Newport Beach Fun Zone: Soares Family Portraits

I started Blue Sky’s in 2002, as Blue Sky’s Salon and Studio.  So much has changed over the years. I no longer have a retail store, I have worked from my home and then again from a studio, I have had a large staff, and then a small staff again, I have expanded our photographic services to weddings, high school seniors and commercial photography along with our original family photography.

A few things haven’t changed!  I have still been so fortunate to surround myself with amazing people.  Georgia Soares is one of those rare people that despite adversity, is still a bright, positive and uplifting person.

I originally meet Georgia through one of my high school friends.  Over the years Blue Sky’s has photographed her four beautiful daughters for so many fun occasions.  One of my favorites from when they were very young was, all the girls dressed up in their Kentucky Derby dresses and hats.  We have shot for Mother’s day, the family on the beach and many more.  

As with lots of clients, as the girls got older and their family changed, I didn’t see them as often.  Georgia survived a horrific illness, the girls got busy with sports and social commitments…. things changed.

Fast forward to March 2016, the oldest Soares girl is out of high school, two are in high school and the baby is in 8th grade.  I had the amazing opportunity to capture all the girls as young adults.  It was so fun to laugh and catch up and hear all about their lives for the last few years.  This is just an amazing, close family.  I feel so blessed to have had the opportunity to once again capture portraits of them.  Here is a highlight slideshow of just a few of my favorite images from the day!  Enjoy:
