Orange County Family Photography

Christopher Todd Studios is one of Orange County’s top family photographers. Our studio is located in the heart of the OC. What sets us apart from other photography studios is our style of shooting, the professional guidance we provide all clients before during and after a portrait session, and our expertise in natural light and studio lighting. When you choose Christopher Todd as your photographer you are also choosing a wonderful experience. We invite you to come to our studio to see all the products we offer. This will help you visualize what you want for your home. Whether you are looking for the best album to display on your coffee table or you want the perfect custom printed and framed portrait to have in your living room.

How to prepare for your session

  • Decide on a date and time. Ask your photographer the best time of day to have photos taken if your session is outdoors.
  • Choose a style. Your family can dress casual or formal. Just make sure all family members know the look you decide on.  We can help you with a style guide for your outfits so you look and feel your best.
  • Studio or outdoor location. Studio portraits are beautiful and timeless. Outdoor photos are also beautiful and capture your family’s style.

How often should you have family portraits taken?

In an ideal world, annual photos are the best way to document your growing family.  However, we know how busy life gets. So with that said we are ready when you are.

When you decide on your outfits it is best to have colors that work great together. I love how the littlest one is in a patterned dress.

Planning your session around a milestone is an easy way to get family portraits and your 6-month or 1-year photos at the same time.

Puerto Vallarta Portrait

So just playing with some old images and new techniques.  These are film sims of the Beautiful Kodak Portra 800 asa.  Ilana’s going to kill me;-)  These images are from 2006 the day after a very long and sweaty wedding in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.  I totally forgot about these images.  So happy to they have come back to me.

Gideon’s Art

I completely realize that brides probably won’t get this…but thats okay. My oldest son Gideon (4.5 years old) just dropped his latest creation

and I quote “SPACE ALIEN MONKEYS” on me today. It totally brings me back to exploring art and creativity when I was little… and how great theses things really are.

Cheers to you all!

Kids Halloween Portraits in Seal Beach

Just a few great shots of my kids Gideon and Graham at the Pumpkin Patch last week.  Halloween portraits are a yearly thing in my family, and this year was no different.  The boys had a blast after having dad bug them for pictures;-)

Big Sur Trip Photography with my family

I know everyone is biased, but I think my boys are cute! We had a week to get dirty up in Big Sur, California. Five days of camping in our popup with Ilana’s Brother and his family. It was an amazing trip. Can’t believe I waited 35 years to visit Big Sur for the first time. Monterrey was also a blast! The kids were going nuts for candy and treats on the old fisherman’s wharf in downtown Monterrey. Next year I’d love to visit a few days later to catch the annual Exotic car show. Our trip home along PCH was so beautiful. Every other car was a Ferrari or Vintage Porsche was flying around the cliffs towards Monterrey. Can’t wait to get back up here!

A Paddleout Memorial


Had the privilege to photograph a memorial paddle out for my friend RC.  His cousin and father Phil passed away after a long battles with cancer earlier this year.  It was a great seeing so many friends and family come to show support.  This was the first memorial I’d attended since spreading my own fathers ashes in the ocean a year ago, and I have to say it was tough.  My condolences go out to the Middleton family.

Family portraits in Long Beach at the Concert in the Park

Gideon getting ready with a snack!

There are many things I miss about Long Beach. One of the Biggies is the Concert in the park. Ilana and I stumbled upon this Long Beach gem by accident in 2005. We heard some super loud music early one summer evening and decided to follow it! Ah, pre-child spontaneity at it’s best! The minute we approached and saw thousands of people picnicking in front of the Long Beach Municipal Bands tunes, we were hooked. Evidently this band has been playing free concerts in the park for 101 years in Long Beach. During the summer they play a different park every night. Our Favorite is at the Marine stadium. It’s set right on the water in a giant grassy field, and the sun setting in the background. Imagine 2000 people from 1 to 100 years old chilling with their drinks, picnic baskets, wine, kids, dogs. It’s a total family party atmosphere! If your interested in coming out, the concerts run every thursday night at 6:00 from about the 4th of july through august. It’s best to show up earlier in the day with your blankets to get a good spot.

 

 

Los Angeles Kids Photographer – Azad Family Birthday

[like url=http://iiphoto.net/blog/?p=1627 action=like]
Back again with another double birthday party for the Azad Girls! The kids were going crazy running around the party! The Bounce House, glitter tattoo, puppet show or arts and crafts, had all the children super-charged for the Azad girls birthday party. Children’s photography is always fun and challenging at the same time. I had a great time shooting photojournalistic candid shots of the children as they played and romped around the different activities. The brief moments when the kids stopped moving led to some children’s portraits that were also amazing. Looking forward to making some more great kids portraits in the future.

Orange County Portraits – Beach Bike Birds

[like url=http://iiphoto.net/blog/?p=1570 action=like]

Had a blast spending a Daddy Day with my youngest son Graham. Jackets and Mittens, and a bike to the beach. We managed to get beautiful weather 2-3 hours before yesterdays storm. Graham was beach combing for sticks, and treasures. I was having a great time making a few photographs of anything we found interesting. The entire experience just reminded me, this is a great time of year with all this dramatic weather to go out with the family for an excursion and have it documented by a professional. I can’t wait to pull this mini session out of the archives in 20 years and share these images with Graham. Be sure to shoot me an email if you have any great ideas.

Enjoy the images

Have a great Week!
