When another photographer asks you to document their family , it’s a huge honor but when another photog says they also want to FLY you out to document their family - now that’s a whole other level. The Dinsmore family was a dream to photograph and their home was just epic with every corner full of light & love. I couldn’t wait to share more from this session with you guys but you know when you love something so much you savor it for as long as you can? Yep, thats how I feel about this session. I couldn’t possibly choose a favorite image from this family’s session because they all were my favorite. What makes this session so special? CONNECTION. Yep,  that’s gold for me as an artist. When clients relax, play and laugh , are themselves in front of the lens- it allows me to capture them authentically , all that make up who they are as a family. For this session we literally did the everyday stuff from piggy back rides in the kitchen , to coloring , to story time, cuddles, airplanes- you name it. This mamma had her own beautiful style and love for photography as well, being a photographer herself- so she invested time into the aesthetic of her session , into the vision , and she trusted me whole heartedly as her photographer which I felt deep within-and it allowed me to unleash my creativity + make magic. This session will forever be a favorite that I hold dear to my heart. In-home sessions are just so incredibly heartfelt to capture because it's where your love grows, it's where your babies grow up making memories with you, it's the space of sometimes nostalgia later in years- such a privilege documenting a family in this space. I know I’ve said it before, but in-home family lifestyle sessions are my JAM.

Being an Orange County Family Photographer is such a dream job you guys! Especially when you get to snuggle sweet little babies like this munchkin! She was full of smiles and don't even get me started on those big bright blue eyes! I love these open brown field family sessions because they are so different from the usual scenery we see and make for some really gorgeous scenic shots. The Lowe's family session is definitely going down as a favorite!

It’s always a little nerve wracking photographing another photographer, but I felt so honored when this mamma photog asked me to capture her gorgeous family while on vacation here visiting California. This Huntington Beach Family session was as light & airy as it gets and that's always a favorite of mine. I love how cloudy days offer us that soft diffused light resulting in clean modern family photos. Also, when clients are THIS stylish- it's just the icing on the cake. This mammas neutral pallet wardrobe was to die for and helped create some really dreamy shots of her family! 

 

Thanks Kristin for trusting me to capture your family making sweet memories while visiting here!

Xoxo ,

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!
