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.

In case you missed the news, Jeff and I had a baby!  Our little Hudson is finally here and we are so proud to be his Mommy and Daddy.  Hudson was born on Tuesday, April 2, 2013 at 7:35pm.  He was 6 lbs. 14oz and a very healthy little boy.  For many years, we have been photographing our clients newborn moments as they celebrate their new little one.  Having our son has been an incredible experience and the time really does fly by fast.  We took these photos when he was 12 days old and it made me realize he is only this size once.  Children truly do grow up so fast.  I have always heard that, but now it is happening right before our eyes.  I will treasure these beautiful memories of our son’s first portrait Forever!!!!

Meet Hudson William!


Love the sock monkey hat my friend Carol crocheted for Hudson to wear!

Our nursery is sock monkey theme, so we had to get a shot of him in this!

I love little baby feet!

Mommy’s smiley little monkey!

Congratulations to Ricky and Kristi on their new son Baby Caden.  It is hard to believe that it has been over two years since we did their first son Logan’s newborn portrait and now Caden is here too.  Boy how time flies by!  I love to watch our families grow and it is an honor to go back and photograph the next stage in their lives.  Thanks guys for sharing your new little one with us.  We loved meeting him and documenting these first moments of your newborn.  They get big so fast, but you will have these memories for a lifetime. Here is little Caden at only 9 days old!  Congrats+Love, J+D

I love the little baby details, they are so precious!

Such an alert little guy.  Here he is still sporting his umbilical cord!

The little newborn resting on mommy’s shoulder!

Such a precious family moment with their newborn son!

Even though Caden was only 9 days old here, he could move those feet.  Luckily, I was quick enough to get his feet in the V-shape and not moving to capture this moment.  LOVE!!!!

Hope everyone is having a great Friday.  We are out in Arizona shooting a few family portraits as well as visiting with my family.  Tomorrow we will also be celebrating a family moment for the engagement of my little sister Cindy.  Her and her fiance Greg will be having their wedding in March 2012, so excited for them!

We recently shared another fabulous moment with our friends Kylee and Franjo as they just welcomed there new little one Bradley Chase to the world on Sept. 20th.  We had the opportunity to photograph Bradley at 2 weeks old and wanted to share a few of his newborn baby photos.  A big congratulations to Kylee and Franjo on their new addition to the family.  We look forward to watching Bradley grow! 🙂

Well here it is folks the 2011 Holiday Portrait Special by Sipper Photography!  Celebrate your family this holiday season by scheduling a family portrait with us.  Photos make a great gift for your loved ones and the best part is you won’t have to go to the mall for this one!  (The guys will love this) You can also use your favorite photo from the session for a holiday card this year.

Our style is very different which makes this a unique gift and memory for your family.  We specialize in an environmental portrait.  What is that you ask?  Well, here is how it works.  You pick the location, this should be something fun.  The beach, park, your local downtown, urban area or your own home.  All are great locations.  It can also be a special family spot… don’t be afraid to think outside of the box.  You can wear holiday clothing colors (even fancy holiday sweaters if you choose) or just something nice if you haven’t had a portrait together in a while.

Remember it doesn’t have to just be families, you can do a holiday session even if it is just the two of you or to celebrate an engagement!  Also, if you want to give a gift of a portrait to someone, we offer gift certificates for Family, Boudoir, Maternity and Newborn sessions.  Weekends are available, but always fill up fast, so schedule today!

To get some ideas for your family portrait this year, visit our gallery . We hope to see you this holiday season!

Cheers, J+D

Hi all!  Hope you had a great Labor Day holiday weekend.  We sure did.  It is amazing how much stuff you can pack into one weekend.  My sister Gloria and her boyfriend Jeremiah were visiting from Arizona.  On Saturday we watched the Penn State Football game at the OC Sports Grill because Sister G and I had to represent with our fellow PSU Alumni. We then did a little beer tasting at the Old Orange Brewing Company in Orange and continued on to a BBQ with friends. We finished off Saturday night with a little jazz music at the OC Great Park where the Preservation Hall Jazz Band was playing a concert.  We had seen them before in New Orleans.  I can’t get enough of a little “Bourbon Street Parade”!  I love that song!  On Sunday, we headed down to Balboa and walked around the pier and the fun zone.  It was another great day!

Hmmm…I just realized why I was so tired yesterday and just relaxed! It was a great weekend, but went by so fast.  I know it is always hard to get back in to the swing of things after a long weekend, but here we are!

So speaking of visiting with family.  We recently spent some time in San Diego with Jeff’s cousin Paul, his wife Polly and their daughter Ellie.  They have a new addition to their family and we were excited to meet him and take his newborn photos.  We just received his birth announcement in the mail and it turned out great, thanks guys!  Congratulations to all of you and today, Meet Brady Thomas!






Ellie is such a great Big Sister!


Love this shot of Ellie’s Hand holding her little brother’s finger!
