Happy first birthday Isabel! May you always delight in the wonders above.
Why did I not do this for all of my kids on their first birthdays?! Lauren poured herself into creating the perfect cake smash photo session for baby Harper (you can see all the details in these images), and totally knocked it out of the park. This is just the coolest family. Super talented, down-to-earth, loving and just all around amazing folks.
The Melnik family flew in from Colorado for a work-related trip, and capitalized on the opportunity to be photographed by the beach. They timed their trip perfectly – the day of their session, it was in the 80’s, and then just two days later Orange County was covered in rain. Not only did the weather cooperate, but so did their baby boy, who was all smiles for the first 30 minutes of the shoot. This is AMAZING for any baby his age, much less one traveling and in the middle of jet lag! It all came together for these sweet out-of-towners!
Here is another family whose babes have grown up in front of my camera. I love that the Kelly’s are always up for something different every year. This year the city was the perfect spot to photograph their kids’ doing the things that epitomize childhood at their ages – jumping rope and maneuvering a remote car. Absolutely worth documenting.
This little girl just cracked me up the whole session. She was so funny, striking poses left, right and center. CHARACTER, that’s what she’s got, and I love it! So fun to capture her little bro while he charged down the dock, and to welcome her baby sister to this sweet family’s annual fall photo sessions. Year five, Dinsmoors! Love and hugs to you!
