I am so happy Christmas is right around the corner and my wife, Melody and I get to spend some much needed time with our families. We always enjoy our tradition of Christmas Eve with my parents and Christmas Day with Melody’s parents. My family always celebrates Christmas with midnight mass, and opening presents when we return back home at 1am. We stay up until all presents are opened, which usually ends up at 3am. Its our tradition and we enjoy it year after year. Here is hoping your family enjoys your traditions throughout the years!
Since I am Holiday Portrait Photographer near Coto de Caza, the Gutierrez family contacted me and wanted to get a woodsy feel to their family session this year and they wanted to go some place they’ve never been to. This was a far drive for them since they were in Costa Mesa during the day running errands, but they were troopers and drove all the way out to our location. I do love this location alot, its amazingly beautiful, once you find your little area without all of the other photographers in the way. We ended up having a great time shooting with the Gutierrez family and it was tiring trying to keep up with the little kids since all they wanted to do was NOT take pictures. Anyway, here are some of the favorite images that we loved from our photography session together.
