Orange County Spring Mini-Sessions at Rascals to Rebels


Did you know it’s only 22 more days until Spring?  Maybe I’m a little excited for flowers and warm weather, although in California, we can’t complain much!

I’m going to be bringing this backdrop to Rascals to Rebels on March 21 and 22 for mini-sessions.  Here’s the details!

  • Spend a minimum of $50 in the store (or call and purchase a gift card) to receive a complimentary 15 minute photo session.
  • Sign up for a time slot on March 21 or 22.
  • You’ll proof the photos on March 23.  You can purchase digital images or prints from your gallery. (photos will be delivered before Easter)

(This event is for kids age 12 and under.)

It’s as easy as that!  I styled a more casual look for these sample photos, but feel free to dress the kids in their Easter best from the store.

Holiday Mini-Sessions in Orange County and Los Angeles // September Dates

When I was pregnant with our oldest, Jake, I planned his nursery, his outfits and every little baby accessory.  All that planning and anticipation is what it feels like as I approach the holiday season being a family photographer!  Months ahead of time, I’m scouting and planning.  Looking up sunrise and sunset times.  Trying to guess what you all will like the best.  I bring back favorites from years’ past and come up with new and exciting stuff too.  I want you to look forward to sending out your family’s cards this year!

I’m starting with the month of September.  Around the middle of the month, I’ll put out the dates/locations for October and in mid-October I’ll announce the dates/locations for November.  As December approaches, it gets crazy busy.  So, as an incentive to book early, the price is the cheapest in September (just like last year).  Woo hoo!

The session fee of $100 holds your slot.  Check out the pricing on the left under the Details + Pricing button.

Here’s what I’ve got!

September 13th 9:30, 9:50, 10:10 and 10:30am

I love this graffiti wall in Santa Monica.  A favorite client introduced me to this hidden gem and I love the poppy colors.  There’s a variety of walls, so don’t worry…you won’t all have the exact same background.


September 14th  5:20, 5:40, 6:00 and 6:20pm

This location is tucked away at a park in Long Beach.  It’s a beautiful rural area that has big trees and gorgeous sunset lighting.  If you want to incorporate your dog, this would be the perfect spot.


September 30th  4:50, 5:10, 5:30 and 5:50pm

A new favorite spot in Laguna Beach has me thinking about Hawaii!  It’s so lush and green with big succulent plants.




Golden Light Summer Mini-Sessions

These will be the last mini-sessions of the summer.  And the last time to take advantage of the summer pricing for mini-sessions before prices go up September 1.  Let’s enjoy sunset lighting at a beautiful park in Long Beach.

Here’s the details:  August 16th and 17th 6:00, 6:30, 7:00

*Yes, it’s later in the day, but trust me, the lighting is worth it.  Hopefully later summer bedtimes will work for us here!

**This type of session is for babies, kids or families.

$100 for a 30 minute session, special summer pricing for your digital images.  Click on the details + pricing link on the left to see pricing.

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


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.)

October Dates for Holiday Mini Sessions // Orange County Family Photographer

September mini-sessions have been fabulous!  Want proof?  Check out my Facebook page full of sneak peeks!  I’ve added FIVE more dates for October…check out the details below.

Here’s how it all works…the mini-sessions are 20 minutes long.  They are back to back at the specified location.  Sign-ups are done via email or over the phone.  Payment of the $100 session fee saves your spot.

This month, I will be running an October Special.  It gives you the option to purchase a the flash drive of all your re-touched high resolution images, which is about 25 for $400 (normal price $650).  If you sign up right now, you don’t have to commit to this can just pay the $100 session fee and order a la carte (pricing on the left).  But, it’s a great deal and only available for those that sign up for these October dates.

Once you sign up for a photo session, you’ll be emailed the directions and specifics.  Also, I might be able to squeeze in one or two dates and locations in November once these are filled.
