As many of you know, I refer to the Montage beach as my personal office.  I know, it is crazy that I am so lucky to call such a gorgeous spot my personal work space.  It was great to get back to it with this fabulous family, The Burons!  They so graciously got into a bidding war for the session and Canvas we donated to St. Marys of all Angeles school in 2009.  It is always fun when I get to meet the families at the auction and even better when they tell me they outbid the competition for a chance at a Blue Sky’s sitting!  Despite being a VERY WINDY day, we got some beautiful images.  Buron family, thanks so much for playing with me and I am thrilled to hear that not only was the shoot not painful for the kids, but that everyone had a great time!

Wow, Mary and Clint contacted me just a few months ago saying they would be in Laguna Beach for their wedding in April and were looking for a photographer.  As most of you know, I typically require that all brides and groom work with me on an engagement shoot prior to the wedding so we get to know each other.  I was a little worried about this wedding, since I did not meet Mary until the day before the ceremony.  BUT… there was no need to worry because we hit it off immediately.  Mary was so warm and funny and I knew that we would have a great time on her wedding day.  Clint was so obviously in love with Mary and the two of them were a BLAST to work with.  Thank you both so much for including Jessica and myself in your special day!  Here is a sneak preview of some of my favorite images!

This was just a quick shoot of one of the cutest girls on the block with our new backdrops, let me know what you think!!

Wow, I have forgotten how crowded the Mission can be with photographers on a Saturday afternoon.  Lucky for me, the Edwards family is as “cool” as they get.   Their daughter obviously has star quality and is such a pleasure to photograph.  Even when she wasn’t in the portrait, she was still posing off to the side.  Her mom and dad were truly a joy to work with!  They just renewed their vows after being married for ten years, and you can really see how much they love each other.    We were literally ALL over the Mission grounds and all three were so sweet and funny.  Here are just a few of my favorite images of the day!
