Torrance Newborn Photos Torrance Newborn Photos (15)Would ya look at this beautiful newborn??! Jason & Kacie welcomed their first little lady, Camille. A name that I think is gorgeous just like her little face! And her hair, HER HAIR! Ohmygoodness it’s the best when babies are born with this perfect full head of hair!

So one peaceful morning, we made their house calm and quiet so she could sleep. And I snapped lots of stunning newborn pictures! It made me so happy to see her parents touched so much by these pictures. Newborns are only this teeny tiny once, so kudos to all your new parents that make sure you have pictures of them! They will make you smile for a lifetime!

Parents + Their Grown Kids = Good Stuff!

Central Park Huntington Beach Central Park Huntington Beach (10) Central Park Huntington Beach (6) Central Park Huntington Beach (13)It’s a common mishap, not updating the family photos. The last pictures of you on the walls, are with pony tails and braces. Not. Cute. Now, I don’t know that this is the case for Dave and Patsi. Patsi is actually pretty good about updating her pictures of the kids & grandkids. But pictures including her and Dave, I don’t know. None the less, outside of weddings, they haven’t all been together recently to document their clan.

So the kids made it happen as a gift to these sweet parents. We had some fun, some serious, and some kind of embarrassing pictures (see said pyramid). But the thing about being an adult, is you can get away with a lot more embarrassing stuff then you could when you were a kid. Well, maybe you just don’t get so embarassed as an adult.

And before we get to the goods, I have to share an email I received from Patsi after our session. “Jen, Sunday was such fun – you do such a great job creating fun. Dave commented on how skilled you are at making people comfortable. I love the pyramid. It is somewhat of a symbol of the relationship of my children and their lovers – they support one another. So, this is to say thank you and to commend you on your great work. I will definitely share YOU with my friends.”

Which brings us to the pictures. Pretty. Funny. All around beautiful! I’m so happy they did these. Patsi is the absolute sweetest gal with such a kind of giving heart. I know nothing makes her happier than these kids of hers, their babies, and the love they have as a family!

And if it’s your turn to create some gorgeous images of your clan, don’t put it off any longer. Those grandbabies are only this age once! Contact me, and I’ll help!

Orange Love {And A Wedding}

Orange County Intimate Wedding Photographer (2) Orange County Intimate Wedding Photographer (6) Orange County Intimate Wedding PhotographerCindy and Grant filled the timeless Orange Hill Restaurant with so much love and joy on this particular Saturday morning. After spending many years as a solid couple, they made it official, forever.

They invited their close friends and family for an intimate wedding in Orange. They asked their three children to stand at the altar with them. They invited some sweet people to read words of wisdom, and lift up their marriage during a heartfelt ceremony. It was perfect and simple. Exactly what this couple wanted.

And I was there to make sure they’ll remember it forever, in the form of beautiful pictures. And I’m thankful they trusted me when I told them to meet me in a local neighborhood, on the horse trail. Because that’s where we spent a few moments together, just them two, creating these stunning portraits that will make them remember all of their feelings on this day, forever.

Cheers to a kind and adventurous couple. May they live their lives filled with the joy and adoration I saw them share on their wedding day!

Twinsies At Six Months!

Huntington Beach Twin Photos (1) Huntington Beach Twin Photos (8)These twins!! THESE TWINS!! Six months now. They were the kind that were really beautiful when they were born (if you don’t remember, see them in their toles as cutest newborn twins, right here), and have continued on that path. Obvi.

What is the most awesome about this family, is how easy they make it look. I don’t know how many of you have twins, but I can’t imagine it would be easy in the slightest way. But Kim & Dave get a good amount of sleep, they are always out and about, and they adore these two twinsies. They’ve found their flow in these last six months, and it shows with these two happy babies!

Here these two are at six months. I can’t wait to see this bond grow along with them!
