It really does feel like yesterday that I was shooting the oldest girls newborn pictures. And now she can sing every single word to any song in the sound of music, and has two younger siblings that are just as fun as her. Love watching this family grow!

Explore California: an Adventure in Wildflower Hunting

It turns out my most favorite thing to do is explore. If I were born 200 years ago, I would be tempted to join the forces in exploring the country. Waterfalls, tall trees, beaches, mountains all to be discovered and labeled. That is the life I would see myself living. Sometimes, I can convince a family or two to join me on one of these explorations, I call them Explore your Backyard. (Just named that as I was typing!) So many pirate caves, secret coves, wildflower patches and parks to explore here in Southern California. If you are looking for an adventure for your family, and want me to join along and document that expedition of sorts, email me!!!

Here is a wildflower hunt. Kellen and I stumbled across a wildflower patch of poppies, and when this family called and mentioned that their favorite thing to do was hunt for wildflowers, I knew we just had to visit our hidden gem. There was a small walk to get there, but what troopers these two girls were. It was seriously the BEST little “Explore your Backyard” adventure of the year.

Soon I will be posting two more sessions I had with Explore your Backyard. daddy daughters daddy daughter wilderness children laughing wildflower hunting wildflower hunting california spin daughter father sisters picnic picking flowers nature walk california family mom daughters mom daughter happy girl happy family flowergirl flower wreath girl father daughter family picnic Family adventure

Peace Love and a Wildflower Baby

Spring is here, and it is time to start thinking of new places to explore. I have been itching to go up to antelope valley and visit the poppy fields. But until I can find that kind of time, I am lucky there are a few mustard fields around to use as a backdrop to cute babies eating their fingers and giggling. This sweet blanket was momma’s blanket too, so precious to have around another generation.

Little Free Birds

little free birds orange county children's commercial photographer spring 2014 kids fashion kids spring fasion 2014 commercial photography orance county californiaA beautiful day, a couple of gorgeous kiddos, some bubbles, a kite, and the cutest clothes from Little Free Birds in Laguna Beach. Just a fun MINI MINI shoot for spring that we worked on. If you are looking for clothes for your photo shoot, the store specializes in organic, eclectic and earth-friendly apparel for children. I highly recommend you stop by and check out the highly fashionable looks for kids. Ask Jessica to style all your kids for your shoot, as the sizes go from baby to 10 and you can get a coordinating look that matches any setting. One last thing to worry about once you schedule your shoot.

Family of Butterflies


You really shouldn’t bring a whole other family to a photo shoot and expect them to just jump in and take pictures, unless of course they are a family of butterflies. This session filled my creative bucket up. To the brim. But watching the love ooze out of each and every one in this family was even more fulfilling to me. Thank you Jill for one of the most amazing sessions ever!
