Maddie and Chloe - newborn portraits by Orange County photographer Gillian Crane

Maddie's new little sister Chloe, who was about 6 weeks old when we shot these photos. She was so chill, and her sister is such the cover girl, aren't her eyes amazing! Their mom Cari had that fabulous headboard made, I'm dying to have one, it's so great in photos! In my perfect world, every wall/piece of furniture in my house (and the yard), would be something that makes a great photo backdrop.

Mother's Day Surprise - special occasion photography by Gillian Crane

I offered a Mother's Day special this year, and these boys' father took advantage of it in order to give his wife a Mother's Day Surprise she'd never forget!



It was a lot of fun taking photos of these boys! They were amazingly fun and sweet. But I think the best part of the experience was creating a DVD slideshow of our favorite photos from the shoot. Definitely the cherry on top, and something I hope to do a lot more of in the future. You can watch the slideshow down below, or check out my new YouTube page. They chose one of the boys' favorite songs to go with the slideshow, something fun and a little bit crazy to capture their youthful energy.
