Meet 14 day old newborn: Max

Posted by on Oct 15, 2009 in .Families., .Little ones. | No Comments

I photographed Rebecca & Zack’s wedding December 20, 2008. NINE months later…. their precious newborn son, Max, arrives into this world. I LOVE newborn photoshoots. Our favorite shots were the photos from the bed. Which is your favorite image?

This is the first photoshoot session out of the series, “Year in a Life of a Baby” they are doing with me. I’ll be photographing Max when he’s 3 months, 6 months and 12 months. It’s amazing to see how quickly baby’s grow and to document this important year of their life is simply timeless– well, at least I think so.

CONGRATS to the Blunt Family. Can’t wait to see you again in 3 months!

6 months old Brett giggles, "Happy October!"

Posted by on Oct 15, 2009 in .Families., .Little ones. | No Comments

The Wilson family, with Brett being the rising star, was my first out of 6 photoshoots during my recent 7 day visit to my home city of Seattle.  It was a perfect, autumn day with sweet light and vivid colors. I love this time of year in the great NW when the leaves change colors. So pretty and the air is so crisp. I was lucky all week to have sunny days, especially for being in Seattle during October.

I’ve known Brett’s mom, Casey, for nearly 15 years! It is so special to me to see her with a sweet, little boy and a loving husband. I had a great time capturing them, and especially loved the pumpkin hat in honor of Halloween!  I just can’t get over how cute Brett is.

Here are some of my favorite images from our session:

Twins: Isabella & Cristiano

Posted by on Oct 15, 2009 in .Families., .Little ones. | No Comments

Getting the chance to photograph twins is always a special treat to me. The Trias-Ruiz family are so sweet. Isabella and Cristiano, 6 month old twins, are already letting the world know how different they really are. Cristiano seems to love attention and is more prone to show is smile, whereas Isabella is a little more camera shy with her darling personality. I also managed to grab some shots of Bruno, their awesome looking Bulldog.

I had a great time capturing everyone…

Congrats to Manny & Marissa for their new and amazing family!

Meet Alexandra at 3 months old

Posted by on Aug 27, 2009 in .Families., .Little ones. | 3 Comments

On July 2, 2006, I photographed Tasha & Kyle’s wedding in Leavenworth, WA at the Mountain Springs Lodge.

Three years later…   I am capturing their adorable 3 month old daughter named Alexandra in my home in Los Angeles.

During this awesome photo session, Tasha and I discoverd we both knew the words of some French Songs. We were signing them to Alexandra to make her giggle and it worked!

“Oooooooh, Alouette, gentille alouette”……. then to “Frère Jacques, Frère Jacques” ….. Oh, this brings me back to French Class in high school and college.

Alexandra is full of expressions.  What a fun age to photograph. She’s a cutie-pie and I am looking forward to watching her grow.  I’m so honored that Tasha & Kyle has kept me in their family as their photographer!

Here are some of my favorite images from our photoshoot:

Family photoshoot series with Harold, Thanda and cutie-pie Skye

Posted by on Jun 20, 2009 in .Families. | No Comments

Meet Harald, Thanda and Skye! Last November, I went to their beautiful home in Marina Del Rey and had so much fun taking photos of them in their backyard. I loved the zen-like elements, from the architecture & bamboo to the furniture Harald made. And, little Skye was such a little personality- so sweet! A few weeks ago, they said it was time for another shoot (they had that nice post-vacation glow from Hawaii!) and I was absolutely thrilled that I was going to get the opportunity to see them again.  This time we hung out on the beach where we splashed in the water, took walks on the beach and played on the ‘KEEP OUT’ Lifeguard Tower. hehe…   Rules are made to be broken, right? Also, this is my first time using my new watermark logo.  YAY!!! I am so happy with Danielle Amato’s design work. She comes from my favorite design firm in Seattle- GIRVIN Below are samples from both shoots. (and the music web-galleries) June 14, 2010 – at the beach November 8, 2009- Backyard of their house
