Vintage Romantic Elegance

If you have not yet visited Greystone Mansion, you absolutely should! It’s stunning gardens and old architecture make for a wonderful place to visit and a very special place to capture family photos. This family chose the perfect attire for the setting. How picture-perfect are these sisters in their matching dresses? We wandered the grounds late in the afternoon and took a mix of portraits and candid moments. I really love the pictures we took, here are a few favorites:

Windy beach blown hair, don’t care!

I recently photographed this loving mommy and her three precious girls as a Father’s Day gift for Dad. We met at the beach late in the day and simply let the girls play. Mom requested to capture a few portraits but to also focus more on real candid moments over staged pictures so we let the children be kids which is exactly how to capture the BEST childhood laughter and play. I love the bright airy quality of the light at this time of day and the clothes they wore were a perfect compliment. Here are the photos we captured on this magical day!

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!

Childhood Unplugged

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:

Daddy’s Girls

When this kindhearted dad contacted me he had a vision in mind for his photo shoot. He was looking for photos of himself with his daughters in a natural setting capturing more candid moments documenting this age and time in their lives. We took the pictures at Descanso Gardens in La Canada Flintridge and WOW what a perfect setting. It was green and lush with countless picture perfect backdrops. It was really nice to watch this amazing man interact with his sweet girls. So many favorites, it was really hard to choose:

Girls just wanna have fun

I absolutely love photographing sisters because it brings back so many memories from my childhood. These two beauties were playful, energetic and covered an array of activities to keep themselves entertained. From an outdoor dance party, swings, reading, kitchen play, and artwork to bouncing on the bed and dressing up, we captured the essence of girls being young and full of life. Here are some favorite photos of this precious pair:
