Family Photography: Laguna Beach Family Photography

I photographed this lovely family a week ago @ Emerald Bay in Laguna Beach. The Grandmother contacted me a month ago about their shoot as her Grand-daughter was going to be visiting from Reno. She wanted to capture this moment with photography. Her Grand-daughter is the apple of her eye. I love this images of her, very classic pose & the lighting is beautiful capturing the essence of this little girl.

Family Photography - Moment to Memory

This is my fourth photo shoot with adorable Cianna. One of the best things about being a portrait artist is that I get to watch these kids grow up. It’s like watching a caterpillar turn in to a beautiful butterfly. I’m in awe at the many changes.

Cianna was in my baby video along with Cianna' Mommy. It has almost been a year since we did the video and you can see the changes in Cianna. Children are only tiny for a VERY short time so I like to focus on preserving parent’s memories of their child before they grow up. . . it happens sooner than you know!

I love photographing parent's & the children feet together because it help establish a perspective, and size. Cianna's feet will never be this tiny ever again.

You can see the love in Cianna's Mommy's face as she looks with admiration at her husband. A magical moment.

We did several outfit changes during the shoot for Cianna. Cianna's Mommy had some favorite clothes that she wanted in the photographs.

Kathryn & Mikko - Couple Photography

Once in awhile it is good for the photographer to be in front of the camera. I was over-due. I had been wanting couple photographs of me and the love of my life, Mikko, forever. I picked my favorite photographer, Ben Craig to photograph us. I have worked with Ben on so many weddings and love his style. I planned out the shoot but Ben was the artist in capturing my vision which was to show how much Mikko and I love each other. Thank you Ben!!

I absolutely adore feet shots. I had scouted our location, The Camp & The Lab and knew about these stairs & planned that we would do our feets next to You and Me. I made sure we had stylish shoes, too! This image is going on the cover of our album.

One of my favorite images. I have it on my desk next to my computer. Also, it is in a wall grouping on our living room wall. It shows my pure happiness with Mikko. He is an amazing man and I'm blessed to be spending the rest of my life with him.

Second favorite image, my happily ever after ending.

Awesome mural at the Lab.

We did this shoot back in April on a very cold day the above image was one of the last that Ben took. I was so cold but worth it. That is what I love about photography because you can really tell a story. This is my story with my wonderful man.

Couple Portrait - Dana Point

I backlit the above image and asked him to lift up his wife creating a more soft and tender moment.

They got married in early June at City Hall but still wanted to document this special time in their life with photographs. They asked me to do the shoot at the beach where he proposed.

I asked the guy to look at his wife adoringly and show how much he loves her at the same time having her look directly into the camera.

I like creating a fun and intimate photographs that the couple will treasure forever.

Pretty in Pink - Baby & Children Photography

It is always fun to have a new background to try out. This one is called blush which is perfect for girls. I could not resist testing it out on this shoot with two sisters. They were such angels.

This is one of my favorite images. For a moment she was not thinking of me. No posing at all.

To shoot this image I got up high above her.

Family Photography - Moment to Memory

What a sweet & loving family with twins! The children were so adorable at the beach. I love this portrait above that during post production I put a filter on the image to give a dreamy effect. The Mother loved it, too and that is going to be their wall portrait.

I like when Mom's bring props like these suckers.

Sweet image with son looking up at his Daddy as the family walks along the shoreline.
