Being an Orange County Family Photographer is a dream guys! Their is seriously nothing I was more destined to do . I love capturing these first moments for families and everyday I am so grateful that you choose me to document it for you! Their is such an over-abundance of joy when a baby arrives , it's always important for me to help you to remember these precious (and sleep depriving ;) moments that can be so fleeting! When a family invites me into their home, I aim to capture that effortless raw everyday beauty . I love to step back and ask parents to just stare at their little munchkins features, let the baby move, yawn, and stretch.  Babies have wonderful, perfect, sweet movements, so I do not stress over having the perfect pose in every frame. If theirs an older sibling in the session, tickling is a must! Play airplane with them, let them include their favorite toy, talk with them about their little sibling, whether it be "Can you find your sisters nose?" or "Lets give love to the baby!"  Remember, lifestyle photography is about capturing moments, not poses. That’s pretty much the best part – you don’t have to stress about making everything perfect – you just want to get your newborn an griwing family on camera, so you have photos to remember them by.

Motherhood travels through many seasons of life, often going undocumented. Capturing the details that make up the story of a mother awaiting the arrival of her baby or the raw beauty that exists while life is stirring inside her; this journey is worthy of recording in a photographic form.

In-home family sessions are less posed and less forced. I cannot even begin to tell you how much excitement I get when a family suggests to do their family photos in the comfort of their own home, where their is so much story to tell and so much rawness! Opening up your home for photos allows your children to feel relaxed where they tend to warm up much faster for the camera, bringing out those genuine smiles and connections between siblings and parents!

This documentary in-home session was full of cuddles, laughter, bed jumping & even some tickling & chasing! It is such an honor to be welcomed into your home to capture a little piece of those real-every-day-moments.

So if you’re debating on the location of your next family session because maybe the beach and park have already been the previous years choice, consider doing a family session in your home for the next one!

I had the pleasure of documenting this sweet little munchkin, whom happens to also be my niece, only 3 days new! I truly can’t put into words how lucky I feel that parents choose me to document one of the most delicate and precious milestones in their lives! 

When photographing newborns, I aim for simplicity. I  hope to leave you with photos that tell the story of their entry into this world , that reflect the strength and beauty of a mothers love and the strong bond in all of its newness . Since I document these families in the first weeks after birth, I understand parents are sometimes sleep deprived, moms are wearing their emotion on their sleeves - but it always moves me at how tangible their love is. I then have the obligation to portray in it my photos, its just so raw and amazing!

The newborn stage is a fleeting moment; those wrinkles, those rolls, that flaky skin, those teeny tiny delicate features... all gone in the blink of an eye! Capturing it all is an investment you will never regret!
