For a while, it seemed like the weather god was just not participating for Annie and Jason’s engagement session. How is it that sunny Southern California kept anticipating rain during spring?! Haha, but really, everything turned out just fine for their session. In fact, better than fine. We wandered around El Matador Beach in Malibu and these guys just oozed romance. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding this summer!
Love was in the air when I photographed Heidi and Carlos, and rightly so as they were a few months away from getting married! We photographed their Los Angeles engagement portrait session at Kenneth Hann Park, a beautiful, and rather large park that overlooked the city once you get up top (you’ll see once you get to the end of the post).
These photos were actually taken a few months ago, and since then, they’ve tied the knot! I can’t wait to show you the photos from their wedding soon!
As much as I love frolicking in the meadows and getting sand in between my toes (and in every crevices of my camera backpack), I love a good photoshoot in the home. It’s such a warm and cozy environment, and it’s truly and utterly you. In this case, the L family. With the help of big sister Reese, we were able to get some really cute photos of Tomàs just days after his birth <3
Rakhi and Anjun are expecting their first baby, and we all know the baby is going to be so cute! We spent the session wandering around the park, and although the park has some amazing backdrops, these parents-to-be make them look even better, don’t you think!? Rakhi sure has the mommy glow going on! I love that she wore a flowy outerwear that we were able to incorporate into the shoot to add some romantic dramatization. It was such an honor to be their Los Angeles outdoor maternity portrait photographer!
When Jennifer reached out to me for a Pasadena family photographer to photograph their family portraits during the holiday, she had mentioned that all of her family members were from all over the country and the holidays were the one time every year that everyone comes together. It was amazing to photograph three generations in one park, and see how their family tree blossomed into.
Fun fact: the three kiddos in the bottom photo were born just a month apart!
It blows my mind when I realize just how fast time flies. Believe it or not, Jamie and Randy were one of my very first wedding clients back when I first started Paper Ban Photography. They originally had a wedding in Hawaii and I had the honor of photographing their second wedding in Los Angeles for those who couldn’t make it to the islands. Then, after photographing the maternity session for their first child, the newborn portraits for their daughter Reese, and then her first birthday party on Halloween, we met up once again for their second maternity portraits.
Seeing how big Reese has gotten since the last time I saw her was also a ‘pinch me’ moment on how precious time is! Time seriously goes by SO fast!
