Grayson in his Fedora Hat | Huntington Beach

Posted by on Jun 28, 2011 in .Families., .Little ones. | No Comments

Aaaaah, the “First Year of a Baby’s Life” with Grayson has come to a sweet end (well, for now, until I photograph his soon to be baby brother!). He is now one years old and the shoot went great! We met in Huntington Beach where the weather and light was absolutely perfecto! Grayson wore the cutest outfit with such a suiting beach-like, straw Fedora hat. This was his first time ever at the beach, so there was a lot to explore and see…. even got a little wet in the chilly ocean at the end of our session. What a great shoot to wrap this baby series!

Meet the lovely, gorgeous couple, Saarah & Michael. This engagement shoot was perfect! The light was amazing and Saarah & Michael were total eye-candy to photograph. I met them in Santa Monica at Palisades Park before sunset to capture this special, romantic session. I’m very excited to photograph their wedding at the Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades in 2 weeks!

A special thanks to Liza Boone for assisting me.


Four Seasons, Beverly Hills | Elegant Evening Wedding {Maria & Steven}

Posted by on Jun 8, 2011 in . Weddings ., Lifestyle | 3 Comments

January 8, 2011, I had the pleasure of photographing Maria & Steven’s wedding at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills.  It was an elegant affair and I had a great time capturing all the wonderful moments. I especially loved their first glance on the hotel’s roof-top, helicopter pad. Steven jumped in the air in pure excitement to see his beautiful bride. It was memorable and special!

A special thanks to Kelly Demaray of Demaray Events for introducing me to Steven & Maria and for doing such an amazing job coordinating this beautiful wedding. And, many thanks to Ari of Custom | Made Productions for 2nd shooting and to my wonderful, 1st assistant, Kara Snider.

Engagement Session at Malibu's Calamigos Ranch {Becca + Adrian}

Posted by on Jun 7, 2011 in .Engagements. | No Comments

Meet the adorable couple Becca & Adrian.

For their engagement photo session, we got amazing access to Malibu’s Calamigos Ranch (a big thanks to Nikki Ruskit). There were so many photo opps!  I LOVED the old ferris wheel and vintage carousel. I had such a FUN time capturing Becca & Adrian on this amazing 130-acre property. At times, while we were shooting, I would hear Jillian Michael’s booming voice in the background while filming the TV show, “The Biggest Loser!

I am thrilled to photograph their wedding in August at the Terranea Resort in Rancho Palos Verdes.
