Merry Christmas! And the Peca Christmas Portraits.

Matt and Sarah are both in the worship band at Harbor Trinity, our church in Costa Mesa, and Matt is a full-time pastor there as well.  We all watched as Sarah came full term and now little Caleb is officially the cutest kid on the block.  We had so much fun shooting this, and I liked how they were willing to shoot inside their home, as well as some other not-so-standard locations.  I think these kind of “environmental” portraits really bring back the memories years down the road because of the familiarity of the surroundings.  Plus, there’s zero chance another family will be using the same location for photos! (This happened to me recently at a number of different popular parks in Orange County).  This turned out to be one of my favorite family portraits of all time.  Enjoy.

Merry Christmas Everyone!  Put the computer away and GO spend time with your family.

Meet Little Abby

My big sis Pam and her husband took some family portraits on Thanksgiving (my birthday!) and I’m just getting around to posting them.  Her daughter Abby is so adorable you will instantly forgive her for grabbing your nose or glasses, which she does to everyone.  I have tons of photos of Abby, but very few with both mom and dad.  Here are some of my favorites:

KISStastic Album

I have been hearing so many good things about KISS wedding albums that I decided to finally give them a try.  Jason and Kara’s wedding was back in September, and they were one of the most efficient (and awesome) couples I’ve worked with in the album design process.  We are crossing our fingers that they will get their album by Christmas!  I’ve posted a slideshow of the final album design, for you to enjoy.  The album is 8″ x 8″, which is great for portability and storage.  I’ll post some photos when it arrives, and I hope to get an interview of their reactions when I go drop it off.  What can I say, it’s my favorite part of the whole process, to see a client’s first reaction to the album they will hang on to for the rest of their lives.  Click on the image below to see the slideshow (it’s only 1 minute long):
