I recently met a family at their home for a family photo session. We did a few pictures at their place then took a little walk to a nearby place they love to hang as a family. It was a new location for me which made it really fun to visit. As a family they go there to run around, walk the dog and spend time. A location that is special to a family makes the photos even more personal and unique. I loved what we captured, here are a few faves:
I love meeting new families and getting to see the interactions and family dynamics. This beautiful bunch had welcomed a baby girl to their family and they were kind, patient and had such a loving & playful nature. I really enjoyed our session together and the raw emotion that we captured. Here are some photos I love from our session!
It was a beautiful afternoon when we captured the love and sweet moments of this gorgeous family in this beautiful setting. Holmby Park is a go-to location for me as it is central to many of the families I work with and has such a nice variety of greenery and “looks”. The addition of the skateboards was a great and personal touch. There were many sweet moments with the boys and the family, a mix of candids and portraits. Here are my selects from our most recent mini session!
I have been working with an amazing baby clothing line called Paige Lauren Baby for the last few years and always look forward to our sessions. Paige is extremely creative with her collection concepts, which always makes for adorable campaign photos. Our most recent shoot was her layette collection, clothing intended for infants. The clothes are soft, adorable and the company is based in Los Angeles. Paige is a mom herself and totally gets the needs and desires of moms and babies. Check out their adorable baby clothes!
It is fun to step in to a family’s home and capture photos in a place that is a new creative canvas for me. This family had recently moved into a new home and wanted to capture some sweet new photos. We started with a more dressed up series of images and then took a more intimate and playful approach with a pajama party filled with laughs. I loved showcasing both sides and adore the pictures we took!
If you live in LA, you have to check out Sweet E’s Bake Shop: sweetesbakeshop.com. They make the most beautiful cakes and desserts for all occasions! I have had the pleasure of photographing Erica and her family several times now and she always has the BEST ideas for creative content. So when she was in need of new promotional photos, I jumped at the opportunity! I really love the light and bright quality to these images and the pops of pinks and blues. And look how gorgeous those cakes are!! These photos were captured for her website and instagram page: https://www.instagram.com/sweetesbakeshop/ I am in love with these photos and am so excited to show them off!
I love the color choices made by this family for their holiday mini session. It was colorful and so well coordinated and a combo I hadn’t seen before! We did the session at Temescal Gateway Park in Pacific Palisades on my 30 minute holiday mini session day and we captured lots of fun photos of this beautiful bunch. Here are my favorites from this session:
A few weeks ago I photographed a family who was welcoming a newborn baby girl into their family. We started the session with big brother who was thrilled to have a baby sister. He was so gentle and sweet with her, it was precious to watch and document. Mom wanted to capture their family in a way that felt natural and less staged, so we did a series of them all in their bed as they interacted as a new family of four. For the newborn solo shots, they had a bunch of floral props which were perfect for a spring newborn session and made for some beautiful photographs. I just love the color palate throughout this series of images! So many special photos were captured, here are my favorites from this amazing newborn photo session:
I really love when families book beach sessions. While there can be challenges at the beach such as wind-blown hair and sand in everything, there is really something magical about taking pictures with such a beautiful and simple environment. The photos are light and bright, the colors are subtle and it serves as a blank canvas for whatever you want to do! This family chose to wear denim and white and I always love how this looks. Clean and modern, simply beautiful. We started at their home and ended on the beach and it was a really great day.
I photographed this family during one of my 30 minute holiday mini sessions at a park in Beverly Hills. We have been friends since college but I hadn’t seen them for awhile and had not had the pleasure of getting to know their kids until this fun photo shoot. They were kind and sweet, playful and so easy to photograph. I loved getting to capture their love and energy. Here are my favorites from our session together:
