I love babies – especially newborn ones! I mean really, who doesn’t love the sweetness of a new baby? Of course I just had to jump at the chance for a lifestyle newborn shoot of precious baby Madison. I got to peek in on the new lives of this beautiful family of three. This is what I love most about lifestyle shoots! It’s all so natural, in an environment that everyone is comfortable in. I get the chance to capture the real and raw moments of (new) parenthood. You both are already amazing parents, and I’m excited to see your journey as your family grows. Thanks for letting me be apart of this time in your lives!

Did anyone else know about the most amazing park in Orange County?! I can’t believe I hadn’t been to Irvine Regional Park up until this engagement session with Susie and Darrell. It seriously was so beautiful! I almost felt like I had escaped back East for a moment…I loved it! Both Susie and Darrell looked amazing, so incredibly photogenic. These pictures make me so excited for their wedding at the end of this year. I can just imagine the gorgeous photos I’ll be able to capture – I’m already so excited! Here are (more than a) couple of my favorites from their engagement session. It was too hard to choose!;)

A wedding at The Villa in San Juan Capistrano? Sign me up! The Villa always brings a classy and chic wedding to Orange County, and I’m always excited when I get to shoot a wedding there. Not to mention, Alison and Sean are such a beautiful couple, it was a pleasure to capture their wedding day! I was just dying over her wedding dress – doesn’t she look stunning?! And oh my goodness that beautiful bouquet by Lynne Lucent Floral Designs…there are no words. Lynne’s flowers were elegantly displayed throughout the venue with such detail. It truly complemented the whole place!

I must give a special thank you to the Sweet and Saucy Shop for their delicious mini cupcakes and the beautiful wedding cake. It added a special sweetness to the day;)

Alison and Sean, I wish you a lifetime of happiness as you journey into marriage together. You guys are incredible and I had a blast with you all! Thank you for letting me be apart of your special day – Congratulations!

Miles is here! I’ve been so fortunate to be able to capture so many milestones in the Stift family, and this was definitely one of my favorites. I mean, how can you not love this little tiny newborn baby?! Ah – he’s just so precious and snuggly:)So many great moments were had during this newborn session. I loved getting to witness all of the love that this little baby brought into their family of four! It was hard to choose which pictures to post (because baby Miles is so adorable!) – but I did my best;)Enjoy!
