family photography studio orange county nicole caldwell 10A birthday celebration for these sisters. Their birthdays are a few days apart so it was a birthday celebration on the photo studio for this shoot, with a fun bright yellow backdrop and confetti balloons. The Roomba worked extra at set strike.


some behind the scenes from my shoot

family photography studio orange county nicole caldwell 06This is the way we like it for family shoot.  No combing of the hair, no fixing of clothes, just having fun, together as a family.  Genuine smiles, laughter, and chaos.  Letting kids be kids, eyes closed, not looking at the camera, perfectly imperfect.

Those fun, organic, takes in between poses, smiles etc, were eyes closed and laughter happens, a fun place, after all we were at Happy Camp.

It’s understandable to look at pinterest for ideas / inspiration.  My Advice?  find a photographer whose style you are drawn to, then show up to the set, no expectations, ready to let loose, have fun and trust them.Happy_campers_nicole_caldwell_0069_resize

Tiffany is a HUGE fan of everything 70’s and the macrame in the shot is one she personally made.  Sienna won second place in a hula hoop contest, and that ukulele is hers, she was a bit miffed as it was out of tune, which made for some great captures. Sienna injured her foot, and the boot was a wonderful surprise, and a must to stay on for some shots.Happy_campers_nicole_caldwell_0125_resizeHappy_campers_nicole_caldwell_0135_resizeHappy_campers_nicole_caldwell_0189_resize
