Orange county family photography shoot on the beach

Its that glorious time of the year when we don’t have to rush the kid’s to school and time seems to go a little slower. Some of my best memories are playing in the ocean with my family, making sand castles and just watching other people in their moments of joy. I love shooting family por […]

You take that photo with your smart phone?!

You are right. No. We did not take this photo with your smart phone. Our work is always captured on professional cameras with state of the art lenses…and then there is the lighting factor (which is Lori’s special gift to be sure!).
