i {heart} gifs!

One of these days I would love to incorporate video into my sessions, but for now I appease that desire by creating animated gifs.  It kind of has a filmstrip effect which I love...  Here's one of my best friends and her cute family...  More from their session coming soon! 

P.S.  Have you "liked" my FB Page yet?  If not, head on over and "like" it before November 30th.  If I reach 500 likes by Nov. 30th, I will do a drawing for a free session ($250 value) plus a gallery cd ($600 value)!!!

Van Boerum Family | Orange County Family Photographer

This is my dear friend Alex and her sweet family.  She is from England and I love her accent!  I could listen to her talk all day long.  When I read her blog, it is always with her accent in mind!  Her children are all beautiful...and it was really fun to spend a little time with them! 

I didn't take a pullback shot of this location, but you'd never believe it's right off of the pathway in the park - the perfect little bench made from a log, and gorgeous backlight!  Perfect for a quick mini-session! 

Thank you Van Boerums!  I hope your friends and family in England will enjoy getting to see how your family has grown!

Winner! Winner! Chicken Dinner!

So, I kind of slacked off on my promise to do another drawing once I reached 50 followers...but here I am, redeeming myself.  :)  I will do a drawing for a FREE 30-minute session + 10 images on CD each time another 25 people start following my blog...  I'm only doing this until I reach 100 followers -- so that means only 2 more drawings!  I currently have 350 likes on my Facebook page -- and so I'm thinking of doing some kind of giveaway once I reach 500...  Stay tuned!

Anyway...back to the blog giveaways!

My first winner (when I reached 25 followers) was Seth Braithwaite...and you can see their pics HERE...

My second winner is...


Please contact me ASAP if you'd like to fit in a session before Christmas...otherwise, you have until April 30, 2013 to redeem this prize! or call/text 714-865-3885

Isn't this family just oozing gorgeousness?  This woman was glowing...and looked fabulous for having a baby only 2 months ago!  I was seriously in love with their son...he was totally hamming it up for me, and we had so much fun!  

If you haven't heard of Jen's blog, Delightful Deets, you should go check it out right now!
