Photographing Young Siblings // Orange County Baby Photographer

Photographing young siblings can be difficult.  Especially when you have certain expectations in mind.  My advice is to through your expectations out.  Not to sound harsh, but sometimes the best photos are when you let go of the idea of everyone smiling perfectly at the camera.  Photos that capture emotion are always best, so getting the siblings to interact is key.

Asking the older sibling to kiss the baby is a super easy way to get them to interact.  Usually they are happy to do it and sometimes the great photo is the actual kiss and sometimes it’s the moment before or after.

And of course I always love to photograph the siblings alone.  I think they know it’s their time in the spotlight and that’s when the huge smiles come out!

Big Brothers // Long Beach Baby Photographer

He kept telling us that her bow was wrong.  ‘Girls wear the bow on the side.’  He wanted to fix her bow before we started the photo session.  Aren’t big brothers the best?

Also. Her mini espadrilles.  Because everything looks better in a mini-size.

Holiday at Rascals to Rebels

It’s a party!  I love this fringy new holiday backdrop for Rascals to Rebels.  It’s perfect for pretty much any color.  I love it with dark red, but it would also be so pretty with pale pink or any lighter color holiday dress.  Don’t forget to go by the store to make your purchase so you can sign up for a time slot on November 8 and 9.

Pink Chicken Commerical Photo Shoot // Child Photography in Orange County

Today, I’m headed out with some cute kids to scout.  It’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day tasks of running a business.  I get weighed down by the mundane, so this little experience of looking for new places that inspire me puts the wind back in my sail.  I can’t wait to share new places with you that will have you ooohing and ahhing right along with me!

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!

Underwater Photography Sneak Peek

This weekend Kyle and I did the underwater photo sessions and as much as I loved the last time, this year was twice as amazing!  We had so much fun with the kids and I think the parents thoroughly enjoyed watching us!

I’ll do a full blog post later, but for now, here’s a few sneak peeks:

Back to School Mini-Sessions at Rascals to Rebels // Long Beach Child Photographer

I’m so excited to be back at Rascals to Rebels for another round of mini-sessions!  This time it’s for back to school and what a better way to document the new school year than with some fresh photos?  I’ll be at the store September 7 (10am-noon) and 8 (noon-2pm).  A $50 purchase at the store gets you a free 15 minute photo session.  And if you can’t make it in to shop, you can buy a gift card over the phone to reserve your spot and shop later.

The backdrop is a classic dark wood backdrop with a few rustic props (if you want to use them).  The store has so many cute options right now for back to school…go check it out!
