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!

Family Portraits in Manhattan Beach {Manhattan Beach photographer}

Oh my goodness how I love shooting in Manhattan! I just love the light under the pier, and the water is absolutely

beautiful! From shooting underneath, I like to head out on to the sand and let the kiddos run around, we all get to dip

our toes in the water and get to have some fun!

I feel so fortunate to have this in my backyard!

Holiday Portraits at Point Vicente Interpretive Center {Los Angeles Portrait Photography}

Since moving to the South Bay over a year and a half ago, I have visited the Point Vicente Interpretive Center many many times! Sometimes it’s just to hang out,

sometimes it’s to take a walk, fly a kite, and even do some whale watching (they even have a tally board in the height of the migrations!).

I’ve realized how absolutely stunning the views are over the bluffs, the view of Catalina Island, and that beautiful Point Vicente Lighthouse. I’m a sucker for a lighthouse, and can’t wait to

take a tour of this one!

This park is perfect for family portraits! Who wouldn’t want those views, the lighthouse, the palm trees and that warm glow of an amazing California coast sunset for their portraits?!

These are some favorites from a recent session with the G family, what a gorgeous afternoon!

Holiday Portraits at The Stonehaus Winery and Westlake Village Inn {Portrait Photography}

I have been photographing Alex and her family for over 6 years now, and each year I marvel how beautiful her girls are and how amazing they’ve become!

We met up at The Stonehaus Winery on a wonderfully crisp fall morning for portraits. I had no idea how pretty it is there! They did an amazing job with the landscaping, the

placing of the tables and benches, the waterfalls, the fire pits, and the fabulous chairs with the built in wine glass holders! From the vineyard we walked down the way, stopped in the beautiful white walkway for one

of my favorite shots, and continued on past the Westlake Village Inn and stopped at the bronze gazebo. I can only imagine the weddings that go on there! Truly, this is becoming one of my favorite locations

in which to shoot! The lake, the greens and of course the vineyard, love it all.

I can’t wait to get back there in the evening to enjoy a glass of wine by the fire.

Thanks Alex and family for an amazing shoot!

Happy Holidays to you!
