Malibu beach house shoot

The beach is one of my favorite places to do shoots. This shoot was done at a home in Malibu while the family was on vacation and it was the perfect location. We had the beach style home to use as well as the actual beach which provided lots of great locations. We had perfect weather, happy kids and a wonderful location making this one of my favorite family shoots to date. I had such a hard narrowing down my selects but here they are!

Sisters!

I have watched these girls grow up in front of my camera over the years which is such a cool part of my job. Riley, the oldest was in baby group with my daughter and I have known and photographed her since she was just a few months old. Now she has a little sister and partner in crime, Moira. These two were absolutely adorable together. We did their shoot at their home and I love the pictures we took. Here are some highlights from our shoot:

Paige Lauren fashion kids clothing

Last year I was approached to photograph Paige Lauren Baby clothing, a unique baby clothing line that is based in Los Angeles. It was such an honor to be selected and the images are some of my favorite to date. If you have not heard of this company, you MUST check it out. The clothes are so soft and the color palate is amazing. Here are some photos from the Desert Collection.

Finally back to blogging!

I used to be so good about blogging but since going back to work almost 9 months ago I have not been able to carve out the time to post. So I will try to catch up on all the shoots I have done. The first post was my first shoot when I went back to work last summer. Everything about the shoot was wonderful from the family to their stunning home, the lighting and of course the photos turned out just as I had hoped. Here are some photos that I absolutely adore!

sweet little sister.

Meridith was a beautiful baby girl I photographed with her big brother at our newborn baby session. Mom had some adorable hats that we used for the photos and we did a variety of sleep and awake shots in their home. Big brother Luke was 18 months old and had a great smile. We did a handful of photos of the two together and they came out great! Here are some photos from our shoot:

A fun October Outing

So many of my friends have been posting photos from pumpkin patches with their darling kids. My family decided to check out Mr. Bones Pumpkin Patch in West Hollywood and we had a blast. With pony rides, a petting zoo, face painting, bounce house, slide, pumpkins and more, there were tons of things for young kids to do. My daughter Jaelyn had a blast it was a fun and easy place to go. There was even a celebrity sighting accompanied by a full paparazzi zone (only in LA….) If you have a couple hours free and haven’t hit up a pumpkin patch yet, this is a really great spot.

birthday boy!

Leo the Lion was almost one year old at our cake smash photo shoot. I photographed him first as a newborn and then at 3 months old. This time he came to my studio with a darling cake and some #1 cookies. Well, he wasn’t too crazy about the cake but he LOVED the cookies which also made for some adorable shots. Happy birthday Leo, you were such a pleasure to photograph again!

Life is better at the beach.

With just over 3 weeks to go in my pregnancy, I have finally finished baby Griffin’s beach themed nursery. Since our family loves everything about the beach, it seemed fitting to bring the beach to our home. It was a lot of fun getting creative with the decor and I hope he will love it as much as I do! The beach ball mobile was made by my sister and it adds a colorful touch to the room! Now it is time to wait for baby #2 to arrive!
