Vice family Downtown LA family photos

I say it all the time but I have the best clients. I photographed Libby and Tom’s wedding 10 or so years ago and now several family shoots later we get to go hang out have fun and take photos around downtown LA. I love my clients that go for something a little different and fun and I just adore these family photos. downtown losangeles family photos0435 Vice family Downtown LA family photos

Haas Family portraits at Paramount Ranch

I love so much about this family portrait shoot. I havbe been shooting the Haas family since their wedding and now both boys from the time they were born. We always have a great time and it is so great to follow the lives of one of my wedding couples and catch up with them through the years. Secondly Paramount ranch is such a great location for kids and photos. They get to run around and play within the ghost town and I get awesome backdrops to use for the shoot. So many great images it is hard to narrow it down. Look through my blog and you will see Luke and Liam through the years. Could they get any cuter.

The Otto Family… Holiday photo time!

The Otto’s are my friends.. which strangely makes it harder for to photograph. You wouldnt think so but for whatever reason it is. I think it is hard to switch to work mode with friends. Luckily I shot Yvonne and Stefan’s wedding many years ago so I was able to pull it off.

So many many great ones it was hard to narrow down. I pulled Chloe and Sophie aside at Marshall High School in Silverlake, where we both live. I kicked the parents out and bribed them with lollipops but hey it all worked. How adorable are these. The just for fun a few graffiti wall shots of the whole family.

Haas Kid and Family Photos

One of the things I love about being a wedding photographer is having a chance to continue the relationship and chronicle the milestones of peoples lives. I shot Avi and Ben’s wedding years ago, now I have been able to document their boys through their various stages of life. I LOVE these images, I love the playfulness and simple beauty. I love that it shows the reality of the kids and family, the personalities and not just the glamorized version of it. Doesn’t hurt that they are all so photogenic. Look around the kids section and you will see how Luke and Liam have grown.

Roan at Paramount Ranch

I had been dying to check out Paramount Ranch in Malibu Hills for a while now. It is a great place for a family  or engagement shoot. So I packed up the family with our friends Jackie, Maggie and Roan and headed out for a picnic. Meanwhile I took these great shots of their family.

Kid Portraits from my photo booth

This weekend I sent up a photo booth at a friends craft fair. It is a bunch of local artists selling some amazing goods. I took photos of the kids and families and it was a great time. These are just a few of my favorites. What I love is the intensity and naturalness the kids. I love that hey are in this very stark and formal setting with their dirty faces tousled hair. I might do this more often so I will send out updates for the next mini portrait session

Baby Amelia 13 days old, Newborn photoshoot

It has been a newborn photo kind of month. All of these winter babies being born and I am having a blast shooting them. Baby Amelia is 13 days old and so sweet and easy, her parents are so blessed and have some great times ahead of them. Amelia’s mom, Jennifer, is Italian so yes she is in a pasta bowl lounging in front of the canals of Venice, well at least a painting of Venice. As usual it is so hard to narrow down all of the cute ones but here is a taste.
