  • Lifestyle Newborn Session - La Canada Flintridge Photographer

  • I met this family for the first time at the doorstep of their home for their lifestyle newborn session. They had such warm and inviting smiles and their children were excited to see me even though we hadn't yet met. Their oldest daughter led me in and happily showed me around the house, especially her room and some of her favorite toys. It turns out that her and her brother love Paw Patrol just as much as my two girls do! As with any family wi [...]

  • Spring Mini Sessions

  • After weeks of searching for a local spot that fit my vision for Spring Mini Sessions, I've finally found it. I've been here dozens of times in the past, but I didn't realize it had so many flowers right in the beginning of spring.
