Baby Liam – 6 Months

Isn’t it amazing how fast babies change?  In 6 months a baby goes from a tiny, helpless creature to a chunky baby who can sit, smile, laugh, clap, and scoot.

My very good friend, Jamie, asked me to take Liam’s 6 month pictures.  I was more than happy to capture his chunkiness with my camera.

Happy Friday!

Christine and Fernando

It’s always a little scary when you book a client over the phone and have never met them. It’s also extremely embarrassing when you go to meet them for their engagement shoot and sit five feet away from for ten minutes before you realize that they are your clients! They thought I was Asian (they attended a wedding I shot, but thought I was my second shooter) and I thought Christine was brunette (I had no factual reason to believe she was brunette, just thought she was!). I thought they would see me with my cameras, but it turns out they didn’t. I’m glad I went up and asked them :)

Christine and Fernando met after Fernando’s sister introduced them. Christine was the teacher of Fernando’s niece and they met at her birthday party. Christine fell for Fernando right away, but Fernando is a bit shy. It took Christine finally asking him out for them to go on their first date :) And now they are getting married!

This lucky couple is having two weddings! Their first wedding is a small, intimate destination wedding being held in August at the Ritz Carlton in Laguna Niguel. Christine lived in California for a few years and loves it here and considers herself a California girl at heart (she still hasn’t changed her 714 area code!). Their second wedding is being held in New Jersey a couples of weeks later.

I’m super excited to be apart of their wedding! It’s going to be a lovely day with lots of time to take pictures :) For now, here’s the slideshow!

Tracy’s Day With Drew

A few weeks ago I spent the day with new Orange County photography Tracy Laulhere (website coming soon!).  She’s a Stanford educated mom of 2 who’s decided to turn her love of photography into a business.  It’s a good thing I didn’t know she was a Stanford grad until we had already started our session because I would have been intimidated!  Tracy has done her research in photography.  She’s bought all the right equipment.  Gone to seminars with the best photographers in Orange County.  And has perfected her logo and is working on perfecting her website and blog.  She’s getting everything lined up perfectly before starting her business.

But, my question to her was, is it ever going to be perfect?  My advice to Tracy was to listen to her heart and dive in.  Let her emotions drive her instead of her brain and see where it takes you.  A lot of photography is emotional.  The way you connect with your clients.  The way you depict the love you see through your lens.  You can’t (or at least I can’t) rationalize everything that I do with photography.  Sometimes you have to just go with it and let your heart lead the way.

I am very excited to see Tracy’s website and blog!  I know she will put out nothing but an amazing product!

The awesome Enoch family modeled for us.  I love how bright and colorful their outfits were!  They totally matched their outgoing and fun personalities.  Had so much fun with this family!
