It’s been so incredibly busy around here for us photogs trying to juggle busy season that my blog tends to be the first to suffer! I am the first to admit I put blogging on the back burner but know how important it is to keep sharing fresh content with you guys too! I wanted to start by sharing this gorgeous in-home family session in Malibu .

I had the pleasure of documenting blogger & mommy , Roxanne West, and her adorable little family visiting here from Canada! They were vacationing here with HomeAway Vacation rentals and the space we had for the day was seriously unreal! I’m talking ocean view, super kid friendly, cozy little space filled with yummy light & sea salt air! This shabby chic, ocean front beach house had panoramic views of Santa Monica and surrounding LA, large sea level deck and the most adorable built-in-wall bunkbeds! 

Not only was our space breathtaking but The West Family was a dream to photograph! For this session, I really wanted to push myself as an artist to find ways to freeze the connection between them . Lately, as an artist, I have been digging deep within myself , soul searching as an artist, pushing myself to newfound ways to capture families in their most authentic state . For this reason, during the session we did ALOT OF PLAYING. I'm talking coloring pictures, taking polaroids, bed cuddles, tickling, upside-downing, dancing in the kitchen, piggy backs kind-of-playing. I feel this type of play nurtures an environment to capture those authentoc moments , to capture those memories we all want as mommys to look back on one day.

This has to be hands down one of my favorite ever in-home family sessions! If you don’t know already, in-home sessions are my JAM guys! 

The Moore Family recently moved into their new dream home in Cardiff By The Sea. Their is sonething undeniable about an in-home lifestyle session is the overwhelming comfort of home. In this home, kids will grow, love will grow, memories will grow. It doesn’t get much better than witnessing the raw, natural connection that happens between the loved ones under this roof. Watching mom & baby snuggle and the joy of truly playing together without the pressure to document it all perfectly is really where its at!

This family right here though- The Moore Family - they are the warmest and kindest people you could ask to spend your morning with and I am so grateful that I get to call them my friends!

Loved photographing this sweet little family here visiting from Atlanta! Shooting at Little Corona Beach is always a favorite of mine  , nothing beats those cliff views, rocky areas and gorgeous sunsets! Despite the high tide this evening, we were still able to catch some great shots playing along shore, cuddling and strolling the beach! While I love all the candid interaction shots most, I  do still try to snag at least one good image of everyone looking-into-the-camera ...Here are just a handful of my favorites from this Little Corona Beach Family Session!

I love in-home sessions that include bed jumping, tickling, choo-choo trains and giggles! Nothing makes me love a session more than capturing the everyday real stuff! 

This Newport Beach in-home lifestyle session was so fun to capture as big brother stole the show, in a good way! Nothing makes my heart more happy than capturing the love of a growing family!

Corona Del Mar Maternity Session | Little Corona Beach | Tara & Brian+ Furbaby | Cori Kleckner Photography | OC Maternity Photographer


I’ve been loving shooting sessions lately at Little Corona Beach in Corona Del Mar.  Little Corona Beach in Corona Del Mar has a hidden treasure in its rocks near the beach with cliff views and fun tide pool areas for families to enjoy! It tends to get crowded but nothing can keep me away from the views it offers + that yummy golden hour of light on the beach! Tara & Brian were such troopers as it was high tide this day and a little foggy! Regardless , this gorgeous couple made my job super easy with how sweet & affectionate they are, resulting in some pretty memorable shots of them expecting their firstborn ;) Cant wait to meet their new little one arriving soon!

You know you truly have the best job when you get to cuddle newborns everyday! I feel so grateful when clients welcome me into their homes, the space where love grows, to document important milestones for them! These moments can be so fleeting , don’t we wish we could just press pause on time sometimes?

For this in-home session, we kept it classic & simple , really focusing on the details of baby Evan, the bond between them all while leaving out any possible distractions in the background. For newborn sessions I feel its important to have a clean space, free of clutter with lots of open light in a room and of course lots of love ;) I truly aim to capture those timeless moments that you will cherish for a lifetime!

Here are a few sneak peeks from The Lynn Family's Session while I catch up on the full-on-blogging part! ;)
