Sometimes you meet a family and you instantly feel like a good friend. They are so warm and loving, they just welcome you right in. Well, this family was just like that. I had the honor of photographing the whole DeSa Family...mom, dad, kids, spouses, grandkids...in San Juan Capistrano. Rosemary told me the last thing she wanted was fake family portraits. She really wanted organic and natural portraiture, rather than posed. They made creating that easy because they were so natural together as a family. Smiles came easily and love just oozed out...hugs, holding hands. They were all just happy to be together. Honestly, I smiled nearly the whole time working on their gallery. Here are a few of my favorites from our time together!

It was a picture perfect fall day at Salt Creek park over looking the ocean. This beautiful family showed up ready to have some fun. Their connection and love was a joy to capture. They laughed, hugged, wrestled and played and the result was amazing. Thank you for spending a little time with me and allowing me to capture who you are as a family!
I love watching children explore the natural world. As a preschool teacher, I used to sit back and just watch the wonder unfold. They pick flowers, walk barefoot in tall lush grass and connect with the magic from time close to Mother Earth.
So when I was thinking of a place to have a family shoot, Casper's Wilderness park was at the top of my list. Casper's is a great location for young families with babies and preschoolers needing a late morning session that works around nap times. Also, spring is blooming everywhere in this Orange County park. Lucky me that one of my favorite families came out to play with me. We brought bubbles, a tent (made by this beautiful mom) and books to read. We had a great time and what resulted were magical memories!
We only get a lush California spring for a short time. Don't miss it! Call me to schedule your magical, child-centered session. Click here to send me a message.

Well, this sweet little family signals the end of baby week. I'm all caught up with the baby photos I had sitting on my hard-drive waiting to see the light of day.
This is Allie and her two sweet little girls. They joined me and the rest of the Life in Loud Retreat attendees for a little family lifestyle session in Destin, Florida. What a joy to work with all three of these beauties!
