The holidays are on the horizon…are you ready?

The holidays are a wonderful time filled with family, love, special events and parties, gifts, and celebration. But they can also be a stressful time for people getting ready- shopping, calendars filled with commitments, and so much more piled onto our already busy lives. Then there are holiday cards…do you send them out? For those who do this can be a daunting yet rewarding task. As much of a pain it is to take the photo, order/stamp/address and send the cards. But as much of a time consuming process as it is, it is so nice to receive them in the mail every year. I love seeing families and how the kids have grown. It is one of the only forms of mail that I really look forward to receiving anymore! I put them out in our home and the kids talk about them and look forward to adding new ones to the wall each day. It is a really nice tradition and is one that I hope never dies.

Below is a family session that I captured last year for the holidays. This was a weekday mini session done at a local park. I love the colors of the environment with the morning light combined with the light tones they are wearing. If you are interested in booking a session, please email me and we can find the right kind of session for your needs!

Dance and play all day

How to dress for a family photography session is very personal and should speak to your unique style. While it is nice to coordinate and not clash, I do not like to dictate what to wear. Sometimes families dress in casual attire, while other times they get dressed up. These photos are ultimately yours to treasure, so I want my clients to dress as a reflection of who they are and what they love. Clothing can give confidence, comfort and style, all wonderful additions to family pictures. This family dressed so beautifully for their photo shoot, I absolutely love the color palate and sharp style they conveyed. I love even more that they were open to running around and playing even when dressed to the nines. To me, that is something special. Here are the magical photos we captured in this dressy yet playful session!

Boys & boards

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!

picture perfect.

I recently photographed this adorable family for their holiday card photos. The kids were so much fun to watch and photograph. We did formal portraits first and then let the kids play and interact. They were silly, smiley and sweet and so full of life. These are my favorite photos from the shoot!
