Ah – this sweet Laguna Niguel family session was a JOY to photograph! Honest, what’s better than hanging out with lovely people, and getting to document their love for each other? Not much!
This family has a special place in my heart because April and I go WAY back. We met years ago while working out together at Crossfit Irvine and I instantly knew she was going to be one of my favorite people! That still rings true today!
April has a contagious energy and I often thought of her as the glue that held our friend group together in Irvine. Wherever April was, everyone wanted to be! This Laguna Niguel family session was such a treat because I got to spend a few uninterrupted hours with April and her sweet family while they were in town visiting. My heart was so full at the end of the session – it felt like bursting! This family is thriving and so so SO happy!

The typically blazing SoCal sun was hidden behind clouds and some dense fog for this shoot – but it made for a pretty backdrop of lush, vibrant landscaping. The finished photos are stunning – and April’s baby girl is literally so cute I could cry! That denim romper and polka-dotted headband?! SWOON!
These new(ish) parents are so in love with their baby girl – I basically had to do little to no creative direction. They just had to look at her and their smiles, so wide and bright, were straight beaming across both of their faces! Being a new parent opens up boundless joy and happiness (which is why I encourage you all to document this time in your life with professional photos!).
Thank you, April – for making time to meet up with me, for sharing your happiness and your family — and most of all – for being such a wonderful friend!
