Lucibello Family | Huntington Beach, CA | Family Photographer | Mini-Sessions

Oh man.  I just can't seem to get back into the bloggy groove!  But, here's a quickie post showing one of my mini-sessions from a few months ago...  Super cute family + gorgeous late afternoon light under the pier = magic.  Can't go wrong with that combo!  I love mini-sessions, it's the perfect amount of time to capture just enough poses/candids to keep everyone happy (i.e. little kiddos and husbands, tee-hee)  This family bought a mini-session from an auction which was raising money for my friend Tracy's family to adopt a little girl from Bulgaria.  THANK YOU Lucibello family for helping The Jensens in their adoption journey!!!  Anyway... we all know you look at photoblogs for the PHOTOS, so here ya go:

Monroe Family | Orange County Family Photographer

Hello there blog world!

Yes, I know I sort of disappeared for a while, but I didn't stop working!  I kind of lost the urge to blog, and well, I gave into that urge!  So, I have lots of catching up to do, and lots of gorgeous images to share!  So, stay tuned for more frequent updates on this old blog!

This cute family won my FB fan giveaway, and we got together this summer for a quick mini-session.  I am in love with their color scheme and cutie-pie little girls!  Thanks Monroe family for a fun session!  Hope you love your images :)  xoxo







I'm still booking Fall Mini-Sessions, and would love to photograph your family!

Baby Bear | Orange County Newborn Photographer











I'm so pleased to introduce baby Baron, aka "Bear," my sweet cousin Kay's new baby.  He's so scrumptious, I just get all mushy inside looking at these!  I even got a little teary eyed as I was editing... there is just something so purely magical about newborn babies!

I have really enjoyed the few times I've been able to come shoot new babies while they are still in the hospital.  No, it's not the same as a birth story, but honestly, it's almost as good!  They are usually only a day or 2 old when I come and FRESH from heaven.  I can't say it enough, PURE MAGIC.  And I want to be completely honest...I didn't miss all the props and poses and blankets, etc that newborns shoots usually consist of!  Simple and natural - seriously those new babies are the most beautiful things on the planet and do not need any accessorizing to make them cuter.  Am I right?

Thank you Kay and Matt for letting me come photograph your sweet baby boy.  I love you guys!

If you're pregnant and considering having your birth story photographed, or if you're interested in some hospital photos like these, I'd love to hear from you!  (psssst...photography makes a great baby shower gift! I offer gift certificates in any amount!)

Kerr Family | Orange County Photographer





















 Kristie is one of my besties...and she is also my go-to girl for my hair!  She's got magical powers when it comes to hiding all my "blonde" (aka WHITE) hairs that have been sprouting out of my head for the last 10 years...

I love her dearly and love even more that she loves pictures so much!  She has three sweet little boys who I have had the pleasure of knowing almost all their lives!  (Pssst...baby girl is currently baking in the oven!!!!)

She and Grady have been married for 10 years...and when we took these pics it was kind of celebrating that, as well as little Gavin's 2nd birthday...I loved their grey and yellow color scheme and especially love Gavin flying around in his Superman cape!
