I think once you become a mom, you become an amateur photographer in some ways. When I had my first son I couldn’t seem to stop myself from taking pictures of him – can anyone relate??  I’m always looking for unique and special ways to capture the many stages my kids go through. They grow and change so fast, it’s hard to keep up sometimes! When I was first introduced to Classic Kids Photography, my initial reaction was how stunning and unique their photos were. They do studio shoots right here in Newport Mesa on Balboa!  I love that their photos are unique and nothing like what you think of when you think “studio” photos.

Michelle runs the Newport studio and is so much fun!  She is SO great with the kids and babies and it is so apparent how much she LOVES her job.  You are included during the whole process right from the start! Everything from a pre-consultation, choosing your favorite proofs to helping with the design and framing of your chosen prints. Not only that, but they really cater to learning about your family and emphasize on having a great experience during your shoot.  Watch out though – it’s near impossible to choose the photos you want…they are all just SO gorgeous!

I can’t say enough great things about Michelle and the Classic Kids process. But, the best part is, they offer a complimentary shoot to all the moms in an OC Mommy and Me class!  In fact, Classic Kids just recently offered a special Valentine’s Day Mini Session for the whole OC Mommy and Me family. Michelle opened up her studio to all of us; quipped with a table full of delicious appetizers and beverages!  I just had to post some of the pictures from the shoot – they were too cute to pass up. Thanks Classic Kids for continuing to turn our kids’ photos into beautiful works of art!
