Holiday Family Portraits in Orange County CA

Introducing the Murray Family and what a lovely family they were during our Holiday Family Portraits in Orange County CA family shoot. They wanted a woodsy look to their pictures so they drove all the way to Coto de Caza for our photo shoot since I knew of the perfect location. That’s what I call dedication! They were such a fun filled and happy family and their little girl kept giving me a hard time because I happen to tell […]

Chung Family Portrait Photographer Laguna Beach

It was such a pleasure to photograph the Chung Family Portrait Photographer Laguna Beach before the end of summer. We chose the beach location due to the perfect weather, like it always is in Southern California, and I couldn’t be happier of the results! The Chung family and their girls were so cute and I think they did a great job during the session. The younger girl was feeling a little under the weather, but with the help of her […]

Laguna Beach Portrait Photographer Orange County

I had a wonderful opportunity to photograph the Rockoff family during my Laguna Beach Portrait Photographer Orange County gathering. They have adorable triplets who just loved to pose for the camera. Mom and Dad definitely have their hands full with these three kids, it was hard enough trying to wrangle them and have them sit still during our photo session. One of the girls wanted to see more of the ocean, another girl wanted to chase seagulls and pet any […]

I truly enjoyed photographing Annie and Amanda for their High School Senior portraits in beautiful Irvine CA. These two were so funny together and you can really see the love and friendship these two have for one another. They are unfortunately going to different schools for college so I got to see some of the emotion and tears as they talked about their stories and upcoming journeys. I’m excited to see what these two achieve in life and see how […]

Orange County Family Photographer in Irvine CA

As Orange County Family Photography in Irvine CA there is a ton of competition within the local area. One of my favorite parks to shoot at, which has a rustic and a woodsy feel is located directly in Irvine CA. When you arrive at a prime time, for example, just before sunset you will have to battle for location and strategically place yourself and your families in the right place to avoid any other photographers and make sure not to […]

Brittani and Carlos Maternity

Brittani and Carlos Family Maternity Photographer Coto De Caza

I had an amazing opportunity to photograph Brittani and Carlos to celebrate their new addition to their family. I already knew that Brittani was an amazing person before our shoot, however, as we talked more during the photo session I found out that she still runs Marathons while pregnant! That totally blows my mind. I mean 1) she’s pregnant and that into itself is just amazing. 2) Brittani still runs half marathons while being very pregnant! Now that’s an amazing feat. […]

Cosplay at Anime Expo 2016

Totally enjoyed the cosplay at Anime Expo 2016, there was a good selection of cosplayers from newbie to experience levels! I love any good ole’ cosplay, however, I tend to take pictures of cosplayers who are unique and can show they take their craft seriously! Looks does play a huge part, so make sure your portrayal of your selected character is complete, in addition I also think your characters personality should show through along with their poses. Even though you […]

The only cars allowed were the ones dropping off celebrities in front of hundreds of screaming fans. The start of the red carpet is where the celebrities would enter and on the other end, an […]
