full hands : full heart - Canyon Lake family photographer

This sweet family has many little ones and seriously their hearts were so in tune to the needs of their children. It was special to watch.

I was privileged to go spend a weekend family morning capturing these in their own home. Getting a feel for what its like surrounded by so many little hands.

And oh me oh man these are some cute kids.

A Wayfarers Baptism and one Smiley baby

One of my favorite things is when some of my regular clients invite me into the sacred places of their lives. Births, Baptisms, Weddings. Its awesome to go to these and feel like not only their photographer but a friend. This family is officially my most photographed family over the last 10 years. And its been an honor to watch them grow.
Here we are at the stunning wayfarers chapel in Palos Verdes. For a special baptism. And here was seriously the most smiley baby I have ever seen. Its official as I edited through he loves me, in case you were wondering and from the looks of it everyone adores him!

family of four : The Heddons { irvine, ca newborn photography }

this family is one of my most frequent families to shoot
and I love it
I love what a priority they have put on memory keeping
and I love how authentic they keep it
and guess what they welcomed baby #2

I secretly hope they have 10 more so I can do this again and again
because they make family life look lovely
and I just like being with them all.
Corey is a super attentive dad and husband
and Melissa is so tuned in to her kids. Her heart is big.

I get a little teary editing these because I know
these sweet first days of tending to two hearts and bodies.
The honor it is.
 As you can see big brother is feeling pretty proud
unless brother cries and then he is oh so concerned
and as a mama to two close in ages little ones, I love this and remember it well.

This family is filled with love. no lie.
It is my privilege again to get them behind my lens.
I have loved seeing them grow over the years as Jesus has done what only HE can do.
Its powerful.
Thank you Richards family.
