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.

Family Holiday Photography 2017

It is that time of year again….Family Holiday Photos!!! I met Val back in 2008 for head shots. Since then I have photographed many milestones in Val’s life. Documenting when she had cancer, getting married to Charles, many family photo sessions with her son Jordan and step-daughter Charlie. I feel so privilege to photographed this beautiful family.
Love the expression on Charlies face in the Naughty/Nice image.

Val absolutely adored the muted image of her and Charles. It was a favorite!Always like to get couple images besides family and individual images. 

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.

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.

Family Photography in Laguna Beach

The first time I photographed Lauren she was four years old. I recently looked back at those images and I can see all the changes in Lauren. It is rewarding to me as a photographer to capture these moments of Lauren’s childhood. Lauren’s Grandmother has ordered a wall portrait of this image. Seagull, footprints, beautiful girl = perfection!!001ADSC_5137 LogoI love images of children walking.
