We Are Family-Orange County Children's Photographer

I've been wanting to do a slideshow set to this song FOREVER. I was trying to find a family with three or more girls for it, but it just wasn't in the cards. That's ok because it's plenty fabulous enough with my own kids. Mack is the lead singer and Hayden and Camille are singing backup....

Celebrating Josselyn-Newport Beach Event Photographer

Jennifer and David are expecting their third child in a few weeks and they hosted the most beautiful shower to celebrate. The decorations were fabulous as were all the different cupcakes, candies, etc. Ashley O'Keefe planned and designed the shower as well as Giselle's 5th birthday party a few months ago, which was another spectacular event. So impressive!

Isla-Coming Home-Laguna Beach Newborn Photos by Gillian Crane

This is Isla, just one week old. Her family was passing through Laguna on their way home to northern California. She was the most precious little thing ever, I could have squeezed her all day long. I'm really into photographing newborns these days. It's surprising to me, because you have to maintain a sleepy and quiet atmosphere for a successful session, which is so not me. it must be subconsciously therapeutic.

About a third of the photos from the shoot are in the slideshow, to give you an idea of what to expect from a session, scroll down for a few of my favorite photos...

I don't know if something's in the air here in Orange County, but it seems like I've had even more newborn portrait shoots than usual lately. This makes me happy, because I never, ever get tired of taking newborn photographs. These latest ones will make for beautiful birth announcements!
