Unexpected Surprises // Los Angeles Child Photographer

We all know sometimes things don’t go as planned.  But sometimes it makes things even better!  I was doing a photo session at a location that I had chosen for it’s golden leaves and big trees.  We were walking through the park and discovered a little patch of long grass and the twins wanted to go in and explore.  It turned out that these photos were some of my favorites.  I love the depth of field and how these little ones go from serious discovery to all kinds of joy written on their face.  Hurray for unexpected surprises!

Being a Older Sibling // Orange County Baby Photographer

All the high-fives and heart eyes go to sweet toddlers that are willing to cuddle their newborn sibling.  Did you know that transitioning a toddler from being an only child to being a big brother or sister is tough?  I was reading a study that likened the transition to a husband bringing a mistress home to his wife.  It’s a little dramatic, but the thought of going from the only star to having to share the spotlight must feel that way to a 2 or 3 year old.

Thank goodness for easy going siblings that slide into their role as big sister or brother with the greatest of ease.

Overcast // Orange County Maternity Photographer

Sometimes clients get sad when the sun goes away.  I get it…there’s a lot of beauty in the sun peaking out from the trees.  But, there’s also a lot of beauty in the subtle way that clouds mute all the colors and make them into a watercolor painting.

My job, as a photographer, is to take the situation (whatever it might be) and make it work.  So, if it’s bright and sunny, I’m making the light work for me.  If it’s cool-toned and overcast, I’m gonna make that work for me too!

This maternity session is the perfect example of a beautiful overcast day.

Make it your own // Los Angeles Family Photographer

I’m feeling all the feels for this adorable family in their converse and poppy clothes!  Really, I just love when a location comes together with the people I’m photographing.  This set of urban walls was found in Santa Monica, CA.  A client of mine told me about it and I thought it would be perfect for those that wanted something a little different.

Each family I photographed in this location took a different route.  Some did lots of neutrals, others dressed it up a little.  I love how everyone made this unique space their own.

Having fun

I know that a perfectly posed family photo is a must for every photo shoot.  But, I’ve also gotta say that my very favorite photos are the ones with movement and laughter.  After I get the photos where everyone is smiling and looking at the camera, I get the fun started and then I just move around, capturing every angle.  It really is my favorite part of the photo session!
