Orange County family photographer

Holiday Family Photos | Montage Resort & Spa, Laguna Beach, Ca.

I’m a sucker for a fun, beautiful bunch of good looking people. I love the energy they bring. The conversation we have between shots. But most importantly, I love the memories we create together! Carla contacted me a couple months prior to our photoshoot and wanted to surprise her husband Robert with a holiday family photo session. I was definitely game! Nothing better than a surprise photoshoot in my book! The location we settled on was Montage Resort & Spa in Laguna Beach California. It’s a popular destination for local families and photographers, due to the properties vast grounds and beautiful landscape. The day of the shoot came fast. Next thing I know i’m knees deep in the beach sand snapping a million photos of 5 well dressed, well spoken, always smiling people! The two hour session flew by fast. I don’t think I’ve ever worked as hard as I have during a photo session as I did for the Fitzgeralds. I’m not complaining by any means, I’m just saying that time flies when you’re having fun!
