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!

Little Ruby {Culver City Children’s Photographer}

Oh Miss Ruby, how I loved chasing after you during our photo shoot…

Miss Ruby has big beautiful eyes and the most infectious giggle!

I love her little toothy grin too.

Ashley and JuanCarlos, you are truly lucky folks; you have the most wonderful family.

Can’t wait to photograph you again!

Bella Elysee {Manhattan Beach Photographer}

I met up with Bella in Manhattan for our shoot on a beautiful

SoCal afternoon. We took to the streets of Manhattan Beach and had a great time shooting!

Bella is a beautiful and multi-talented young lady! She can sings, dances, kicks butt in karate and

had me laughing the whole shoot! Our afternoon was a success in updating her headshots for her modeling portfolio.

Thanks Bella, I hope to see you up on the silver screen and in the glossy pages of my magazines soon!
