Family Portrait Photographer: My Summer Favorites

Family Portrait Photographer:  I always looked forward to summer as a kid, to frolic and play with my friends, enjoy the longer days, take a dip in the ocean and to play in the waves.  I grew up in Newport Beach and never dreamed as a kid that I would grow up to be a Newport Beach family photographer.  Now each year, Summer is a reminder of childhood and the spirit of living in the moment.  Here are a few of my favorites things during the long Summer days:

Favorite Summer Place:  Crystal Cove Beach

Favorite Summer Beverage: Sparking water with a splash of Trader Joe’s Limaide

Favorite Summer Reading: Anything by Amy Harmon

Favorite Summer Movie: Dirty Dancing

Favorite Summer Song: Will Smith, Summertime


Summer is also an amazing time to book an Orange County Family Photography session.  Here are some great ideas for props, etc. to incorporate into your session to make it unique to your family:


  • Red Wagons
  • Popsicles
  • Small US Flags
  • Beach Pails
  • Bubbles
  • Sprinklers
  • Tent on the Beach
  • Balloons
  • Sparkler
