Happy Birthday to my little daredevil | La Mirada Child Photographer

My youngest is 3 today.  It's gone by so fast and knowing that she is my last I have tried to slow down and enjoy every minute.  Sometimes I have been succesful but most days she has me running and I can't keep up.  She is by far the most adventurous of my 3 kids and I know she will go far.  I just hope I can keep up.

Now that Spring is slowly turning into Summer I am starting to book up my beach sessions.  I love the colors in these clothes and they would be perfect for beach pictures.  Check them out and book you summer family session today!!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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

Deegan at age 2 | Orange County Child Photographer | True Bliss Photography
