Rustic Christmas- Sometimes You Have to Mix it Up!

We all love beach Christmas photos. Who doesn't love to send out photos of you and your family having fun on the beach, in the sand? Especially to those relatives who live where it snows! We live in Southern California, we have to brag a little. But sometimes it's fun to mix it up. Living in Southern California, we have so many different backdrops to choose from- especially here in South Orange County! This year I did a lot of Christmas card photos at rustic locations. I love the way they turned out! And best of all, so did my clients.
This adorable family is a busy one! Mom is the owner of She Bloom Clothing- the one I take the catalog photos for and all three of her adorable kids are super active. Glad we were able to pin down a date!

Lucas~ Beach Photos

Another one of the kids I have seen grow up! This guy has come to see me for over 5 years as well. We've done his photos at the park, at the park with his dog, in his back yard and at the beach. But one thing remains the same- he is a whole lot of fun. He's never crazy to see me (Mom makes him get his photos done. There aren't too many boys over the age of 5 who are excited to see me at first!), but we always have fun. Such a goof ball!

Christmas Mini Sessions- the Helgeson Boys

This years Christmas Mini Sessions were a hit. Both days booked up quickly with both old faces and new ones.
Our first sessions took place on the beach in Dana Point. These two boys have been coming to see me every year for the past 5 years! Its been great watching them grow and change. Mom and Dad get thrown into the mix every few years too, but this was a boys only year.

Calvin- One Year Cake Smash

This adorable little guy turned one last week! The best part about the fact that we did his photos a week after his birthday was that he already knew about cake from his party- which means, he was one of my first little ones to NOT CRY! He was actually excited to see his cake. We did a few photos in his back yard, then did some indoor photos and got cracking on that cake smash.

Baby on the Way~ Maternity Session

I'm super excited for these two! I've know Jenny since she was in high school and babysat our girls! Now these two are going to have to hire their own babysitter. Their little one is expect to make his debut around February 6th, so keep an eye out for his newborn photos.
I offer two types of Maternity Sessions, Mini Sessions, which take place at one location or Full Sessions, which, like this one, take place at multiple locations- here were did a rustic location and the beach in Dana Point.
