The Gardner Family | Newport Beach, California

I met Heather and Steve through work before their life with little ones. I watched as their family grew from two, to three, and now four. I was invited into their quaint, blue two story home nestled between Newport Beach and Costa Mesa to capture the essence of daily life with their family.

Their newest addition Gavin ran the show, but his big brother Matthew was sure to give him a run for his money. As Gavin snuggled up in mommy’s arms, Matthew and daddy cruised around the street in his shades that were sure to match his little blue car.

Capturing life’s little moments with the Gardner family absolutely filled my heart with joy. These are the moments that I truly treasure most, raw, real life. There was screaming, and crying, and begging for more of grandma’s cookies. That’s life with littles. We embrace and cherish the crazy things our children say and do and hope to laugh a little during the chaos.
