1st Birthday Cake Smash! {Manhattan Beach Photographer}

I love watching a little one navigate their way through their first cake. They’re not quite sure what to do at first, why everyone’s starting at them, why they’re allowed to make a giant mess, and oh-my-goodness, what is that delicious sweet heavenly taste?!?!
SUGAR!!!!

Sometimes some kids take some time getting into cake, some dive right in. Some get all their limbs involved, hair too, and sometimes some kids just have no interest….and I love every.single.minute.

If you’re thinking about having a cake smash for your kiddo, I highly recommend it! If you don’t want to get a whole cake, some places (like my favorite Torrance Bakery) will create a mini cake, or just head out to the market and get a giant cupcake…it’s going to get destroyed anyway!

Brandon had an absolute blast with his cake in the park, he dove right in without any hesitation!

Max had an amazing Farmer’s Market themed first birthday party and was a bit apprehensive at first, but then demolished his cake!

Gregg & Kayla get engaged {Proposal Photography}

Gregg contacted me asking for me to document his proposal to Kayla on a beautiful Friday evening.

He had it all planned out; they were going for a sunset cruise on a friend’s boat, I was to “hang out” at the end of the jetty in Marina Del Rey (with my non-obtusive 400mm lens), they would turn the boat just right, he would get down on bended knee and pop the question.

The days leading up to the big evening, fires were raging in San Diego. Gregg was concerned with air quality and ash, I told him it shouldn’t be a problem, but in fact, it will work to our advantage and create an amazing sunset!

And it was an AMAZING sunset!

The whole evening was perfect! Kayla had no idea what was about to happen!

Kristin & Sara Get Married {Los Angeles Wedding Photographer}

I met Kristin and Sara at a coffee shop for a wedding consult, and I instantly felt their love for each other.

They were so excited to plan their wedding, and I just knew I wanted to be part of such a momentous occasion.

Only in the past few years have same-sex couples in California been legally able to solidify their relationship by getting married.

Kristin and Sara are a beautiful testament to what true love is….

They got married in my hometown of La Canada, CA, at the Thursday Club. A beautiful venue that lent itself perfectly to such a perfect wedding.

And thanks to wonderful Rachel, who allowed us in to Descanso Gardens for the most amazing wedding portraits ever.

Descanso Gardens has such a special place in my heart, I grew up going there almost every Sunday as a child. It was blossomed (ha! no pun intended!) into the most beautiful place I’ve seen in years.

Thank you Kristin and Sara, for allowing me to be a part of, and to capture such an important milestone in your lives!

I am truly honored!
