Laguna Beach Family Portraits in Emerald Bay

I love meeting up every year with families that I have photographed many times. Especially with generations with the Grandparents. The Grandparents live in Laguna Beach at the beautiful Emerald Bay and when their son, daughter-in-law and grand-daughter come to visit from Reno every summer, we meet for their annual photo session. 002 Just happened to get lucky to have a sailboat in the background.

008009The grandmother loved this image of Lauren and is ordering a wall portrait. That is what I like about the beaches in southern California we have so much vegetation with flowers and cactus plants growing. You can get many different backgrounds besides the sand and ocean. 011At Emerald Bay, they had a building that I popped Lauren in front of as I liked the color and lines.

006The Grandmother had this to say about the images, “OMG..so cool, they’re adorable”. Which makes me so happy.

Home for the Holidays! Family Portraits

Here is this wonderful family that I have photographed at the beach, park, city hall (Pasadena) and finally in their beautiful craftsman home. Which is great to captured their lifestyle. This year they adopted a rescue dog, name Pete. Who is adored and loved by all especially Erin. She just beams when looking at Pete.  006005 004Such a cute sweater dress on Erin. Jack is ten years older than Erin so I always have to pose them in ways that you do not see the huge height difference between the two of them. 041adsc_5292-fill-lightErin has a dream bedroom with shades of pink!!!020034029

Mission in San Juan Capistrano Family Photography for the Holidays

The first time I met Andrea was about three years ago to photograph her son, Josh for his senior session. Since then I have photographed the family several times. Josh has a beautiful girlfriend with the greatest smile. It was great addition to the family session to have her there. It maybe fall but the flowers were in full bloom at the Mission.
