Big Bear Wedding and Elopement photographer

These two braved an afternoon that went from chilly to downright freezing in the matter of about 10 mins flat. We might be a bit spoiled down the mountain with our winter temperatures, but those winter afternoons in Big Bear can get coldĀ fast!

Thanks for being troopers through this cold you two. Your sweet love for each other is SO fun to witness!

In Home Newborn Session. Los Angeles Newborn Photography

Being able to photograph my past wedding couples is one of my favorite things. I feel so fortunate to get to spend another session with my couples as they embark on their next major life milestone.

Weddings are full of SO many emotions, we’re rushing to make everything happen on time, families are there, there’s a hustle and a (literal!) bustle and just so much magic in the air as two people formally and publicly promise themselves to each other.

A newborn session definitely has the same magic – and while there are some nerves and some bustling – there’s so much more downtime. Newborn sessions are slow. They are hurry up and wait. They are swaddling, and rocking, and shhhhh-ing as we try to get a sweet babe to sleep. They are often about two hours long, but honestly about 20 minutes of shooting. It’s SUCH a beautiful way to slow down and capture such a beautiful next step in a couple’s life. I feel so lucky to get to be almost a fly on the wall as I watch two people dote on their newest little addition.

And of course, I love photographing newborns at home – because duh – we get some puppy time too!

 

Lavender Marketplace and Workshops Wedding. Jamie + Michael. Sierra Madre Wedding photography

This day was a breeze, and such a joy to capture. The bride radiated beauty, and the couple had that effortless air. They choose a perfect venue to go with their laid-back vibes, which made for the perfect garden party backdrop. Lavender Marketplace and Workshop miiiight be my favorite new spot, with garden to drool over, oaks trees that make my heart sing, and the seriously show-stopping greenhouse. Not to mention flowers cascading all around, plenty of spots to tuck away into for pictures, and THE lounge set-up from Circa Rentals. Also – their farmtables from Circa were the same ones my husband and I had at our wedding, so fun!!

Jamie and Michael thank you for being so lovely and such a dang pleasure to photograph! I wish you guys nothing but happiness! And, I thank you for all the inspo, as suddenly I’m itching to plan a 5 year vow renewal šŸ˜‰

Newborn Wilder. At Home Newborn Pictures Pasadena CA

This little guy was on his absolute best behavior for his newborn session. Such a sweet and sleepy little peanut, he basically slept the. whole. time. Even with the pups running around on the bed! I love getting to shoot newborn pictures in the comfort of home, but I especially love it because I get to see your pups too! It also helps this little dude had the most beautiful nursery with THE best natural light. Wilder, you are perfect, and we are all so very excited to watch you grow!

Waiting on Baby Boy – Riverside Maternity Photographers

First and foremost – Rooster, pictured below, just turned the big 3! So, happy birthday Rooster! He isĀ theĀ sweetest pup, SO happy, and so full of love, and is just the best big brother!

And then – really – could these three (ok, kind of/soon-to-be four) BE any cuter? I seriously don’t think so. We ventured over to one of my favorite spots overlooking Riverside for this maternity session, and the sunset did not disappoint. It somehow went from golden sun, to sweet moody blue clouds, and then a quick little pop of pink. I love everything about this session basically, and always love getting a good excuse to catch up with my past bride and grooms!
