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.

Love to see them grow! {Santa Monica Children’s Photographer}

I have the best clients! Year after year I get to see them, visit, catch up and of course photograph the cutie-patooties! These boys have grown so much in the past couple of years, and this year, we have little sister joining us too!

All three of them are so full of energy, we were all pooped after the shoot!

Good seeing you guys again! See you in a few months!

Spending the day with the light of my life {Los Angeles Children’s Photographer}

For my niece’s birthday, I scooped her up and took her to Downtown San Diego to check out the New Children’s Museum.

What a great place to spend a few hours playing (and learning shhhh, don’t tell her that part, too busy playing!)

Every exhibit is a hands on experience, we painted, we drew, we climbed and bounced and had a fantastic time! Stop by if you’re ever in the area, it’s well worth it!

After the museum, we headed for lunch. And what better way to have a birthday day with Auntie, then to have blueberry pancakes for lunch!

With bellies full of yumminess, we headed to one of my favorite places in San Diego, Balboa Park. When I lived in San Diego, I would go there to hang out, check out the art museums, the photographic museum and my favorite, the Botanical Garden. Unfortunately, the garden was closed the day we went (not a problem, just another reason to go back!), so we walked around the park, played, danced and even played photographers.

I used to sit in front of the reflecting pool for hours. Niece and I sat here while we ate our ice cream, I explained to her how this is my favorite spot in the whole park. She snuggled up next to me, looked up at me and said “You’re my favorite spot”.

I was a puddle of goop after that. She could have asked my to buy her an elephant at that point and I would have!
