When I found out my buddies, Mike and Nina got engaged, my first thought was that I just HAD to photograph them. They are both so freakin cool and are always inspiring me with their wild adventures. And when they aren’t traveling, they live in this sweet Venice Beach pad, just a block from the boardwalk! My goal was to keep it real and document this rad couple just being themselves. Their babe, Bijoux, also joined us on our sunset adventure.

If you don’t believe in fairies or magic, I am pretty sure that hanging with these sisters would change your tune. Both of these beauties glow with creativity and compassion and are also best friends. It was quite inspiring getting to photograph them here in Topanga Canyon (Claire’s bedroom in an Airstream! YES!) surrounded by all of their rescued animals.
You may remember Sam and Finley from our shoot together last year. Well, I was totally in love with that session and just KNEW that I had to do another one when I found out Sam was expecting babe #2. It was such an honor getting to document some of their last days as a family of 3 in and around their home here in Topanga Canon.
I always feel so honored when I get to photograph a new babe as these sessions are always full of such magic, adoration, newness, and PURE love. This shoot, in particular, made my heart melt into a puddle – mainly due to big brother and all of his little snuggles & kisses. I mean, how sweet is he!?
