A Very Venice Photo Shoot | Venice, CA Child Photographer

October 28, 2011

Last Sunday was a bit crazy in terms of weather.  It was hot (80) near my home, and mid-winter (California Winter) in Venice.  It was chilly and overcast, but it was perfect for photos.  🙂

My first meeting with this family occurred during last year’s Tales & Toys Fall Mini Sessions.  I had a wonderful time with N, T, and their Aunt.  This year I had the pleasure of photographing the kids with their mom as well as their aunt and grandmother.  I also met Charlie the dog too.  There is a lot of love in this family, and it is beautiful to see it come across so honestly in the photographs.


Here are a few from the day…

Expanding Family | Los Angeles Child Photographer

October 5, 2011

I fell in love with Sophia the first time I met her back in 2009 during an instore promotion with Janie and Jack.  I secretly hoped her parents would contact me again.  🙂  A few months later, I was asked to photograph Sophia’s first birthday.  It was a beautiful day after a long week of non-stop rain.  Since our first meeting I have become good friends with her parents.  Every session is fun and carefree.  Sophia has a very strong will, and it is a pleasure to watch her grow into it.

A few months ago, Kristine mentioned they were expecting another child.  It was a delight to have the chance to photograph her family again.  It is a good thing we had the session when we did, because their little one arrived three weeks early (less than a week after our session)!

I cannot wait to meet her!

In the meantime, here are a few favorites from our maternity session.
