Holiday Mini Sessions are starting!

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!

Sun-shiny days

I really love doing photo sessions outdoors when the sun is shining. For me, I love the bright, warm energy that sunny photos produce. There is a light quality with sunny days that I really love with family photos. These photos were captured on one of those sunny days at a local park. It was a great setting for the session so the boys could run and play, and enjoy the fountain with fish ducks and turtles, giving lots of opportunities to capture candid moments. Here are my selects from this bright sunny mini session!

Fantastic 5

I feel as though I have grown up with this family. I have had the pleasure of capturing their crew since their first born was a toddler and have watched their family grow ever since. I have watched their bonds grow, their personalities shine, it is really something special to be a part of capturing pictures within their family unit. Their youngest was such a personality, full of energy and expression! She keeps them on their toes, in the most wonderful way. Their son has always been a bit more reserved but with a kind nature and maturity beyond his years. Their eldest daughter loves to laugh and play but with poise and grace. I feel so fortunate to make such special connections with families over the years!

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!

Something new and different!

I recently met a family at their home for a family photo session. We did a few pictures at their place then took a little walk to a nearby place they love to hang as a family. It was a new location for me which made it really fun to visit. As a family they go there to run around, walk the dog and spend time. A location that is special to a family makes the photos even more personal and unique. I loved what we captured, here are a few faves:

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!

Beach Beauties and a baby!

I really love when families book beach sessions. While there can be challenges at the beach such as wind-blown hair and sand in everything, there is really something magical about taking pictures with such a beautiful and simple environment. The photos are light and bright, the colors are subtle and it serves as a blank canvas for whatever you want to do! This family chose to wear denim and white and I always love how this looks. Clean and modern, simply beautiful. We started at their home and ended on the beach and it was a really great day.

Watching them Grow

Twelve plus years ago I had my first newborn photo shoot. It was before I had children of my own and I didn’t know much about children but that day changed my photography journey forever. I loved watching and capturing the joy of these new parents overjoyed and in love with their precious baby. And to watch the family grow over the years has been so touching. This was our most recent photo session and I am in love with the pictures we captured. We started out at Will Rogers Park in Beverly Hills and finished up at a nearby intersection. I have nothing but love for this family and the special place they hold in my heart. Here are my favorites from our session!

Soon to be five.

This beautiful family welcomed me into their home to document a special time in their lives. They are expecting a baby and thought it was a perfect time to capture photos. They had recently moved into a new stunning home which was the perfect place to hold our session. We did a handful of shots indoors and did most of the shoot outdoors in their breathtaking garden. So many beautiful moments, here are a few of my favorites:

sugar and spice and everything nice.

Newborn baby Jolie was welcomed into her family by her adoring parents and two older brothers. She was beautiful and so tiny, it was a really fun shoot because her parents had some wonderful and creative ideas and props. Her purple nursery was a perfect setting for the shoot. It was so hard to choose favorites from this shoot since there were so many photos I loved, but here they are!
