Meet Taylor. This beautiful, sweet, funny, brave little girl is battling a rare form of childhood cancer. Taylor’s dream was to be a singer, and over the past few weeks Make-A-Wish Orange County and the Inland Empire made that wish come true! You can read the full story on Taylor’s wish in Parenting OC Magazine – where she was on the April cover!

This past weekend, I had the special honor of being Taylor’s personal paparazzi and photographing her Wish Party, a culmination and celebration of all of the incredible experiences that were granted as part of her wish. Her day started with getting glammed up by her personal glam squad at Tress Apothecary and Salon in Newport Beach. From there the star climbed into a stretch limo and headed to her party for a red carpet arrival. Dozens of her friends and family came out to Boathouse Collective to celebrate Taylor, hear her newly recorded singles, and get their own signed copies of her CD and magazine cover. After an AH-mazing lunch, guests got their groove on, made silly faces in the photo booth, and then joined in singing Happy Wish Day to Taylor. Perfect ending to a perfect celebration!

In addition to the staff at Make-A-Wish who work tirelessly for these very deserving children every day, and all of the vendors who volunteered their time and services to make this day complete, Taylor had two very special people who made it all possible. Wish granters are incredibly generous, kind people with a huge heart who do what it takes to make a child’s wish come true. I caught Taylor’s wish granters absolutely beaming several times during her party, their hearts must have been so full knowing what a difference they made in the life of this little girl!

Ok, so you know what they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. So let’s get on to the photos! Keep on scrolling for a quick little highlight reel with some behind the scenes video, followed by some of my favorite captures of the day.

One perfect evening this past November, over 200 of the most giving, compassionate people in Orange County came together to celebrate the good work of, and raise money for, Make-A-Wish® Orange County and the Inland Empire.  The annual Evening of Wishes gala benefits Make-A-Wish® Orange County and the Inland Empire which grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions in Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties. This year the gala raised an astounding $240,000!

Guests kicked off the evening under the stars on the patio of the always beautiful Balboa Bay Club in Newport Beach, bidding at the silent auction, enjoying delicious goodies and drinks, hamming it up in the photo booth courtesy of Photoboothless, and delighting in impressive entertainment provided by the very talented Danny Magic. The real party began when guests were escorted into the Grand Ballroom for a dinner of Seared Filet Mignon and Crab Crusted Barramundi. Shortly after dinner was served by the amazing staff at the Balboa Bay Resort, the evening’s program began with presentations of gratitude to three incredible sponsors of Make-A-Wish® Orange County and the Inland Empire, Mackenzie Corporation, Disneyland Resort, and presenting sponsor Jones Lang LaSalle. Guests also battled over some fabulous getaways including Hawaii, Telluride and the Magic Castle during the live auction, and danced the night away to the soulful tunes of Haute Chili. Black Starr & Frost was on hand with a dazzling raffle prize for one very lucky guest. The highlight of the evening, however, was seeing every guest in the ballroom take part in a surprise wish reveal for wish kid Francheska, who wished to go to Disney’s Aulani Resort & Spa in Hawaii. During the reveal, the lively hula troupe, Lokelani’s Rhythm of the Islands, delighted the audience with authentic Hawaiian dancing. The entire evening was inspiring and humbling, and I am so grateful to have been just a small part of it!

Since 1983, Make-A-Wish® Orange County and the Inland Empire has granted more than 5000 wishes to seriously ill children. To get involved, attend next year’s gala, or to refer a child, head on over to www.ocie.wish.org.

Michael & Anna are just too sweet. Spend 5 minutes with them and you will see they are just smitten with each other! I had such a blast running around Newport Dunes Waterfront Resort one Saturday in October to document their engagement celebration with friends and family. We had the most perfect Orange County golden hour sunset which just wrapped them in warm beautiful light, and they were great sports to keep up with me! I have to also give big props to the staff at Newport Dunes, especially Sarah. We got the VIP treatment as she chauffeured us around the resort in a golf cart to hit the best photo spots! After we grabbed some amazing shots of the happy twosome, they partied the night away with a taco bar, s’mores and lawn games with their closest friends and family!

One evening in July, more than 100 family and friends came together at the Doubletree Irvine Spectrum to celebrate a very special milestone. And this group knows how to throw a FABULOUS anniversary party! Carlos and Leticia celebrated 70 years of marriage surrounded by those most important to them, treated to some very touching surprises. Two close friends offered toasts and blessings to the couple, they were serenaded by a special song and a poem written just for their special day, a slideshow of some of the beautiful moments in their lives, all capped off by an amazing Columbian orchestra that played the night away.

Special touches by Gem Sweets were everywhere, from an incredible dessert table, to the gorgeous centerpieces. The Gatsby theme was just perfect for the evening! During cocktail hour, guests were treated to a photo booth where they could ham it up with some cute props and a beautiful black petal drop backdrop. To celebrate the happy couple, guests were asked to write handwritten notes of congratulations and love, and hang them on a special tree which was presented to Carlos and Leticia.

It was such a treat to witness the love and the fun in the ballroom that night. Carlos and Leticia still act like newlyweds after 70 years of marriage, and they are just the sweetest couple. You can tell that they are extremely well loved and appreciated by their family and friends and have made an impact on many lives. I left that night inspired, exhausted, and with a huge smile on my face. Thank you Audrey, Carlos and Leticia, for allowing me to photograph your special evening and provide you with new memories to enjoy for many years to come!

Aloha! Fire was flying and cool drinks flowing at Newport Harbor Yacht Club’s 2014 Skipper’s Luau. The yacht club’s main dining room and outdoor patio made the perfect intimate setting, rich in history and set against a beautiful sunset.

As guests arrived they were treated to a traditional lei greeting, and then packed the club’s patio for cocktail hour on a picture perfect Southern California evening. Guest nibbled on yummy passed appetizers and signature Mai-tai’s, to celebrate the club’s opening day festivities.

Just before dinner, the team from Island Inspirations really warmed things up with their polynesian dancers and impressive fire dancing performance. Their authentic costumes and big smiles set the tone for a very fun evening. After a delicious dinner complete with fresh handmade tortillas grilled right on site, guests danced the night away to the tunes of the Citrus College Night Shift Band, an amazing live band ensemble. And of course, what party is complete without a photo booth, complete with fun props!
