Home for the Holidays – Brentwood Family Portrait Photography

Home shoots are the best!  And yes, this is winter in California…you can wear shorts and dresses…why would anyone leave?  (see writing at end of post)

Anyhoos, here are some of my favorite shots from last weekend.  These kiddos were so much fun to chase and play around with!

Brooklyn is calling!  I will be in New York from the end of January until April.  Trading this temperate California winter for an icebox, am I nuts?  Will I survive?  Only time will tell…

Send your NY friends my way, snow photo shoots await!

Two Dogs and a Belly – Maternity Photo Session in Los Angeles

Two Dogs and a Belly – Maternity Photo Session in Los Angeles

The lovely Barbra invited me into her home to document her growing baby bump (and her two cute doggies).  The images turned out GORGEOUS in my humble opinion :)  It still blows my mind that we can create humans within our bodies, life is pretty miraculous.

Dreamy – A Maternity Portrait Session in Pasadena

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…
