Kristen + Seth: DTLA Couple Session

A WORK/LIFE BALANCE RELATIONSHIP

Do you ever feel like you have no days off? I mean honestly that's me every dang day. As a business owner and a freelancer, I work for myself, so I make my own hours, but honestly a lot of the time it feels like I'm ALWAYS working! Kristen and Seth 100% understand the struggle of work/life balance. We took the day to focus on them and what their day to day looks like. While they both are constantly traveling, working, emailing, etc - they often get to do it together, which is awesome! That's exactly what you want in a relationship. They do definitely spend a lot of time apart as well, but they make it work and do their best to maintain a work/life balance. We spent most of the day wandering around DTLA, specifically the arts district, but we also made it back to West Hollywood for some good shots! Enjoy!

A DANA POINT FAMILY SESSION

I got to photograph one of my favorite families, the Holmes! It takes a lot to get this many people together and all in sync, but they did it and nailed their outfits! The thing they learned is to pick a color scheme, which allows everyone to wear the same color, but also mix and match patterns and shades. Enjoy some of our favorites!

Donal + Sofie: Eaton Canyon Maternity Session

A PASADENA MATERNITY HIKE

First things first - do you see Max back there?! Isn't he the sweetest?! He was so fun to have on the shoot because he was so well behaved, sweet and fun! I was beyond stoked when Donal reached out to me after our mutual friend Darren Kennedy sent him my way. Sofie was a killer mama babe! She was hiking, climbing on rocks and telling us to follow her along the craziest paths AND she still looks FLAWLESS after all of that! I absolutely loved spending the evening with these two - such a dream!

The Greenbergs: Los Angeles Family Session

A BACKYARD FAMILY SESSION

Absolutely LOVED this backyard family session with The Greenbergs. We met in the middle of the day for a quick session and the light was GORGEOUS! Grandad was there, too to join in and of course we had include their fur baby. I love sessions like this because they're already in their comfort zone and can just hang out. I let the boys play a little and have fun, but also snapped some posed photos.

Ian + Marta: Old Towne Orange Engagement Session

AN ORANGE CIRCLE LOVE STORY

Ian and Marta are one of the sweetest and funniest couples I've met. They had a couple drinks before we met up, which was definitely to our benefit because they were comfortable. I gave them scenarios to act out and taught them all about the "drunk walk" pictured above. They have such a strong connection and they honestly didn't need much direction because they were so in love. We wandered around Old Towne Orange for a bit on a busy weekend day, which of course was crowded, but the photos turned out awesome and I loved hanging with them.
