Fine Art Friday: Sail {California Fine Art Photographer}

On a day when the wind is perfect,

The sail just needs to open

and the world is full of beauty.

Today is such a day.  ~Rumi

Fine Art Friday: Mono Lake {California Fine Art Photographer}


“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.”

-John Muir


The Eastern Sierra region of California is one of my favorite places in the entire world.  Mono Lake is in the backyard of John Muir’s stomping old grounds, Yosemite.  Her ancient tufas rise out of the water, reflecting on the surface like an electrocardiogram, seemingly measuring the electrical activity of the very heart of the Sierras.  It’s a beautiful, serene, magical place that truly does give strength to the soul.

Tufas of Mono Lake cast a perfect reflection on a smooth blue lake.


Fine Art Friday is a continuing project with a collective of amazing photographers.  The last Friday of each month, we post a fine art image and link to one from our group.  Click over to see  Albuquerque Professional Photographer Laura Meek’s image for January.

Matilda Jane {Los Angeles Photographer}

Once again, I had the fun opportunity to photograph an outfit from the Paint-by-Numbers Matilda Jane Clothing collection!

My sweet-as-can-be and cute-as-a-button model had a blast playing and posing at the park in the Turtle Dove Knot Top over the Stippling Tee and Gallery Leggings.  The bright and rich colors are a feast for the eyes and were the first thing we noticed about the outfit.  Then we noticed the softness of the tee and leggings — super comfy for a day of school or playing at the park, but with so much style, your girl will make a statement anywhere!

While the clothing fits very true-to-size and is perfect as-is, I’d suggest getting the Gallery Leggings a couple sizes big for maximum versatility.  The leggings are perfect in their cropped length, but would be darling as ankle-length pants.  Buying a slightly larger size lets your daughter wear them as pants and then grow into them as cropped leggings a few years later.  The Turtle Dove Knot Top is brilliant in design, letting you get a custom fit with the adjustable shoulder straps.  Super cute as a top, and would even make a sweet dress in a larger size, that can be adjusted with the shoulder straps and tie back.

Any way you size it, we give Matilda Jane Clothing two big thumbs up!

A New Addition {Los Angeles Family Photographer}

I had an absolutely amazing time with this family at their home a few weeks ago.  They recently welcomed their third boy to the family and wanted to document all the love and excitement of these days.

With two big brothers (who really aren’t all that big yet, themselves), I knew I was in for a bit of wild time.  But when this was literally the first image I took, I knew there was also magic in that wild!

Such a handsome trio of boys!

Who also happen to be sweet, kind, funny and loving, too. . .

I think it’s safe to say that this handsome new addition has landed in one pretty amazing family!

Black & White & Red & Awwwww {Los Angeles Family Photographer}

I absolutely adore the color combo mom picked for her family for this session — the pops of red are fabulous!

The subjects wearing these great colors are pretty fabulous, themselves!

I dare you to peek at this next image and not let out an “awwwwwwww”!
