After my e-session Craig and Candice’s a few months back…

filed under: Weddings

My e-session with Craig and Candice a few months back, I knew their wedding photos were going to be HOT! What I didn’t know was that the sun was going to be just as HOTt! :-) A couple weeks ago, Los Angeles nearly hit triple digits which probably made August 15th the hottest day of the year for several reasons! 😀

Although the sun was not our friend, this turned out to be an awesome wedding! If you’ve ever been around these two you have seen the way they look at each other, laugh together, and love one another. There were a lot of great moments from this wedding but my favorite has to be the bride and groom’s “First Dance” routine. The attack of the “June Bug” came in a close second. :-D. Congratulations you two! ! !

After 2 weeks of random rain and humidity, Los Angeles decided it was time…

filed under: Portraits

After 2 weeks of random rain and humidity, Los Angeles decided it was time for a heat wave that would force an early AM photo session. I spent the day with Miriam and her daughter Aspen in the Baldwin Hills area.  This was my first time meeting little Ms. Aspen and I can honestly say that her smile made it hard for me to focus. :-) I love shooting families, but I am especially fond of capturing genuine moments between a mother and her child. It was my honor to capture the memories of Aspen’s first birthday and I am looking forward to the many to follow. Happy Birthday Aspen! 😀

It all started with engagement session 5 years ago…

filed under: Portraits

It all started with an engagement session 5 years ago, now “The Melvin’s” are a family of 5! It has been an unbelievable experience to witness the growth of this family both physically and exponentially. We decided to do something a little different this time around so we spent the day in downtown LA in a more urban environment. The Melvin’s are full of personality and I thought the colors of the Art District would work perfectly to show that. Over the years I’ve seen “JoJo” grow into a very mature young man who understands his role as a big brother to Jaxon and Addison. Now Addison is too young to tell what kind of personality she will have but Jaxon has already begun to give JoJo a run for his money. We laughed, we screamed, we even J-walked a few times to show how courageous we were :-D. It is always a pleasure to shoot such a beautiful family and I look forward to seeing the growth of “The Melvin’s” for years to come!
