Holiday Mini Sessions

 

 

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!!!

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

These super cute cousins were so much fun.  Miss Bella was great at taking direction and we instantly because friends when she saw my candy.  Landon was such a trooper and hung through to the very end.  This is just a quick blog post for the family since the gallery is almost done! web1

I remember when we did pictures for The Landis Family last year and I am so glad I had the opportunity to do them again.  Stephanie chose a beautiful location in Palos Verdes for the session and although we were racing with the ever fading light I think we got some gorgeous images to chose from.  Thank you for allowing me to capture your pictures again this year! web2

Miss Kaia | Orange County Child Photographer | True Bliss Photography

It's been a long time since I have taken my own kids out for pictures so I was glad to have the opportunity to photograph Kaia with a darling little tutu and hat for a great Etsy seller, Baby K Designs. kaiababyk_3016

Rader Family | Orange County Beach Photographer | True Bliss Photography

I met Cari and Justin the same night I met my husband.  We have been in each other's weddings, bought houses around the block from each other, shared margaritas, trips to Target and had babies within months of each other.  I also cried very hard when my good friends moved to Arizona.  Unfortunately we only see each other a few times a year but when we do it's like they never left.  I am so honored that I was able to take your family pictures (I know how hard it was for you Justin!)...and since I know how patient Cari is here is your sneak peek. web2

Colin is 9 months | Orange County Child Photographer | True Bliss Photography

This little cutie is all business!  He reminds me of my youngest because he is so serious and really makes you work for that smile but I just love it because I think we captured his true personality.  Hope you enjoy your sneak peek! web1

Married | Orange County Photographer | True Bliss Photography

My younger brother got married this weekend and I was fortunate enough to capture the special day for him and my new sister in law, Tiffany.  It was hard to be a "professional" and hold back the tears as I watched them take their vows.  I am so proud of both of you and wish you a life time of happiness. ruggeriwedding_2594

Check out these beautiful girls!  These sisters were every bit adorable as they were full of personality.  They were naturals in front of the camera and I had such a pleasure photographing them.  I know Mom was excited to see a quick peek so I hope you enjoy them Michelle. blog1

Miss Kitty is 2 weeks | Orange County Newborn Photographer | True Bliss Photography

Katherine (Kitty as she is affectionately called) is one of the newest members on my husbands side of the family.  She is so tiny and delicate and amazingly didn't cry once during our whole session.  Can't you just tell she is going to have a great fashion sense already? blog1
