Family Photography in San Clemente Orange County

This family is so great!  They have been with me since their littlest was a newborn!  Check out her newborn pictures from 2015 here.  My Orange County family photography is a little bit different then my in studio newborn photography.  I do loved my posed shots, but what I treasure the most is the family interaction.  I loved getting those real photos that truly shows the love between the family.  This does tend to yield a lot more pictures, but they make great albums!  I know how much my own children love flipping through all the albums we have from years past.

I love doing family photo sessions.  Since having my last baby in 2016 it makes me realize just how quickly they grow and how important it is to have your family photographed.  Just seeing how much my own children love looking at pictures of all of us together makes the stress of the family photo session all worth it!

Orange County newborn photographer | Ryan and his brothers

This family was so amazing!  They just had their third adorable baby boy and came to me for his first newborn photo session with his brothers in tow.  Luckily for them my studio has a room where they can sit back watch movies from my selection of 130+ family friendly movies or color in any of the dozen coloring books at the studio.  This little newborn boy was such a pleasure to photograph.  He was so calm and happy I could have just kept going if I didn’t need to pick up my own kids from school.  Lucky for me though I get to see him again for his milestone session.

Ryan did start his session wide awake, but as long as their calm I don’t mind that at all!  I love me some awake newborn images!  Once I get them all nice and wrapped they tend to doze off pretty quickly.

How sweet does he look in this navy color!  I’m just loving dark colors with boys lately!  It really brings they eye straight to the most important part of the picture, the baby!

Now these are some handsome boys!  They were so well behaved at the studio and were amazing with their newest baby brother.

Elephant Themed Newborn Photography

This is baby boy Weston. He was born a bit earlier then his mom expected so he came to visit me at my Orange County newborn studio when he was about 6 weeks new! He was such a great sleeper and we were able to get so many adorable set ups and poses with him. I always ask parents about the nursery decor as well as their home decor and wood tones so that I can style the session so the wall art they decide to invest in will match perfectly in their home.

When parents bring in props of their own it always gets my creative juices flowing.  They brought in this large stuffy elephant and I just loved how I incorporated it into the newborn session with Weston.  He’ll come back for his sitter session in about 7 months and I can’t wait to see how he has grown next to his elephant.

This elephant basket that the parents brought in was purchased at Pottery Barn Kids.  Even though they don’t have this one available anymore there are so many other adorable elephant shaped baskets online right now!

Newborn Photography Orange County California | River

This little guy came to my newborn studio with some of the best baby hair I’ve seen!  When a little boy or even a little girl comes into their portrait session with this great of hair, it is so hard to cover up with cute knitted hats!  We decided to do a more natural tones with white and grays for his newborn photo session.  I love how the images turned out!
