The phrase “time flies” seems like an understatement in the grand scheme of things, doesn’t it?
Looking back on some of our favorite moments with our children, spouses, and parents… it seems like these precious pieces of our past speed by too quickly. Trying to reminisce about our favorite moments with the people we love can sometimes leave us with a sense of whiplash as we attempt to rewind the clock and fully enjoy those unpredictable occasions of pure, unbridled joy. It’s easy to take the joyous moments with the people we love for granted, but what if we could stop time for just a moment?
With Brystan Studios, we can push pause on the laughter, the tears of joy, and the generational celebration that you only seem to appreciate after the moment has passed. You can memorialize the beautiful moments you and your family share with a simple camera shutter click.
I have been catering to the Orange County, Laguna Beach, and Newport Coast areas for years, utilizing the idyllic natural backdrop our beaches offer to cultivate fun portrait sessions and stunning products for every family that works with Brystan Studios.
As much as I love the actual portrait session, one of my favorite parts of creating these works of art for families is seeing their albums, portraits, and other products tie the household together. We strive to ensure every product you purchase blends in with the aesthetic your household works to uphold. Still, it’s incredible to see how anything from a massive family portrait to a coffee table album can help complete a room and turn a house into a home.
Not only can you capture these special moments with your significant other and children. You can invite your parents, grandparents, and grandchildren into the mix. Make new memories with three (or even four) generations of loved ones present, creating precious heirlooms that your family will cherish for years to come.

As fun and special as the sessions with my clients are, I know that the real prize is turning these moments into lasting memories through the images we capture.
These will become family treasures as they can gather around a custom family album years later, or add to a growing gallery wall of favorite images adorning their hallway.

Modern Rustic Holiday Family Photo Sessions with Orange County Photographer
Since we’re on the West Coast, maybe your version of the Holidays is something a bit more rustic or beachy? In this package, we’ll design your family session with a nod towards what makes the holidays special for your family.
Many of the families we work with don’t want the “traditional” holiday photo with Christmas lights, trees and mistletoe, but consider booking an annual family session as the tradition itself.
Basically, their opportunity to get everyone together, take photos that include everyone (and that make everyone look great) and mark the annual milestone for their family.
We even have a hair and make-up add-on available if you want to look their best and get a little help from a professional makeup artist and hair stylist. Perfect for moms who spend their time getting everyone else ready and could use a little pampering herself!

These portraits are art pieces with beautiful painted backdrops from Europe – these are sure to be a conversation piece that you’ll look back and treasure forever.

We had some absolutely gorgeous hand crafted albums come in this week from Leather Craftsman in Santa Ana California. Leather Craftsman is the premiere manufacture of hand crafted photography albums in Orange County and Brystan Studios has worked with them for years. Their product is just stunning and a true compliment to photography. A handcrafted photography album full of your pictures is one of the best gifts you can give someone special. We like to call them coffee table art books as they are something you will not want to hide away. As part of your experience after a photoshoot at Brystan Studios Orange County, you will sit in our beautiful viewing room and watch a slide show of your pictures. At that point you can work with our studio manager Nicole and layout an album with your personal touch. These two albums were made for a wedding gift and an anniversary present, both fitting occasions for an album. What or who will you make one for?
I don’t know about you but when I think of a photo album I immediately get the image of a large three prong notebook with plastic sleeves holding various 5×7 prints of everything under the sun or my parents monumental wedding album collecting dust on the very top of a very crowded bookshelf in the office… possibly the garage. Nostalgic as that is, our photo albums at Brystan go above and beyond…. which is why we refer to them as ‘coffee table art books’. You will not want to shove these beauties between the cookbooks and obscure novels you may one day read. They are stunningly beautiful! Professionally bound and built to last. We offer a wide variety of colors, fabrics, adornments, textures, sizes, imprinting, gilding… the list is endless! Scroll through the pictures for a little sample of the possibilities!
