Family Portraits for the Holidays!!!

Love this holiday seasons as I am photographing beautiful families. This particular family the venue was Santa Monica Cliffs as the couple had sentimental memories as they got married there. Here they’re many years later with two kids.

Hailey’s 1st Birthday Photos

How wonderful to be able to capture Hailey’s First Birthday. Last year, I photographed Hailey’s newborn session and the year just flew by quickly. Hailey’s is beautiful, adorable and loved very much by big brother Jonathan and her parents. 001 Hailey002 Hailey  8x10 croppedWith the help of Hailey’s Mom, we documented Hailey’s first year on this chalkboard.

A Stroll in the Park with Beautiful Family Photography

The last time I photographed this beautiful family is when their youngest, Hazel, was a baby. So nice to see them back for a family session.
011I had suggested floral wreathes for the girl’s hair. Holly had fresh wreathes made which enhanced the images. 005002001Laguna Niguel Regional Park is a great location with a picture perfect bridge and lots of mature trees. 003004006008
