This year I offered Mother’s Day sessions and it was one of my favorites. Having a special day for parents to connect with their kids was so touching. I seriously love the images. If you want to check out just a snippet of what went on, head over to my Facebook page.
One of the families that was there asked if I’d be doing the same thing for dads, so I thought, why not!? I know most dads aren’t probably going to be a huge fan of being photographed for 30 minutes, so feel free to mix in the family or just shots of the kids. Or, bring the grandparents! These sessions are light-hearted and fun. It’s just about having fun with your kids!

The session fee is $100, click below to book your session. The digital images will be an additional $175 (for a minimum of 25 re-touched images). This is the same price as the Mother’s Day sessions and it’s such a great deal!
I start the session by asking, is your baby serious? One year olds can be all business. They have a whole world to learn! And if I try to get too silly, it will just back fire and scare them. But, if I ease into things, the smiles will come at the end of the session.
This particular session started out with the baby just checking me out. She was curious about me and the big black camera. But, before long, she forgot she was at a photo session and her mom and dad were able to get her laughing and smiling.
That’s the beauty of reading people (and babies). If you ask questions and be accommodating, everything goes your way!

Moms are the besssssst. Seriously, moms love so self-sacrificially. Photographing moms with their kids ranges from sweet and snuggly to almost falling over with laughter. If you’ve never been photographed with your kids, now’s the time to do it. Tell your family, this is what you want for Mother’s Day!
Here’s the details…
30 minute mini-session $100
All your digital images are an additional $175, which is half-off. Because I love you MOMS!
The photo sessions will take place in Long Beach at a green park…details will come when you book your session. Click on the links below to pay for your session fee and confirm your time.
This is a little snippet from one of my favorite families. I’ve worked with them over the years and always look forward to seeing their sweet girls. Don’t let their sweet smiles fool you, they kill it on the soccer field too. 🙂
That’s the beauty of years of experience in the same field. You get to know families and there’s no warm up or get to know you. There’s only hugs and high fives! I’m lucky enough to have many many families that I get to see year after year. I love watching their kids grow up and see them flourish!

Family is everything. Right? I mean when it comes down to it, those people that you live with, those are the ones that matter most at the end of the day. We might struggle with getting everything finished at work and checked off on the to-do list. But, making family number one is so key to a happy life. I’m most fulfilled when I get to work with people that get this. And to be honest, if you’re investing money into photography than you value your family. Maybe that’s why I love my job so much!

If you don’t go home sandy, then it wasn’t a good beach day. And that applies to photo sessions too. I loved this sweet family that came out to Newport Beach this summer. We had fun getting sandy and little wet. It was on a super hot day, so no one minded.
I love these types of natural sessions, where everyone is just happy and enjoying the California sun!
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!

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.

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.
