Little Isabella- Orange County Newborn Photographer

2015-02-23_0001.jpg
This post is long overdue. This little one is now a few months old, so I figured I better get this posted… well… before she starts kindergarten!
I couldn’t have been more excited for the arrival of Baby Isabella. Her parents are dear friends of ours and we couldn’t wait to hold her and squeeze her and love on her! I have a feeling this little girl is always going to be on time, since she actually arrived a few days BEFORE her due date! You don’t hear that very often on a first baby, at least I don’t. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on her, so a few days after she arrived home, I went over to the house to take some photos of the little princess.
Sooooooo…. you know how we all love those sleepy newborn photos, so we do them as early as possible so we can bend them and roll them up in a ball? Well Little Bell would have none of it. She was ready to be awake. There is far too much world to be seen!

Ooooohhhh! Getting sleepy?
2015-02-23_0003.jpg
Let’s feed her a little to put her to sleep.

Nope. She’d rather play with daddy!

Fore! Becky & Bobby’s Pink and Sparkly California Country Club Wedding

2015-02-05_0001.jpg
Well this blog post is a long time coming! As was this wedding! Becky and Bobby met right after high school and had been dating for nine years. Over the years their love has grown deeper and deeper and matured into something beautiful. They compliment each other perfectly. Bobby is sweet, quiet and reserved. Becky is equally sweet and thoughtful, fun, energetic and crazy on the dance floor! They are a perfect pair. They genuinely care for the people around them and their family and friends know that these two would do just about anything for them. These two are the kind of people you want in your corner.

Bobby loves golf. I mean LOVES golf. While Becky loves all things bling-y! So their wedding took place on the green at California Country Club and there was plenty of sparkle to make this evening both elegant and magical.

Jed & Sonia- Soka University Engagement Session

2015-01-20_0071

I met Sonia a few years ago when I was photographing a wedding. I remember seeing her and hoping I might get to photograph her one day. I knew she would make my job fun! A couple of more years passed and I did get to photograph her, as she was a bridesmaid in another wedding I photographed. But I got really excited when I received an email from her last year, telling me that she was engaged! I am already giddy about how gorgeous she is going to be on her wedding day! And what a joy it was to meet the one who has stolen her heart. Jed is kind and smart and oh so stylish! They live in Connecticut and love to read and fish and picnic. Together, they are a wonderful couple! I can’t wait for their wedding this June!

Millicent and Norris- Santa Barbara Courthouse Wedding

2015-01-20_0030.jpg

It is high time to get back to blogging here! I have so many wonderful people that I have had the pleasure of photographing over the past few months, so let’s get to it!

This is Millicent and Norris. They are awesome. Period. Hilarious really. The kind of people you just want to hang out with because you know there will be many fascinating conversations and you will laugh. A lot. They had been dating for four years when they decided they wanted to make this thing permanent! They wanted something meaningful, surrounded by their closest friends and family, so they chose to say their I do’s at the Santa Barbara Courthouse. This place is seriously one of my favorite places to shoot. As a matter of fact, I got to go back just a couple weeks later to photograph another couple I will share with you soon!

Christmas Mini-Sessions with Murray!- part 1

This year was the first time I’ve done Holiday Mini-Sessions and it was a blast! Exhausting… but awesome! I had the privilege of photographing 8 amazing families and Murray loved letting people crawl all over him! 😉 AND thanks to these families, we collected a ton of canned food that went to help families in need in Fullerton.

Check out some of our fun peeps!

Christmas Tree Farm Family Portraits- Brea Portrait Photographer -Peltzer Pines

2014-12-09_0015It’s almost Christmas! Oh my goodness! And it’s been a LOOOOOOOONG time since I’ve blogged anything. I’ve just been so busy shooting and keeping clients happy and designing beach towels. But now…. I have time to catch my breath. Aaaaaaahhhhhhhh. Usually I try to blog things in order of when I shot them, but at this point, I if I don’t want these Christmas photos to be posted in February, I’d better post them now!

What an honor to photograph this family. I shot Griselda & Humberto’s wedding in 2011 and it was one of my favorites! THEY are two of my favorites! And now they have two adorable kiddos! I mean!

And who knew that there was a Christmas tree farm in Brea? Apparently lots of people, including about 5 other photographers taking family portraits. Well, I’ve often been late to the game. :)

2014 Holiday Mini Sessions Update!

There are little less than 4 weeks left until our holiday mini sessions and we’ve got just a few spots left! We are going to have so much fun!

I’ve got a couple of things to update you on. First, knowing that the holidays are a difficult time for a lot of people, we’ve decided to provide an opportunity to give back. So if you bring at least 5 cans of food (or more if you feel led), to donate to a local food bank, we will give you an additional 2 high res images (a $40 value).

Also, it’s official. Murray will be a part of our mini sessions! You have no idea how difficult it was to find a great photo spot that would accomodate him (yes we refer to our truck by name)! But here’s a sneek peak of our spot.

2014-10-06_0001.jpg
I’m loving all the Oak trees (at least I think those are oaks!). Murray can’t wait to pose with with you and let your kids climb all over him! :)

2014-10-06_0002.jpg
And the light! I love it! My boo looks cute there too, doesn’t he? :)

Hi friends!
