Photographing precious newborn babies is such fun for so many reasons. As a mom, I am no longer in the “baby phase” of life and I miss those tiny little humans. I get my fix each and every time I get to photograph a newborn. I also absolutely love watching parents in the early stages of parenthood. There is such a newness, a love that is so rich and full- and I get to capture it for them. This sweet baby girl was perfectly sleepy throughout her session with me. I love the pictures we took and had such a great time documenting the love in this home.
Travel Town Kid
Travel town is a cool old location that has been around for ages and is a perfect shoot location for young kids and toddlers. This little one loved exploring the trains and was completely in his element. Choosing a location that kids can be comfortable and themselves is a great way to capture their true personality. Here are some photos we took at this amazing location!
These gorgeous sisters were so much fun to capture at our last photo shoot. They were playful and energetic and had a love and bond that was magical to watch. We did the shoot at their home and the girls started out with portraits and ended with play. Although this was a mini shoot, there were tons of photos I loved and editing down was a challenge! Here are my favorite shots of these sweet sisters:
So happy together….
Over the last couple years I have had the pleasure of getting to know this beautiful mom and her sweet little girl and boy. When I was asked to photograph them I was flattered and excited! We did the shoot at La Brea Tar Pits/LACMA which always has so many wonderful location options. It is great for kids so we can keep moving around and they don’t get bored. I adore the photos we took and these are some of my favorites from the shoot:
I have known these darling boys for some time now and had the pleasure of photographing them last fall for their holiday card. Well, I was thrilled to take pictures again when they welcomed their newborn baby brother to the family. The big brothers were so sweet with baby Greyson, and they did an amazing job being photographed. I love the photos we took and adore these sweet boys!

Brothers, Balloons & Bubbles
With a first birthday around the corner, we took photos of this loving family before the birthday celebration. We held the session at their home and the boys were sweet and silly with loads of smiles. I always love when bubbles and balloons are used as props because they are so fascinating to the little ones and make for some really sweet expressions. Here are my favorite photos from the shoot:
showing baby bro the ropes
I am so lucky to have gotten to know this incredible family over the years. This was our shoot #4 and this time they had a new family member! Big brother was great with his little bro and as always, I had the best time catching up with the parents and photographing this warm family. Here are photos of this family of four:
This was my third shoot with this amazing family. The first shoot was when their precious little girl was just a baby, the second shoot was done when they were building their new home and this shoot was in their new home! It is so cool to photograph families over time and watch the children grow before my eyes. This time the kids were so grown up, enthusiastic and energetic. It was wonderful to see how they have matured yet still had the sweet innocence that only a child can have. All-in-all it was a wonderful shoot. Here they are:
