It’s the time of year! {Holiday Mini Portrait Sessions}

We are technically still in summer, but just as pumpkin flavored everything has erupted everywhere, my thoughts are turning to holiday portrait sessions. I’m sure you’re thinking “the kids just went back to school, we’re still settling into our routines, no way am I thinking about the holidays”. I get it, we’re mid September. But wasn’t it just July???

The months fly by and next thing you know, it’s mid December wondering how on earth you’ll get your holiday cards out in time and maybe you’ll just do New Year’s cards (nothing wrong with that!) and why on earth didn’t you just schedule your portrait session in September?!?!?!?!

Let’s get it taken care of now, get it done on a weekend before things really get so tight that you won’t have time. With the popularity of the mini sessions last year, I’m bringing them back again this year. It’s 30 minutes of photography in a South Bay (Los Angeles!) location-El Segundo, Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, Torrance, the Palos Verdes peninsula, and even Long Beach. Those of you who have worked with me in the past know that I work quickly and we make the absolute most of those 30 minutes and you’ll receive a web gallery of proofs where you can select your favorite 15 images. I’ll take those 15 images, give them a bit of a retouch and send you the full high resolution images so you can print cards, give them as gifts and even print them to hang and display around the house.

Do you live elsewhere but still want a mini session? Call me, text me, email me, message me, and we can talk about a location that works best for your family.

The 30 minute South Bay Holiday Portrait Mini Session includes 15 full resolution images is $250.

This year I have also partnered with an amazing online card printing company, Basic Invite, and for those booking and ordering their cards in September and October, I am happy to offer 40% off your card order. Yep, you read that right 40% OFF HOLIDAY CARDS!!!!

You will receive the code in your gallery link email.

These cards are not only stunning with wonderful card stock and quality printing, but they are affordable as well!!! Woohoo!
Let’s connect and get your holiday portraits in the books, cross this off your list before you even have to add it on there to begin with.

Elena’s stunning Maternity Session {Manhattan Beach maternity photography}

I met with Elena and Kris on a super windy day in Manhattan Beach for her maternity session. This is their first little one, a girl(!) and they couldn’t be more excited. They decided that while on a baby-moon in the South Bay from the east coast, a little photo session would be a fun and beautiful way to document their trip. Elena even did some shopping at the fabulous boutiques of Downtown Manhattan Beach and picked up this stunning dress for her session. She wore it beautifully and to my surprise and insane joy, she was willing to get right in to the water! Oh my goodness, this is defintiely in the top 3 favorite maternity sessions in the 13 years of my career!

Allison and Chris at Oxnard Shores {Maternity Photography}

I love love love what I do!

When I first started my journey in portrait photography, this is exactly what I envisioned.

First comes the engagement, then comes the wedding, the maternity session, newborn session and first family portrait, next baby, family portraits, birthdays, holidays and when those babies grow up, their engagements and weddings.

With Allison and Chris, this is exactly how it’s going, and I love it!

I photographed their engagement back in 2011, their wedding in 2012, and here we are 3 years later, with the maternity session this month, and newborn session next month.

I’m loving seeing my clients grow their lives and families!

We met at Oxnard Shores for maternity portraits. This beach is gorgeous! The dunes, the grass, the wide beach all make for beautiful portraits, especially at sunset.
