Chan Family- Los Angeles Arboretum Family Portraits

2016-04-13_0031.jpg
Most of the families I photograph have little kids. I guess because they change so much so fast, parents feel the need to capture that time in their lives. They see those kids growing up quicker than they could have imagined and know they will be off to college and out of the house before they know it.

But even though her girls ARE out of the house and off to college, Cecilia still wanted photos of her precious family. I was so honored to be able to photograph her and her husband, as well as her beautiful daughters recently at the LA Arboretum. Everything was in bloom, which made for a gorgeous backdrop.

Amy & Amir- Dove Canyon Golf Club Wedding Photographer

Dove Canyon Golf Club Jewish Wedding 043.JPG
Amy & Amir are such a sweet couple. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a guy dote on his love as much as Amir does with Amy. His words of love and affirmation leave no question; he loves her with all of his heart. His reaction to seeing his bride for the first time during their first look is one of my favorites I’ve seen.

Fox Family- Corona del Mar Family Portraits

Corona del Mar Beach Family Portraits001.JPG
It’s always such a compliment when I have return clients. Even more so when that client is a talented photographer herself! I have had the privilege of photographing Amber Fox and her family since her twin boys were one year old. I can’t believe how big they’re getting! It makes me feel old! We had a fun time climbing on the rocks and getting soaked at the beach!

Jill & Bryan- Palos Verdes Engagement Photos-Point Vicente Lighthouse

Palos Verde Engagement Photographer- Point Vi001cente Light House.JPG
Sometimes for an engagement session, it’s fun to return to the “scene of the crime”, if you will… the place he proposed.
When Bryan proposed, he brought Jill to a gorgeous spot in Palos Verdes. They were high on the cliffs overlooking the ocean, with Point Vicente Lighthouse in the background, when he popped the question. Of course she said yes! And I had a blast spending the afternoon with them and getting to see the exact spot where forever started for them.

Cooper- 6 Months

2016-03-23_0001.jpg
Half a year.
Really?
Seems impossible.
2016-03-23_0002.jpg
This kid has filled our house with so much baby gear, and has filled our hearts with so much love.
2016-03-23_0004.jpg
His smile charms his way into the hearts of everyone he meets. People comment about what a happy baby he is.

2016-03-23_0003.jpg

2016-03-23_0006.jpg
He gets this talent from his mom.
2016-03-23_0007.jpg
Cooper is rolling all over the place and still working on sitting up by himself.
2016-03-23_0009.jpg
2016-03-23_0010.jpg
He is very curious and we love watching his eyes light up as he discovers something new. This week he met the neighbor dogs and couldn’t stop giggling!
2016-03-23_0008.jpg
He loves his car walker, his exersaucer and jumping in his jumper.

I think he might be getting bored of seeing me all day long. When he sees his friends in the nursery at church, or any little ones his size, he squeals and laughs, making evryone around giggle as well.

We are eating solid food twice a day. So far he loves oatmeal, bananas, apples, carrots, squash, tolerates green beans and doesn’t seem to like peas. He makes a “nom nom nom” noise as he eats the ones he likes.
And he has definitely discovered his tongue. And found his voice. Mostly to scream just for fun!
2016-03-23_0019.jpg
Cooper has always loved bath time, so we love bath time. Because of this we are starting swim lessons tomorrow!

I love the look in his eyes every time we pour water over his head.
2016-03-23_0020.jpg
We love our little tiger. And it’s fun that we got one of the kids bath towels I designed. We love wrapping him up in it.

Thind Family- Orange County Maternity/Family Photos

2016-03-21_0001.jpg
I have had the privilege of photographing this faimly through many stages as they’ve grown. First, when Palak & Simmy were engaged, then as they got married, when they were expecting their first little guy, and now as they anticipate the arrival of the newest little member of their family; a precious baby girl. I just can’t get enough of this cute family, and am grateful to call them friends.

Annie & Bryant- USC Engagement Photos- Los Angeles

USC Engagement Photos- Los Angeles014.JPG
Annie and Bryant met at UC Irvine. Bryant’s path would lead him back to his hometown, in the Bay Area. Annie would eventually follow. But when Bryant decided to go back to school, their journey together led them back to Southern California, Annie’s home. Since they met in college, and since grad school at USC is what brought them back, it seemed fitting for USC’s campus to be the backdrop for their engagement photos.

it was such a treat to explore this beautiful campus.

Last year was a bit crazy… not that this year isn’t, with… ya know… having a newborn and all. πŸ™‚ But there were some really fun shoot with some really great people that never got featured here on the blog-diggity.
One of them was when we were up in Napa. I got the opportunity to photograph a family at their family’s vineyard. Andrea and Steve got married here at his sister’s vineyard. I was there! I Iactually sang during their ceremony. Crazy! Now they have four adorable, and kind children. We had a blast roaming around the property.
