Best Photos of 2014

After votes from clients, friends and family they decided on the Best Photos of 2014 that I took. The number one image with the most votes was this gorgeous portrait of Sophia sitting in a window at the Mission in San Juan Capistrano. It had 29 votes because of those votes she is receiving a 16×20 wall portrait to cherish forever.

Third place was one of my favorites from the year, Baby Christopher’s feet. The comments on this image:  So unique – makes you study it! and Very artistic.001The last image with a lot of votes was Baby Lexi in a crate. Her image had the most comments of any of the photos:

I love this little girl sitting in the box. The colors are bright but blend together really well. I like how one of the flowers on her headband matches the color of the box. Her pose is so casual natural for a toddler. She holding onto the box, but not gripping it for dear life. She looks like she’s playing. I like having the autumn too because I think everyone has that picture of playing in a pile of leaves. And toothless smiles are just too cute!ADSC_0258 LogoOk – I had to vote for this one because the second I saw it I felt happy! The little darling looks as though she is having a great time and the picture is a great mix of nature, textures, light, cuteness and really could not be more perfect! I hope I don’t mess you up because I’m going to like 2 more – but this is my favorite GREAT WORK!!!

OMG!!!! That is the most precious picture ever!!!! You are AWESOME! What a gift you have with children.

Thank you to all my clients for inspiring my photography to create some very unique images. I am looking forward to 2015!!

Roberta – Maternity Photography – Orange County Maternity Photographer

My first time to photograph at the San Juan Capistrano Mission. Love it!! So many architectural backgrounds with arches, hidden staircase, great doors, windows, fountains, etc.. A photographer’s dream. This is my third time photographing Roberta and her family. It is always a pleasure to plan out a shoot with Roberta. She is very stylish and knows what she wants for her shoots. 
I had a wonderful assistant on this shoot, Alyssa Michelle who made my job easier. For the above photos she hand held a light for me on to Roberta’s hair. Roberta has beautiful hair and I really wanted to emphasis how gorgeous it is and the light enhanced it. Alyssa, thank you for helping me on this shoot.
Love putting kids in windows.
