South Bay In-Home Newborn Session

Newborn Session || Redondo Beach

From the tiny two week old toes to the sweetly decorated nursery, this newborn session had us "ooing" and "awwing" the whole time. I mean, who else forgets how itty bitty a two week old is?! They are so TINY and the cutest little humans ever. Add a pup and a sweet sister and it makes it that much more adorable. 

Anne & Pete, your family is beautiful and so sweet. Thank you SO much for letting us be a part of this incredible time in your lives! You both were rock stars for handling a toddler, a 2 week old, and getting yourselves ready for the shoot! We wish you both the best in this new chapter of being a sweet family of 4!

Baby Larkin

Newborn Session || Southbay

Well this little squish completely melted our hearts! We had to force ourselves to stop taking pictures of her after awhile because we just could NOT stop. She was absolutely precious. And those tiny little toes!! She was only a week old & so itty bitty and perfect! Also, she stayed asleep the whole time like a champ! Don't know what mom and dad are talking about with the whole not sleeping thing?! Juuuuust kidding ;)

Linehan Family + Cake Smash

Family Session || Palos Verdes

We loved taking Tim, Chloe & little Matty's family photos! 

We've known Tim & Chloe for many years - ready for a whirlwind backstory? Ellis & Chloe have been best friends since middle school. In high school they started dating brothers, who they have since married, which now makes Ellis & Chloe besties-in-law!  Meanwhile, Jenny also married her high school sweetheart who just so happens to have grown up down the block from Ellis & Chloe's husbands and, as you probably guessed it, have been childhood friends long before we even came into the picture. 

Phew. Was that enough information for ya? Don't worry, we're still processing too. :)

Now, fast forward to a couple of weeks ago and Jenny & Ellis took Chloe & Tim's son's ONE YEAR OLD PHOTOS. Crazy! This family session was an absolute joy & honor to photograph. We are blessed by their friendship and so excited to watch little Matty grow up (who is 5 weeks younger than Jenny’s son, Jacob!). Also, Matty and his cake smash, takes the cake for all-time-fave moment to photograph.... pun intended :) 

Chloe is such a devoted momma and has started a blog where she shares all of her mommy wisdom and stories. If you have not checked it out yet, she's amazing and worth your while. Her blog is http://shelovesalatte.com and her instagram handle is @chlobows, check her out!

Paul + Jenny + Jacob

Family Session || Palos Verdes

This session was near and dear to our hearts because it was Jenny's family!! Jacob was about to turn one which was a good reminder that they were due for some family photos! This session was an entertaining one with Ellis' husband, Johnny acting as her assistant. He did a great job ;)... It didn't help that Jacob was calling out "ball" & "bite" of cheerios every other photo so it was definitely fun going through the raw images. There were some cute ones where Jacob had a big grin and when you scrolled to the next photo about 5 cheerios were spitting out of his mouth. If you look closely I am sure some cheerio mouthfuls made the cut. It was a great time though, and nothing beats having an awesome snapshot at this this time in their lives.

Khadisha + Her Girls

Family Session || Palos Verdes

This family is so sweet and beautiful! Khadisha's husband was not able to make the shoot because of his busy work schedule in the entertainment industry, but Khadisha was still very excited to get some special images of her and her girls! This is such a beautiful time in their lives, with an almost 4 year old and almost 1 year old! The 4 year old is a firecracker with the softest heart in the world for her little sister. The littlest adores her older sister and loves watching her every move. There is so much love for one another in this adorable family.

Grant Family

Family Portraits || Palos Verdes, CA

We have known this gorgeous family for what seems like forever! These boys are absolutely adorable together. Luke became a big brother last year and is totally rocking it. You can tell he adores his little brother (most of the time!). It was so much fun being able to capture this special season in their lives!
