Family Photography | New Book | Orange County | California

Filed under: baby, dogs, maternity, Portraits, Updates, Weddings — True Blue Photography @ 4:46 pm

It’s not every day that I become a published author… again but I’m super excited that my second book is being released on October 1st. Where my first book was about how to photograph women of all shapes and sizes, this book is all about how to photograph families and was written with the talented Lou Jacobs Jr. I can very much be a minimalist when it comes to gear when photographing families because I feel like people can relax so much more and enjoy their sessions when they aren’t inundated with huge lights in their faces. I think that the book provides a good insight as to how I work. Anyways… if you’re a photographer, aspiring photographer or even just a parent wanting to take better photos of your family (just remember to have your portrait done with your family as well), be sure to check out my book. It can be found on Amazon, Barnes and Noble as well as on the publisher’s site – Amherst Media

For those interested in my first book, it can be found at the publisher’s site Oliver-Cameron Publishing for the paperback version or at for an electronic copy.

Annual Family Portrait | 50% Off Session Fee Special | Los Alamitos | Photographer

Another whole year has gone by and it’s time again for my annual Holiday Portrait Days. Again this year we’re doing
three days in three locations.

Studio – Saturday Sept. 28th from 9-6

Beach – Saturday Oct. 5th from 9-6

Park – Saturday Nov. 9th from 9-5

Each appointment is one hour long which will give us lots of time to get great photos for your family, gifts and
for your holiday cards. Please let me know which date and time you’d prefer and how many people (and pets) that
you’re bringing either by email or by phone at 562-299-2506 as soon as possible.
Both the studio as well as the park are pet friendly. In prior years, the spaces filled up very quickly so please
don’t wait until the last minute. If you are unable to make it on those dates but would still like holiday/family
photos, please contact me to set up date and time that works better for you.

I love referrals and am offering a free 8×10 to every current client who refers a friend (new client) when they
book a session with me.

Remember… all orders must be in by November 23rd in order to guarantee delivery by Christmas.

Carole-Ann and Michael Are Having a Baby…

It’s not every day that my daughter sends me a text showing a little stick with a plus sign on it but several months ago she did just that. Just months after her beautiful wedding to my most favorite son-in-law in the world. Of course he’s my only son-in-law but that doesn’t matter; he’s still my favorite. 😀 Fast forward to her showing… I mean really showing and we’re doing her maternity photos.

How could time possibly have gone so fast that she went from her being a darling little girl stealing my soda (calling it Dadoo) and licking ketchup off her french fries until they were soggy messes? Where did the little girl running through the sprinklers with a big stick go? My sweet teenager showing the horse that her father and leased for her and volunteering at the barn? Yes… I said sweet and teenager in the same sentence and I meant it. 😀 Where did my little girl go? It’s quite obvious that more than a few years have passed though and that I’m going to be a grandmother. Wow… a grandmother…. a very cool thing indeed but I’m worried – my baby is going to be in labor and in pain delivering this little angel into this world. If I could carry that pain for her, I would. I think that any parent worth their salt would. Life just doesn’t happen that way though now does it? The truth is that no matter how old she gets or how many children she has, she’ll always be my little girl.

Congrats to my gorgeous daughter and favorite son-in-law! Note – my adorable grandson has already arrived by the time of this blog post. Grandma has been a busy bee and is just now catching up. 😀 More to follow.
