Monty + First Birthday

First Birthday (Dohl) | Torrance, CA

This camping themed first birthday party had me in awe the moment I arrived. It was something special when even rainy weather and overcast skies couldn't spoil the fun. In fact, they were perfect compliment. Moreover, it was clear that young Monty was absolutely loved by his family and friends. What a celebration to remember! My heartfelt thanks goes to Monty's parents for this opportunity to capture these special moments for them.

Family Session | Manhattan Beach, CA

My last family session of the year was memorable and such a blast. We had just met, but immediately found common ground in our relationship with Christ. Their smiles seemingly told stories of their journey as parents. Ups, downs, and everything in between. In the end, all is beautiful and completely worth it. Thank you for the wonderful experience of capturing these precious moments for your family. Merry Christmas and have a Happy New Year!

Growing Family | Maternity Session

Maternity Session | Los Angeles, CA

Things happen for a reason. When I arrived at the location, the park ranger had the entrance blocked and stated that the road was closed. Yes, I panicked but as it turned out we found an even better location near the base of the park and basked in the marvelous light. Now, I'm thankful to share some of the beautiful moments captured during this maternity/family session. So thrilled for this family of three, soon to be a family of four!
