One of my first few weddings that I had photographed were these guys – Carla and Andrew. They are pure sweethearts! To see them years later, and now with the addition of a new family member, little Aaron, I am in awe and honored to be able to capture these special moments in their home. It’s always surreal to me to be around newborns. They’re just so tiny! And it’s only a short matter of time before they become full-fledged people.
It is always a pleasure photographing clients on more than one occasion. When I first photographed Randy and Jamie, it was for their backyard wedding ceremony and reception. Now, over a year later, I get to witness their family grow as they welcome a new addition: Reese.
I took some shots of her bedroom, and I love how it’s decorated! It’s very beach-themed, from the anchor shelf filled with animals and fishes, the pillow with the quote “What happens at the beach, stays at the beach”, and the seafoam color scheme (with splashes of pink accents, of course!). I would love to have had this as my baby room!
We took these photographs while Reese was only a few days old. She was a small baby, so cute and cuddly! Nothing could disturb her from sleeping, and when she did wake up for feeding time, she went back to sleep after a huge adorable yawn. I’m happy to have been her Los Angeles newborn photographer!
It was SO nice to once again photograph one of my first clients – Vanessa and her family. I photographed Brisa when she was only 6 months old, and then her first year’s birthday party. We met up once more in their Hermosa Beach home for a lifestyle family portrait session to welcome their newest family addition – Trevor!
During the session, Trevor was one month old. He had eyes of curiosity and loved looking at everyone. I’m particularly curious what he thought of when he stared into my big and ominous camera lens, haha. The rest of the family joined in on the session, first wearing all white while in the bedroom (loved this concept) and then moved into the family room with brighter clothes for a more fun feel.
It’s amazing how big Brisa is since the last time I saw her. Her mother, Vanessa, mentioned how Brisa normally hates being in front of the camera. Yet, she loved being in front of mine!
A few weeks ago, I tried a new genre of photography that had intrigued me. It was a raw genre, and had to be done very photojournalistically. This genre, that’s quite becoming a thing, is birth photography.
Newborn Joelle arrived just the day after April 1st. She was a tiny littlest thing, and definitely the quietest. As I tried to keep her peacefully asleep, the house was so full of commotion of her arrival that she ultimately woke up and stayed awake. Yet, she never cried. Joelle’s eyes blinked, fluttered, and peered with wonder at all of us that ogled her.
In my previous post, I highlighted some of my favorite shots from Lethy and Mark’s in-home maternity shoot. As we get closer to the due date of Mateo, this wonderfully orchestrated baby shower is put on with the theme ‘Little Man’, filled with moustaches and bow ties!
