Baby C’s Calendar Shoot! Brea, CA Photographer

This little guy is the adorable baby of one of my good friends that I worked with at the salon before I had Mr. J.  She wanted to put together a calender for her family for Christmas and asked if I would take the pictures, which I jumped at because I wanted to hang out with this adorable guy who I had yet to meet!  He was suuuuuch a sweetie, with the bluest eyes that will melt you right down!  What a sweet surprise this gift will be!!

Bolton Family Fall Session, Tanaka Farms, Irvine, CA Photographer

Sarah, the mom of this beautiful family, is sisters with Theresa from my post a couple entries back and we were lucky enough to be able to photograph both families on the same day at beauiful Tanaka Farms in Irvine, CA.  The last time I saw Sarah and her little guy, I was taking pictures of him for last father’s day as a surprise gift to his daddy, and I can’t believe how much he has grown since then!  He is sooo cute!  This little family was so fun to work with and I love the way they all interact with each other!  Thanks Boltons!!

Otero Family- Fall Shoot, Tanaka Farms Irvine, CA Photographer

I went to high school with this beautiful mama Theresa, but we had no idea who eachother was until a few years ago we met when our hubbys were playing poker together at a friend’s house.  Apparently Theresa and her hubby Frank worked with my husband Mike when they were younger and that’s how they all knew each other.  Fast forward to the present and we are all such good friends now and they are one of our favorite little families to hang out with.  I love everything about the Otero family and I especially love being able to capture all of their great memories through photos. 

For their fall themed shoot Theresa wanted to take her pictures at Tanaka Farms in Irvine and I am so glad we did!  It was beautiful, especially with the sun setting behind them!

Ramirez Family- Fall Session, Carbon Canyon, Brea, CA Photographer

I met the awesome Ramirez family last thursday at Carbon Canyon Park in Brea for their fall themed session.  They had booked a 2 hour shoot but got a little turned around, so we were only able to shoot for a little over an hour, but we worked fast and ended up getting in SO many great shots! 

Their adorable little girl had the sweetest Tinkerbell costume bought by her grandparents for Halloween and she wore it during part of our shoot.  The result was so perfect!  The cutest little fairy in our own little “pixie hollow”!  I loved everything about this session, especially how fun this family was to work with!

Thanks Ramirez family!  It was such a joy working with you!  Can’t wait for our next session in December!!

The Wilkerson Family, Carbon Canyon, Brea, CA Photographer

I had the honor of meeting and photographing this adorable little family!  They were so so sweet, fun and natural that we got so many great shots!  I love when you can see the love a family has for eachother and by these pictures, you can see it!  I’m only about half way done enditing and going through all of the pictures I ended up with (well over 1000!) so I wanted to share a few of my favorites so far!

Adorable Family Shoot, Chino Hills, CA Photographer

This is one of my favorite families to photograph.  They are so sweet and their son has the best hair ever!!  We had so much fun at this little park in Chino Hills, CA.  The lighting coming through the trees and bouncing off the little lake in the middle was just sooo yummy looking!  Loved everything about this shoot!

Liz & Richie: Family Shoot, La Habra Heights, CA Photographer

When Liz contacted me about taking pictures of her and her husband for their 5 year wedding anniversary I was super excited!  Liz was one of my childhood friends and I’m so glad that we reconnected after all of these years!

They are so adorable and their love for eachother is so contageous!

We went for a little off trail hike and found the most beautiful places!  (Liz even did the hike in heels!  What a trooper!)

Meet Elton and Maggie, two of the cutest pugs I have ever met!

Happy anniversary Liz & Richie!  You guys are so blessed!
