My Munchkins: A {Shoot} with Sylvia Galloway & Holiday Mini Sessions

I'm so excited to share my 2012 photo shoot of the kids with my
cute friend Syl of Sylvia Galloway Photography.
Last year we shot at the fantastic Orange Circle in Old Town Orange.
This year we shot on Balboa Island in and around the Balboa Fun Zone.

With the holidays just around the corner, Syl is offering mini sessions! 
A mini session is 30 minutes & includes 10 edited images for $150. 
Each session is good for up to 5 people ($20 each additional person). 
You can contact Syl via email at

Syl works magic with her camera and I am always
so thrilled to get my CD full of hi-res images to see what she's captured.

She's a mama with a Little of her own,
so she works great with kids and keeps them smiling,
laughing, and showing off their new duds.

I also love shooting with Syl because she's available before the shoot
to work out they styling and clothing options.
For each shoot I take the kids shopping and then text her pictures
of the kids and I'm like "this or this" or these shoes or these ones".

She has a fabulous eye for composition and color and so I love getting her feedback
as to what will work best for the location and the feel of the shoot.

Another plus is that my kids adore her,
and they do whatever she says!
For reals - even Miss Diva Isabella - and that is amazing.

These were the boots and leggings that inspired the ensembles for the shoot.
When I saw them, I knew I had to have them!

'Hooray! We did a good job! What do we get?'

Some delicious Balboa ice cream cones should suffice :)

You can find Syl and more of her fabulousness on Flickr.
