San Clemente Session [Bruno Family] / Orange County Family Photographer

This mother and daughter duo is one of my all-time favorite sessions! What’s not to love about this magical shoot.

That dreamy location, the real moments captured between Sloan and her Mom and that epic San Clemente sunset- I was blown away! I could’ve photographed them for hours. When we first met, Ashley expressed that she really wanted to document she and her daughter with candid photos, real moments and wind blown hair for Sloan without clips or bows. Just natural. Just real. Just authentic. And inside I was squealing! It’s what I strive to do in all of my sessions and I knew we were a match made in photography heaven.

Being a mom myself, this session really spoke to my heart. I know how fleeting these moments are with our little ones. And how we as Moms, rarely get in the photo. So often we are behind the lens. What a beautiful gift to both Sloan and her Mommy.

Sit back, scroll and take in all of their LOVE.

San Juan Capistrano Mini- Session [Jack Family] / Orange County Family Photographer

I’ve been photographing this family for years now and watching Ryan and Dylan grow has been SO much fun! They are so incredibly handsome and such typical BOYS. Goofy, playful, wild brothers and the things I say to make them laugh can’t really be talked about on the blog 😉 This Girl Mama gets to see just how fun it would be to be a Boy Mama watching these two! They way they love their gorgeous Mom is so sweet to watch. She is so calm and collected with them and as a Mom, it’s inspiring to observe.

It was a total JOY capturing Ryan & Dylan’s individual personalities and I’m looking forward to documenting their cuteness much more in the future!

San Juan Capistrano Fall Mini- Session [Viefhaus Family] / Orange County Family Photographer

Between my busy Fall season, the Holidays and #momlife…my blogging has taken a back seat. But today, that ends!

Super excited to dive back into it, starting with this super awesome family of four. I met the Viefhaus family during my Fall Minis and I couldn’t get enough of their playful, laid-back energy and the connection they share. I mean, check out this teenaged brother and sister genuinely getting along! And the way Daddy’s girl grabs on to his arm. Both without any prompting.

Getting to capture their love was truly an honor for me. Thank you, Veifhaus Family!
