India and Natalia, Twins!

I was hanging out with my friends doing a photo shoot with lights and a white background when their twins refuse to take a nap and end up stripping off all of their clothes. So of course, we HAVE to put them in. How could we resist. Too cute.

Bucknam Family at the Cal Tech Campus, Pasadena

Just because the holiday season is over doesnt mean it isn’t a good time to take some family portraits. Monica and Jim gathered the kids and the grandparents as we strolled around the Cal Tech Campus in Pasadena to take advantage of the great architecture and trees they have on Campus. It is a fantastic location.

Haas Family Shoot at home

Yes it is that time of year again…family photos. I happen to love working with the Haas family. I shot Avi and Ben’s wedding and now have been shooting Luke and Liam from newborn to birthday parties and leading up to the family of four family portrait. I cant say Ben loves to get is photo taken so he is always looking for a way to ham it up. Yes that is baby Liam in an over sized spoon. (it hangs on their wall for decoration) and I love the last images where he and Luke are playing on the other side of the sliding glass door.

DeSonia family in Balboa Park, San Diego

I have a long history with Keith and Lisa, photographing them as guests of a wedding, and being passed around their group of friends shooting weddings and families. So it was my pleasure to be able to shoot them as a family as they came back to visit San Diego. I absolutely love Balboa Park and it makes for a great (and fun) backdrop for portraits. Noah was a little sceptical at first but by the end we were playing catch and he was hamming it up for the camera and being adorable with baby sister Phoebe. I think a yearly shoot should be in order whenever you guys come into town. A great excuse for me to get to San Diego or you guys to come to LA.

Last shoot of the Year. Erin, Jeff and baby Jake

I shot Erin and Jeff’s wedding a million years ago and now here we are all together with 7 mos old Jake. With this busy (and sick) time of year there were a was some rescheduling but we got it in under the wire and I hope their friends and family enjoy seeing their beautiful family. I cant wait to see these images on the wall aside their wedding photos.

and yes there is more… Holiday Portraits at Griffith Park and beyond

harris.family100 1024x682 and yes there is more... Holiday Portraits at Griffith Park and beyondI have been so busy keeping up with the family portraits for the holidays, I finally got to shoot at Travel Town in Griffith Park, which I had been wanting to do for a long time. Shhh, I am not supposed to so we did it gorilla style. It was a great backdrop for little Jake and his parents. Emma and Ayden were both shot at their home. Shooting kids would seem like your doing the same thing over and over, but let me tell you. It is ALWAYS different. But I like being kept on my toes.
