Puppy love

I photographed this Manhattan Beach couple to capture their love for one another and for their newest family member, their puppy Winnie. She was so sweet with the softest puppy fur and oversized paws. The couple is engaged and wanted to capture engagement photos and also wanted to do a thank you photo for their wedding “thank you’s”. They also wanted to take pics of their adorable puppy. It was Winnie’s first time in sand and it was so fun to watch her explore this new turf. Such a fun day!

Jump, slam dunk and smile

This was my second shoot with this loving family (here was the first). We started the shoot at their gorgeous home. The boys each took a turn posing in their rooms which lead to taking turns slam dunking the bunk bed hoop (a first for me!) I love the energy and love that these boys shared. Some of my favorite photos are the action shots we captured. We ended at the park in the park throwing leaves and then after I said goodbye the boys played on the basketball court. Such a fun shoot and so many favorite photos. Here are a few:

Let’s Celebrate!

It was so fun to photograph my great friend and her beautiful family in San Diego. Not only was the shoot to document her little girl’s second birthday, but she and her husband were getting ready to celebrate their 10 year wedding anniversary. To capture this special time, we started at their home and then drove to the site of their wedding so they could show their children where they were married. So many happy pictures captured, here are just a few:

Energy for days…

I have had the pleasure of watching these sweet boys grow before my eyes over the years. Our first session together was when their oldest son was just four months old, one of the first baby shoots of my career. From moving homes to welcoming family members, I have been lucky enough to capture their special family moments. For this shoot, we went to a local park and let the boys be boys. Another wonderful shoot with an awesome family:

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:

“F” is for Finton!

Finton was a darling baby boy with bright blond hair and blue eyes. We held the session in the family home and Finton’s nursery was so sweet! The color palate was  perfect for his coloring. This darling family had a wonderful time playing with their baby boy who was full of expressions. Here are some of my selects from another fun shoot:

beach beauties!

This was my second shoot with sweet Riley who recently turned one. Our first session was around 4 months of age. Now she is walking and so full of energy and personality! The family is moving soon and wanted to do a last session at their home on the beach before starting a new chapter in their lives. We took a few shots in the house and then let Riley run free and enjoy the gorgeous Southern California weather (short sleeves this time of year?!?) Here are my favorite photos of this gorgeous family:

a family of three.

This shoot was done in the home of this beautiful family. Baby Max was about 6 months old when we did his first photo shoot. He had the longest eyelashes I have ever seen! Such a sweet boy with the nicest parents. Here are my favorite photos we took…
