First 48 {Baby Hudson} Corona Newborn Photographer

Char {Norco Children's Photographer}

Charlie came to do his 1 year pictures (about a year ago) and he was THE best 1 year old model I have ever had!  I'm not kidding either.  He sat on a suitcase and held up a sign.  He smiled when asked.  He didn't move and always looked at the camera.  Seriously.  What 1 year old does that?  Well, Charlie did!

Since then, Charlie welcomed  a new baby brother into his family.  And by welcomed, I mean, completely ignores and doesn't want to be within arms reach of him.  I went to visit his family to do some Newborn, in home, family pictures.  We had tons of fun, getting Charlie to sit anywhere near his brother.  I suppose it takes time.

This summer I was invited back again for Charlie's 2 year old pictures.  Boy is he growing up fast!  Anyway, his mom booked him for my first summer beach mini sessions.  When I got there, he had fallen face first into the sand and could not calm down.  So, the family packed up and left the beach... no pictures.  Since, they have been such wonderful returning clients, I set up a time to stop by their Norco home to grab some pictures of Charlie.... where he's most comfortable, his own back yard.  Now, he was not the same model as he had been the year before, but he was very typically a 2 year old.  He and I had a great time playing with trucks and throwing the ball.  By the end, he and I were the best of friends.  Cant wait to see you again very soon Charlie!

Adam + Chelsea {Fullerton Wedding Photography}

This Orange County couple exchanged their wedding vows at the beautiful Fullerton Summit House Restaurant.  These two are absolutely and completely in love and photographing their wedding was my pleasure.  It is a dream, as a photographer, to see such raw and true emotion pour from your clients.  Adam is a marine, based out of Pendleton, and their time together is limited, so when they first saw each other on their wedding day, they could not keep their eyes, hands, and love from each other.  Adam and Chelsea are not only beautiful on the outside, but through and through.  I cannot thank them enough for their kindness and caring.  Also, thank you to Corey Morgan for assisting me on this beautiful Southern California day.


I have to take a moment here, in the middle of this story line, to show this picture below. At this point in the day, after the ceremony, we do the extended family pictures.  We gather aunts, uncles, grandparents and cousins to get pictures with the bride and groom.  Normally a shot like this is simply a lighting test shot while we shuffle family members around the bride and groom.  I LOVE this picture though because Adam and Chelsea were like this all day.   With all the shuffle and commotion of their guests around them, they would stop and look at each other with pure love and just kiss and snuggle.  They're the cutest!
