  • Banksy Balloon Girl -Los Angeles Children's Photographer

  • Banksy Balloon Girl

    Street art is part of city life. I love watching my regular drives transform even without structural changes. It makes me think, creates interesting conversation sometimes just confuses me…

    Either way, I love it.My all time favorite piece is Banksy’s balloon girl. It has always reminded me of my daughter. Her hair blowing in the wind, little dress over jeans..

    I see innocence, I see loss, I see hope, I see myself… Let Go.

    I have had this shot in my mind for a few weeks. Last night my husband, daughter and I went for it! We hike as high as we could over Griffith Park and set up this Banksy inspired shot of my 5 year old Kara Justice.

    If you are not familiar with Banksy or the art that inspired my photo you can find more is his work at www.banksy.co.uk

  • Banana Strawberry Yogurt - Los Angeles Lifestyle Photography

  • Yesterday my daughter woke up with a fever. She stayed in bed and cuddled me most of the day. Getting some (any) food in her was a priority and was thrilled when she requested yogurt! What better food than probiotics and fruit when your sick. I made this recipe for her yesterday and when she woke up feeling better this morning she asked for more. So I showed her how to make it herself, with a little help from her brother. I hope you and your kids enjoy this simple recipe as much as my kids did.

    What you need:

    Strawberries

    Bananas

    Plain yogurt

    simple truth bananas and strawberries

    Cut the tops off the strawberries

  • Beach Day! -Santa Monica Family Photography

  • First of all, WELCOME to my new website! After a week of serious frustration, some snapping at my husband and a few tears that were thankfully followed by “AH-HA!” moments I am so happy to finally share it with the world.

    Who knew I was a web designer?? I sure didn’t! I had been telling my self for a few years that to have a site like this I would have to pay for it. When in fact.. I just needed to quit Facebook for a week and FOCUS!

    My website and blog are now ONE! No more confusing back and forth for you or me. I hope you will have a look around, but keep in mind I am still adding photos to galleries and making small tweeks!

    To celebrate (really to thank my kids and husband for sticking it through “Christina pretending to be a website builder week”) we headed to the beach for a much needed family day at the beach.

    Here is a little peek at the fun we had.

    Lex working hard!

  • Santa Monica Beach Maternity Shoot

  • Dana is a mama of a little guy already and expecting a daughter in a few weeks. Last week she came over to my house right from work (and got a peek at what life with more than one kid looks like… I hope my kids didn’t scare her!! haha). She was pampered by my lovely Hair and make up artist Hiroko. Then we headed to Santa Monica for the evening. It was such a beautiful day. The sun was warm, the breeze was light. Dana was so much fun and up for anything… including going into the ocean.. dressed! By the end of her shoot we were both soaked and had sand where sand just shouldn’t be 😡 It was so worth it for these pictures we got! I can not wait for meet your daughter Dana ♥

    Oh and shouldn’t we all be so adorable in our bikinis when we are 8 months pregnant??

  • Kara Justice Age 5! -Los Angeles Children Photography

  • My baby girl turned 5 this week!

    She is growing up more and more each day but being 5 is a pretty big deal!

    All week my husband and I thought about ways we could keep her 4 forever.. but we don’t have super powers or magic wands and she wouldn’t

    agree to wearing a stack of book on her head no matter how much we bribed her.  Can you believe it!

    She did agree to a birthday photoshoot! We played around our tower and then headed to the Hollywood Hill for some more photos at sunset. Here is what I captured!

  • Nora - Pasadena Newborn Photography

  • When I walked into Nora’s home I was greeted by two little guys wondering what side

    of my car my tailpipe was on. I hadn’t thought about it before then… I now know, the left!

    Their home screamed toddler BOY everywhere (there was a trampoline in the dining room, yeah so fun!)

    Two little guys escorted me up the stairs to their mom, who was in all white bed nursing the

    sweetest little bundle still wearing her band from the hospital that read “GIRL.”

    This is a little bit of what I captured during my stay….

    3, 2, and new.
