First Holy Communion {Manhattan Beach Photographer}

I had the pleasure of photographing two beautiful girl, who happen to be best friends, on the occasion of their First Holy Communion.   Such a special event and such a special bond they share. . . I was honored to capture it!

She’s a Star {Los Angeles Child Photographer}

I’ve been on a bit of blogging hiatus the last couple of months but what better way to come back from that than with this little cutie?!

Los Angeles Child Photographer takes a picture of a cute girl in a pink top.

When she arrived for her session with her mom, I greeted her and asked politely if I could take her picture that day.  She quickly said, “no” and buried her face behind mama’s leg, and then, less than a minute later she was sitting in front of my camera having the time of her life!  I don’t know that it can get any cuter than this. . . I just adore three-year-olds!

I typically try to keep the “sneak peeks” to just a handful of images, but in this case, I just couldn’t help myself. . . even narrowing it down to this many was tough!

Like all good three-year-olds, she had her special lovey close by, and of course we had to get some shots of them together. . .

Sweet, happy, smart, funny and quite simply a lovely little girl — what a joy for me to spend some time with her!  :-)

Matilda Jane does it again! {Los Angeles Photographer}

I recently got another delivery of an adorable Matilda Jane Clothing company outfit and headed out to have some fun with a sweet, sassy 6-year-old in the adorable duds!

When my model arrived for the shoot, she looked at the outfit and said, “Wow! This is cute enough to wear to school!”  High praise from the mouth of 1st grader!

One of the things I love about Matilda Jane Clothing lines is their versatility.  You can mix and match almost any of the pieces from a single collection into an outfit that is truly unique and just the right fit for your daughter.  Finley started with the Cloudy Puffer Tee and topped it with the Love Bug Knot Top, sporting the Sweetheart Leggings on bottom.

Not only “cute enough to wear to school,” also totally functional to wear to school.  Sweet, modest, age-appropriate, comfortable and durable. . . able to stand up to rug time, spelling test time, art time and plenty of playground time (see that huge flying leap Finley took earlier!)!

Another two great big thumbs up for MJC’s newest “Wonderful Parade” line!

Party of Five {Los Angeles Family Photographer}

This lovely family came to me via Bakersfield and a shared connection from the past!  One of my best friends is an amazing photographer — Erin Cobb — who happens to live in Alabama.  A few years ago, she headed out to the West Coast for a fun girls’ weekend in the City of Angels, squeezing in a couple of family sessions while she was here.  This party of five, long-time fans of Erin, made the trek to L.A. to get in front of her camera.  Now, two years later, it’s time for updated family photos and they made the trek back to L.A. to get in front of my camera.

It was an honor, privilege, and darn great way to spend the afternoon!

Glowing inside and out, I think you can easily see why I had such a great time with them!
