Orange County Engagement Session

These are super neat because the engagement session was in California, lasted all day, and is of a super cute and sweet couple, Adele and Kevin. I flew in to Orange County on Thursday morning, and then flew out late that evening. Kevin picked me up from the airport while Adele was returning from the salon. We photographed at their home in Yorba Linda for a bit. Then we went to a vineyard for some fun and beautiful scenery. I joined them for lunch and wine. Then the wild ride to to beach. We had to hurry to catch the sun before it set. Kevin is a good driver, but I swear he has driven race cars in this or another life! (Just kidding, you were fine Kevin.)
We had a really great day.

Well without further a do, here they are!

They are big baseball fans!

This is their little family.

It was bright out and hot (for California, 72 is hot!); gorgeous day!

Or maybe this is why is seemed so warm out...Adele & Kevin were giving me some super hot photos!

Kevin thought he would give the camera his super model 'look'...

Anyone guess 'Zoolander' was the inspiration?

This is exactly where Kevin proposed to Adele. She was brought from the spa area to here, where he was awaiting with champagne and a heart made
of rose petals, and an impressive diamond ring!

My back was to the water, so I couldn't warn them that
it was coming, and they were busy kissing. Too funny!

Post 200! The symbol of the future...

The symbol our the future, expecting parents, a beautiful pregnant belly, maternity portraits full of love. How perfect that this is my 200th blog post! I met Katelynn and Ryan through some wonderful clients of mine, Sara and Chris. The are one of 'my' bride and groom couples. Sara and Chris invited Katelynn and Ryan to join us on a 'trash the dress' shoot in Sedona. I was honored when Katelynn called me to do her maternity photos. We had a great time, at their home, and then at the town of Verrado. They are going to for sure make such great parents! Can't wait to shoot little Mr. Grant when he arrives!

Thank you to my assistant, Ryan, for helping with the following shot, the heart confetti toss.

This one is all about dad.
