I have been photographing them regularly since Theo, now 5, was 2 or 3 months old. Each time I am welcomed into a new world of magic and make believe. Their creativity and playfulness pull me in. It is impossible to spend a few hours with these kids and not become wrapped up in their pretend world of space travel or alternative realities where their pets have different names.
Excited to share a tiny bit of their beautiful world of childhood with you.
Kids all over L.A. awoke to something magical this morning. Water falling from the SKY!!!
My kids live for the handful of rainy days a year to use their excessive amounts of rain gear they own. My daughter alone, owns 3 pair of rain boots!
She literally could wear a different pair each time it rains a year! hahahaha Of course she wears them on the regular, you know, when it is 78 degrees in June, Kara is likely wearing rain boots.
This morning, however, it was warranted. On the way to the car before school, my kids spent a few minutes enjoying this rare accumulation of water that fell from the sky.
First dance class of the new year and Kara was looking festive in her new furry hooded jacket, ‘Shake it off’ leotard and rain boots!
As we headed to the car I couldn’t resist this little photo op!
On the last day before winter break, I promised my kids I would make them a writing station. I envisioned them spending their break writing and creating. Then break started and so did the rush to finish my editing, then the packing, then the traveling and oh my it is already JANUARY! So I made making this writing station my first (of many) New Year’s resolutions.
The landing at the top of our stairs is our new Writing Station. Clip boards, pencils, paints and brushes. Paper, so much paper! All morning my kids have been creating and my home is strewn with wet paint coated masterpieces!
SO happy I was able to pull this together for them, even if it was at the last minute.
Welcome 2017! I hope you bring lots of creativity into our home!
My family has spent many days at the beach but this one was special.
My husbands Aunt invited us to a beach house in Oxnard. We spent the day in and out of the water, playing ball on the beach, bike riding (and a bicycle built for 2 riding!!) and of course hanging out with family.
Since that weekend my kids, and I, have been boogie boarding weekly! Soo much fun.
Excited for many more beach days, and shoots, before the year ends!
My family had a big week! On the 27th my daughter celebrated her 8th birthday. We had a little family celebration with the most delicious cake from Portos, and took her to the CA Science Center for the afternoon. Today though, is when her big celebrations starts. Grandma flew in late last night and this morning, all 3 of my kids headed to CAMP GRANDMAS! They will spend then next week camping in the Redwoods!
Since I am going to miss them all so much, and because I hadn’t done birthday pictures for Luke or Lex yet (bad photographer mommy) I found time one morning, bribed them all with leftover birthday cake for breakfast, and took these pictures! I am so in love with how they came out.
While I am going to miss them like crazy, I am so excited for their adventure and plan on enjoying the clean quiet house with my husband while they are gone. This week is going to fly by and it will quickly be back to the summer madness.
Happy Father’s Day!!!
I love photographing dads!
Dads of newborns cautiously holding their new babies in their strong arms. Dads of toddlers tossing them into their air.
Dads always have the fun and adventurous ideas at shoots then follow it up with sweet cuddles to wind it down.
For Father’s Day, I would like to offer $100 off all Full sessions booked today!
Cheers to you dads!
Happy Birthday sweet Ari girl!
I was so excited to do a surprise photoshoot of her for her daddy on a recent trip to Northern CA.
We drove through the valley and found the perfect poppy filled field for her 1st birthday pictures.
We played and chased her around the flowers and paths.
I hope now that her daddy is back on land that she is getting lots of daddy cuddles!
I can’t wait to see you again Ari!
So calm and sweet. He was peacefully sleeping in his crib in his DJ themed bedroom when I arrived. I was surprised when he let me move him around without waking! When he did wake, he calmly observed me and my camera or sat contently in his daddies arms. After a quick feeding, he was back asleep for the final in arms photos at the end of our session.
Thank you Asher, for sharing your sweet newborn afternoon with me.
