Sandy Heit Photography [+ $500 Giveaway!]

see more by

As moms, is there anything you love more than a fabulous photo of your children or family? You know the ones that make you smile from the inside out because it is just so them?

I know I do! That’s why I am thrilled to share Sandy Heit Photography with you today. Sandy is an OC children and family photographer with a gift for capturing those exact moments. She recently took some newborn photos of my new nephew, Gavin. They made me tear up they were so beautiful! Keep reading to see them below! Proud Auntie had to share!!

Sandy is offering a $500 gift certificate giveaway to one of our lucky readers < – WHAT?! So make sure to read this post in its entirety because I don’t want to you to miss out on this giveaway!!

Sandy specializes in modern lifestyle portraiture of babies, children and families. With a fresh and vibrant approach to photography, she aims to makes a connection with each of her subjects to make sure she captures natural expressions, whether the belly laugh of a toddler or soulful glance of love between parent and child.

Although her sessions typically last between 1 1/2 – 2 hours, she has no time limit and will stay as long as needed to get the shots. This is especially important with newborns who, as we know, do not work around anyone’s schedule but their own!

With a tremendous amount of patience, she invests the time needed to devote to your photo session, even allowing for two or three clothing changes if desired.

At the end of the session, she loves to provide her clients with a great variety of photographs to chose from, so she will make sure to get in special photographs with mom and dad alone with the children along with the individual and family shots.

Moms – how often do you look at your photographs and realize that you are not in ANY of them?! Happens to me all of the time.

She also loves presenting her clients with unique ideas for the photo session. Sandy shared with me a fun option she has been sharing with her clients who want to do their photo shoot at the beach.

After getting all the beautiful beach shots with everyone all gussied up, she suggests throwing in the kid’s swimsuits and sand toys so they can play for awhile after the photo session is done.

Allowing Sandy to capture moments like this…

My sister absolutely loved working with Sandy, and especially loved the fact she didn’t feel stressed during the shoot. She said Sandy made everyone feel so comfortable and was so patient and wonderful ~ often reiterating there was no rush. She told me Sandy was great with her three-year-old and was so sweet when she had to stop and nurse baby.  Never making her feel like they were on a clock.

So, please let me share my nephew, the cutest little love bug you have EVER seen, and handsome older brother A.J….

Ivy Gate Farm for OC Horse Riding Lessons + Training Programs

see more by

One of the things I love about my job is the fact that I get to learn about new things all the time.  Before this article, I didn’t know one thing about the equestrian world in OC, so when Ivy Gate Farm inquired about becoming a sponsor on Tiny Oranges, I thought what a unique place to be able to share with my readers!

I don’t know about you, but if my child exhibited an interest in horses and I wanted to sign her up for horse riding lessons, I wouldn’t know where to go.

That’s why I am very excited to introduce you to the fabulous Ivy Gate Farm nestled in the foothills of San Juan Capistrano, a family-oriented boutique farm offering riding lessons and training for those with a passion for horses.

I had the opportunity to visit in person last week and I was really looking forward to it because I had never been to a horse stable before.

What The Go-To Mom Has Taught Me About Kids and Sharing

see more by

I am a huge fan of parenting books because as a mom I really can use all the help I can get! With each one I have read, I have taken away different gems of advice or different ways of looking at things that have been helpful at challenging times. One of these gems was something I learned while reading The Go-To Mom’s Parents’ Guide to Emotion Coaching Young Children. And it had to do with kids and sharing.  What I learned from Kimberley has been so incredibly effective with my toddler (and even my five-year-old) that I felt compelled to share it with you!
