One of the joys of photographing families, is that I get to see them grow! In size and in number. Little Leo is now a big brother to Mari, mom Kyrra even telling me that the first thing he said when he met her was ‘adorable’ in that sweet toddler voice. I bet that’s going in the baby book! Enjoy!

Today my sweet niece Stella is 3! As we speak we are busy celebrating at her cowgirl themed birthday party, hence the theme of her photos to mark this third year. Luckily, I have some really great friends who own a ranch and allowed us to come shoot wherever we pleased. enjoy!

It was a picture perfect Los Angeles day when I met up with these two at the beautiful Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills. Hands down my favorite location to shoot at thus far, with endless photo opportunities around every perfectly trimmed shrub and corner. What made it even better was that I got to meet Carolyn and Dave for the first time, getting to know more about them and their Manhattan Beach wedding taking place this summer. I can’t wait!

*Although I am fully booked for the 2013 wedding season, I am now booking all 2014 weddings and events! Inquires may be sent to

I just love when I get to shoot these two and they bring along all sorts of fun goodies to play with to note the particular event or season the photos were taken in. This time little Rhenn is turning two and having a Winnie-the-Pooh themed birthday. I couldn’t think of a better location than one smack dab in the middle of Pasadena with tons of trees, trails, and tall grass. We were also able to sneak in a few of big sister Riley celebrating Easter (which at the time had not yet passed).

On another note, this shoot got me thinking about return clients. Some come to me 3 and 4 times in one year! These families are so special to me and I thought as a thank you to them (and to any who want to book a minimum of 3 sessions a year) I would  offer a new multi-shoot package. These packages are great for those that want (for example) maternity, newborn, and one year (or family photos) done. How it works: the first shoot is full price, the second less, and the third even less. If you are interested in finding out more about this great deal as well as booking sessions, contact me anytime at
