On the day before Thanksgiving, I don't think that any of expected it to be 95 degrees outside! But hey, this is Southern California; Orange County no less, and according to a super quick google search, we should be expecting to see 278 days of sunshine per year. The warm weather didn't didn't stop us, and you would never know that it we didn't have the "fall weather" we were all dressed for.
We met up at one of my absolute favorite locations to photographer in Irvine, Ca, and we had some really amazingly pretty, warm sunlight. It is days like this that I love being an Orange County Photographer! There aren't many other places in the country with almost guaranteed sunshine and nice weather all winter long.
Ryan and Tamara are some of my favorite people to photograph, because they are just so stinkin' photogenic! This is my 3rd holiday season taking their family photos, but the first time with their newest (and cutest, if I'm being honest) member of the family. Little Kade is such a happy guy, and I loved all of his various facial expressions. He could go from laughing to sad little baby tears, and back to laughing in a matter of a few moments.
Writing about this family, and their session would definitely not be complete if I didn't mention sweet little Briggs, their adorable pup! If there was ever a dog who belonged at a photo shoot, Briggs is the guy. He stays, he listens, and looks at the camera when I call his name! I think I might prefer taking his picture than some humans! (okay, that is probably just a joke). But really, I do love having pets come along to sessions, because they are truly part of the family!
