Leah and Danielle - family and baby portraiture by Orange County photographer Gillian Crane

Don't you want to eat these babies up? This is Danielle and Leah, who just turned one. They loved the sand, they both probably ate a cup of it each, such a hoot! Aren't their ensembles fabulous? I love salmon and orange for beach photos....

a born natural - Orange County child photography by Gillian Crane

I met this adorable little girl and her family a few years ago through the Laguna Beach Parents' Club and I've been taking her photo every year since. She's always been amazingly natural in front of the camera, just a total joy.

new headshots for lisi - laguna beach headshot photographer

This hot mama/author has a new book series coming out and she was going to tell me all about it at our photo shoot...but i realized later that it never came up! funny b/c we talked nonstop the whole time - several subjects going at once - 100 miles an hour! so fun! what does that tell you about this woman?! The most unassuming, down to earth famous person you'll ever meet. I'll ever meet. and isn't her skin just "dewey"?! it's not fair. she chose the 4th photo for the author photo, but i loved this concrete wall and wanted to put some graffiti-like text against it.

check out the fabulous background in these photos! it's crystal cove beach in laguna beach, it was a cloudy day, i lucked out. we were going to start off our shoot w/ a mojito at the beachcomber http://www.thebeachcombercafe.com/_crystalcove/index.aspx , but life got in the way and there was no time.

lisi hates having her picture taken, would you ever have guessed?
