Family Portraits Griffith Observatory

Family Portraits Griffith Observatory

A little over a month ago I met up with the Miranda family at Griffith Observatory in Hollywood for their family portrait session. We spent the afternoon exploring the grounds, taking turns telling silly jokes and creating fun images for their home. At the end of the session we worked our way down the hill and took a few more images from a nearby look out spot where you could see the observatory from a distance. Scroll on to see a few of my favorites from the session: ...

Family Portraits | La Verne, CA

I met Veronica earlier this year when she created the beautiful floral arrangements for a wedding I photographed.

We spent the evening exploring the area around us and creating beautiful images for Veronica and her family!  Here's a few of my favorite moments from that day: ...

El Dorado Park Family Photos

Last month I had the wonderful privilege of photographing the Rivera family at El Dorado Park in Long Beach, CA. We had the best time laughing, and walking through the park as we created photographs for their home! My favorite families to photograph are the ones that relax and have a good time while we're together! I loved how we had time to laugh and joke around throughout the afternoon, we got some hilarious outtakes to go with our more formal images! Check out a few of my favorite images...

We had a great time playing in the park with the little ones and made sure to take time out for an apple juice break. Check out a few of the highlights from...

Malibu Family Portraits | The Hawkins Family

Recently I met the Hawkins family on the beach for their Malibu family portraits to celebrate their parents' anniversary. It's so awesome to get to know large families like this one and celebrate their special bond. This beautiful stretch of beach in Malibu, California was the perfect spot! There were lots of cool rock formations and of course the beautiful ocean breeze! One of my favorite shots of the day was this one below when I asked the two girls to kiss their brother on the cheek! So so cute!...

Laguna Beach Family Portraits | Julie, Shawn & Noah

Not too long ago I met with Julie, Shawn and Noah for their Laguna Beach family portrait session. Like most families, Julie was really excited for family picture day, while Shawn and Noah were a bit skeptical. I reassured them that the idea was to just have a good time and in the process we'd create great images for their home. By the end of the afternoon, we'd done just that! The family had chosen this gorgeous, yet quiet little spot in Laguna Beach for their session.  The beautiful location...
