It's Hailing Here | Orange County Photographer

March 8, 2013

So, we don’t normally get snow in Orange County, but we do ocassionally get hail!!!  This was my excitement for the day! lol.  I don’t think I’ve ever seen so much hail in my backyard before! I ran outside all giddy just like a child! I wished my kids were home to enjoy it with me. The hail was shaped like little tiny jewels all cold and sparkling. So pretty. After dropping of my kids at school it was pretty clear and the sun was even out…didn’t think there was going to be rain so this was so unexpected!

Working with Getty Images | Commercial Photography Orange County

February 22, 2013

Recently, I was contacted by Getty Images (a top tier stock house) regarding usage of a few of my images.  They were interested in having me submit them for commercial usage. Isn’t that exciting?  I was honored and decided to move forward and contacted my clients that were in the photos they were interested in. All of which have agreed to sign a commercial model release for me. I was so thrilled!  Thank you to all of my wonderful clients! I wanted to share the images that they are interested in….

Beautiful Newborn Bath | OC Newborn Photography

February 4, 2013

One of my Facebook friends shared this video and I wanted to share it with all you new moms to be! It is so incredible. Peaceful. Serene.  I had no idea a video of a newborn being bathed could be so peaceful. So serene. Absolutely beautiful in all it’s simplicity. I wish I could have done this with my kiddos when they were babies. Truly, babies are miracles.

Booked For 2012!

October 29, 2012

Hi Everyone!

Can you believe we are already towards the end of the year?  Well we are and this is my busy season.  I am booked for the year of 2012 and l will only be taking on newborn and maternity clients in 2013.  Please keep in mind that newborns are best photographed at 5-8 days old, 2 weeks maximum. Book your newborn session before your baby arrives as this will ensure that you are on my books. Maternity sessions are best done while you are 32-36 weeks along.

Thank you and enjoy the holidays!

This Image Evoked So Many Emotions For Me | Orange County Child Photographer

November 26, 2011

We recently returned from a wonderful vacation on the island of Kauai. One of my favorite places in the entire world.  I spent most of my summers there while growing up and both my parents were born and raised on the island of Kauai.  When my mom passed away several years ago we sprinkled her ashes there as this was her wish.  The island is such a spiritual place for me.  One early morning I took my kids to one of the beautiful beaches there and my daughter was just playing and walking on the beach.  I took this capture and it has such an ethereal feel to it. I felt my sweet mom was watching over my darling daughter.  They never had the chance to meet each other but I know my children would have adored her as much I did.  My mom always wanted grandchildren and she pretty much gave up the idea as none of my sisters or I had children before she passed.   I know she sees them everyday and is always with us in a higher sense. This image is a reminder to me of that. Thank you mom for being who you are….

    Stunning!! Such an amazing image!

    This image makes me cry. In a good way. I’m so saddened for your loss, and fear the day I have to sprinkle my mom’s ashes. But, I’m happy for you too. Happy that she watches over you. Happy that your love for her is being passed down to your own children. I love that Kauai provides you so much peace and spirituality to you. This image is gorgeous. And so are you.

I Won 1st Place! | Orange County Child Photographers

October 22, 2011

OMG!! So to my surprise I woke up and saw a pingback to iheartfaces.com and thought something was up. Well I had no idea I’d win 1st place! I’m so thrilled and excited! Thank you so much!!!

Special thanks to this week’s Guest Photographer Judge, Femi Corazon!
“There is a very delicate, sweet and soft quality to this portrait. It has a very painterly feel. I love the wisps of hair blowing around her face, her lovely expression and her body language expressed through her hands. This beautiful image makes me feel like I know this little girl. A perfect capture and beautiful post-processing.”
