We are 3 weeks into “social distancing” thanks to Covid 19 & I hope you are all staying healthy, sane, & finding the silver linings wherever possible! It’s such a strange & uncertain time and boy do I feel lucky that my husband continues to have work, even though my photo sessions have all been on pause for the unforeseeable future.
I miss taking photos of people so much. But in the stillness, I have been feeling waves of immense gratitude (intermingled with worry & anxiety about the state of the world!) that I have a job that I actually miss. That I get to live in a place where I am able to go outside and lay in the grass.
I thought now was the perfect time to share this session of the one & only, Jessamyn, that I shot back in February in Topanga Canyon. It embodies what I have been really trying to focus on during these past weeks at home – to slow down, be gentle with myself, & to find joy in the small things.

Photographing fellow Topanga canyon dwellers is always extra special for me. Perhaps it’s because they are just as in love with this place as I am or maybe it’s just that they are usually extra down for an adventure!
On this day, I met up with this lovely trio as the sun was getting low in the sky & walked just down the road from their home to snap these photos. We took the same route that they walk so often to get to this magical location. Here are some of my faves!

Today is super rainy & cold here in LA (yaay for warm eggnog & fluffy socks!) and I thought it would be the perfect time to blog this cozy at-home newborn session!
I’ll start off by saying that meeting and snuggling this perfect little babe sent my ovaries into hyper drive. (I mean, how can newborns smell SO good?) Also, seeing one of my favorite kids as a big sister was possibly the cutest thing I have ever witnesses. The way she says “baby Rose” in that tiny voice could melt even the hardest of hearts.
I absolutely adore this family and becoming friends with and documenting their milestones over the years has been such a joy for me. It all started with their wedding a few years ago and the rest is history! Here are some favorites from our time together.
