Family Photography Session – Laguna

My favorite time of the year is meeting up with families that I have been photographing for years and catching up. Andrew has grown so big in one year. It wonderful to seeing the changes year after year.I love this image of Andrew. Lisa and David were celebrating their wedding anniversary. I had to get some photos with just them in it. This is one of my favorites. It is the little things that help in posing as I told them to have their heads touched. Making this image more special.

It always great to photograph at different angles. I like being high up above. Can’t wait to photograph this wonderful family in 2018!!! We are planning a session at Soka University in Aliso Viejo.

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!!

Denise and Scott – Couple Photography Laguna Beach

 

Denise and Scott were on their honeymoon. They had gotten married the day before in Utah. Their shoot is all about romance. I met them in Laguna Beach and my first stop was at one of my favorite doors. Can’t beat having a couple kiss under a sign “Always kiss me Goodnight”. When I had enough photos of them kissing, I had to ask a couple of times for them to stop kissing. They were so in to each other. It was very sweet.They were very excited with the high tide and stunned by the beauty of the beach I picked. There was very few people at this beach and it was perfect weather, too.
