2017 Fall Mini Sessions

Hey L.A.!

I’m saving Saturday, November 4th for you to do Fall Mini Sessions!

The Details : 30 minute lifestyle session, a private online image gallery, and 20 hi-res digital files. $250

Where: 

Option 1: In morning in the comfort and convenience of your home where the hard work of parenting is done and real family memories are made. 

Option 2:  Outdoors in a location near your home; to catch that golden hour light. There will be 2 of these available from 4-6pm.

Send me a note and let me know if you're down! 

Our Favorite Thing To Do is Hug

"What is your favorite thing to do as a family?", I asked the kids. "Our favorite thing to do is HUG!" they yelled and giggled. How sweet is that?! I had the recent pleasure of photographing the winners of my free mini session as part of the fundraiser for the Cresenta Sports Association. These 5 year old twins welcomed me with such joy and were so eager to show me around their home. I'm pretty fluent in toddler / preschool kids so we had the best time playing, dancing and telling jokes (Question: What do you call a bear with no teeth? Answer: A gummy bear!) It was great to capture memories from this age before they start kindergarten in the fall (where does the time go??).

Hello, Darling | Brentwood Newborn Session

I love getting to know my families and their stories. Lindsey and Adam are college sweethearts who recently welcomed their first child, Felicity.  Their session felt relaxed and easy, just like friends hanging out. Lindsey's parents were in town visiting and I'm so glad we were able to include multiple generations in this session. I'm so excited for this family's new adventures together. Welcome to the world, darling Felicity!

Childhood Unplugged

One of my favorite things to photograph is kids being kids. I love this window of time during childhood when imagination and creativity are in full force. There's no filter, anything is possible and everything is new and exciting. It's also pretty funny to see how the minds of toddlers work. :)

Here are a few photos taken over the past couple of months of childhood unplugged.

This is how a two and three year old play hide and seek. Where could they be?

She found my makeup in a drawer and had no idea what any of it was. I'm guessing that it must have looked like crayons to her two year old mind...so why not color your feet?

Baby Jasper | South Pasadena Newborn Session

Boy, do I love newborn sessions! The warm squishiness and smell of a new baby is unbeatable. Also, the pride and joy that exudes from new parents is palpable, which I totally understand. You wait your whole life to welcome this little soul into the world and although the pregnancy may not have been easy and the delivery more difficult than you imagined, he's finally here. And he's perfect. Congratulations to Rupal and Andrew on your sweet baby boy!
