Family Session | Malibu Creek State Park, CA

Happy 1st Birthday Elliott! He has grown so much since our shoot at El Matador Beach last year, you can check out - here. Last time, he wasn't walking, but that's not the case anymore! He was full of squeals & loved riding on mommy's back and in daddy's arms. Malibu Creek State Park was the perfect spot for a walking 1 year old- warm, sunny and more green than I have ever seen it! It was awesome that Namu, their doggie could join too. Elliott loves his pup!

I love this family, enjoy highlights from their shoot!

Chase's 1st | Family Portraits | Laguna Niguel

This "handsome little guy" was just that! I loved all of his faces, noises, and contagious laugh!

For Chase's 1st birthday, his whole family traveled far and wide - (even India!!) - for their first family photo shoot with both sides of family members - including great grandma who is 95 years young!  It was such a beautiful celebration of color with vibrant saris against the earth tones in the park. Everyone was so happy to be there, easy to work with, and and I was all smiles along with them!


A major thank you to Chase's parents, Ram and Courtney for organizing everyone to come and celebrate!

 ~ Happy Birthday Chase! ~

Baby Ronan | Newborn | San Clemente, CA

- Meet Ronan Andrew -

This little guy is just 10 days old! Big brother Radek, and big sister Reagan joined in the fun too - with no shortage of personality!    

I loved Ronan's delicate, little hands, powder blue accessories, and little button nose. Congratulations to Erica and Brian with this beautiful addition to your family. Thank you for choosing me to photography your little cuties!


Penny Jane | Portraits | Redondo Beach, CA

Meet Penny Jane! This little miss in her sunshine yellow dress, teeny tiny pink shoes, and loads of personality was so much fun to shoot! Her Auntie Heather thought it would be a good idea to surprise Penny's mom and dad with some pictures for Penny's 2nd birthday, it was a wonderful play date! 

Penny is one smart cookie, and I wanted to capture her love of books and her cute pup, Lucy. Fun fact, that pinky up was all her! 

We took a field trip to the park, and finding a little patch of tiny white flowers was the perfect place to photograph a little Penny party full of pinecones, running, and giggles!
