Gorgeous Family. Gorgeous Photos.

Gorgeous Family Photos Huntington Beach (10) Gorgeous Family Photos Huntington Beach (4) Gorgeous Family Photos Huntington Beach (15)I really hope she doesn’t get mad at me for saying this. But I’m just being honest. Because I KNOW she’s not the only one that’s felt this way. Harmony was VERY nervous for our pictures. In the past, we’d talked about pictures of her. She said she always has this overly giant smile in pictures because she gets nervous.

Look, these kind of concerns, they don’t scare me. They make me excited to show people with these thoughts, what you get when you work with me. Which is STUNNING PICTURES.

Ryan, Harmony, and their family arrived an hour before our session. They had a sweet picnic. And some beers. Which I actually completely suggest to take an edge off. It worked. Not even one overly smiling-smiles showed up in our pictures. Only love. Happiness. And a family that flows together in the loveliest way.

I’m so stoked we made this day happen. I know she’s wanted it for a long time, and this is absolutely one of my favorite sessions to date. They generate warmth and love. May these gorgeous pictures make¬†her remember those feelings forever.

Family Belongs Together. In Pictures.

Extended Family Photos Orange County (10) Extended Family Photos Orange County (3) Extended Family Photos Orange County They took the time to make pictures of them ALL, happen. This makes me soooooo happy! It makes all of these wonderful people sooooo happy. One big family, lots of pretty faces, lots of happy smiles. Molly and Colby brought their parents, their babies, their significant others, and their in-laws out on a beautiful Huntington Beach afternoon. This may be the only time it happens, who knows? But I’m so happy they did this.

Bring your family together just once (outside of a wedding). And this beauty will happen. And you will smile about it forever!

Bowties, Fedoras & Two Cute Teeth

Best Family Photos Orange County (12) Best Family Photos Orange County (6) Erin & Michael’s son turned one. He has the best bow tie, rocks a fedora better than a hipster, and has only two bottom teeth that make his little smile shine more than it already does. We had a really fun afternoon together, celebrating this family and their little guy’s first year of life. Family photos and a cake smash. Perfect.

Look, we see so many great smiles in these pictures. Adults are easy to get to smile, but kids, not always. However, when you have as many harmonized songs as Erin & Michael do, smiles are easy. I felt like I was in a fun movie with them, listening to their happy songs and clapping. The things parents do to get smiles from their kids ALWAYS end up making me laugh out loud too.

And these moments together inevitably create the most beautiful and happiest of moments caught on film. Digital film I mean. Obviously. :) Enjoy these sweet pictures, I hope the love this family has for each other makes you smile too!
