Are you crazy? It’s only August! {Holiday portrait photography}

It’s been waaay too long since I’ve posted anything!!! My apologies!

It’s been a fairly busy, and super hot summer here in the South Bay.

Now that August has arrived, it’s slowly time to start planning out my holiday season. I know, I know, you think

“You’re crazy! It’s only August!” well, yes and no one wants to rush through the late summer fun but planning

out my holiday specials and designing holiday cards takes time, effort and creativity!

In this past week already, I’ve booked multiple holiday sessions for late September and October. These clients

know how hectic the season can be, and the last thing that anyone wants to wait until the last minute to do, is send out holiday

cards! I have some clients who send out their cards the day after Thanksgiving. I know, just typing Thanksgiving seems like

it’s a million years away, but once the kiddos get back to school, and you get back into your regular routine, Halloween is

right there, ringing your doorbell greeting you with not only a big “Trick or Treat!!!” but also a ‘hey, we are way into fall here,

turkey day is around the corner, then BOOM! Holidays!!!’ Don’t get caught with your jaw dropped thinking,

“Wasn’t it just August a minute ago? WHY DIDN’T I PLAN AHEAD????!!!”

If you’re thinking this is the year, this is the year you’re going to be ahead of the game, you’re going to cruise right

on through this holiday season, stress free, smiling while you’re tree is trimmed, gifts are wrapped holding your

super awesome wintery Pintrest inspired drink in your hands, while your kids are baking those fabulous

cookies you pinned to your Pintrest WIN board, then you should contact me ASAP. Let’s get at least

one thing crossed off that crazy mental list you have going in your head.

But just in case you don’t plan ahead, I’m here for you. I’ll be here to photograph your kiddos, families, pets and anyone else,

and make sure you get your holiday gifts and cards on time.

Love at El Matador Beach {Los Angeles Engagement Photographer}

We all met up on a blustery afternoon at El Matador-my absolute favorite beach-for N and M’s engagement session.

Once we got used to the wind whipping around are faces, we had a blast shooting.

What’s a little sand in your face when you have such an awesome couple?!?

And oh my goodness, LOOK AT HER DRESS!!! I want it. I wanted it then, and I told her I might just have to rip it off her

and run away with it…although I didn’t, but I wanted to.

Katy ❤️’s Manny {Los Angeles Engagement Photographer}

…oh.my.goodness….

These two are awesome!!!

Katy and Manny are getting married later this year and asked me to shoot their engagement portraits. We met up on a quiet Sunday afternoon at Tongva Park in Santa Monica for the first half of our shoot. We were a bit hesitant due to the weather, it rained that morning, but we decided to go for it, and thank goodness we did!

I love shooting at this beautiful new park, Santa Monica really did a great job with this one, great landscaping, fabulous trees and flowers, all make for a lovely shoot.

After Tongva Park, we headed over to LACMA and played in the outdoor display “Urban Lights”.

However, it was PACKED! I had no idea how busy it would be on a Sunday evening…anytime I drove by was super late and empty. Live and learn. We ended up going back the following Tuesday night so we could have the place to ourselves (which we kinda sorta did).

Love love love!
