Hey, I'm Christopher Todd An Orange County Family Photographer

The walls in my home are covered with family portraits. Seeing those memories forces me to stop and take a moment to reflect on how special my family is to me, and how truly lucky we all are. 

The photos could be from a family adventure or portraits at the local park.  Doesn't matter.  They just make me feel good. 

It's that feeling of happiness that I strive to create for every family I photograph.  So when you sit down in your favorite chair you can gaze upon a past moment in time that brings you a smile.

As an Orange County photographer, I'm grateful to have had the opportunity to merge my passion and career.

ORANGE COUNTY FAMILY PORTRAIT LOCATIONS

Choosing a location for your session can be overwhelming. I can help you pick just the right spot for your family photos. We love taking families to open nature reserves, local beaches, parks, and even right in your own home.

Some locations have parking restrictions or require a permit such as Laguna City beaches, The Anti Mall in Costa Mesa, or Segerstrom Hall.

When you hire Christopher Todd Studios you get more than just a portrait session. We help you with all the logistics from where to go to what to wear, and even how to pose.

Orange County has many great beaches and state parks. Central Park in Huntington Beach is one of my favorite spots.
Upscale or architectural backdrops in the OC are perfect for unique portraits.
Sessions can also be in a studio. This is a great way to get professional photos that are perfectly refined and stand the test of time.

WHY SHOULD I GET MY FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHED?

As a father, I know all too well how quickly time goes by. Kids grow up so fast. I want to help you preserve those precious faces in your life. My goal is to make you and your family look and feel great. I photograph families and children in an Orange County studio or at a location of your choice.

In Orange County, we have the world at our fingertips. Beaches, mountains, natural parks, and funky eclectic locations to create beautiful portraits all within a short distance of each other.

Portraiture is my favorite type of photography because of the happiness it brings to my clients. Whether you prefer a traditional style or like a more candid look. I can help you plan an amazing session.

It is important to consider your goal from the session, such as a giant canvas over your mantle, or some prints for a hallway. Defining what you want from the beginning allows me to meet your expectations. Together we will create a plan for your portrait session that fits your needs.

STYLES OF FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY

Candid Style Portraits

Candid session (unposed) also referred to as a lifestyle session. Think of real moments. We focus on capturing personality, connections, and relationships. We have lots of suggestions for activities that will photograph well.
I capture moments of the family interacting with each other, laughing smiling, playing, walking, holding hands, catching bubbles, chasing butterflies, etc. Each session is unique and we take what is in the environment and incorporate that into the session.

Traditional Style Portraits

The traditional family portrait style starts with everyone in the photo looking at the camera.

The setting can be indoor or outside, and the lighting is generally flattering.  Most families want a blend of traditional and candid photos at a family portrait session.
