Sweet little Jemma was so tiny and amazing at her newborn session. We started with family and sibling shots which she was mostly awake for, then we did the sleepy newborn posed shots and she slept like a champ! We captured such a nice variety of photos and this family was so fun to work with. I really love newborn sessions because there is so much love to capture (and I get my newborn baby fix 😉) Here are the photos from this precious newborn session!
Holiday mini sessions are 30 minute photo shoots held in different places around Los Angeles on various days in the fall. Families sign up for a designated time and I shoot back-to-back sessions to capture families and kids for holiday card photos. Some people just use it as an excuse to have family photos taken, regardless of whether they actually mail out a card. It is a quick and easy way to have photos done and I shoot a lot in a short amount of time! This session was done last fall at the UCLA campus. I absolutely love the architecture and fall feel of the trees in this location. And how about this sweet family?! I loved the dance party photos in the quad- such fun!

I met this darling family at their home to capture photos of their sweet little boys. The primary focus was on the baby to get some sweet new photos of him alone. We also captured a couple with mom and big brother, just because they were too cute to pass up! The baby was about 2 1/2 months old when we did pictures, so we captured a mix of sleepy baby photos and awake. There are so many wonderful ages to capture in the baby days, this was great because he was still so new but we were able to see some personality shine through! And that little tux onesie was just the cutest thing ever!!!
Often times people who have never done a family photography session are unsure what to expect. It can be stressful planning the clothing, getting ready and to the shoot on time, picking a time of day that works best for schedule and kids temperaments, etc. Then the uncertainty of how kids will respond to being photographed is another factor. I get it completely and try to do my best on my end to make it as easy on parents as possible. I like to encourage laughter and play during the shoot to make it feel less like work and more like fun to the children. I find that brings forth the best and most genuine smiles. The kids in this session were so much fun and brought an energy that made my job easy. They laughed, ran, played and I clicked away. I think we captured a nice mix of portraits and play which is always my favorite approach to a family session!
These dear friends wanted to do something a little different for their holiday card this year and I could not be more obsessed with the photos we captured. We visited the Retna Wall on Melrose which has since been painted over. To me, it makes these photos even more special and unique. We all had a lot of fun with a mix of portraits and play. I adore the wardrobe choices they made and especially the pops of red! Such a special session with an amazing family.
I first photographed Petie as a newborn baby. Well, he is 20 months old and it was so fun to see how he has grown and changed! He is such a bright little boy, reciting his numbers, alphabet and colors throughout the shoot. He was really excited to learn, read, color, and play. He had some of the most darling expressions and his parents were so in love with their little cutie, it was wonderful to watch. He played with balloons for the first time in his life at the shoot and it was adorable! Here are my selects from a great shoot:
