oh boy oh boy these guys are something else. talented designers, expert curators and parents extraordinaire. photographing families over time has got to be one of the best parts of my job. i shot molly + brandon's intimate wedding back in 2011 and then molly pregnant, james turning one and now as they were awaiting baby boy number 2! (he's arrived, healthy and delicious!) besides excellent hair and superb style, these parents are passing down so much love and sincerity to these little men and l.a. will be better for it. also, come on with those tiny squishy butt cheeks, right?!
one of my favorite things about this industry is the people. while many a creative field can be intimidating and cut-throat, I've always found the photography world to be full of people figuring things out together and not afraid of sharing their secrets. I meet with a fantastic group of seriously talented photo gals on a regular basis to share ideas, talk out frustrations, worry about our tax preparations. for all intensive purposes we are each other's immediate competition. but that doesn't stop us from grabbing drinks and swapping referrals and it makes me so proud. one of these fine gals, sarina cross, moved to los angeles from new york just a few months after we transplanted from ohio and a few weeks after meeting we set up a time to step out in the sunshine and in front of each other's lens for updated west coast portraits. and so, in a second act of vulnerability, i'm sharing some of my favorites (and one less flattering example of how my insides feel when I'm getting my picture taken, see if you can spot it.) i shared my images of the lovely sarina here.
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1ST
Los Angeles, it's time for some mini sessions! I'll be trying something a little different this year and I'm excited about the options.
Option 1 | DTLA STUDIO
From 10-2pm I'll be shooting at the lovely Moon & Co. in DTLA. These sessions will be 20 minutes and offer a really clean, classic but still beautiful and candid portraiture. Edited images will be added to an online image gallery from which professional prints can be ordered and you'll have the opportunity to mark your 15 favorite images and receive those as hi-res digital downloads. It's a beautiful, naturally lit warehouse with several great backdrop options we'll take advantage of and the final images will look a bit more editorial in style. examples below. $200 + tax due at time of the shoot
Option 2 | AT HOME SESSION
During the afternoon 3-7pm, I'll be offering a handful of 30 minute at-home mini sessions (must be located within los angeles county), for those that feel more comfortable shooting in their home. Edited images will be added to an online image gallery from which professional prints can be ordered and you'll have the opportunity to mark your 20 favorite images and receive those as hi-res digital downloads. These will incorporate your home environment and feel a bit more personal - afraid of shooting in your home? read this. examples below. $255 + tax at time of the shoot.

*all sessions for up to 5 people - additional $30/person.
