the almazans // watch me grow // orange county lifestyle family

it is truly an honor to be able to capture a family through special moments & new chapters in their lives. i have been capturing susan and ian and watching their beautiful family grow for the last 4 years. seeing their first daughter grow into a big sister and calling me “auntie mimi” is so precious to me. with the watch me grow package, i get to hang out with the family every few months: maternity, newborn, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, & 1 year. thank you, susan & ian, for letting me a part of your family
