The Forbes Family

I had the privilege of photographing Adam & Whitney's maternity photos a couple of years ago, and now I've finally gotten the chance to meet the little guy in person! We did their first family session recently amongst some young Redwoods in Brea, CA. I absolutely adore this family. (And are they stylish or what?!) 

Oh, and just a little fun fact about Whitney. She does RAVISHING work as a calligrapher. If you're ever in need of such services, find her on Instagram... @thehautepress

The Durans

So as you can see in the photographs below, Chino Hills is quite ravishing in the springtime. I had to make sure to take advantage of it again this year. So the Durans and I were able to get together again for some family photos! They are seriously one of the cutest families. See for yourself as you scroll through their spring family photo session!

Christian & Alex

Christian & Alex are some of the cutest parents-to-be I've seen yet. Not only is Alex totally gorgeous, but their chemistry together is undeniable. I love seeing couples who can make each other laugh so much like these two. And to top it off, their little family is going to get even cuter when their little one arrives!

The Centannis got a puppy!!!

So here's a fun little story... When I was 15, I started taking my interest in photography more seriously. An old friend had encouraged me that if I wanted to do it, then I should start doing it, regardless of my young age. I started taking classes. I would walk around my neighborhood and photograph things I thought looked interested, then share them on Facebook. One day, this precious couple, Branden & Evelyn, sent me a message and asked if I would do a photo shoot of them, and how much it would be. I hardly even know these people! And they wanted to give me ACTUAL money to take their photos! They were my first clients EVER. Since then, I've seen their family grow with each shoot. I even had the opportunity of taking their family photos in New York last fall. A soon as I saw their new puppy, Kylo, I knew it was time for a new family picture! They are one of the cutest families, and I'll always look forward to future shoots with them!

The Diaz Family

Fun, little story! I've known this guy since I was 10 years old. We met in 5th Grade Camp! We were good friends throughout middle school, then went our separate ways after going to different schools. After years of not seeing each other, we recently ran into each other and caught up. This prompted him to schedule a mini session. It was so fun meeting his little ladies and watching him be a daddy on his shoot!

The Hernandez Family

I love this family so much!  I had the opportunity to shoot with them again a few weeks ago for their maternity session, getting ready for baby Mateo.  They came looking so precious in their summery wardrobe and flower halos!

The Webster Family

A couple of weeks ago I got together with Ryan, Ruthanne, and baby Emma for a mini session.  Emma is expecting a little sister soon and I cannot wait to meet her!

Jacob, Hailey, & Mariah

The mini sessions really are perfect if you have kiddos.  It's just the right amount of time to take them somewhere fun and pretty (such as this lovely place) and get some photos of them, well, acting like kiddos.  Baby Jacob is seriously one of the easiest kids I've ever photographed!  The very first photo he stood in front of me and gave me a huge grin.  And as you can see here, his sisters are pretty stinkin adorable as well.  Enjoy!
