Baby William Merrell | Santa Monica Newborn Lifestyle Photographer

I really love lifestyle sessions. Like really love them. Being able to photograph a newborn or family in their space, following them around to their favorite places, doing their favorite things, is just so sweet and special. It was especially special for this family because they are moving from Santa Monica, CA to Idaho soon, […]

Baby Charlie | Marina del Rey Newborn + Lifestyle Photographer

I had such a wonderful time photographing baby Charlie and his parents in Marina del Rey. He is such a calm and content baby. I think he was about 13-days-old when we took these pictures, but by how relaxed and sweet he is in these pictures, you’d think he’s older. I love what Tara did […]

Baby Girl Aria | Monmouth, Oregon Baby Photographer

I had the opportunity to photograph one of my best friend’s little girl, Aria Isabella. She is such a happy, sweet, and beautiful baby. She is growing up fast and it’s hard to believe she was this small. Thanks Megan and Ben for letting me photograph your baby girl!

Baby Leo’s Birth Story | Los Angeles Birth Photographer

While editing these photos I couldn’t stop thinking about how pregnancy and birth is a such a miracle! I know I’ve said this before, but I love everything about it. (I can say that… I haven’t been pregnant) :) The birthing process just intrigues me. When I was in high school, I worked in the […]

These are awesome– gave me the chills:) I can’t believe you made it look like it’s natural lighting and you got the perfect angle on the pushing shot. She’s lucky to have pushed out the baby that quickly and lucky to have these photos!

Nygren Family + Maternity | Los Angeles Maternity Photographer

Natalie is one of the sweetest people I know. David is one lucky guy to have found her. We took these pictures when Natalie was over 35 weeks pregnant and usually by that time moms aren’t feeling super photogenic, but she looks radiant! I had such a great time capturing their growing family before they […]
