Mother’s Day Mini-Sessions // Orange County Photography

mother's-day-1

If you’ve never had portraits with your children, this is the perfect opportunity.  I’ve scouted the most amazing location…it’s peaceful, idyllic and just about perfect.  I’m offering 30 minute sessions (instead of the normal 20) for $100 and a free digital image to the first four that sign up and pay for their session.  I wanted to include some extra time here because, really it truly is gorgeous!  Now, even though this is the perfect session for moms….you can also book it for just the kids or the whole family!

The sessions will be held in Trabuco Canyon on April 26.  I’ll start with 3:30 (filled), 4:00, 4:30, 5:00 (filled) and 5:30.  To secure your spot, either pay through square (all your info will come to me an email) or you can call or email (contact buttons on the left.)

Grandparents // Laguna Beach Family Photographer

It’s special when grandparents are able to be at a photo session.  Not only do they get to make lasting memories with their grandkids, but they have been through parenthood.  They’ve seen it all.  So, they add a laid-back vibe that is wonderful when things can stressful trying to get little ones to cooperate.

If the grandparents are going to be in town (or they already live here) consider adding them to your photo session.  It’ll make your life a whole lot easier.  And, you get the added bonus of photographing them with their grand kids.  Hello, perfect present!

Rascals to Rebels Spring Mini-Sessions // Rossmoor Children’s Photographer

mini sessions in orange county

Hey!  It’s been awhile since I’ve been back at the store.  Christmas was a loooong time ago.  This the upcoming photo sessions, I painted a backdrop with fresh colors that highlight spring.  I’m loving chambray for boys against the backdrop, and all the fun Easter dresses will look amazing too!

Here’s how it works…head into Rascals to Rebels and make a minimum $50 purchase.  Then you’ll be able to sign up for a 15 minute session.  (Can’t make it in?  Call the store to purchase a $50 gift card and they’ll sign you up over the phone.  You can shop at your convenience and still save your spot.)  I’ll be at the store on April 5 from 1-3pm and April 6 from 11am to 1pm doing the mini-sessions.  It’s for kids 12 and under with a maximum of 3 kids per session.  A few days later you’ll be proofing your images online and ordering what you like!  Easy as that and you get them back in time for Easter.

Carmen’s Family // Orange County Family Photographer

I love when all the starts align.  Carmen, the owner of Hip at Heart, emailed me about booking a last minute session in December.  We coordinated our schedules and I was able to fit her in before one of my previously booked sessions at a rural park.  We were texting as she was driving and I was telling her the grass was still a little wet.  At the last minute we ditched the park plan and met in the parking lot of a Jewish synagogue.

The result was nothing short of perfection…the casually chic get-up was able to shine with the simple background.  Not only was everything aesthetically pleasing, the kids were as sweet as can be.  We hugged it out in the parking lot with hopes to do it again soon!

Valentine Mini-Sessions // Orange County and Los Angeles Child Photography

A few weekends ago, I held photo sessions in Los Angeles and Orange County.  It was open to babies, kids and families.  Some chose to go all out with for Valentine’s Day..other kept it simple and just updated their child’s photos for home.  Either way, the weather was beautiful, I got to try out a new location and everyone that came was in a fabulous mood.  That’s the perfect equation! vintage valentine girl

Laguna Beach Mini-Sessions

They’re back!  I’m opening up another round of mini-sessions at a secluded little spot in Laguna.  Last year was so much fun!  There’s so much exploring to do in the beautiful place.

The mini-sessions will be February 17 (President’s Day, so you may have it off work).  I’ll start with morning sessions and if they fill up, I will open up some afternoon sessions as well.  So, email me if you can’t do morning and I will try to do afternoon too.

Cost:  $100 for a 30 minute session (I’m making it longer than my normal 20 minutes because there’s so much to see!)  There will be special rates for digital image packages for the first four clients that book, so you can email about that as well.

Date/Time:  February 17th  9:00, 9:30, 10:00 and 10:30am (but if these fill up, I’ll do an afternoon session too)  And this is plenty of time for just the kids or the whole family.

Yay for February! // Huntington Beach Family Photography

January is the hardest month.  We’re coming off sugar cookies and a constant string of parties.  January just seems so dull.  The most exciting thing happening is the drawers I’m re-organizing.  And let’s not even talk about weight-loss goals.  But, it’s behind us now.  February is a short month, with the highlight of Valentine’s Day right in the middle and even a day off school!  I hope your February is off to a good start.  Are you planning your Valentine’s yet?  I did a round up of free printable Valentine’s over on Modern Parents Messy Kids if you want to check it out.  And in the meantime, here’s a little flash back from a super cute family’s holiday photo session.

Investing // Newport Beach Family Photographer

I was thinking the other day about how important it is to believe in people and invest in them.  Years ago, someone believed in me and bought me a sewing machine.  At the time, I was making little girls dresses out of vintage linens and selling them online.  I was getting by on an old junker of a sewing machine when someone from church told me they loved what I was doing and wanted to gift me a sewing machine that would make my job much easier.

Fast forward a few years and I had saved enough money to quit sewing and buy a professional camera, lenses, a Mac and everything else I needed to start this photography business.  I feel like it was that initial investment that got my foot in the door.  I learned how to run a business through those initial years.

Look around you and encourage those hard-workers in your life.  Whether it’s an uplifting text, watching their kids for the afternoon or spending cash on them…believe in them.  I’m so thankful someone believed in me.

Summer in January! // Irvine Family Photographer

If you’re in Southern California right now, you’re experiencing summer with me.  Isn’t it crazy to be wearing sandals and sundresses?  In January!?!  I moved to LA in January of 1997.  I remember getting on the plane in Missoula, MT with the thermometer reading -7.  I got off the plane during a heat wave, like we’re having right now.  I met my would-be husband that day and I never looked back!  With summer weather year round and a cute guy by my side, I’m still here!

Here’s some more shares from the holiday sessions I did last year in Irvine!
