Orange County In Home Session / by Julie Cruz

Ok, i'm going to apologize in advance for posting so many photos, but it was ridiculously hard to narrow down sneak peeks, so i'm posting a ton. I am SO in love with in home sessions. They are so much fun, so much more relaxed than on-location shoots, not having to worry about dragging clothing, snacks, etc to shoots, having to find a bathroom if your little ones need to go, etc, etc. You're in your own home, so everything is there, your kids are already comfortable where they are, they aren't distracted by cars or people going by, etc. I would LOVE to do more in home sessions, so shoot me an email to set up a session (and yes, I do travel to OC/LA, etc for an additional fee) ;) I first photographed this family 2 years ago, and immediately fell in love. Their style was rad, their kids had awesome names, they were up for fun stuff, and they were super sweet. When they contacted me about an in home session, I was beyond excited. I already knew (just from a chair that they brought as a prop to their last shoot - haha) that their house was going to be rad.....I just didn't know HOW rad it would be (and yes, I love the word rad ;)). It was amazing (as you'll see below), and the kids had grown so much! Georgia (7) is gorgeous as ever and such a ham. She wanted to be in pretty much every photo, whereas adorable little Ryder (almost 3) was in charge of the shoot (like most kids under 4 are ;) haha) and ran off whenever he felt like it, but did awesome and definitely worked the camera as well. We had so many laughs during the shoot....and as you can see, everyone had a blast.
