The A Family Session : Orange County Photographer

My favorite thing is when families pick a location that is meaningful to them for their photographs.  Last year, the A family asked me to photograph them at their favorite beach and this year at their favorite park.  This also allows me to explore new locations!  I had photographed at this park in Costa Mesa before, but the family showed me their favorite spot which was a bit hidden and tucked away.  I never knew that corner of the park existed and it is beautiful!

It is incredible how fast kids grow over the course of one year.  Mila and Marcel are so tall now!  I can’t wait to see how tall they get next year.

I think that mom Tanja must have been a fashion stylist in a previous life because just look at their outfits!  Pure perfection.  Last years outfits were just as gorgeous too.

Little E’s Newborn Session : Orange County Newborn Photographer

Miss Emily was such a dream for her newborn session a few weeks ago.  She slept for most of the session which made my job incredibly easy.  The only downside to that is I didn’t get very many baby cuddles in.  I love my baby cuddle time!  🙁

I posted a few sneak peeks from Emily’s session a while back and now here are the more images from our time together.
