The B Family | Manhattan Beach Photographer

I LOVE repeat clients and I LOVE the B Family.  This is the 3rd year in a row that I have done family pictures for the B Family and I have enjoyed so much watching their family grow each year.  This year mom chose a spot where they liked to visit as a family so it was special to them which always makes for wonderful memories.

The P Family | Anaheim Family Photographer

You may remember this beautiful family from some past sessions we have done.  This is the 3rd year I have done the P Families photos and each time it gets better!  Mom has awesome style and everyone is always decked out perfectly for their session.  I hope you love the sneak peek!  










The L Family | Laguna Beach Family Photographer

This past weekend I had the pleasure of photographing the L Family in Laguna Beach.  Sweet Hudson was so eager and easy to photograph that he truly made my job an easy one.  I loved his energy and we had a blast getting these images.  I hope Mom and Dad love the little sneak peek with many more to come soon!








Fashion Friday | La Mirada Photographer

It's time for another installment of Fashion Friday! I am often asked by clients who are coming for a family session what they should wear or what colors work best together. These collections should help with some ideas if you are stuck and don't know what to wear!

Happy Holidays | La Mirada Family Photographer

From my family to yours! Thank you to all my clients that have made 2010 a wonderful year and I am looking forward to a great 2011!

The L Family | Costa Mesa Family Photographer

This is the third year that I have had the pleasure of photographing the L Family and I love watching these girls grow in front of my camera. I was so glad when Mom requested a fun and colorful urban session since I have been waiting to use this location and I think it worked perfectly!

Mother & Daughter | Mission Viejo Family Photographer

When I was contacted to do this session for a this beautiful mother and her daughter I was excited to create some memories for them. You could really tell that these two have a lot of fun together and there is a ton of love.

The Y Family | Newport Beach Family Photographer

I promised this beautiful family a sneak peek before I left town for a few days. I hope you love them with more to come soon!

The Clay Family | Temecula Family Photographer

I couldn't wait for this session! Carey and I have been friends for a few years and I was so excited when she asked me to do her family pictures and she couldn't have picked a more beautiful location. I hope you love your beautiful images Carey with more to come!

The B Family | Manhattan Beach Family Photographer

The last time I photographed this beautiful family they were only 3. I was so excited to meet the newest addition, Finley and she is such a sweet baby. Big sister Avery is so doting and really loves her and you can just see it in the pictures. I am so glad Leah decided to do a session in their home. Everything was candid and relaxed and I enjoy this type of session so much. I love the images and hope Mom and Dad are excited to see their sneak peek!

The P Family | Riverside Family Photographer

This is the second time I have had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful family. I was so excited for this session since I LOVE urban settings and this location was an awesome choice. This beautiful mommy is also a talented photographer so we had fun doing some shots for her website as well. I hope you like your little sneak peek!

It's the little things | La Mirada Family Photographer

OK, so I have to preface this by saying I am NOT a product photographer. People are my thing :). I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to show you these adorable accordion books that I offer to my clients. These fun little books sized 2.5x3.5 come in a set of 3 with your choice of 9-10 images and make the perfect gift for the holidays. My clients love to give these to grandparents, as stocking stuffers and for Dad or Mom to take to the office. It's your own little portable brag book to show off your family all year round.

Pumpkin Patch | La Mirada Family Photographer | Tanaka Farms

It's an annual tradition for us to visit Tanaka Farms in Irvine and check out the pumpkin patch. The kids look forward to it and I love seeing how excited they get. If you live in the area you should check it out!

This is pretty much how most pictures end up when I try and get all 3 kids together (and yes, my oldest is trying to shoot himself in the head)

Fashion Friday | La Mirada Family Photographer

Here is another fun installment of Fashion Friday with some great ensembles for your Holiday pictures!

The B Family | San Juan Capistrano Family Photographer

I really think I have the best looking and best dressed clients around! I was so excited to photograph the "B" Family again. The first time I met them was last December when Landon was just 8 months old and only just sitting. Now he is a busy 18 month old and on the move! I know Mom and Dad were worried that we wouldn't get any shots but I think this sneak peek shows we did...and I am sure you will love the rest. On this first one I couldn't decide if I like black and white so I am showing both :)

You are GORGEOUS Shannon!

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.

"A" Family | Orange County Family Photographer | Anaheim Hills Photographer

I had a super fun session on Friday with the "A" Family.  It even included 2 cute dogs that wanted in on the action.  These boys were so good and I think we got some great shots for Mom, Dad and their Aunt.  I hope you enjoy your sneak peek and I can't wait to show you some more!

If this image doesn't describe life with 4 boys then I don't know what does!

Baby Flair Boutique | La Mirada Family Photographer

Recently I was browsing on Etsy for some cute headbands for Kaia and came across Baby Flair Boutique, an awesome shop based out of Southern California.  The owner Alyson was so accodmmodating when I needed a quick turn around and got the headband out to me in record time.  I was fortunate to be able to do some work for her and photograph some new products.  Alyson's work is flawless and these items are so high quality and super cute.  Make sure you check her out and tell her you heard it here!

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.
