Baby #2 | Family + Maternity Photographer Pasadena

She was due late May but her bebe decided he wanted to see the world sooner…May 5th!  My birthday too!  I was so very excited that we share birthdays.   Luckily we were able to get in this photo session before he made his unexpected entrance.  We had a lot of fun exploring Arlington Gardens, take a look…

Zocumentary – Day in the Life Documentary Family Session in Los Angeles

Zocumentary – Day in the Life Documentary Family Session in Los Angeles

I have been so very eager to share this day in the life session!  Today is the day!

Heidi and and her son Zoli allowed me into their home for a day to capture their typical routines, their moments together that usually go unseen by the outside world.  These moments are oh so precious and fleeting, it is a dream come true for me to do this type of meaningful documentation.

Enjoy!

Bubblemania!

Bubblemania!

I was invited to document Colin’s 2nd birthday last weekend (the cutie that can’t keep his eyes off the magic bubble solution below).  It was my first time encountering this type of entertainment at a kid’s birthday party and, let me tell ya, I’m sold.  It was even hard for me to keep my eyes off the bubbles and in my camera.  Here is their website if any LA parents are interested –

Invite me to your next bubble party so I can take more magical pictures like these!

The Runaway – A Family Portrait Session in Pasadena

The Runaway – A Family Portrait Session in Pasadena

I had an amazing shoot with Heidi and Zoli last week!  It was a photoshoot and a workout because Zoli was chasing after Trachodactyles (I believe this is some sort of dinosaur/robot/truck) and catching Pokemon.  Such sweethearts, can’t wait to shoot with them again.

I’m a little obsessed with the images from this shoot.  Magic!   Gina’s baby (Dreamer) was actually due that week, maybe it was her spirit that made this shoot extra dreamy…
