Holiday portraits {Los Angeles Family Photography}

Holiday portraits are in full swing!

I have been loving photographing so many wonderful families this season, and in so many beautiful locations.

Some locations that we’ve been to have been my regular spots, like the Manhattan Beach pier,

but I had the good fortune of meeting this family somewhere that I normally don’t get to go…inland! Ha!

No, seriously though. I traveled out to the city of Walnut and had the pleasure of photographing

this family at Snow Creek park. OH.MY.GOODNESS.

This park with its beautiful wooden bridge, stream with actual water (a biggie in such a drought!) lovely walkways and

amazing fall foliage, this is going on my list of favs.

I have never been one for lots of props and such, generally focusing on families experiencing togetherness, and kiddos

being kiddos, but for this holiday season I have added some super cute trees with battery operated lights, and some super

cute ornaments to the mix.

I think the trees are super cute, and love how it lets the kids focus on something fun.

LOVE these kiddos, LOVE this park, LOVE the trees, LOVE ALL AROUND!

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!

Kristin & Sara Get Married {Los Angeles Wedding Photographer}

I met Kristin and Sara at a coffee shop for a wedding consult, and I instantly felt their love for each other.

They were so excited to plan their wedding, and I just knew I wanted to be part of such a momentous occasion.

Only in the past few years have same-sex couples in California been legally able to solidify their relationship by getting married.

Kristin and Sara are a beautiful testament to what true love is….

They got married in my hometown of La Canada, CA, at the Thursday Club. A beautiful venue that lent itself perfectly to such a perfect wedding.

And thanks to wonderful Rachel, who allowed us in to Descanso Gardens for the most amazing wedding portraits ever.

Descanso Gardens has such a special place in my heart, I grew up going there almost every Sunday as a child. It was blossomed (ha! no pun intended!) into the most beautiful place I’ve seen in years.

Thank you Kristin and Sara, for allowing me to be a part of, and to capture such an important milestone in your lives!

I am truly honored!
