Chloe – Orange Children Photography

I have been photographing Chloe since she was five years old. That is what I love about my job is seeing children blossom before my very eyes. I enjoy working with Chloe’s Mom as she has such great taste in planning out Chloe’s wardrobe. Now that Chloe is 10 years old she has a say on what to wear for her photo shoots. She picked out the plaid shirt, jeans and boots. 007 LogodWe photographed at the Los Rios District in historical San Juan Capistrano. It is one of the oldest areas in California dating back to late 1700’s and early 1800’s. 034 Logo

Family Urban Photography – Orange County Family Photography

For over a year now, I have been doing a lot of commercial shoots with Dave so I have really gotten to know him. His nickname is Chicken Dave and he is just full of high energy, funny and very nice. I finally talked him in to letting me photograph his family. We did the shoot at The Lab and Camp which has so many great backgrounds. It is an awesome venue for an urban shoot. The kids were so well behaved. 
The above image is my favorite photograph that I have taken this year. By having the parents hold hands behind their children’s back, you can feel the love in this family with this one image.Playful and fun image. Also shows the height difference of each kid. They will never be this size ever again but I capture it forever in the above image.Dave Logo FAM_canvas_GRIDS copyCute….cute..cute… the kids are adorable!!!!
