    Melissa Stewardson Photography, located in Orange County, CA and established in 2012 specializes in custom portraits of maternity, newborns, children and families. Experiencing a photo session with me should be fun and relaxing. I know what you're thinking...did she say fun and relaxing?! Am I crazy?! I don't think so. My goal for each session is to shoot photos that look natural and highlight the personalities and vibrancy of the people in them. While, I will shoot some traditional poses, I feel some of the best photos come during candid play or general foolishness! Time flies by so fast so let me capture your family memories today! I can't wait to get to know you and show you what I see through my lens!

Orange County, CA Family Photographer // Santa at the Beach!

This gorgeous family of 7 was out visiting Orange County from Scottsdale, AZ. So we planned on a season at the beach. As we were getting into our session I see the kids eyes all looking to their right. Low and behold it was Santa!!! walking up! He wasn’t there for us, but he came over and said hello and interacted with all the kids for a couple of minutes. I had my camera in hand so I did take a couple of shots…and I’m so glad I did. Check out the photo I got with Santa and the rest of their photos below!
