Colorful Anniversary Shoot in Downtown Los Angeles

I had the best time spending the afternoon with Loren and Joe. It was their ten year wedding anniversary and they wanted to do a photoshoot highlighting their love of each other, the city of Los Angeles, and their adorable pups Lincoln and Taft.

To get that urban and colorful vibe, we headed down to the arts district with its vibrant murals. Then we stopped by one of my favorite streets to see the downtown skyline before heading to picnic in Elysian Park. The day was filled with that wonderful LA sunshine and plenty of laughter and love.

Baby Grey

When my friend Valerie asked me to photograph her little one's first birthday celebration, I was so excited. As you can see, baby Grey is vibrant and her family is the sweetest.

The party took place in Cindy's which is a diner just down the street from my house in the Eagle Rock neighborhood of Los Angeles. It's a cozy and delightful place full of color and yummy comfort food. The historic diner was renovated a few years back and I love the vibe!

It seems like just yesterday that I was doing Valerie's gorgeous milk bath maternity shoot and I can't believe that baby Grey is already one! Whenever I sit down to edit my photos, I remember why I love photography. Capturing those beautiful moments of connection get me every time. 

Dreamy Maternity Shoot

One of my favorite things about photography is the connection I feel with my subjects, and it's a truly special day when I get to work with dear friends. I'm so thrilled for Rachel + Rico and their little girl who will be arriving in the next few weeks. A stunning Rachel and I started our shoot in a soaking tub with a luxurious milk bath. I love how the the intimate setting focuses on her form.

I adore these two and the tenderness they share. It was an honor to both capture their love and this unique moment in time. This baby is going to be one lucky wee one and I can't wait to meet her! 

We found a beautiful sun drenched path in the Hollywood Hills and there was a lovely little trail with a secret garden and wildflowers along the way. It was a sweet and leisurely stroll filled with laughs and kisses.

I am so excited for these two as they enter their next life adventure together.
