Belle Marie Art and Photography


Hello there, I am a Huntington Beach, California Child Photographer and I love what I do. I specialize in newborns, children and seniors. I have been in business since May 2011 and moved to Huntington Beach, CA about two years ago. I started out like most photographers, photographing anything and everything that would let me take their picture. I worked with a few newborns and seniors starting out and I just knew that this was what I wanted to do forever.

I did this session for my best friend so she would have beautiful photos of her three adorable girls. The only child that wanted to participate in photos was her eldest daughter Shiloh, she was the best helping keep her baby sister wrangled and always had a smile on her face. She is usually the hardest child to wrangle because she is such a free spirit and only wants to do what she wants to do so I was very weary of how the session would go, and Rylee is usually the one that always listens. It was a funny change of scene because they totally switched from what I thought was going to happen. Rylee was just way to interested in everything else and wanted to go explore in every direction. She wanted to go everywhere and climb on everything but that is just what happens when you are dealing with a three year old. And Cali really hated the grass so she was not happy about the situation from the start. Truly one of my favorite child sessions, wrangling 3 girls under the age of 4 can be difficult but I had so much fun running around the park with them, and I got to hang out with my best friend.

I had the idea to have all of the girls in chambray type clothes that complimented each other with pops of white since I knew we would be photographing in a park with a lot of green grass, trees, and shrubs. So we needed something to compliment the green and make them pop, and look angelic like the little angels they are! You always have to think about the surroundings of where you are photographing and what colors will compliment that and not clash with the surroundings or take the focus away from your subject. I always like to stay to plain colors, or light patterns like in the girls shirts with little stripes that add texture but do not distract from the photo. shiloh-rylee-cali-02 shiloh-rylee-cali-03 Shiloh-rylee-cali-low-w-22 Shiloh-rylee-cali-low-w-28 shiloh-rylee-cali-04

I truly love working with children they are so spunky and you never know what they are going to do. I am even going to school to become a preschool teacher. Being a photographer has shown me another love and that is children and brought me into wanting to be a teacher. I cannot see my self doing anything else but working with children. shiloh-rylee-cali-05 Shiloh-rylee-cali-low-w-37 shiloh-rylee-cali-06 Shiloh-rylee-cali-low-w-40 Shiloh-rylee-cali-low-w-42 Shiloh-rylee-cali-low-w-44 Shiloh-rylee-cali-low-w-46
