First Birthday Orange County Photographer

Sweet Baby Courtney {Orange County Family Photographer}

I photographed Courtney at her home in Irvine last weekend and oh my goodness was she adorable. She had the most amazing hair and sweetest little smile, a winning combination if you ask me! We ended the session with a little "destroy the cake" fun for her upcoming first birthday party. Here are a few of my favorite images of Courtney and her family, enjoy!
