Genuine Leather Wedding Albums / Jessica Holley Photography

Months of plotting, pinning  and planning came and went and just like that, so did one of the most magical days of your life: your wedding! You settle into your new, more calm post-wedding days and bask in the glow of married life. And when those wedding images are delivered, you get to relive that special time all over again! You excitedly post photos on social media and email them to family…and then, your disc of one of the most important days of your life sits next to your computer, collecting dust. Don’t be that Bride; don’t let your memories collect dust. 😉

I’m so excited to share our beautiful, high-quality wedding albums! We use only the best 100% natural leather in a variety of sizes and colors of your choice. All printing is done on thick, lay-flat pages with archival photographic paper. These albums are made in the good ‘ol US of A and are presented in a dust-cloth to keep your treasured album picture-perfect. Take a look at this sample album created from a recent The Villa San Juan Capistrano wedding. Your album is guaranteed to be a well-loved keepsake and a precious family heirloom!

Cozy At-Home Newborn & Family Session / Orange County Newborn Photographer

You may remember Gary & Carli from their maternity session last month. And my, how much can change in one month’s time. Baby Ryland is here and life will never be the same. The countless baby items that fill the house, the sleepless nights, the trying to figure it all out and mostly, the intense love that brings you to tears.

It’s a time that new parents will treasure forever. I love going to my client’s home for that reason. To shoot in exactly the place where it’s all happening. And as time inevitably passes by much too quickly, a little glimpse is captured to spark those emotions forever.

Congratulations, Gary & Carli. Your little man is perfect. The baby items will be stored away, he will sleep through the night and you will use Google much less often but that love will bring you to tears for the rest of your life.

Enjoy! XO, Jessica

Coto de Caza Maternity Session [Carli + Gary] / Orange County Maternity Photographer

I was so excited to shoot this session from the very first time I was contacted by Carli. There was something just magnetic about her excitement over her baby and I truly could not wait to document such an amazing time in she and Gary’s life.

When I met Carli and Gary it was so obvious just how excited and in love they are. Not only with baby Ryland James (love his name!) but also with each other. I know that they are going to make the most adoring parents and that this baby is never going to be put down. He is going to be spoiled with love (and possibly lots of sweets since his Grandma is owner of the DELICIOUS Nothing Bundt Cakes)!

Congratulations you two! The love you feel now for Ryland is just going to grow to strengths you never knew existed once you see his sweet little face. I am SO happy and excited for you!

I can’t wait to meet him and photograph all of his cuteness. All day now!

Enjoy! XO

Intimate At-Home Newborn & Family Session / Orange County Family Newborn Photograper

I had the pleasure of photographing Marjorie last month for her maternity photos and now Baby Jacob is here! Marjorie was due in the middle of June so when she let me know Jacob had arrived early on May 28th, it was a welcomed surprise; I couldn’t wait to capture all of his newness and Jacob obviously couldn’t wait to see the world!

Those first weeks home are so immensely special. All of the love (and exhaustion) that fills the air after a new family member arrives is unlike anything else. I made my way down to Encinitas ten days after Jacob’s birth to document this beautiful moment in time at their home where it was all taking place.

The morning was filled with a lot of memories: Jacob’s daddy loves vintage automobiles so we made sure to get a shot in his classic truck for a Father’s Day surprise, Jacob’s big sister (although still wondering if he was there to stay) loved holding her brother  and giving him hugs and Jacob’s mommy was every bit a second-time mom; tired but a pro and so in love.

Thank you, Gustafson Family for the honor of recording your first days as a family with Jacob. I’m so happy for you all and look forward to watching your love grow!

Enjoy! XO

San Juan Capistrano Maternity Session [Marjorie] / Orange County Maternity Photographer

There is nothing quite like waiting for your baby. Watching your belly grow. Feeling those first swooshes and swishes. Daydreaming about what he or she will look like. The anticipation and the love grows stronger with each passing day. This is baby #2 for Marjorie and it was such an honor to document this exciting time of expanding her family. The glowing light and the springtime flowers in bloom coupled with Marjorie’s beauty and genuine happiness made this session such a blast to shoot!

This baby boy will be joining his big sister sometime in June and I can not wait take his first photos! Mostly for selfish reason like I miss that brand-new baby smell 😉 I am so excited for the entire family to have this new little man to love. The only thing better than waiting for your baby is meeting him. It’s almost time.

Enjoy! Xo
