park play.

Last holiday season I shot these pictures at a local Beverly Hills Park. I have photographed Chase since he was a newborn and he is so sweet and full of life. We had a perfect morning and captured photos that I adore. Here are the standouts:

Precious Angel

A few year ago I captured photos of baby Braydon for his newborn photos. Well, now that he is a big brother, his family had me back to capture their newest family member, newborn baby Zoey. She was so well behaved and a great little sleeper which made my job easy. These two made a great pair and we had a wonderful shoot. These are my picks:

showing baby bro the ropes

I am so lucky to have gotten to know this incredible family over the years. This was our shoot #4 and this time they had a new family member! Big brother was great with his little bro and as always, I had the best time catching up with the parents and photographing this warm family. Here are photos of this family of four:

growing, growing!

This was my third shoot with this amazing family. The first shoot was when their precious little girl was just a baby, the second shoot was done when they were building their new home and this shoot was in their new home! It is so cool to photograph families over time and watch the children grow before my eyes. This time the kids were so grown up, enthusiastic and energetic. It was wonderful to see how they have matured yet still had the sweet innocence that only a child can have. All-in-all it was a wonderful shoot. Here they are:

Newborn baby love.

Big sister and brother were thrilled to welcome their baby sister into their family. I photographed these darling kids several years ago and was honored to document their newest arrival. Everything about this family represents love, warmth, togetherness and family. The kids were eager to be photographed and take turns with baby sis. Between smiling kids and a soundly sleeping newborn, they made my job a breeze! Here are some favorite photos from our shoot together:

Three Peas in a Pod

These adorable kids have grown up before my lens and I have been lucky enough to document many special times in their lives. From pregnancies to newborn photos and watching them grow into these sweet little people, I am so grateful to be there to capture these moments. Here was our latest shoot at their beautiful new home:

Jump, slam dunk and smile

This was my second shoot with this loving family (here was the first). We started the shoot at their gorgeous home. The boys each took a turn posing in their rooms which lead to taking turns slam dunking the bunk bed hoop (a first for me!) I love the energy and love that these boys shared. Some of my favorite photos are the action shots we captured. We ended at the park in the park throwing leaves and then after I said goodbye the boys played on the basketball court. Such a fun shoot and so many favorite photos. Here are a few:

Fire trucks and tutus

This gorgeous family welcomed their sweet angel to their family and I was so lucky to get to document this special time in their lives. We did a variety of different shots from family, individuals of the kids and the siblings together. At first, big brother was a little unsure of posing with his sister but all of a sudden he leaned over and gave her a kiss and my heart completely melted. So many beautiful moments captured as the love and warmth was felt throughout. Here are a handful of favorites:

Sweet Siblings

Giggles and play were a theme with these two adorable kiddos. They laughed, ran, danced and played as I snapped away. This family could not have been sweeter and I love the wonderful and real moments that we captured. Here are some standout photographs from our shoot at the park:

Baby bump to baby boy!

Photographing this beautiful couple was such fun as they were awaiting the arrival of their little angel. Shortly thereafter, I got to come back and photograph their son Graham as a newborn! They lived near the beach so we divided the maternity session between the beach and their home. Their sweet and energetic dog was thrilled to meet baby boy as they cuddled for photos together. Here are my favorites from the two shoots:
