Can you believe how amazing the California Super Bloom is? If you have dreamed of a flower field photography session, now is the time to book while they are still in bloom. I have literally been waiting years for the mustard to grow this lush once again. I took this image in 2013, the last time we had a super bloom.

Fast forward to 2019 and the mustard is once again blooming and looking so gorgeous. I was lucky enough to help celebrate this gorgeous girl’s first birthday! My mother in Law, Ginny, gave the Anderson’s a gift certificate for their wedding present to get a family portrait. The Anderson’s raise service dogs. They have such big hearts to raise a dog from the puppy stage and bond with it. Then once the dog reaches 18 months, they give it to a person needing a service dog. Unfortunately, their now family dog, Siri, didn’t make it through the program. The good news is, she got to stay with the family and become the fourth member of the Anderson family.

Baby Olivia was a totally dream to photograph. With her sweet dimples and even better disposition, she actually loved the camera. Thanks so much to the Anderson family for braving the chilly weather in order to make sure that the fields were still blooming. Enjoy!

I am so excited to share this gorgeous Orange County newborn photography session. Baby Cruz was born at the end of January. As you probably know (if you red my Austin Blog post), I took January off to explore Austin. Unfortunately, while I was gone, I missed the birth of baby Cruz. Christin (his Mama) and I were hoping that he would wait until I returned, so I could photograph the birth.

Not to worry though, we still managing to schedule a newborn session in her home, in Costa Mesa, for early February. My favorite place to shoot a newborn portrait session is in my client’s home. Let’s face it, birth is stressful. Not to mention sleepless nights, and Mom adjusting to feedings and having a new little person to care for. My suggestion for families with a newborn baby is to just relax and let me and my crew shoot around the clutter. I am an expert at finding the best lighting in a client’s home and I love to shoot newborns as lifestyle photography. By that I mean, just having Mom and Dad, and maybe even siblings, love on the baby while I capture these moments to cherish forever.

I met Christin when she referred me to one of her clients for Branding portraits. Christin owns and runs a personal concierge service called Christin Milan Boutique Concierge Services (click on the link on check her out). Christin is one of those people who you just love immediately because she is so warm and bubbly. And she is absolutely head over heels in love with baby Cruz and her sweet husband Mel. Enjoy the slideshow and some of my favorite images from the session!
