Preview of the twins A + A - Washington In Home Newborn Session

Just before Easter I was able to fly up to Washington with my two girls and visit with some of my family up there. My cousin (who was my maid of honor) just had baby number 2... and 3! Yep, she had the cutest IDENTICAL twin boys.

Just wanted to show a quick preview from their session.

During some family shots I handed my 10 year old daughter my camera since I didn't want it to fall off the bed and she took some fun behind the scenes shots. Good thing I showed her how to focus my camera!

Here's one of the images she created.

This is how I photographed the last hour of their session, with my sleeping 12 month old on my back. It worked and my legs got worked a little extra too. haha

While the boys were still taking their nursing break we got some fun photographs of big sister and daddy. I think this one is sweet.

The boys have this awesome accent wall of clouds!

My daughter had the window seat on the plane so on the flight home I set my camera and then handed it to her. I think it's really cool how the clouds looked like snow and sometimes like rushing water.

I'll be back with their full blogpost soon!

JD's In Home Newborn Session-La Mirada Newborn Photographer

Exactly one month before I had photographed Joy's Baby Bump and now at 6 days new I went back and captured JD and his family together.

Doesn't your heart just melt? The sweetness and her adorable curls!

Love that scrunchy face baby's make when they're stretching.

 I set up in JD's room because he has that awesome barnwood wall that his daddy put together, inspiration by his mama. 

Little Mr. was awake during almost his whole session, he just wanted to check out what all the commotion was about. It was about you sweet boy!

Like I said "almost" the whole time. He had a nursing break and that put him out for just enough time for this sweet shot.

Since we did most of Joy's maternity session in their room we thought it would be nice to have the family memories captured there too.

Big sister was done oooing and ahhhing over brother. haha

I am looking forward to capturing JD's 1st year milestones! I love watching my Baby Plan babies grow!

In Home Maternity - La Mirada Photographer

Recently I was able to photograph Joy's growing baby bump in their home and I love how these pictures came out.

Her husband Jimmy, put together this wall that is in the baby's room and it looks and smells amazing!

Their daughter Jordyn (who was one of my Milestone Plan Babies) was napping during most of the time I was there because she was not feeling good. Cuddles with Mommy always help!

Sweet girl will be celebrating her 2nd birthday around the same time she will be meeting her baby brother.

I love this one!

Newborn: Baby Bear - OC Newborn Photographer

I would like to introduce to you sweet little Cullen Samuel!

I met Cullen when he was 2 weeks new. He actually was born just a few days before Christmas, at 36 weeks. I think this little one was just too excited to wait until 2016 to see his family.

Cullen is actually the rainbow baby of the family. There would be 4 boys in this picture but one of them God is already holding extra close.

I truly love this picture of him and his mama! He seriously smiled at least 5 times during his session. You can really tell how loved he is. :)

Christmas Baby - Orange County Newborn Photographer

 Happy New Year!

The week before Christmas this Little One's mama, Andrea, contacted me about newborn pictures for her baby girl Audriana. She told me she wanted 1st Christmas pictures, so that's what we did.

Audriana was nearly 4 weeks old when I met her. Isn't she just a little doll!?

 Perfect little Christmas gift!

I'm so excited that Audriana is one of my Milestone Plan babies! I'll get to see her grow and photograph her chubby legs, gummy smile, first steps and of course her birthday cake fun!

Contact me to book your newborn session and find out the perks of signing up for the Milestone Plan!

Our Christmas Pictures - La Habra Family Photographer

I told my husband the other day that I decided we'll just send out New Years cards and he asked if I had a picture that I thought would be good to use for a card. Well sure, I have pictures but not a family picture.
So we headed out to a local park on his one day off that he had this week (yesterday) and took some updated pictures.

 I won't post the pictures that I used for our card, don't want to spoil it!
 While I was taking individual images of the kids I had asked them to tell me a joke. This is their thinking face... except Blake, this is his cheese face. I love his composer hair!
 Charlotte was all into sticks and leaves.

 My in-laws met us with their dog that the kids totally love.

 When you take a guy picture you have to take a serious one. haha 
When we got home I put Charlotte by the tree. She is definitely a gift! :)

I hope you all have a MERRY CHRISTmas!

Many Blessings,

DITL: Alaina Nunez-Orange County Documentary Photographer

Day In The Life (DITL for short) sessions are photographed in a documentary way. My regular sessions are Lifestyle which are a mix of portraits and candid moments. The difference is, those candid moments, I usually advise you where to stand or which direction to look.

(Lifestyle Session)

With DITL sessions, I do not give you any direction. There's no "stop when you get here" or "look that way". I'm the family member you invite in to tell the story that would otherwise be untold memories.

These are such sweet sessions for me as I know as a mom of 5, I do not always get in the pictures with my children and I am unable to photograph our life because I am living life by being a part of our family life.

So when I am asked to document life moments such as marriage, birth and family life, I feel honored to be trusted with the privilege of being invited into the moments that need not be forgotten.

Have you ever thought of having a DITL session for your family? When family from out of town is gathered together is one of the best times to have one! 

I was able to photograph one family that had gathered together for their yearly tamale making day. You can check out that session at, A Family Tradition I was told that I had caught pictures such as their Grandma laughing that no one had ever caught before. How precious is that!? I love that I was able to give them that gift!

You also don't have to wait for a special gathering. Everyday is a gift and should be celebrated and documented. I would love to do that for you!

Contact me so we can set a date! Your family's story is ready to be told.
