Irvine, Tustin, Costa Mesa Family & Child Portrait Photography | 2-Year-Old & 11-Year-Old Boys

Ben is such an adorable, fun-loving 2-year-old boy who really looks up to his big brother Eric, who’s 11.  This is just a sneak peek of their family’s beautiful portrait session.

South Pasadena, Arcadia, Altadena, San Marino Child & Family Portrait Photos | 2-1/2-Year-Old Toddler & Yellow Lab Puppy

I had so many favorites from this beautiful family portrait session with Evan, who’s two-and-a-half years old, and Bellbird the two-month-old yellow Labrador puppy that I had to post more.

Evan and Bellbird are simply adorable.  Look at Bellbird’s tail over there on the left.

This last image is probably my favorite photo ever.  I’m in love with the quality of the light, Evan’s bright and irresistible laugh, and Bellbird’s serene countenance.

Alhambra, Monterey Park, Arcadia Family & Child Portrait Photography with 2-1/2-Year-Old Toddler & Yellow Lab Puppy

This family was such a delight to photograph.  We spent a beautiful afternoon with them in a Pasadena park.  Evan and Bellbird are probably two of the cutest subjects ever to be on the blog, and with a two-and-a-half-year-old toddler and a two-month-old yellow Labrador puppy in the same portrait session, we were sure kept on our toes.  I love Evan’s beautiful blue eyes and the matching blue shirt and lollipop.  I love Bellbird’s soft, soft fur.  And I love the joy that this family exuded.  If you missed it, check out the Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena child & family portrait photo sneak peek of Evan and his yellow Lab puppy here!

Chi - Fantastic shots! Favorites are: Evan climbing up the twisted wood/roots, Evan hanging off of said twisted wood/root, and Bellbird and Evan eyeing each other.August 11, 2011 – 1:48 pm

Sophia Chang - A baby AND a dog? That is not easy, sister! I surfed over from your Amazon deal and could not stop browsing. Loving your work :) August 11, 2011 – 12:25 pm

Kim - I really love all your photos with Evan. My favorite is the one of him swinging on the arch, and you captured his joy so skillfully. Beautiful work!June 23, 2011 – 2:12 pm

Evan - Very cute photos. You’re so good with light! The tree trunk was a creative spot to pick. It looks like it would have been difficult to get enough light on Evan’s face there, but you made the photos look amazing! Incidentally, I commend Evan’s parents on the excellent name choice.June 16, 2011 – 4:10 pm

Marci - How adorable is he!! I love the lollypop shot, him swinging from the arched tree/vines and this last one with the family altogether.June 15, 2011 – 5:35 am

Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena, & LA Child & Family Portrait Photographer | 2-1/2-Year-Old Toddler & Yellow Lab Puppy

A two-and-a-half-year-old toddler and a two-month-old yellow Labrador puppy.  Can you get anything cuter than that?  Evan is such an adorable, active little boy, and Bellbird the yellow Lab is such a playful, lovable puppy.  We had so much fun running around with them in a beautiful Pasadena park.  This is just a sneak peek of the many gorgeous photos from their family portrait session.  More to come in a few weeks!

Chi - I want to scoop this puppy up! This is a perfect scene, and I love the shadows playing across boy and pup.June 3, 2011 – 1:05 pm

Marci - Oh, how precious!!! Evan must have played hard with the puppy, looks like Bellbird is taking a quick rest. (grin) The little crocs on Evan’s feet are so cute too. I didn’t realize they made them in that size!June 3, 2011 – 6:25 am

Kim - Look at how happy Evan looks! Probably the cutest two subjects you’ve ever posted, and I love how beautiful the light is in the photo.May 19, 2011 – 12:50 pm

Peggy - Can’t decide which is cuter – Evan or Bellbird. He looks so happy and the puppy absolutely indifferent. Wonder which was harder to capture??

The blurred background makes you focus on the boy but then the eye is drawn down to the dog and the sticks, typical boy necessities. Love the composition.

This photo is sure to be a family treasure.May 19, 2011 – 11:49 am

Long Beach, Torrance, Pasadena Children’s Portrait Photography | 4th Birthday Party & Kids’ Magic Show

It’s always a treat for me to post about the adorable Audrey and Phillip, and Audrey’s 4th birthday party is no exception.  I can’t believe she’s already 4 years old!  You’ll see from these photos that the kids had tons of fun at this birthday party.  Here’s the birthday girl looking happy and so cute.  She’d picked out the delicious strawberry ice cream cake herself.

They all looked so festive in their party hats.

Here the kids are eagerly awaiting their balloon animals.  I love their excited expressions.  Actually, most of the boys wanted their balloons made into swords, and most of the girls wanted them made into flowers.

Birthday parties weren’t this much fun when I was a kid!  The kids absolutely loved the children’s magic show, and Audrey had a great time being the magician’s assistant.

The reaction from the kids in the audience was just adorable.  If you notice the two little girls in the back, they’ve laughed so hard they’ve fallen over.

Chi - P.S. The girls who have fallen over are hilarious. Wish I’d been there!June 3, 2011 – 1:04 pm

Chi - These kids are adorable. I can’t believe we’ve already seen them celebrate so many birthdays through your eyes. Lucky you, getting to hang out with them on such a fun occasion.April 25, 2011 – 7:08 pm

Kim - I love seeing how happy the kids are! Audrey and Phillip are growing so fast!April 25, 2011 – 2:50 pm

Evan - Hilarious photos! I had such a great time there that I may as well be 4 years old.April 21, 2011 – 8:58 am

A Hawaiian Luau Birthday Party | Pasadena, San Marino, Glendale Child Portrait Photographer

Where the heck did autumn go?  I can’t believe it’s somehow already past the middle of November.  I could have sworn Thanksgiving wasn’t for another two weeks, and yet here it is coming up next week.

What better theme for a 7-year-old girl’s birthday party than a Hawaiian luau?  Add a bunch of leis, a hula-dancing girl cake made of cupcakes, tiki lights, tropical fruits, and a big group of laughing, chattering girls, and you’ve got the makings for a fantastic Hawaiian-themed birthday party in Pasadena / Altadena.  These girls had endless energy and were so cute and fun to photograph.

Long Beach, Pomona, & Torrance Children’s Portrait Photography | A 5-Year-Old’s Huntington Beach Birthday Party

If you remember the ever-adorable Phillip and Audrey, then you’ll recognize this birthday boy.  Phillip is now 5 years old!  Kids just grow up so fast.  I still remember when he was only 6 months old.  We last saw Phillip and Audrey at Audrey’s birthday party a few months back.  This time it was Phillip’s turn, and we had a blast at his Huntington Beach birthday party full of kids and fun.  Who doesn’t like a great day at the beach with sun, sandcastles, and hot dogs?

We first have the birthday boy being a silly ham for the camera.

Next is Audrey looking as cute as usual.  Don’t you love how decked out they are for the beach?

The day started out with a light fog, which was perfect for photographs.

Here they are building sandcastles.

Then the kids decided to build a hole.  Just a hole that they could fill with water (actually, that the dads could fill with water for them) and stand in.  Endless entertainment.

Evan - What a nice post to remember the summer! Your photos make me feel like I’m at the beach. And the kids are so cute. I admit that it still sounds like fun to dig a hole in the sand and fill it with water.October 7, 2010 – 10:24 am

april - So cute! I love how happy they are and the concentration when they’re working in the sand.

Totally unrelated, but I love that purple hibiscus beach bag, too.October 7, 2010 – 6:39 am
