“Little” Luke | Orange County Children’s Portraits

This might just be one of our favorite subjects to photograph. You’ve probably seen him once or twice through the years. Our working relationship (and personal relationship) with him started way back on April 1, 2007 when he weighed just 5 lbs. 14 oz. and became the first Kimble Kid. For the first three years of his life (or more), I rarely called him by his first name and referred to him most often as “Little”. While the name has worn off (mostly because his grandad said I couldn’t call him that forever), even at 8 years old, he will always be my first little one.

Turning 8 is a big deal in our family so I asked Marvin for a Luke photoshoot. Here are the results: LukeBaptism005v2

Daithi & Grace {Engagement Portrait Session | Laguna Beach}

We absolutely love celebrating occasions like this one and were so happy the weather cooperated so we could capture the emotion between these two. The entire coast was fogged in on this Sunday afternoon. The surf cameras up and down the beaches looked like they were blanketed in snow – completely whited out. Marvin made a courtesy call to Grace and Daithi informing them that the weather may be too dreary to capture the images they wanted, packed up his camera and gear, crossed his fingers, and headed for Laguna.

The fog rolled off the coast just in time for that magic time of day when the sun turns everything it touches golden. That warm light embraced these two as they stared into each other’s eyes, smooched, smiled, and celebrated their love for each other!
