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.

This adorable twin newborn portrait session is one of my all time favorites, double the love and double the sweetness! The Garber Family has always been a dream to photograph! It can always be a bit tricky coordinating a toddler + two brand new littles but these guys made parenthood look easy! Loved hanging out with this sweet family and cant wait to photograph all these little munchkins again as they grow up! In-home sessions are always a gem to document!

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.

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!

“But there's a story behind everything. How a picture got on a wall. How a scar got on your face. 
Sometimes the stories are simple, and sometimes they are hard and heartbreaking. 
But behind all your stories is always your mother's story, because hers is where yours begin.” 
-Mitch Albom
