared some snuggles down at the beach. A little ruffle tee pee, flower crowns, and lace create a whimsical setting for the girls to play. Little miss Ellsi was so adorable in her pink flower crown and lace blush-pink dress, doing the hula and taking care of baby sister Mila. Miss Mila was ever so sweet in her vintage creme dress. Both girls were in awe of the waves and wanted to play on the sand and splash in the ocean during their beach photography session.

Ellsi was such a ham doing the hula for me on the rocks of Little Corona Beach in Corna Del Mar. She reminded me more than once that she had just taken a Hawaiian vacation and learned how to do the hula properly. Her favorite movie at the moment is Lilo and Stitch, obviously!

Sister LOVE BEACH PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION!!!

The ruffle tee pee created a nice hideaway from the bright sun during the session. Both girls loved playing inside and taking a break in the shade.

I am glad we were able to spend some time together down at the beach, digging in the sand and smelling the salty air. Beach sessions are always exciting and fresh and you never know what is going to happen. I am so happy to have captured these sisters together, enjoying the warm, sunny day.

OC Baby Photography: Derek turns 1

I feel so lucky to have been able to photograph baby Derek during his Fabulous First Year. The OC baby was such a joy to capture every 3 months for the past year! I am so pleased with how each session brought out a new side of his personality. Mom, dad, and I loved watching him grow and change during each photography session. It seems so long ago that he was just a newborn being cradled in their loving arms, now he is up and on the move, walking and saying some words. derek1yr_01 derek1yr_02 derek1yr_04 derek1yr_05 derek1yr_06 derek1yr_03

So loving this little man! He was such a great model during each and every photography session. We had a lot of fun dressing him up each time we met. Ladies, watch out for this cutie pie! He is on the loose… Until we meet again baby Derek!

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.
