A huge part of my marketing effort is to support schools…. all schools both public and private.  So when JSerra asked me to donate to their Gala, I gladly agreed.  Lucky for me, the Roman family purchased the gift certificate.   This family had always wanted to do a family photography session, but were nervous that it would be a hassle, and that they wouldn’t know how to smile, pose, etc. etc.

The Romans showed up at the session dressed in perfect Spring colors.  Spring is the perfect time for family photography and, as you will see, the parks in Orange County are gorgeous at this time of year.  As is typically with a Blue Sky’s session, we just started off being silly together.  Lots of dumb jokes, and hugs and tickles made this session just really fun and relaxed.   Right when the session was complete, both Mom and Dad said they had so much fun, they wished they hadn’t waited so long to photograph their family.  As I told them, it is never too late to start.  I can tell already, this wonderful family with now become a part of our Blue Sky’s family!  Enjoy!

Its not too late to book your 2014 senior session!  This last few weeks have been crazy busy with clients squeezing in their grad sessions before the actual ceremony.  I have been to the beach, open fields, funky coffee shops, stadiums, shopping centers, etc. to shoot 2014s graduating class.  Each senior session this year has been unique and custom designed for our clients.

I am always a sucker for Spring flowers and beautiful backlighting, so here is a recent session in Laguna Niguel Park.  Enjoy! ;)  To book a session, please email me at kristin@blueskysstudio.com (don’t forget two s’s between skys and studio).



I love a big, happy, crazy, silly, challenging family photography session!  Seriously, this gets my heart pumping and my creativity flowing!  I love jumping around, making a specticle, just to get kids to laugh.   I guess this was why when I looked at the time, almost two hours had past and it seemed like no time at all while photographing the Montgomery family.  Each year they do a camping vacation in San Clemente State Park with lots of family and friends.  They start their trip off with a family photography session.  I love this tradition, as it really captures the story of this family over the years.  Thanks to their whole family for being amazing to work with!  I will let the images from the day, tell it all!  Enjoy!

I love school auctions!  It is a chance to help out the school systems, get in touch with a new group of families and create new work.  These three totally cutie gals came from my elementary school alma mater, so it was even more fun!  And cause, yes, they are three girls, it was all about pink! I don’t pull out the pink couch much… I actually traded it with one of my really good girl friends for her cream and black couch, so it isn’t even mine, but this time it just worked out.

Thank you you so much to the Dishon family for letting me play in the leaves with your beautiful girls and for supporting Mariner’s Elementary school! :)

I need to spend the time each year just being inspired!  That means trying out new props, new lighting techniques, new clothing, new location, etc. without time constraints.  That is good news for all of you who are looking to have an artistic experience with your portrait art!   I am offering these sessions at a discounted rate, along with 10 fully edited digital files and 1 wall portrait.  Now if you are members of my Blue Sky’s family, then you know this is an incredible deal, cause I don’t sell digital files (they are only available with our largest collections).
