New Addition Coming Soon | Venice Maternity Photographer

February 28, 2011

I met Allison almost five years ago.  We worked in the same office, and I will always remember how she brightened up the room whenever she came into our office.  I found out a few months ago that she and her husband were expecting there child.  I was secretly hoping she would contact me about photographing her, so I was very excited two weeks ago when I got her email.

I had a really wonderful shoot with Allison and Josh (and the adorable pug) despite the crazy wind.

Allison & Josh, I look forward to meeting your little one soon!

Here are a couple of my favorites 🙂

S Turns 6! | Pasadena Child Photographer

October 30, 2010

Last weekend, I had the honor of photographing S at his family’s My Gym in Chino Hills.  It is a beautiful space.  I love the mural that is painted all over the walls.  I still am in awe at the staffs’ energy.  Between holding my camera the whole time and watching the staff run around with the kids, I was wiped out by the time I was finished.

I am still working on editing the images, but I wanted to put up a little sneak preview for S’s folks.  I thought the creatures were a good place to start.  Thor’s Reptile Family is responsible for the wide variety of critters.

Have a great weekend!

Hazel Turns 6 | Los Angeles Child Photographer

October 30, 2010

A few weeks back Hazel turned six.  I cannot believe that it has already been 4 years since I first met Steve, Henya, and Hazel.  I first ran into them at the Silver Lake Farmer’s Market.  Hazel was shy to the point of being terrified when I said hello to her, and Henya was pregnant with Lena (yellow princess dress below).  Hazel is no longer shy, and it has been a pleasure to watch her grow up over these past few years.  It really puts the whole “time flies” thing into perspective when you watch a child grow from year to year.

The delicious ice cream cake pictured below is homemade.  It was delicious.  🙂

I have been trying to challenge myself when photographing on my own.  This time I only  had two rolls of film to shoot, so I had to make the most of it.  Below are a bunch of my favorites from Hazel’s day.

Happy Halloween everyone!

Beetles & Stripes | Los Angeles Children’s Photographer

June 26, 2010

I had the pleasure of photographing the S family this morning over in the Pacific Palisades at Temescal Canyon Gateway Park. Once again, my session started off with a little critter encounter – this time it was a beetle. 🙂 There is a lot of love in this family, and it was a blast to photograph.

Here are a few of my favorites from the day…

Lena’s Third Birthday | Los Angeles Child Photographer

February 14, 2010

It feels like I was just at her second birthday, yet yesterday, I helped celebrate her third.  I keep looking at the photographs, and I find myself thinking how much she looks like a little girl.  The first photograph was taken at her second birthday.  The remaining images were taken yesterday.  Lena became a little unnerved when the cake came out, but luckily, the candle went out on its own.  The was food from the Mexicatessan in Eagle Rock.  YUM!  And, once again, Henya outdid herself with her homemade red velvet cake.

Happy Sunday!

The Silber Family | Los Angeles Child Photographer

November 22, 2009

I had a great time meeting the Silber Family today, despite little C’s first reaction to me. He was convinced I was a baby sitter, which in his eyes, meant that his parents were leaving him with a stranger. Thank goodness for his lovely little fire truck! I loved so many images from this session. Between the clothing, the leaves and the sun it actually looks like it is fall in California 🙂

A big thank you to Rob for setting this up!!
