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’s Engagement Session…

My oldest daughter has found the man of her dreams and is getting married this summer. I got the privilege of doing their engagement session. We spent an entire day together starting at the Los Angeles Temple for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and ending at Disneyland. It seems like just yesterday she was this adorable child with big brown eyes and ringlets. Time truly has flown.

Even though I was working, it was great to spend the day with them and get to know my future son-in-law better. Welcome to the family Michael.  May the rest of your lives be filled with happiness and love. I love you both very much!

Very near where they met – both were working at Disneyland at the time. 😀

Mike and Tina got hitched….

Filed under: Weddings — Tags: , , , , , — True Blue Photography @ 11:14 pm

Mike and Tina got married at Tivoli-Too in Newport Beach on a gorgeous April day. They started out their day at the Surf and Sand Resort getting ready for the big event. They had a bit of a rough morning that included the closure of several miles of Pacific Coast Highway and Tina’s makeup artist canceling at the last minute. Thankfully two makeup artists arrived to save the day and PCH opened up enough to allow the bridal party to get to the hotel. Having gotten all their wedding day drama out of the way, the rest of the day was amazingly perfect. Congrats Mike and Tina!
