Rock on!

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!

Boy oh boy!

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:

Fall fun.

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:

Energy for days…

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:

Mommy-to-be….here comes #3!

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:maternity and family photography los angeles_1073

Welcome baby Piper!

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:

Big sis, baby bro…

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!

We held the shoot in their family home and captured so much warmth and love, it truly was a pleasure. Here are some favorites from our shoot:

Malibu beach house shoot

The beach is one of my favorite places to do shoots. This shoot was done at a home in Malibu while the family was on vacation and it was the perfect location. We had the beach style home to use as well as the actual beach which provided lots of great locations. We had perfect weather, happy kids and a wonderful location making this one of my favorite family shoots to date. I had such a hard narrowing down my selects but here they are!

Sisters!

I have watched these girls grow up in front of my camera over the years which is such a cool part of my job. Riley, the oldest was in baby group with my daughter and I have known and photographed her since she was just a few months old. Now she has a little sister and partner in crime, Moira. These two were absolutely adorable together. We did their shoot at their home and I love the pictures we took. Here are some highlights from our shoot:
