A couple years ago I photographed this family when their oldest daughter was a newborn. We did some really fun and creative shots using musical instruments to tie in the dad’s musical career. For this shoot, we photographed the newest member of their family using new instruments from dad’s collection. Big sis was such a sweetheart and had lots of love to give her baby sister. Another wonderful shoot with this loving family!
I recently photographed my beautiful sister, brother-in-law and nephew to capture this special time in their family as they await the arrival of their baby boy due in June. We went to the beach where my nephew Beckett could run and play. They are beach lovers (like me) so it was a perfect location for their shoot. I am in love with all their photos and couldn’t wait to show them the photos we took. Here they are:
These darling girls had a tea party all ready for our shoot in their backyard. The session was put together to document the girls together and also to celebrate Quinn’s first birthday with a cake smash! Their mom had so many perfect props to enhance the photos, check out those birthday boards she had made!! It was such a lovely day and and there were so many fun photos to choose from:
Last fall I did a home session in this sweet family’s back yard for their holiday card. The trees and grass, combined with the color palate of the clothing and their warmth and laughter made for a really special shoot. It was so hard for me to narrow down my favorite photos as we captured so many fantastic moments. Tons of laughs and great fun was had by all, especially me. Here are my selects:
I have had the pleasure of watching these sweet boys grow before my eyes over the years. Our first session together was when their oldest son was just four months old, one of the first baby shoots of my career. From moving homes to welcoming family members, I have been lucky enough to capture their special family moments. For this shoot, we went to a local park and let the boys be boys. Another wonderful shoot with an awesome family:
Well, this shoot was done many months ago when this sweet family was expecting there third child. They have since welcomed their little girl to their loving crew. Big brothers Henry and George were full of energy, laughter and spirit. We did a mix of photos inside their gorgeous home and outdoors where boys can be boys. Here are some favorite moments captured:
This family was so photogenic and kind-hearted to boot. It was such a treat to photograph this picture perfect family at their home in Manhattan Beach. They recently welcomed their third child to complete their clan. As you can see from the photos, these kids absolutely adored one another which was so touching to watch. I had a blast with this family and here are a handful of the many photos that captured my heart:
Maya and Jonah were full of smiles during our session at their home. It started with the kids, then we did family photos and finished with a first birthday cake smash for little Jonah! I had also done Maya’s cake smash when she turned one! We had a great time shooting at home and on a walk down the street. Here are some favorites!
It has been quite awhile since I posted personal photos of my little ones, now 4.5 and 2.5 years old. I feel so lucky to not only do what I love for a living, but to also be able to spend so much time with my children, watching them grow and capturing the important times in their lives. Here are some of the photos I have taken over the past year and a half and what they were taken for:
This photo was taken for their 1st and 3rd birthday invitation. We had a joint bubble birthday party, hiring a bubble specialist to entertain the kids.
When I photographed sweet sisters Olivia and Harper, they had a wonderful and captivating energy. When they started to dance, my heart melted instantly. I have had the pleasure of photographing these beautiful souls many times through their lives and each time is an absolute pleasure. Here are the photos I took of this dynamic duo:
