Photograph the Generations!

Grandparents are fabulous to photograph because, for the most part, they've given up on being fashion model self-conscious and are more comfortable with who they are. That and the fact that they're absolutely crazy about the grandkids makes for a dream photoshoot. So don't wait until a grandparent is sick or ailing to take photos of them with your children. Make the effort to go get out the camera at every opportunity .

If there's one thing for us to gain from these images, aside from a full heart, it's the reminder that we won't always have them around. So go on, go and photograph the children with their grandparents or book your session. We'll always wish we took more.

You guys!!!! Oh happy scan day!! I can't even with these- I mean I'm OBSESSED! We visited the Griffith Observatory a few weeks back and I've been refreshing my inbox ever since , thank you to The Find Lab for these! I didn't even need to edit any and this is only my 3rd batch of film I've ever shot so I may just be on cloud 9 all day now because I just love them all! (And I was on pins and needles waiting for them hoping they wouldn’t suck!) 

The Griffith Observatory is one of my favorite places to visit in Los Angeles,  known for its extraordinary rooftop views, incredible architecture & design and its beloved gathering space for learning about Astronomy.

CORI KLECKNER PHOTOGRAPHY IS AN ORANGE COUNTY PHOTOGRAPHER SPECIALIZING IN MATERNITY, NEWBORN, BABY, FAMILY, CHILDREN’S AND LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY

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.
