Fashion Friday | La Mirada Family Photographer

The heat has hit us and it's finally feeling like summer.  Family sessions are still in full swing and soon it will be time to think about those holiday cards.  Where has this year gone! Remember that when you are planning what to wear it's best not to necessarily match but for colors and clothing to compliment each other.  Make sure that you feel comfortable in what you wearing and have fun!

Kitty is 9 months! | La Mirada Child Photographer

I first photographed Miss Kitty as a newborn and my how she has grown.  Now she is 9 months old and getting ready for her baptism.  She was all smiles and giggles and just the sweetest little thing.

La Mirada Newborn Photographer | Baby E!

This session was sort of a last minute thing so I came terribly unprepared with no backdrops, props, etc.  Just me and my camera.  I was so glad I had the opportunity to meet this special family.  Baby E has been a dream for this family and his arrival was much anticipated and a long time in the making.  Thank you Jen and  Aaron for letting me into your home.  I hope you love your sneak peek!

La Mirada Senior Photographer | Rekia and Courtney

This past weekend I had the most wonderful opportunity.  I flew to Phoenix, AZ to be mentored by the super talented Keri Doolittle of Keri Doolittle Photography in Denver, CO.  We spent the day together Friday pouring over some business stuff and then got to do a session with two gorgeous models.  Here is just a quick sneak peek with more to come soon from this session, a wedding AND a newborn!

Spring | Orange County Photographer | True Bliss

Kaia and I went on a quest to find a meadow full of yellow or purple flowers to take some pictures and just get out and enjoy the weather after the rain we had yesterday.  Unfortunately our hunt for Spring flowers was unsuccessful but we did manage to have a great time on the swings enjoying the California sunshine.

Fashion a few days late | Orange County Photographer | True Bliss

Well this was supposed to be posted on Fashion Friday but we were out of town so it's coming to you a few days late.  This color scheme is perfect for making your Spring pictures pop and will coordinate nicely for the whole family.  Mother's Day is coming up and I know for many Dads it's always a challenge to find that one of a kind gift for Mom.  So how about giving her the gift she can love for a lifetime...pictures of the kids!  Contact me for a special I am offering that will make it the perfect day for Mom.

Adriana | Orange County Senior Photographer | True Bliss Photography

I love high school seniors!  They are pretty much up for trying anything and Adriana was no exception.  I had the pleasure of photographing her in Orange, CA and I think we captured some gorgeous images.  But that isn't very hard when your subject is beautiful.  Thanks Adriana I hope you love them!

Loves Me Not II | Orange County Child Photographer | True Bliss Photography

Recently I posted about a wonderful clothing company that we were doing some work for, Loves Me Not, with some images from their new line.  With the beautiful (and HOT) weather we are having in Southern California I thought it was timely to post a few more the gorgeous Spring line that is on sale now!

Fashion Friday | True Bliss Photography

I am often asked by clients what they should wear for a session.  I always stress that you should dress like yourself and how you are comfortable with just a little more oomph.  It always best for families to wear coordinating as opposed to matching colors and feel good in what you wear.  Remember that these images will be hanging on your wall for years to come.  You want to look like YOU only better!  With that said I am planning to post a Fashion Friday blog post once a month to give people a some suggestions of outfits that coordinate well.

Marc & Randi | Engaged | True Bliss Photography

I love people in love and these two are crazy in love (does that make sense??).  Just hearing the story of how they met and fell in love and knew they were right for each other made me happy and so excited to be doing their engagement pictures.  We had so much fun at the Japanese Gardens in Long Beach.  Randi told me that Marc is the water to her fire and I don't think she could have described it any better.  You two are fun, wild and beautiful.  Thank you for letting me share this day with you.

HELLO GORGEOUS!!!!!!!

LOOK AT YOUR MAN RANDI!!

LOVE THE SHOES!!!

Loves Me Not | Orange County Child Photographer | True Bliss Photography

I was honored recently to have the opportunity to photograph some of the Spring 2010 line for a boutique line of clothing, Loves Me Not.  This is just the first of one so make sure to check back often and see the rest of the beautiful pieces that will be for sale soon.

The B Family | Orange County Family Photographer | True Bliss Photography

This was a session that was a long time coming.  Due to illness and weather we had to reschedule a few times but finally I was able to meet this great family and take their pictures.  Not only is this family fun and beautiful but the location where we held the session was breathtaking and gave us some lovely background.  I hope you enjoy your sneak peek and I can't wait to show you the rest!

Kelly Part 2 | Orange County Child Photographer | True Bliss Photography

You may remember this adorable face from a session I did back in November.  Well cute Kelly is back and fun as ever.  This little man had the best time trying to scare me and tackle me to the ground.  He is definitely all boy!  Enjoy Mom and Dad!! web1

The E Family | Orange County Family Photographer | True Bliss Photography

These gorgeous kiddos were full of energy and kept me and their Mommy on our toes.  They loved all the paths and piles of dirt and had such a blast playing in it.  Even the little bit of rain that came down didn't slow them down.  Hope you enjoy your sneak peek! web3
