Gross Family / San Juan Capistrano Family Photographer

I had such a great time spending time with this family! Jordan and her parent share such an obviously strong bond and it was a beautiful thing to watch.

After our shoot, Jordan and her dad were going to the Indian Princess night and Jordan was so excited! Indian Princess is a fabulous program for fathers and daughters, so if you have a little one at home be sure to check it out!

Enjoy & Happy New Year!

XO, Jessica

Kegel Family Holiday Mini-Session / San Juan Capistrano Family Photographer

This Holiday Mini-Session started out as a family shoot- but we all soon realized that Cody had stolen the show! How cute is that puppy? I wanted to wrap him up in my sweater and throw him in my camera bag. However, I figured they would probably notice ;-). Siera found me randomly through a feature on Style Me Pretty and was just so incredibly sweet! I couldn’t wait to work with her and her family. When I finally met them, I recognized her husband immediately! Travis and I had gone to elementary school together…far too many years ago then I’d like to admit! It was so great to see him all grown up and married to such a wonderful woman.

Enjoy these images of your beautiful family! And…Go Sandpipers!! 😉

Rhiannon & Payton’s Holiday Mini Session / San Juan Capistrano Family Photographer

I met Rhiannon & Payton’s mom, Patty while getting my crossfit on at Eternity Crossfit in San Juan Capistrano! Patty can dead lift and box jump with the best of them and I really admired her dedication and strength. This woman has arms of steel! When she asked me to photograph her girls, I couldn’t say no (mostly because I was scared of what she might do to me ;-)).

I had the privilege of photographing big sis Rhiannon a couple of months before this shoot for her acting head shots. She is bubbly, full of energy & charisma and such a blast to have in front of the camera! Keep an eye out for her; we may be seeing Rhiannon on the big screen in our future! Little sis Payton is such a doll! She totally looks up to her sister and just had the prettiest blue eyes; I could’ve photographed them for days! Together these two make the best sisters- they tease each other as sisters do, they play games and deep down they love each other with all their hearts.

Enjoy Rhiannon & Peyton’s Mini-Session! XO

The G Family’s Holiday Mini-Session / San Juan Capistrano Family Photographer

Juliett first contacted me for her family session back in October- one day before my wedding. It was such a crazy, busy time and giving her a call to talk details about the thing I love most in the world (besides my hubby ;-)), was a welcomed distraction! We set-up a date for November during my Holiday Mini-Sessions and I’ve been anxious to share these images ever since! When I first talked to Juliett, I just knew we would have a great shoot. Not only was she incredibly sweet and trusting, she also asked about wardrobe so I had a feeling they would come dressed to impress! And that they did- I love the fun colors they choose and how well they work against the great outdoors. I also adored the bond that these beautiful twin girls shared; it really just melted my heart.

Enjoy! XO

Family & Baby Session / San Clemente Family Photographer

Wait ’til you see this little one! Baby Addison is SUCH a cutie! One look at her and you can’t help but be in a good mood. I met Addison, her parents and her Aunt at the beach for their holiday photo session and through the wind, sand-eating, smiles and a few tears…we were able to capture just how much this family loves each other! I had a blast photographing them and witnessing all the joy their new baby girl was bringing to their lives. One of my favorite things was watching how Addison’s Daddy looked at her with so much excitement and pride in his eyes. She definitely has him wrapped around her little finger 😉

Enjoy! XOXO

How beautiful is Addison’s Mommy?!
Auntie Love!
