A Whole New World for Grayson

Sarah and Matt’s story is really sweet… These two are actual high school sweethearts, transplants from the midwest and used to migrating for Matt’s work in the military. They’ve now made Hermosa Beach their roots, nesting for a baby. But not how you would automatically assume! Without great detail, I do know that they chose […]

The Larwins Welcome Kyle John

There are so many variables to newborn shoots.  Because I come to you I’m working within your home, your available light and trying to incorporate your meaningful items like blankets, toys, clothing.  I’m also a slave to the baby’s mood or disposition.  I’ve had shoots that take 4+ hours to yield a collection of solid […]

The Ramos Family

Although I am in the thick of the holiday season with orders, cards and a photography version of Santa’s workshop I simply couldn’t resist sharing a few from Tuesday’s shoot.  This is such a perfect example of how I can document families as they grow.  You see, I photographed Sarah and Ignacio’s engagement session, their […]

Mr Thomas Robert is here!

I love meeting new clients in all different ways, it’s amazing how people find me actually.  I photographed Amy and Jon’s pregnancy a few months back (search that category and you can see that too!) thanks to Amy being a bridesmaid in a wedding last May.  The power of working hard, truly caring about your […]

Sweet little Makenna- Newborn Shoot

If you follow my blog I seem to always want to share my shoots with Jess and Doug.  Everything from their colorful, modern engagement session… their gorgeous wedding day at Hyatt Huntington… their pregnancy shoot (recently)… so it seems only natural to show off their pride and joy.  Meet Makenna!  She’s so tiny for a […]

Sugar ‘N Spice and Everything Nice- Newborn Session

I’ve been documenting Rachel and Ronnie’s lives for the past 5 years, from their engagement session to their wedding all the way through the birth of their beautiful brand new baby girl.  Meet Ava Rayne, their gorgeous bundle of joy!  She really is a pretty baby!!!  And was pretty easy too.  Although we blew through […]

Mr Grady Powell – Newborn Shoot

If you browse backwards, you’ll find posts of Ashley and Paul’s family for years.  I was blessed to meet Ashley back when she worked for The White House restaurant and was branching out to what is now an extremely successful career as a wedding/event planner.  She was pregnant with her first, Zach, at the time. […]

Hayden Blaes Pekar

Ahhh the joys of my work.  Photographing Jessica and Scott’s wedding, then their pregnancy session and now the birth of their first son, Hayden.  Jess had such an easy-peasy pregnancy that I was sure he was going to pop right out like butta.  Unfortunately he was breech, unable to turn and early.  Having a C […]

Cindy and Nate’s new addition

Cindy and Nate had a gorgeous wedding at Saddlerock Ranch, Malibu in 2010.  How do I know this?  Because I was their photographer!!  Fast forward to 2012 and along comes Noah.  However he’s technically their second addition to their family after Miss Wiley, the protective little King Charles Spaniel.  I know how Cindy and Nate […]

Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice

I immediately clicked with Sonia and Danny back when they first met with me for their beautiful three day indian wedding.  I enjoyed every moment of their colorful and meaningful traditions.  As I got to know them better I knew they were so much more than a “client” to me.  We found ourselves making sure […]

Welcome to the world Hadley!

I simply adore Jen and Matt.  From the moment they sat down considering me for their wedding photography, through the engagement session, on the wedding day (Matt, you broke me man, you made me cry tears of joy!) all the way through their pregnancy and now the birth of their first child, Miss Hadley.  If […]

Isn’t she lovely… Isn’t she won-der-ful…

I don’t know why, but the entire time I was editing this shoot Stevie Wonder’s “Isn’t She Lovely” kept running through my head!  Makes me sound so silly, doesn’t it?  What can I say, Mia inspires me.  At 2 weeks old this little girl and I spent the afternoon creating together.  My first impression was […]

Welcome to the world Gavin Thomas Boyle!

If you keep an eye on my blogs (or want to search pregnancy category and look it up) I couldn’t resist posting Gavin’s newborn shoot after such a cool shoot of Christine pregnant.  Brendan’s really a hands-on dad.  So cute to see a military guy who’s had to be so brave be so sweet.  And […]

Madeline’s Family

First off, I gotta say that I cannot believe how fast this month, no wait, this YEAR is flying by!!!  Sorry for the lapse, I’ve just been so busy DOING that I haven’t been documenting it.  But this one has to be shared… I photographed Sarah and Ignacio’s wedding back in ’05.  I was so […]

Dan Jr- Newborn Session

If you scroll backwards a few blogs ago I’d posted a few highlights from Cat and Dan’s pregnancy session… well, baby Danny came 3 weeks early!  We were all so glad we did the shoot when we did, that was a close one!!!  Luckily he was already 7 pounds and perfect health, no premie status […]

Newborn Photo Shoot

As you know from my website, I love to photograph more than just weddings. One of my greatest rewards in my career is to remain in touch with my brides & grooms and continue to photograph the events of their life. I was honored to get the email from Connie that her first daughter, Cassidy […]

My apologies

I am so sorry for taking so long to blog again. It’s been a whirlwind ever since I got back from my Park City trip. (which was way too much fun btw) I think a lot of couples got engaged over the holidays because I have had some great meetings since I’ve been home. The […]
