Through the Years:  Capturing a Journey with one of my Favorite Families

Through the Years: Capturing a Journey with one of my Favorite Families

Through the years, I have been documenting this family since the father was actually a little boy! Now to see him as a dad with his own family is very special.

One of my favorite things about being a photographer is capturing someone’s life story. From the beginning of the romance to falling in love and starting a family.

From the intimate boudoir portraits as a gift to him on their wedding day to her breathtaking and beautiful Maternity session

Behind-The-Session: Capturing a Family Journey Through the Years with one of my favorite families with Brystan Studios

Of course, we had to do some newborn portraits when their sweet baby girl arrived, staying with the same warm and welcoming theme and energy this family brings.

I have continued to document their family’s love every year, creating beautiful albums and wall portraits for them to enjoy throughout the rest of their lives.

The sessions were done at their family’s homes which needless to say, were simply amazing.

I feel blessed for each and every one of the families that I’ve gotten to know and worked with. Thank you for letting me capture the beauty of your life.

Love, Lori

Want me to capture your own family memories?

When was the last time your family had some beautiful professional photos taken? iPhone pictures are great but they’re no replacement for a beautiful wall portrait hanging in your living room or hallway that you get to walk past every single day. As a parent, I’m guessing you’re usually stuck behind the camera, but you deserve to be a part of these beautiful memories with your kids and loved ones.

The exciting day is just around the corner, your gorgeous maternity curves are blossoming, and the excitement is building as you are absolutely ready to welcome new life!

It’s time to capture this beautiful moment in photos!

We have compiled a list of helpful insider tips to ensure you make the most of your baby bump photos and create a family heirloom that you will treasure forever!

When is the best time to take a photo of my baby bump?

We think the best time to show off your baby bump is just about two months before your baby is due. Women develop a great shape that is so beautiful to photograph just between 6 to 10 weeks before the due date.

How should I plan my photo shoot?

Consider some of the gorgeous Orange County maternity photography here in our gallery. Our gallery may inspire you with some ideas about the image and attitude you would like to portray in your photos too. Understand that Lori Brystan has a very special and unique gift of photographic composition that will bring out the most beautiful qualities in you and highlight your maternity in the most individualized and special way.

Angel Baby

Angel Baby

How does Lori keep her photography fresh after doing it for over 25 years? Because each shoot is so unique. This excited mom actually called Lori from the hospital after giving birth to her new baby girl. She saw Lori’s newborn portraits inside of the OCWMG and knew that Lori would create a beautiful shoot for her new bundle of joy.

After doing a phone consultation with Lori, the two of them came up with this sweet, angelic shoot. Lori actually went out and bought teenie tiny angel wings just for this shoot. The result was just so beautiful. Look at the way the sunlight floods into the studio and shines so beautifully on baby.

You know that I’ve talked several times about our beautiful keepsake albums and wall portraits. This is one of those shoots that demands both of those. Wall portraits in baby’s room are a must for this family. There were so many photos to choose from that choosing just a couple for wall portraits will be impossible. That’s why a keepsake album would be perfect.

How adorable is big brother by the way? So dang cute! I think when the family sees this beautiful, unique photos of their newborn, they’re going to have to do a cool shoot with big brother. Hmmm….I wonder what kind of fun , cool things he’s into? I can only imagine what Lori could come up with. Too fun!

If you have a special eveng coming up that you want to capture through Lori’s photography, call us. Lori will come up with something magical for each client. If you can dream it, she can create it


How to prepare for a photo shoot

How to prepare for a photo shoot

How do I prepare for a photo shoot? I get this question daily. Here’s what I tell our clients. The most important thing is to keep it simple, relax and have fun. This applies to everyone for any type of shoot.

How do I prepare for a boudoir shoot? Do I bring my own wardrobe? Do I do my own hair & make-up? Do I spray tan? Can I bring a friend for support? All of these are great questions. You’ll want to bring a beautiful black bra & panties with you and thigh high’s if you want to wear them. If you’re doing a bridal or a softer look, bring a beautiful white (or light colored) bra and panties and thigh highs. Feel free to bring a sexy bustier for your shoot. Over the years, we’ve invested in several beautiful items that you are  welcome to use. We’ve got beautiful wraps, jewelry, hats, gloves and gorgeous feather boas.

We have a large wardrobe, hair and make-up room. You can upgrade your shoot to include hair & make-up if you would like. We ask that all clients come with their hair styled as they normally wear it and we will add soft curls & spray to their hair. If we are doing your  make-up, we like to do the full make-up for you. We’ve got every colors for every skin tone. Our photographers are also highly trained make-up artists.

Then there’s the spray tan question. No, no, no, please don’t spray tan. Spray tans on occasion can be nice but never before a shoot. You just don’t know how the color will turn out or how even the coverage will be.  You also wouldn’t want any of the color to rub off on your clothes or the sheets during the shoot.

We know how important it is to bring a friend for moral support. Boudoir shoots can be a little intimidating if you haven’t done one before. Please feel free to bring a friend with you however, for your sake, we don’t allow friends, boyfriends or husbands on the set. We want you to feel your most comfortable and not self conscious.

Last but not least, don’t wait until your body is in “perfect shape”. Most of us never feel like we’re in the best shape. Trust that our photographers will play upon your finest features and create beautiful works of art for you.
