The Most Important Thing {Orange County Family Photographer}

Well, that was a nice long blog break (OOOPS) … I seriously cannot look at my son running into the ocean any longer, so let’s continue shall we?

When I book a session with a client, I send out a little questionnaire so I can get the basics from them: names, address, phone number, pin numbers, shoe sizes, who they voted for on American Idol, and do they like hamsters?  (I do.)  I also ask for the parents to give me a little blurb about their kiddos, so I can go into the session prepared.

I knew when this mom sent back the questionnaire, that I was going to love this family.  Not only did I get some tips on their favorite things (ummm, hello?  Airbending?  We are HUGE Aang fans), but when I read what she wanted out of the session, my heart about burst with excitement:

our family is THE MOST important thing in our lives and I want that captured forever; for when we are old and wrinkly and our kids are adults.

I can’t really picture mom and dad old and wrinkly (they are that gorgeous), but I really hope I captured the almost tangible love that this family has for one another.  Watching them play and snuggle and tickle with each other was a privilege, and I feel so lucky that they picked little ol’ me (who is already wrinkly, by the way) to photograph this time for them.

M. family, thank you so much for a wonderful session, your gallery will be ready soon!

These photos made my heart leap out of my chest, and my eyes tear up. I would love just one or two photos like these and my family. So beautiful…the light, color, emotion. Sigh…perfection.

These are gorgeous pics Christie, and you certainly did what the family asked you to do, and then some! Too many great ones to single them out one by one, but I REALLY love the B&W pic of Dad and Daughter!
