Baby Photography in La Canada / Pasadena

Monday, August 27th, 2012

I love babies! And little Amelia was no exception.  I just loved her frilly skirt and gummy smile.  Here is her nursery, which I think her parents decorated beautifully.

Amelia kept posing with her hand behind her head.  I think she was trying to model for us.  It was hilarious!

I know all about the addiction with Sophie the Giraffe.  My boys loved this teether.

La Canada Newborn and Family Photography

Thursday, January 26th, 2012

I was so excited when Sarah asked me to return to photograph their newest addition (check out their first session HERE).  They had JUST moved into their new home in La Canada, and I know how hard it is to move with a newborn.   Much less have your house put together for pictures.  AND look absolutely amazing for having a weeks old newborn!  And did I mention that she has 4 kids 3 and under?!?!  Jeesh!  I wish I was as amazing as Sarah.

The 3 “big” kids were so helpful and well-behaved.  I think they have a thing or two to teach my 3 boys.

This is the first year I will be offering mini sessions at Eaton Canyon in Pasadena.  This location is so different than Recreation park in Monrovia, I wanted to show you an example from a recent shoot at Eaton Canyon.  This is my friend, Candice, and her family, which I just shot last week for her maternity pictures.  I love the light!

Santa Monica Pier and Beach – Maternity Photography

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

Last summer, I had the opportunity to meet Ros-Ana, Leo and Camilla at the Santa Monica Pier to take Ros-Ana’s maternity photos and some images of their family of 3 before the baby came.  Both Ros-Ana and Leo are from Venezuela and grew up close to the beach, so it was a special for them to have their pictures done at the beach.  I always love it when clients pick locations that are special and meaningful to them.

First, we played a little bit on the swings, so Camilla could get some energy out.

Camilla was so excited for the new baby to come.

Camilla was definitely a firecracker and total ball of energy.  I love it!

I love this mural on the Santa Monica Pier, but we had to take it quick because the security guards came and asked us to leave.  Oops!

So we headed to the lifeguard stand for a few.
