When Dawn called me and told me her idea of of doing a shoot with her kids in their normal, daily lives at home as a way to capture memories before selling their current house, I immediately loved the idea. I really liked the spontaneity of it… from driving around in the flashy cadillac, to picking veggies in the garden, and everything in between. They were such an adorable pair, brother and sister Brant and Genna, and as a whole make such a fun, loving family.
I had such a blast photographing this engagement shoot. When Connie told me about her ideas for locations around Los Angeles, ideas instantly started flowing through my head. We hit a couple spots in downtown LA, including the Disney Concert Hall and the LA dept of Water and power, and the beach and pier in Santa Monica.
Both LA-based lawyers, they have their professional sides, but definitely know how to have fun and enjoy themselves. It was a blast working with them, and I can’t wait to photograph their upcoming Santa Barbara wedding!
I was honored to photograph this lovely lady’s maternity shoot last year, and now her baby is already a precious one year old. I love seeing the progression of families; definitely one of my favorite parts of what I do! Ian had just began walking not too long before the shoot, so capturing his steps was also an awesome moment for me and for his parents as well.
Such a cute family! This is my second year taking their portraits, and it’s awesome to see how the kids have grown. Had a great day, full of perfect weather, an amazing location out on Vandenberg Air Force Base, and even saw some whales. Xx
I recently spent a weekend with one of my old friends from middle school and her husband in San Francisco, and we decided it was the perfect time to do a shoot. They are already married, and recently had an anniversary so it was a perfect opportunity. They are such an amazing couple, and are a blast to be around. Also, this was my first shoot I’ve done in my favorite city, so I’m really excited about that as well.
We could not have gotten any luckier with the perfect weather we got on this day. A heat wave in October.. Only in California! We had a blast during the shoot, and the photos came out absolutely gorgeous. She was a brave girl and even got herself in the cold water as the sun was setting, but it was well worth it for the beautiful shots we got.
Watching him grow up has been amazing, not to mention how quickly it is happening! Seems like not so long ago I was trying to make him giggle as a newborn, (realizing he wasn’t able to smile yet, but trying anyways.) He is growing up a sweet, smart, and fun boy and am looking forward to seeing all his stages in life.
