  • A Day In SF - Vacation Photography

  • Every year we spend Christmas in Sacramento with my inlaws. This last year was extra special. We gifted Grandma and Auntie tickets to The SF Ballet Nutcracker! The day after Christmas all the girls headed to San Francisco. We went to the pier, had dinner at Scoma's before heading to the ballet. I was so excited to take Kara to her first real ballet and the SF Nutcracker did not disappoint! Snowfall, tutus, nutcrackers, Christmas trees...  just magical! Hoping these girls days out in the city become a yearly Christmas tradition.
  • Little Jakob - Los Angeles Newborn Photography

  • Meet Jakob. You may remember him from his Malibu maternity session a few weeks ago. :::wink::: After having so much for with his parents at the beach I could not wait to meet him. He did not disappoint! He was so precious and content. Very alert and interested in what I was up to with my camera. His mama, who is a fellow photographer, is going to have so much fun photographing him as he grows up. He is already clearly a great little model!
  • On Sunday Morning - Los Angeles Farmers Market Family Photography

  • When we first moved to Los Angeles, we spent Sunday mornings at The Original Farmers Market. Specifically Bob's Donuts. Our family would walk over, eat donuts, grab some berries from the fruit stand, and stroll through The Grove, making wishes at the koi fountain before heading back home. The kids LOVED this. I loved that the kids could run around freely before the large crowds would take over. Over the last few years, this little tradition slowed and walks to the Farmers Market have become rare. We go when friends from out of town visit, birthdays and December nights for hot cocoa's and snowfall at The Grove. This past Sunday we gathered up our little crew and headed out for donuts, camera in tow. I think this little Sunday tradition needs to become a more regular thing for our family again. Does your family have a weekend morning tradition like this? I would love to hear about it in the comments!
  • Theodore - Los Angeles newborn Photography

  • I love photographing new parents. Those first few days quickly become a blur and little details are forgotten. At my sessions, I like to catch those little parenting moments and the connection between parents and their new baby. Little Theodore was so content in his parents arms and his parents were clearly over the moon with him!
  • Welcome London - Los Angeles Birth Photography

  • When This mama called me and asked me to attend her birth I was beyond excited! You see, I attended her first birth 3 years ago.  To be invited back for her next birth was a great honor! Photographing her husband, son and family friend support her through her birth was so powerful. They had made that little birthing room at Kaiser their home for the evening. The room was filled with smiles, music, toy cars... you know, all the things you need at your birth! I can not wait to photograph sweet London as he grows up just like I have his big brother Sydney!
  • Baby Gram - Los Angeles Newborn Photography

  •     Meet Gram. You may remember him from his last session with me. He was in his mamas belly! I was so excited to finally meet him! He invited me to his mom where he showed me all his toys and pets. Then he took a lovely afternoon nap and was a photographers dream baby! I had a really hard time limiting the images down that I would share today. There were just so many perfect ones so "bear" with me because this is one epic heavy post!
