I’ve started to really love my annual tradition of taking a trip down memory lane every December as I choose some of my personal favorite photos from the past year!
I am forever grateful for the families that choose me year after year, as well as, all of the new folks I’ve had the pleasure of photographing – whether it be weddings or creative portrait sessions. I’m still so in love with shooting film & feel lucky to have so many clients who are pumped for the nostalgic goodness that analog brings to the table. I hope these photos bring a smile to your face, like they do to mine!
Another year has flown by and going through all of my shoots from the previous months has become one of my favorite rituals. I sit with a hot cup of tea, keeping warm and cozy during these chilly winter days, as I remember with gratitude all of the amazing folks that have chosen me to document their lives.
Oh 2020…what a roller-coaster of a year you have been. Starting off strong with some of the sweetest in-home sessions and then halting suddenly when Covid shut down the world. No work for months led to lots of creative brainstorming (and bread baking!) and, despite it all, I feel incredible grateful that I was still able to create love-filled images with so many of you.
I will never take hugs and smiles for granted again.
Now for some of my personal faves from the year! It was SO hard to narrow it down since I love ALL of my clients & sessions but sharing 500 photos would just be too much. haha.
Thanks for stopping by & cheers to 2021 being better than the last!
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.
Spending the morning with this family in their Los Angeles bungalow was a dream. I snapped photos as we oooohed and ahhed over how tiny and perfect their sweet boy was. Getting to watch the love pour out of new parents is such a gift. Here are some of my faves from our time together!
On a side note, the mama is an amaaazing singer/songwriter and I almost fell over when she starting singing to her babe. Here is the link to her site if you want to check her out – http://www.theanna.com/
What a pleasure it was to hang with this family in their bright beautiful home a couple months back. I have photographed them twice before but now there is a new baby brother in town that just added another level of sweetness. Here are some of my faves from this love-filled & playful sesh!
I had the honor of shooting the sweet couples wedding a while back and was beyond excited when I got the news that they were expecting and wanted me to photograph them as a family of 3! We hung around their new Los Angeles home on a cloudy afternoon, chatted, snapped some photos, and marveled the little perfect human that they made.
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!?
