Orange County Wedding Photographer , Los Angeles Wedding Photographer , Southern California Wedding Photographer
Welcome to my blog!
Hi! My name is Blair and I am a wedding and portrait photographer!
I am based out of Southern California, but absolutely love to travel for weddings everywhere! I love becoming good friends with our clients; watching their love blossom, their families grow, capturing those fun and intimate moments in their life... and of course, having a blast doing it all along the way.
This post is very exciting for me for a few reasons: 1. Its my 100th blog post. woo hoo!! (We have sure come a LONG way since we started!) 2. There is a very special video of Jordan’s birth, plus a little more…. 3. It includes some pretty special photos….our very first family pictures!
See what I mean, its seriously FULL of excitement!
So I wont keep you waiting, here is a fun little video of our hospital adventures and some fun Jordan moments. I’m not gunna lie, I was peeking over Sean’s shoulder when he was making this for you guys, and got a little teary eyed. Our baby is pretty amazing!
So our super sweet friend (and photographer extraordinaire) Kristin Rogers offered to take some family photos of us, and we jumped at the chance. Kristin’s work is always so warm, soft and beautiful. I absolutly adore the way she captured our little family. Jordan was just a few days shy of 1 month old when she took these, and I could not be any more thankful for her taking these of us. They are just perfect in my opinion!
In other news , you may have noticed some fun ways to share my posts at the bottom of the posts. Please feel free to do so if you find them as exciting as we do!
So we were lucky enough to be able to shoot an old friends wedding and it was PERFECT! Kat and I went to Granada Heights Friends Church together and have known each other for quite a while. She is the sweetest girl you could ever meet! Her fiance Kelby was also a pretty rad dude when we met him. So being able to share in their day was super fun.
The wedding took place on the most perfect southern California day at the Hillcrest Terrace at Hillcrest Park. Kat and Kelby did so much with a small budget! Details were definitely their thing. You see, Kat is a graphic designer and left no stone unturned. From the lemonade stand to the table numbers, it was extremely creative and fun to see. Their friends were so much fun too as they busted choreographed dance moves all night long!
Kat, you were a beautiful bride. Your dress was made for you! Kelby, as handsome as a groom could be! Thanks so much guys for letting us be a part of your day! Best wishes in your life together.
See what I mean? Kat did an amazing job with the details!!
So I know it has been a long time since my last blog post….like a really long time. But I swear I have a really great excuse… I had a gorgeous baby boy.
(warning, this is a pretty long post – but so worth it.)
Our amazing son Jordan was born a week late on June 30th, 2010. After lots of doctor appointments going back and forth with our group of doctors trying to decide if our baby was “too big for me” , they decided to let me go naturally (and not schedule the c-section they had thought I might need).I felt like I was pregnant forever and got to be pretty huge. At our last appointment on June 29th, they sprung the news on us that we were going in to the hospital that night to have our baby (I have goosebumps just thinking about it). So we went in at 9pm that night, (painful) contractions started right away and I progressed through the night. Then, again – I progressed slowly through the day. By the time 8pm rolled around the next night they ended up having to put me on oxygen and started flipping be back and forth since the baby’s heart rate was doing some funny things. After 3 more hours, he had clearly stopped progressing , and his heart rate was not able to get back to normal. At about that time our amazing friend Molly was there to start our birth photos – and a few minutes later the doctor came in to tell us he was not coming the way we had hoped, but that in 20 minutes or so we would be meeting our little man via c-section. At that point we were ready for what ever plan God had for us, and just wanted a healthy baby. At 10:47pm Jordan was born, and he was perfect.
So we were not able to get the actual “birth pictures” that we had planned for, but I would say that these are just as amazing. Molly, thank you so so much for coming , praying , and just being such a great friend to us. We are forever thankful for these beautiful pictures!! (you can check out Molly’s super sweet post here).
Absolutely IN LOVE with this picture!
Molly , you are such an amazing friend! Again, we are soooo thankful!
….and just a few we took of him in the hospital
and a few we have taken since we got home…
He has changed so much from week to week!
Here he is in his swing, with his birdies that he loves so much
Jordan makes the best faces ever! Love him!
and his announcements!
We are just so in love with him and can’t believe that he is already a month old! We feel truly blessed to have each day that God has given us with our precious little boy, and cant wait to enjoy him and all of the exciting moments to come!
So I will break up the Jordan love into a couple posts, coming up soon will be our first family pictures (that I just love to pieces!).
So a couple weeks ago we shot our last wedding! Well…our last pre-baby wedding that is!So we are now on “maternity leave” till we pick up with our end of July weddings!
….And let me tell you, we couldn’t have had a better time at the last pre-baby wedding! Tracy and Chris are amazing, and their wedding (on a boat!) was just as awesome! The day could not have gone any smoother and it felt like it just flew by.
Tracy and Chris, thank you so much for inviting us to be part of your big day! You guys are such a perfect couple and we are so glad to be a little part of your story.
And of course, and big huge thank you goes to my BFF Sue for another awesome referral, you are the best!
I have to say I am in love with the grainy effect on this picture!
Love me some colored shoes!
Hello beautiful!!! Tracy…you are stunning!
Chris, you don’t look so bad yourself…
So we had about 5 minutes for portraits with this beautiful couple (a liiittttle shorter than normal),
but I was beyond happy with what we got!
As you can see, we had one happy newly wed couple on our hands
My favorite shot of the day! …taken just before their grand entrance.
