I’ve photographed a lot of first birthday parties in Los Angeles and when it comes to the “big party day,” it can get overwhelming for the little guys. A mixed crowd of familiar + unfamiliar faces, lots of noise and a squishy sugar-y cake that is placed in front of them, expected to devour.   […]

Pink and Gold First Birthday Party | Los Angeles Kid’s Party Photographer

Gender reveal parties are the new baby shower! These parties are one of my favorite to photograph simply because there is so much action to document! Cute little decorations were hung up throughout the house hinting at boy and girl. Little Nutter Butters dipped in pink and blue were put out on platters and a […]

Gender Reveal Party | Los Angeles Event and Party Photographer

Let me tell you, destination weddings are a blast!  I joke about how I have a dorky fascination with airplanes (I mean come on, you get to eat up at 36,000ft!) so of course I was more than excited to get on an airplane to PHOTOGRAPH A WEDDING in the Dominican Republic! This tropical beauty […]

Planning a Destination Wedding: Dominican Republic | Destination Wedding Photographer

Future Farmers of America brought them together as they showed animals every summer, making their faces more and more familiar. They finally got to talking and one summer lead to another with years of dating, creating memories and looking at each other with sparkles in their eyes. The sparkles lead to their rustic barn wedding […]

Sequoia National Park | Anniversary Photos | Los Angeles Professional Photographer

Don’t worry… us photographers understand. Your engagement photo session is most likely the first professional photo shoot you’ve had since high school. A LOT has changed in that time! You’ve found your style, you’ve outgrown all that teenage acne (high-five if you didn’t have to deal with that) and you’re getting married to the love […]

How To Prepare for Engagement Photos | Los Angeles Wedding Photographer

Funny story behind this family – I photographed their wedding as a second shooter two and a half years ago up at Helwig Winery in Northern California! Although I was thrilled to see them again, I was even more excited to take their first professional family photos with their first family edition, their daughter Avery. It […]

Woodward Park Family Holiday Photos | Family Photographer | Fresno | Los Angeles

I first met Christine and her daughter Falyn when they hired me last year as their professional photographer to take their Holiday Photos. It was obvious where Falyn got her pretty looks from as she stood next to her mom and introduced herself. I had so much documenting their relationship on camera so needless to […]

I LOVE this time of year – not just for the obvious reasons, but also to be hired as a professional photographer for all the family photo sessions.

Dreamy Golden Hour Family Portraits | Los Angeles and Fresno Family Photographer

When Maggie proposed that we take her photo shoot to the infamous Venice Canals, of course I did not object! Photographing at the Venice Canals is always so fun and fulfilling with the unique architecture, bright colors and sun shining on all the wonderful vegetation. Sometimes I get swept up in all the hustle and bustle […]

Even though Lindsay and Matthew have plans to elope in the wonderful tropical land of Maui next year, I was so excited to be hired as their events and party photographer to document their engagement party at one of their favorite restaurants, Sfixio in Beverly Hills.
