Carbon Canyon Park Redwoods | Family Session | Amy Clemons Photography

I love being able to watch “my” families grow over the years.  I think that is probably the best part about my job.  Being included as a yearly family tradition in people’s lives is something very special to me.  I first started photographing this family when Gavin (the older brother) was just a baby!  Since then, I’ve been able to watch this family grow with Liam coming along a couple years later.  I have always had so much fun at sessions with this family and this year was no different!  We went up to the patch of Redwood trees at Carbon Canyon Park and explored the forest.  It always feels so magical up there and completely unlike Southern CA.  If you know me, you know I have a heart for adventure and a wanderlusting soul, so this spot always makes me feel like I’ve taken a little trip away.   Thank you Chuu, Connie, Gavin & Liam for allowing me to always capture your memories and more importantly, for your sweet friendship.  <3

30th Birthday Cake Smash

I am so glad my cousin Greg married this girl.  Kristin is literally one of my most favorite people on this planet.  When we get together, magic typically happens.  Happy (almost) 30th Birthday Kris!  Love you to the moon and back! xoxo

Chambers Family | Southern CA Photographer

Guys, I am behind in blogging.  Like super behind.  Like so behind that the baby in this beautiful mama’s tummy is already over a year old!  Eep!  But seriously people, how gorgeous is this family??  It’s always such an honor when other photographers ask you to take their own family photos.  Marley from Two Little Feathers Photography is such an amazing artist and I was thrilled to be able to capture such a sweet time in her growing family’s life!

Conway Family | Southern CA Photographer

I always have so much fun with this family.  I have been taking their photos for a few years now.  Usually we do our sessions at Disneyland because they are Disney addicts (like myself!).  Unfortunately this past session I didn’t have my Disney pass in time so we had to change it up a bit!  Still so much fun running around with them!

My Jackson | Southern CA Photographer Amy Clemons Photography

I haven’t blogged much, even though I’ve been crazy busy shooting weddings and sessions.  I really need to be better about blogging!  I have so many amazing moments to share!

My session yesterday had to get rescheduled because the trails leading to where we want to shoot are muddy from the rain the day before and closed, so I took Jackson exploring in the evening before dinner so he could play with his camera that he has been obsessed with some more. Love him.

It was so sweet to watch Jackson watching me. If I would take a picture of something, he would study what I did and try and replicate the way I stood and the way I held my camera. They learn from watching us. In so many aspects of life, they learn from watching us. I pray that I always keep that in mind with the things that I am showing him and teaching him.

I love that you can see his feet in the bottom corner of this photo of the flower.  He was standing right next to me trying to get the same shot.

Newport Beach Senior Session | Amy Clemons Photography

  I have to start by saying this session is probably one of my favorite recent Senior Sessions.  I always luck out and have the most amazing seniors and McKenna was no different.  This girl was such a natural in front of the camera.  I don’t think I could have taken a bad photo of her if I tried!   We photographed McKenna’s Senior Session down at the beach and it was the perfect setting for her.  I had so much fun planning this with her mama and SO much fun hanging out with them at their session!   She brought so many cute outfits and rocked them all!  We also lucked out and had the most amazing light this night at the beach, which was great because we had to reschedule our original date due to it being completely overcast.

  Thank you so much McKenna and Sonya for allowing me to capture these sweet moments for you all!

Corona, CA Family Session | Amy Clemons Photography

  I can’t get over how blue her eyes are.  To see them in person is incredible!  She is so gorgeous!   I have been photographing this beautiful girl since her 1st birthday.  We did her 1 year old cake smash session in this very same field in Corona.  She was SO tiny then and I cannot believe we just finished up her 4 year old session!  Please stop growing Miss Addison!!

The Villa, San Juan Capistrano Wedding Photography | Mr & Mrs Hughes | Amy Clemons Photography

Oh, Reena and Robert.  Where do I even start with this amazing wedding?  Reena and I have known each other since our days at St Paul High School (Go Swordsmen!).  She was a good friend in highschool, so I was so honored that she and Robert asked me to capture their wedding day.  I always tear up at weddings that I photograph, but when it’s someone that I’ve known for somewhere around 18 or so years (gosh did that date me or what) since freshman year in high school… well the water works were a’flowin!

Reena and Robert chose The Villa in San Juan Capistrano as their wedding venue, and holy cow, this place is amazing.  It is hands down, one of my all time favorite venues.  It is so gorgeous and historic!  Reena’s attention to detail (as well as all of her team that she had helping her put this day together) made it something straight out of a fairytale.  From the flowing garland centerpieces, to the candle-lit reception, it was simply amazing.

Even more amazing was how much love surrounded Reena and Robert that day.  The love they have for each other was so obvious at their wedding it was remarkable.  From the way Robert’s jaw fell open when Reena walked down the aisle, to the way they looked at each other during their first dance… I get chills thinking about it even now.

Thank you, Reena and Robert, for including us on your wedding day.  Wishing you many years of happiness together, and a lifetime of adventure! xoxo
