Mother's Day

For her first Mother's Day Alison wanted to have a family photo session. Such a great way to document this beautiful family and not to mention the crazy love they all have for the first baby and first grandchild on each side. Those eyes those cheeks, such a sweet little guy!

Happy Belated Mother's Day out there! Thanks for stopping by!

Welcome Hannah!

I had the pleasure of meeting this sweet little family a couple of weeks ago to take some newborn photos of Hannah. I'm sure she has changed already, but I always feel so lucky to be able to capture moments when babies ares so tiny.

Welcome to the world pretty girl, you are so loved!


Growing up in a family with sisters and one brother I have always been more attune with the sisterly relationship. Recently I have had some great fun taking photos of families with boys and getting to capture the bond between brothers. The way the little ones look up to big bro shows early and is so sweet. I had such fun with the Cox brothers here are some of my favorites.

Check out the drool on this next one - gotta love it!

Thanks for stopping by, I am off on a big adventure in a few days and hope to have some amazing photos to share with you.

Also a little friendly reminder: this session was given as a gift certificate, so please let me know if you are interested in giving the gift of a photo session.


Another mini Jlooper was born just about two weeks ago and I had the pleasure of taking some photos with the Jones family once again! Jason is a designer and it shows in the details in their home, I loved every inch of it. I love this one of the proud papa, just thought I'd share while I edit the rest of the photos.

Welcome to the world Sullivan Jones! More to come soon...

Brothers in Bow ties

In the midst of all of the family Christmas card photo sessions I got to do this lovely shoot. Rather than focusing on getting that great shot for a card this Mom really wanted to document this moment in time for each of her boys milestones; 6 months, 3 years, and 5 years. I nearly squealed when I saw these knit bow ties she had for each of the boys, aren't they just the cutest. Not to mention such handsome little guys too!

A kiss from your big bro, that is pretty sweet. Happy Holidays!


Baby Dimitri

Our good friends just welcomed Dimitri into their family and he is just the cutest, smiliest little guy! 2 months old already, but these photos were from about 6 weeks. Here are some of my favorites from our little session.

We love you sweet Baby D!

Miss Cordelia

Our tiny neighbor is about to turn ONE, so we took some photos to commemorate her cuteness. This family lives just a couple doors down from us and it has been so fun to watch Cordelia grow into the most adorable little one year old. I love all the props they brought for the shoot, such great additions to the photos.

Thanks for stopping by to check out the latest. I have a couple of spots left for shoots before the holidays so shoot me an email or give me a call to get something scheduled. 310.308.5575


I haven't yet edited all the Jones family photos, but I have to share this little series of Liam - isn't he the cutest!

These were taken in sequence; I don't know if we even discovered what he was so interested in but I love the expression. Not to mention the little vest!

I love this location we tried out, more urban with lots of interesting doors, plants, fences, and building facades that look great in the photos. I had such fun with this adorable family and will share some more later this week. Thanks for stopping by!


Baby Knox

I had so much fun taking photos of Mr. Knox, not only is he the son of some of our closest friends, he is such a cute smiley guy! What a little champ he was letting me snap away without any fuss. He is 5 months now, but here are some photos I snapped when he was just a couple of weeks old - my how he's grown!

And now so big, alert and happy!

Knox is half Texan, so we of course had to get some photos of him on his longhorn rocker!

And in his cowboy hat.

Knox is lucky enough to have a phat nursery designed by Andrika King of Nursery Notations.

Taking baby photos in the nursery is great so when you frame them and put them up they coordinate perfectly.

Lots of Love to you Knox, I look forward to watching you grow.

Photo Booth

We set up a little photo booth at a 1 year old birthday party and it was quite fun. Some of the results are so great! This is a perfect way to capture your guests at a party and create lasting memories. Silly props and a cool backdrop plus some willing party goers makes for great photos.


I'd love to help you create a fabulous photo booth for your next party.

Baby Connor


I had such fun meeting baby Connor last weekend. Such a cutie and man did he do great while we called his name, wiggled his little dog Blue and snapped away. He just loves to make cute little fists and it was great to capture his little 7 week old personality.


Stay tough Mr. C!  until next time...


the AVA sessions

You first met Ava inside her mommy's tummy then saw her infant shots here and YES she is still a little angel baby now 5 months old and growing up quick. I took these of my little niece Ava up at my Mom's house in Ojai on Monday - such a lovely day!

Such a little sweetie - we caught her cute smile! We have to snap away now before she can squirm and run like her sister and cousins.

Since I grew up in Ojai in the late 70s and 80s the style of filter on these seems particularly Ojai to me!

Angel Baby

My little niece has arrived and she will have a very well documented life as I hone my photography skills. So loved and so sweet!

Welcome to the world little one, we love you!


This is just a teaser as I get to take photos of the whole family in just over a week, but here is little Quinn. Only 2 1/2 months old and so much character already.

Is it wrong that this crying one is one of my favorites? He hung in there for a bit, but let us know when he was done!

Baby William

I had the pleasure of taking some photos of the adorable and chunky baby William today. There is nothing better than a baby with rolls! He was such a trooper, he didn't even fuss once. Here are a few of my favorites.

A little love from Big Sis!

And Mama too.

I'll leave you with a cute little toosh and some baby drool.
