I just love working with this family.  I got to do their maternity session when they were expecting their first baby and she just turned three. Last week I got to take their maternity photos as they are now expecting their second baby.  We met up at Thomas F. Riley Wilderness Park in Orange County.  It is a beautiful place with majestic live oak trees, a butterfly garden, miles of trails and tall gorgeous grass.  This sweet mama always styles her family so beautifully, it makes my work so easy!

The Morris family has graced my lens often, and I always love photographing them.  Lea always has a vision for her photos and I love making it come to life.  Sweet little MaKenna is almost 9 months old and Brooklyn is turning four. I have been so blessed to photograph both of these sweet girls since birth.  We set up the cutest little tent for them and had a blast playing in the gorgeous hills of Oak Glen.  After nearly a week of rain we were very happy for sunshine on the day of our scheduled session 🙂

I had fun hanging out with the Gonzales family last week at Prospect Park in Redlands.  They welcomed a daughter six weeks ago and their son just turned four.  He is such a sweet big brother and he loves baseball.   These four were so easygoing and fun, and I think that reflects in their photos 🙂

The last time I photographed the Huber family their oldest was only 4 months old.  Fast forward four years and they now have another cute baby boy who is 5 months old, and their oldest is four!  I went to high school with Pam, so it is extra fun to get to photograph her family.  They seem to be juggling the demands of two small boys like champs. The baby was all smiles and such a cutie.  I just wanted to kiss him!  He was such a sweet little guy.  I’ll bet in no time these two brothers will be wrestling and causing havoc all over the place 🙂

The Bovich family welcomed their precious baby girl to the world.  They are so very in love with Reese. I love lifestyle photography because the images are timeless, real and whole-hearted.  I always take this approach with my newborn photography.  I feel like these images provide a snapshot of what life was like at this moment.  These are moments that we remember for the rest of our lives, welcoming that sweet baby to the world and learning how to be parents.  This sweet tiny newborn only stays this small for such a blink of an eye.  I am always honored to be able to freeze these moments for a family to be able to look back upon forever.  Congratulations you guys, she is precious!
