Ohhh, these two.  Erin & Brian are two of the most down to Earth, fun and genuine people I know.  Their engagement session was one of my favorites this year and I knew that the wedding would be even more spectacular.  I was correct! There are no two people that were more relaxed, or seemed to enjoy their wedding day more than these two.  It made for a relaxed day, full of laughter and so much heart.  Looking back over these images, makes me so happy… it was one of those days that makes me so happy to do what I do.

Erin & Brian – Thank you for such a lovely day!   You two make my job so much fun and I absolutely loved documenting  your wedding day.  I hope you’re having the loveliest honeymoon!   Congratulations!

People are really the heart & soul of Hazelnut Photography, but food is the heart & soul of me.  I love food in every way, shape and form and I was thrilled when Minh, the chef at Gaji contacted me about shooting this brand new restaurant.  A little shooting of the interiors, a bit of their beautiful dishes and then A LOT of me eating every single plate.  I left so full… in my heart and in my stomach.

So, make yourself a reservation next time you’re heading downtown.  It was delicious!

Oh, and here see a lovely writeup with some of my images on Eater LA (one of my favorite blogs!)

Meeting the babies of my past wedding clients is such a thrill for me!  Being there when a couple takes the step into marriage is beautiful and rewarding.  But, documenting this next major step in their lives, that is incredible.   It’s sweet and tender and oh so beautiful.

Elvira & Carlos were married in 2010 at Union Station.  It was a lovely event full of so many details and Elvira has definitely not lost that touch for the little bits that make life so interesting.  Their shoot was simple, but with the small touches that make it absolutely perfect.  Their son Mateo is so much fun.  He’s playful and inquisitive… and those eyes!   They just melt your heart!  Olivia is just two weeks old.  She’s tiny and sweet and smells like a perfect little newborn.  She was the perfect little model and put up with all of our posing… except for that GORGEOUS flower crown (thanks so much Instyle Blooms!), that she didn’t really enjoy all that much.

Elvira, Carlos, Mateo & Olivia – Congratulations to the four of you!   Your family is so sweet and I’m so happy to have met the two newest additions… they are absolutely perfect!   Thank you so much for a great shoot!

Oh those Buccolas!   I am impressed that they put such an importance on getting the whole family in front of the camera every single year.  I just have the one husband and getting him to cooperate every five years or so is an enormous task.  I think these sessions are so important, especially when these kids grow and change so quickly!   I’ve been shooting these guys since Mia was just a baby.  Now she’s a little lady.  Max is such a boy.  Such enormous personalities on the two of them!   Strong and funny and kind.  It is such a pleasure every single year!

This year we returned to the Little Corona Beach, which is absolutely perfect for their sessions.  It’s a place they visit regularly, and such a part of their lives.  I learned lots of new funny faces, we searched for interesting sea animals and did a bit of splashing in the water.  It was a lovely afternoon and I’m so thankful for these sessions!

Kelly, Craig, Mia & Max – It is always such a pleasure!   To document you all every year is so much fun for me and I look forward to it every year.  Thanks guys!
