Orange County Family Photographer - {The Brown Family - Mini Session!}

I was so excited when Christine signed her sweet family up for our Holiday Mini Sessions! I had a great time hanging out with the Brown family and following the kids around on their adventures again!

Thinking about having holiday photos taken of your family? The mini sessions are over, but there is still time to squeeze in a portrait session and get cards in time for the holidays! Just get in touch for more info! :)

Love this picture of Aurora checking out these soft little flowers :)

You are beautiful Christine! :)

San Juan Capistrano Engagement Photography - { Kayla & Eric : Engaged! }

Kayla and Eric are just straight up down to earth, fun, awesome people. Thats the truth. 
When we first met over the summer I was SO excited about them. Their summer wedding plans sound so sweet and perfect, but more than anything I am pretty darn excited to just celebrate with these two at their intimate wedding. I cannot wait. 

But I am clearly getting ahead of myself! So we met up and I photographed these two at Mission San Juan Capistrano , it was my first time shooting there (and hadn't visited since I was a kid) . I got there a little early after my drive and explored a bit....and I was floored. This place is packed full of amazing little spaces and TONS of beautiful texture! Needless to say, I had a bit of a field day! :) 

Kayla & Eric, I am seriously so excited to call you two friends, and just cant wait to celebrate your love on your big day! Hope you enjoy your preview! :)

Here are some of my favorites from their engagement session:

When I was exploring before the couple got there, I snagged this little gem :)

One of my favorites!

Kayla, you are STUNNING.

Apparently all of this amazing texture put me in a serious black and white mood ;)

 Ummmm yeah. Seriously, just sexy. Beautiful and sexy. 
Don't know about you, but this little diptych kinda makes me melt. Love these two!!!!

This smile could light up a room!

Orange County Newborn Photographer - {Baby Jack is here!}

I'm sure you remember Katie's maternity portraits on the lake from last month? Well I am so excited to report that sweet baby Jack is finally here! I went over to visit the Alexander family , and cuddle this sweet new addition, and snagged a few pictures while I was there.
Seriously, how much more precious could one little guy be?!

 Jack has the most gorgeous grey-blue eyes!

Pretty sure this is my favorite :)

San Juan Capistrano Engagement Photography - { Ally & Mark : Engaged! }

Hello friends! Can I just take a moment to express how giddy I am that it is officially fall!? This is by far, my favorite time of the year! November = the temperature lowering, scarves and sweaters, mine and my hubby's birthdays , lots of family portraits , Thanksgiving (how I LOVE turkey and mashed potatoes) , lots of baking, cinnamon sented everything, and the holiday vibe! Its just a magical time of year! And I have to say that showing off Ally & Mark is the PERFECT way to welcome in the fall! :) 

From the moment I met these two, I knew that I just had to photograph their wedding! From the moment Strawberry Farms left her lips, to hearing about all the fantastic details she had in mind, and then their super sweet personalities - I knew that we were a match made in heaven! :)
I have had so much fun seeing all of Ally's adorable wedding idea pins on Pinterest, and I have to say that every singe one gets me SO excited for their wedding - I just wish I did not have to wait till June! 

Ally & Mark, you two make one stunning couple! I had such a fun time with you guys walking around San Juan Capistrano, climbing on heavy machinery, and stomping around ankle deep dirt in my flip flops with you guys! ;)  I am seriously SO excited for your big day! Hope you enjoy your preview. :)
