Oh Summer {Manhattan Beach photographer}

I am the worst at keeping up with the blog!

Here we are, already in August, how quickly that happens!!! I hope you’re enjoying your summer, the long hot days, and the wonderfully warm nights too. I hope you’ve had amazing adventures with your family and friends, I know I’ve had some amazing times with new friends in the wilderness, and enjoying time exploring locally. I even had the opportunity to foster an energetic kitten for a little bit while he recovered and learned how cushy life can be indoors.

I know we’re only in early August here, but I know some of kiddos are getting ready to go back to school, parents are rejoicing, and the routines of ‘regular’ life will soon be back.

For me in photography, this is the time I start to look forward to the holiday season (and every year it never ceases to blow my mind! I’ve been doing this for 12 years, and every year, it’s “the holidays are only 4 months away! WHAAAAT?!?).  I am beginning to think about locations for photo sessions, and I began thinking about some of my favorite locations around the South Bay.

I have lived in the South Bay of Los Angeles for over 4 years, and I fall in love with the Manhattan Beach pier with every shoot .

The pier itself lends for pretty architectural lines both underneath as well as while serving as a backdrop. Under the pier at sunset has some of the best lighting around, especially when the sun sets right through the opening….the reflections at low tide make for amazing details, and even in winter, the water lapping at your toes is incredibly refreshing!

I’m sharing some of my favorite images from previous photo sessions at the Manhattan Beach pier. If you live anywhere near, it’s pretty much a requirement to have your portraits taken there!

Christmas is around the corner! {Los Angeles Portrait Photographer}

I know you know, Christmas is next week! Can you believe how quickly it came upon us?!?!

If you have yet to find that perfect gift, why not think about a portrait photo shoot gift certificate?

There are two sessions to choose from, the Mini Session, which is a $100 30 minute quick and easy shoot in the location of your choice.

Or, the most popular session,  the Full session, a $200 1-2 hour photo shoot  at your location of choice. This session also includes a complimentary 8×10 print of your favorite image.

Photo shoots can take place at your favorite beach, park or even in the comfort of your home.

Gift certificates are available for sessions, or in specific dollar amounts that can include print credits.

Contact me as soon as possible and I’ll create a custom gift certificate!

Happy Christmas Shopping!

The light of my life {Los Angeles Children’s Portrait Photographer}

This past weekend I headed south to photograph my brother and his beautiful family for their annual holiday portraits.

We had a great location to shoot their portraits and fantastic weather!

It seems like just yesterday I was photographing my little niece for her first Christmas portraits, and now? Just look at her! She’s such a big girl!

These are my absolute favorites all time! Of course I’m a little biased, she’s the light of my life!
