Dillinger :: Orange County Newborn Photography

About 4 years ago I met Dillinger’s big sister at her newborn shoot. I remembered that she wasn’t really interested in sleeping during her shoot so I was worried her brother might follow in her footsteps. :) Fortunately, he slept for most of the time and made my job easy!

Here are some favorites…

Cathy and Scott :: Laguna Beach Wedding Photography

You know when you shoot a wedding you love and you are dying to post it on your blog but then things happen and you realize you had the post ready but never actually posted it. Well, that’s what happened with Scott and Cathy’s wedding! It was featured on Style Me Pretty awhile back but I have to share it on my blog too!

Scott and Cathy had an afternoon wedding with close family and friends. It was such a realaxed day and everyone had a great time! Cathy did an amazing job with the details. She worked so hard to make everything perfect.

Maura’s Minis :: Valentine’s Day Mini Shoot

It’s been more than a year since I met sweet Maura but it feels like yesterday. I will never forget her beautiful face and all of the love that filled the room that day. She was born still but she was able to move many people to be better and do more in this life. Shortly after Maura was born, Maura’s Mission was started. They provide memorial blocks for those who have lost their sweet little ones. Unfortuntely, they aren’t taking any new orders due to lack of funds. So, lets change that! 50% of all profits from Maura’s Minis will go to Maura’s Mission! If you can’t make it to the minis but would like to make a donation, you can go directly to the website HERE.

This was such a fun shoot last year! The kissing booth, made by Maura’s daddy, was the perfect prop for this set! This year, you will get to choose your images the same day and enjoy some sweet treats while you wait. The shoot location will be in Placentia. Here are the details:

Are you planning on doing four or more mini sessions this year? You might want to consider setting up a mini shoot package. You book four or more minis now and you are guaranteed a time, receive priority when picking the hour you want and it’s discounted! If you book 4 shoots, you will save 10% and receive a $10 image credit for each shoot. Book 5 and save 15% with a $10 image credit for each shoot. Book six or more and receive 20% off along with the $10 image credit. The full amount for the mini shoot package needs to be paid in advance. There will only be 10 mini shoot packages available so if you are interested, email Chantel at chantel@richelledante.com and she will give you a quote for the sessions you want!
