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.

Gala, Luis and Mia – Orange County Family Photographer

Took these photos of this family two days before they were moving out of state. They love the beaches in California and wanted to have professional photos taken to always remember their time in here. 
We were in the midst of a heat wave and even at the beach it was in the high 80s. Love the expression on all three of their faces.Gala really wanted some couple photos taken of them. I asked Luis to whisper something in her ear that would make her laugh. These are some of my favorite images of them for the expression is priceless.
