Orange County Children Photography – Addie

I have known Jackie May (First Team Real Estate) since 2009 when she helped me sell my condo and found my current beautiful home in Irvine. Jackie has the most precious Grand-daughter, Addie that she wanted me to take photos for a surprise Christmas gift for Addie’s parents.Adorable girl portraitJackie wrote a google review about Addie’s Photo Session:

I can not express how wonderful my experience with Kathryn was. I brought my 18 month old grand daughter to her for some photographs so we could surprise her parents at Christmas. Well it was one of those off days for my grand daughter who was very, very tired and just not into what I had up my sleeve. Kathryn was so patient and had many tricks up her own sleeve to get Addie to feel comfortable and to look at the camera and smile. She had many props and unique ideas that set these pictures apart from anything I’ve ever seen. If you want the best quality, unique venue, with the most remarkable outcome you will let Kathryn do your photographs!!

Young girl professional photoJackie wrote to me Addie’s parents reaction to the photos: “They absolutely, positively loved the pictures!!!  I cannot thank you enough for capturing the beauty so perfectly of my little Addie! The entire day will be a favorite memory of mine!!”

From baby into Childhood – Orange County Children Photography

I took this photograph back in 2010 of Baby Cianna. This month I met up with Cianna and her Mother to photograph her seven years later.
We went to Santa Monica Pier for her photo shoot. Cianna in the photo below is looking at her Mother. Love all the bright colors at the Pier. Perfect for children or a family session. Of course I had to get one image of Cianna at the end of Route 66!!Looking forward to photographing Cianna during her teens years.

10 Year Journey Continues with Children Photography

When I started photographing children ten years ago, I knew just how important their expressions were – be it laughter, a cute smile or just their own natural look.

The joy I experience when parents see the images I captured of their children is always so rewarding. Working with the children year after year, I have the privilege to watch them grow up through my camera lens. It is really gratifying to go to their homes and see all the photos that I took throughout the years and know that I was a part of their lasting memories.

Here are some of my favorite images from my first ten years:

I got Chloe, Ellie and Dean to laugh by making them say something silly about their dad…it just cracked them up!

Photographing two sets of twins that are all four years old could be challenging, but I managed to get some great images – this is one my favorites.

Three brothers who are just so cute; Adam, Travis and Max.

I have been photographing Lauren since 2011, the year I took this photo. She lives out of state but her grandmother resides in Laguna Beach. Her grandmother loves this image and ordered it as a canvas wall portrait. The colors of the sky are beautiful in this timeless image.

Photographing Porter in front of this large door shows just how small he was at that moment in his life.

Jack is 10 years older than Erin. There is a big height difference that I had to keep in mind when posing them. This image from 2014 is one of my favorite images of the two.

I was photographing a kids’ party when I happened to look down at the rent-a-clown’s feet.  Noticing the juxtaposition of the little girl’s feet next to the clown’s big shoes, I knew I had a great photo the parents would love! Later, I found out that the beautiful ankle bracelet the little girl is wearing was designed by her mother.

From the same party, I love the image of this young girl with her mesmerizing blue eyes.

The first time I photographed Chloe was in 2009.  It was a very cold day, but she was such a good sport throughout the shoot. I have been delighted to photograph her many times since.

Looking forward to the next 10 years photographing many more children…….
