indoor christmas tree family photos orange county

Alas, the Christmas decorations are boxed up and the lights are taken down but I’m keeping the holiday spirit alive for another moment by sharing a selection of my favorite images from my Christmas Magic Sessions done in 2017. Eight of my top fifteen most liked posts on Instagram in 2017 came from these Christmas Magic Sessions.

This year I decided to start what I hope becomes an annual tradition of allowing my Facebook fans to choose a favorite holiday tree. I posted an image of each tree in a gallery and voting was done simply by “liking” the image of the favorite tree. It was a tight race but ultimately the Green family took home the trophy.

I’m also participating in a blog circle with some fabulous photography friends to celebrate the New Year – more on that at the end of the post.  But for now, I hope you enjoy looking through some of my favorite Christmas Magic images of 2017!

As you may already know, I am a child and family photographer in Orange County – Yorba Linda to be exact. I specialize in creating beautiful lifestyle storytelling images and custom heirloom albums for my clients. My Christmas Magic sessions depicted here are done in my client’s homes after sunset when the only available light is the light from the tree (and fireplace if one is available).  You can view selected images from my 2016 Christmas Magic sessions here.

I will begin booking these limited edition sessions for Christmas 2018 in August with priority booking links going out to those on my VIP list. You can opt in to my VIP list here.

Finally, remember that blog circle I told you about?  Well next up is Taneill Davis of Hucklebee Photography with a heartfelt 2017 year in review post.  Click over to see this awesome post by your favorite family & newborn photographer in Medicine Hat.

KC! These are just gorgeous! I cannot believe what you can pull off with Christmas tree light! And you’ll have to spill your secret on how you create that gorgeous star-effect. My favorite – the one of the couple dancing, from above. That one made me pause and feel something. I love them all, but that one got me. Wonderful job!

I love these! What a beautiful session!

Wow these are gorgeous! You captured so much light, love and magic!

What fabulous pictures! I totally love all the sparkles! It’s a wonderful idea to do this sessions in home!

What a beautiful idea. I’ve never seen in-home Christmas sessions before. You’ve made their homes look absolutely magical. Well done.

Thanks Taneill! These sessions are so special to me and my clients! I seriously believe every home looks magical with a properly lit Christmas Tree!
