Happy Holidays to you and yours. It’s that time of the year when we are sharing such wonderful family moments with our clients during our Holiday Family Portrait season.  Some of our families shoot with me every year so that they can put together a holiday card of photos.  Others shoot just to have a nice family portrait as their children are growing up and changing year to year. It’s amazing to me to have watched some children grow up through my camera lens.  I love being a part of their lives and documenting each moment.

Today I wanted to feature the wonderful Rebecca Calagna and her family.  Rebecca is a Wedding & Event Planner here in the Orange County area.  I have had the pleasure of shooting with Rebecca and her family for several years in a row now.  She is a pleasure to work with both personally and professionally.   If you are getting engaged this holiday season, please check her out for all of your wedding planning needs in 2017!  You can find her at Rebecca Calagna Wedding & Event Planner

We had so much fun with this Christmas Tree Farm holiday family portrait.  So excited to share these photos with you!

I love these action shots of the family blowing snowflakes up in to the air!!! Such great family fun!

It’s a new school year and you’re a Senior in High School.  Don’t forget to make some memories as this is your final year of high school.  Everyone has to get their traditional yearbook photo, but why not do some other fun shots that really show off your personality.  Here is a senior portrait of Jessica that we shot in Laguna Beach to celebrate her Senior High School graduation.  We did several shots of Jessica by herself then we also celebrated with her family with a few portraits of the group.  This is such an important time to document and celebrate your accomplishment.

Here is Jessica and her family!  Congrats on a new year to all of the 2015 graduating classes in Orange County, CA and beyond.




Whether it’s your senior year in High School or College, graduation is a time of fun we must cherish.  Sipper Photography can photograph your senior portrait or even shoot your graduation party or events throughout the year.  We would love to celebrate with you and your family.  Please call us at 714.348.0630 or email us at: for further info.

Recently, I shot this family portrait with Rebecca of Rebecca Calagna Events .  I loved the idea of using her dad’s vintage truck for the shoot.  It came out so awesome!!!

Rebecca is an event and wedding planner that specializes in event planning as well as day of coordination for your wedding or event.   Her team also designs custom invitations, menu cards, seating cards, table cards and wedding ceremony programs.  She does some amazing designs and I am so glad that I have had the pleasure to work with her.  Here are some photos from her family portrait.

Enjoy the photos!

Here is a fun shoot.  We got to spend some time with this family and do a Baby Gender Reveal photo shoot as they are expecting their 4th child.  I met up with Jessica, our momma-to-be on the day she received the gender ultrasound from her doctor.  It was sealed in an envelope and handed off to me, so I could plan the shoot.  Gosh, I was trusted to be the only one to know if the baby was a boy or a girl.  What an honor!

For the shoot, I filled a box with balloons to represent the gender of the baby.  The family opened the box as I captured their reaction as the pink balloons floated out of the box and up into the sky.  “It’s a Girl”!!!!  The location for the shoot was in the front yard of the family’s new home here in Orange County which made for a perfect back drop.  New Baby, New Crib.  🙂


A shot of the family before they open the box up which will reveal with balloons the gender of the newest addition to the family.

As they open the box, the pink balloons sail out.  It’s a girl!

A shot of the balloons as they fly away!

The 2 girls hold the “It’s a girl” banner.  They are excited to have another sister!

Jessica, the proud momma!

New Baby, New Crib!

This shot of the baby gender ultrasound in the mailbox is a great idea for a new home or change of address announcement!
As we all know these little ones take up a lot of space, so sometimes it is time to move up when we are expecting or the family is growing.
