Dreamy and Vibrant French Styled Wedding at Rancho Las Lomas

 
 
417A1024.jpg

The inspiration behind this shoot is to celebrate the beauty of Rancho Las Lomas and the freshness of living in Orange County. Soft butter yellow hues embrace the delicate rays of the sunlight, while the blue tones resemble the clear crisp skies. This palette was meant to pop out against the terracotta throughout the venue and embrace the blue tiling at the Teatro. The romantic feel that is prominent throughout the property is brought in with a mix of modern and vintage decor pieces…French style seating, fragile glass china, and crystal hanging light pendants. All attendees and viewers should feel as if they have been transported outside of Southern California to create a unique photographic story through the design elements provided at the shoot.

Makayla's First Birthday comes with a Smash!

R.T and Laura are those customers who hold a special place in my heart.  One of the many reasons why is because I have been capturing many of their special moments and they are simply awesome humans! I still can't believe how quickly Makayla has grown, I have seen Makayla grow right before my eyes.  I have had the opportunity to capture her newborn session, her first Halloween, half birthday, her first Christmas, and to now her First birthday.  I feel incredibly happy knowing that I have friends who trust me in document special moments in their lives.  

The best part about Makayla's parents is the way they go all out for all of their sessions.  I love how excited Laura gets.  She goes all Martha Stewart on props and creates amazing masterpieces.  So much so she even went to the extent of baking Makayla her cake for the session, which by the way it was extremely delicious.  

Happy Birthday Ms. Makayla I can not wait to share more of these special moments with you and your family!  

 

New Born Session: Baby Jacob David

There is nothing sweeter than seeing a new mommy taking care of her first born. Jocelyn is so infatuated with baby Jacob, she holds him like a precious pearl.  I do not blame her, he is such a cutie! 

It was a pleasure to photograph such a special moment in David and Jocelyn's life.  Their energy throughout the shoot was filled with nothing, but happiness! 

  I am happy to say I am slowly figuring out my style of photography.  I love capturing genuine moments between people, with little direction unfolding naturally between shots.  

I believe a photograph is associated with emotions.  A photograph will be cherished more when a feeling is associated behind the photo. 

 Don't get me wrong I am thankful for the other newborn photos, but doing lifestyle newborn session makes my soul happy! 

Welcome to the world baby Jacob! I look forward to seeing you grow and I hope this is one of many sessions together.
