M Graduates Elementary School This Year | Tustin Ranch Graduate Photographer

M is in 5th grade at the same school my girls attend.  Our elementary school's go through 5th grade in our district, so we had to grab some soon to be graduate pictures!  The second I saw M I knew we were going to have fun!  She was dressed perfectly and was as equally a perfect model!  And let me tell you, she is the sweetest girl you will ever meet!  Such a beautiful girl inside and out!  Congratulations M on such an accomplishment!  Good luck to you as you move onto middle school!  I hope you enjoy your sneak peek!  As soon as I saw these pictures, I knew I had to go vintage with the processing!  The perfect location and the perfect look for vintage flare!

MY NIECE IS COMING!!!! | Mission Viejo, CA Maternity Photographer

The waiting is almost over!  I am sooooo excited!  This is the 3rd and last maternity session of my brother and sister-in-law before our newborn session of Tallulah!  I am so excited I could shout it from the mountain tops!  See, if you don't know already, my brother and sister-in-law tried for 7 years to become parents!  They have been parents all these years, they just didn't have a baby to show for it, and finally their dream has come true!  We only have 3-1/2 more weeks to wait to meet this much anticipated baby!  God is so good!  And our family has been blessed!

Did I mention that I cry every time I take their picture???  And I am a mess of tears right now!  The happiest tears I have ever cried!

I loved this one in color, and then I accidentally saw it in black and white and LOVED it even more!  Am I crazy to love this one in black and white more than color?  I mean, it's a field, at sunset... shouldn't that be a color image???

L Celebrates her First Birthday with CAKE! | Orange County Birthday Photographer

I had so much fun photographing L for her first birthday in my studio!  Isn't she just the cutest?!?!  My dear friend J, was visiting and we thought it was the perfect opportunity to grab some cake smash pictures!  If you have a child turning ONE consider a cake smash session.  They are so much fun!

Here are a few pictures from before the cake smash, and some from after the bath!  Who can resist a nakey baby?!?!

Sweet M | Foothill Ranch Newborn Photographer

I so, so, so adore sweet M!  Every newborn has sweet little features, and sometimes one just stands out to me and I fixate on how adorable, tiny and precious that feature is!  For M it is her sweet little mouth!  She seems to have so much character in her little mouth, it says so much already!
