Cicada Millenium Biltmore Downtown Los Angeles Wedding_0037.jpgI don’t think the smiles left their faces all day long.  Erika & Ernest are quite clearly crazy in love with each other and so thrilled to be tying the knot.  They grinned and they laughed and they acknowledged how happy they were to be in this together.  These two are just the sweetest and I am thrilled to have been part of their beautiful day!

Erika & Ernest – Thank you so much for including me!  You two are a breath of fresh air and your wedding day couldn’t have been more perfect!  So many congratulations to you both!

Surf and Sand Laguna Beach Wedding_0068.jpg

When two people are this pretty on the outside, it’s so amazing to find out that they are even more beautiful on the inside.  Marisa & Greg are two of the most genuine, generous and amazing people I’ve had the pleasure of photographing.  They are absolutely real, down to their core, and their love for each, for the family and for their friends is unparalleled.  These two are incredibly special and documenting their Surf & Sand wedding was a dream!

Marisa & Greg – I have no doubt that Saturday was the beginning of a very long marriage and that you two will be there for each other at every turn.  I am so happy to have been a small part of such an amazing day.  So many congratulations to you both!

Since having a little one myself, I’ve fallen even more in love with newborn sessions.  I think they’re oh so important, because that little baby will never change so quickly again in their entire lives.  They go from a tiny little squish to a babbling toddler before you can finish blinking.  Those first few weeks are so tough and so sweet and capturing all of that is such an amazing part of my job.

But it’s especially amazing for me to see couples taking this next major step in their lives when I was there for other major steps!  Nicki & Matt were married a few years ago at Bacara, one of my favorite weddings to date!   And now they’ve welcomed Nathan into the world.   He’s so tiny and so handsome… a perfect little model in his first photoshoot.  I’m over the moon for these three!

Nicki, Matt & Nathan – Thank you for inviting me to document your milestones. The three of you together make my heart melt, I’m so happy for you guys!  Congratulations!

Rustic Country Engagement Session_0018.jpg

As my day is dictated by an 11 pound writhing little pink person, I’ve definitely juggled my work flow to be a little more efficient.  Sadly, blogging is getting pushed to the very end of the priority list and this poor little corner of the internet has been so ignored lately.   I’ll make this quick, before the little one wakes up for more cuddle times!

Shaun & Ashley – you two are pretty fantastic and I had such a beautiful afternoon getting to know you better!  I couldn’t be more excited for you as you take this next step.  So many congratulations!

Newborn Session_0020.jpg

I can’t believe it’s been three months. Whew, they aren’t kidding when they say that time will fly by and she will grow up so quickly!  McCarty Rhone Hazel was born May 21, weighing 6 lbs 6 oz and measuring 18 inches.  It was all super crazy and I wrote about her early arrival on my personal blog.  Those first few months all seem like a blur.  There was so much going on and we were just trying to take it all in before it changed again (it all changed every day!)  But we’re so lucky, McCarty is a great little baby and we’re having such a great time learning all about her!

But, since it was all such a blur in those early days, I am sooooo glad my friend Heather came over to shoot these images of the three of us.  I had obviously planned on doing a newborn shoot.  I think they’re so important.  But, I never got around to planning one.  I thought I had a few weeks to get all that in order, but our little one was early and I didn’t have any time to do anything!   And then she was here and the idea of getting dressed and made up seemed crazy.   I was so swollen.  I couldn’t walk.  I didn’t have anything to wear.  My whole body was just puffy and I felt like a hot mess.  But Heather reminded me of how short this newborn phase was going to be and how much McCarty was going to change in just a few short weeks.  Oh man, she was right.  McCarty changes daily and today I can just vaguely remember that tiny sleepy little person that she was just three short months ago.  I’m so glad that we have these beautiful and timeless photos that include all three of us before she started to grow up.  I’m so happy that I took a bit of time to wash my hair and put on makeup to feel a little bit like a normal person in those weeks when I was really upside down.  And while I still remember the absolute crazy mess that I felt I was, these photos will remind me of the beauty and magic that a newborn brings into your life.

So, email your photographer long before you think you’re going to have that baby and pick out a flowy dress that will accommodate that rapidly changing body and just do it.   Because you won’t ever get that time back, and documenting it is oh so important!  While today you might just see the sleepy eyes and swollen body, in the not-so-distant future you will see the tiny person and the enormous love that just rocked your whole world.

Heather – thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you!  This session will be cherished forever and I can’t wait to show McCarty how much she was loved from day 1!   You are an angel and I appreciate you so much.  Love you darling!
