As an Orange County Family photographer I alway strive to find the perfect location for family sessions, locations that allow for great scenery, and also allow for children to run and play which really allow me to capture those candid family moments. Newport Beach is one of my favorite locations to do family beach sessions, and the O'Brien Family was so much fun to work with. Their beach Family Session really allowed me to capture the perfect sunset photos with their children.

Loved this modern natural light in-home session with The Levins Family! Their home was a dream to photograph as it was full of bright whites and touches of mid-century style,  and lots and lots of love! I cannot tell you guys enough how much I adore getting the opportunity to document family sessions in the space where their love grows!

This Orange County Newborn Session was a dream to document ! This sweet little guy, Ford, is so animated and full of joy while embracing the new addition to his family . 

I love getting to watch families grow!

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!

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!

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!

A few of my recent clients have asked me , “Does the time of day you shoot at the beach make that much of a difference?”

Heres my answer : The golden hour occurs from about half an hour before, until about an hour after sunrise in the morning, and then an hour before sunset, to about 20 to 30 minutes after the sun has gone down in the evening. When you shoot in this soft light the light is golden in colour and often changes colour from yellow, to orange to magenta. 
-The light is soft, i.e. no major contrast such as hard shadows and very bright highlights. 
-Colors are more exaggerated, the color of the light is far more emphasized, much more oranges, reds and magentas are visible in the scene.
It is for these reasons that photographers choose to shoot in the early morning or early evening, these times produce the most dramatic images.

Many of us were taught to shoot under bright sunlight, in the middle of the day, with the sun behind us. Sure, that can work, but you won’t get dramatic results every time, in many cases, your images will look very average. This is because light is harsh at this time of day.

So to many of you who are wondering, yes, the time of day can make a HUGE difference in the outcome of your photos.

This sweet family invited me into their home to document their new little addition to the family . When I entered into this nursery that this mamma pieced together and designed for her little girl arriving , my jaw about dropped. For starters, every last detail was so intentional and the color palette was pretty much a photographers dream!  Second, big brother Fin was super excited to show off his new little sister and definitely stole the show (in a good way) Every mamma wants their baby’s first ever room to be special and Nicole definitely nailed it ! I mean c’mon,  look at that hand made bracelet with baby girls name spelt out, how stinkin cute & personal is that?!

The aesthetic of this nursery is honestly to die for and I couldn't stop swooning over it our entire session, clicking away on my camera.
