Children’s Photographer Huntington Beach California
I finally had the opportunity to photograph Baby K in her first ever official portrait session. Kristine and Jon are probably the sweetest couple I’ve ever met, and one of my most favorite clients. I photographed their wedding a couple years ago at Saint Vincent de Paul in Huntington Beach, and have since photographed a few of Kristine’s former co-workers’ weddings also. I told Jon “they say babies are the most photogenic at 8 months old” and sure enough he contacted me when Baby K was about that age to schedule a session. We took a few shots at my studio first, then headed to downtown Huntington Beach for some different backdrops and the lovely, soft natural light. The AMAZING ChinnyLulu Designs was kind enough to lend me some of her fabulous hairpieces for the shoot. The one shown is a classic, white baby headband with bow. I’ll eventually post more pix showing the awesome ones with feathers; they’re to die for!
I used a textured overlay on this image to create a darker, more dramatic background so Baby K’s bright outfit stands out even more.
You caught Baby K perfectly. She looks like she’s looking right back at you and is listening to your every word. Nice clean photo of her face! Beautiful job. And yes, I would guess that Jonathan & his wife ARE wonderful….Jonathan was wonderful back in 6th grade when I had him as a student…can’t see him being anything but wonderful!
Thank you so much for your kind words Kari.
That is an amazing picture of Kaelyn. The colors pop, her eyes are beautiful and I really like how it sorta looks like you’re using a tilt-shift to get that shallow depth of field.
Thanks Vince! Sounds like you know a bit about photography :) I used a 50mm, 1.4 lens set at 2.8 & had her sit about a foot in front of the wall to attain the shallow depth of field. That my favorite lens for portraits, and it’s by far the least expensive one I own!
What a wonderful picture. Her eyes look so beautiful. The colors areso bright. Great Great Picture.
Don’t know anything about photography, so I just wanted to say that’s a beautiful picture of a beautiful baby!
What a cute baby, nice capture!
I absolutely love this picture of my goddaughter :D She looks like a lil person and she’s growing up so fast. I can’t wait to see the rest of her pictures.
beautiful pix of kaelyn captured by a good camera and and by a good photographer. She sure is photogenic and her beauty was captired in ths picture. I’m so eager to see the rest of the pictures and have those on my collection for her album that i’m making.
the dark bg really brought out kaelyn’s brightness and her big round eyes really stood out. man! this pic makes me want to learn photography!!! but overall: BOMB!.com/DOPE! :D
In the sake of cuteness I quote Despicable me, “She’s So Fluffy!” My immediate reaction due to the high level of cute factor she gives off :]

My niece is so cute :) Her eyes really do stand out in this picture. Love the vibrant colors that contrast with the darker background; it really draws your attention to her. Excellent job!
I am color blind but I can see everything in this picture. She is as good looking as grand Pa at 8 months old. Jon and Tin, keep up the good work . God Bless all of you.
Beautiful picture of my granddaughter. She really looks like her mom. Can’t wait to see the rest of her pictures.
Job well done.
Kaelyn is so beautiful …so cute.. with the head band. She is photogenic. Great Picture!!
So cute!! Totally looks like both of you! Perfect :D

I like the saturated background, it adds lots of visual crunch and interesting texture to the layout. Cute shot! The look of curiosity on her face is great. Well-captured shot.
