Unexpected Surprises // Los Angeles Child Photographer

We all know sometimes things don’t go as planned.  But sometimes it makes things even better!  I was doing a photo session at a location that I had chosen for it’s golden leaves and big trees.  We were walking through the park and discovered a little patch of long grass and the twins wanted to go in and explore.  It turned out that these photos were some of my favorites.  I love the depth of field and how these little ones go from serious discovery to all kinds of joy written on their face.  Hurray for unexpected surprises!

Overcast // Orange County Maternity Photographer

Sometimes clients get sad when the sun goes away.  I get it…there’s a lot of beauty in the sun peaking out from the trees.  But, there’s also a lot of beauty in the subtle way that clouds mute all the colors and make them into a watercolor painting.

My job, as a photographer, is to take the situation (whatever it might be) and make it work.  So, if it’s bright and sunny, I’m making the light work for me.  If it’s cool-toned and overcast, I’m gonna make that work for me too!

This maternity session is the perfect example of a beautiful overcast day.

Make it your own // Los Angeles Family Photographer

I’m feeling all the feels for this adorable family in their converse and poppy clothes!  Really, I just love when a location comes together with the people I’m photographing.  This set of urban walls was found in Santa Monica, CA.  A client of mine told me about it and I thought it would be perfect for those that wanted something a little different.

Each family I photographed in this location took a different route.  Some did lots of neutrals, others dressed it up a little.  I love how everyone made this unique space their own.

Having fun

I know that a perfectly posed family photo is a must for every photo shoot.  But, I’ve also gotta say that my very favorite photos are the ones with movement and laughter.  After I get the photos where everyone is smiling and looking at the camera, I get the fun started and then I just move around, capturing every angle.  It really is my favorite part of the photo session!

Holiday Mini-Sessions are Still Available

My holiday mini-sessions are kicking off this weekend.  But, if you haven’t signed up, it’s not too late!  I still have some dates and times open, so look at the options below and click on the link above to check them all out.  This session is from one of my favorites in Laguna Beach.  The rock formation adds the perfect bit of texture to the already gorgeous sand and water scenery.

I love spirited children and these boys were amazing to photograph.  When personalities come through a photo, it just makes it come alive.  So, when I see you this fall, make sure to bring all the spirit!

Orange County Newborn Photography

As much as I love photographing babies in my Long Beach studio, going to a client’s home is also wonderful.  People are generally more comfortable in their own home and they get to put in little touches of their style into the photos.  Not to mention the totally cozy feel the photos have.  So, if you’re on the fence about where to do your photo session, consider doing it at your home.  These photos show just how beautiful an at-home session can be.
