  • 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 [...]
  • Hey, there! From the gal behind the camera.

  • Hey there, I'm Misty, the gal behind the camera. I'm a Los Angeles dwelling wife of 7 years and a mother of two girls who are now the ages of 4 and 7. After a decade of working as an art teacher to young kids, I now spend most of my time at home with my girls as their educator (we homeschool), housekeeper, and a short-order cook. We're also home to a few dogs, a handful of cats, a few dozen chickens and a tortoise. Sounds so glamorous, I know [...]

  • A Pasadena Family Session and What Made it a Success!

  • I've attempted this post a few times already, each time getting a little carried away with all the info I have and want to share on how to make your photography session a success. Clearly, I need to write a post where I dive into that in full detail. I'll save that for a later date and time. But today, I want to keep things light and just share a Pasadena Family Session and what made it a success. 1) It was fully raining in my neighbo [...]
  • 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. I discovered it through a hashtag search on Instagram from others posting pictures of it. The very next day, I was checking it out for myself in person along with my girls and I headed back that evening with my o [...]

  • FREE PHOTO SESSION GIVEAWAY with Misty Jeanine Photography

  • In celebration of reaching 200 followers on Instagram (I know, big whoop for some) and of Fall beginning in a few days, I thought I'd offer a photography session giveaway. It's my first one so get excited with me, won't you?! I've been on a motivation high lately, when it comes to all things photography. I've been booking more sessions, I attended an amazing 3-day workshop in northern Utah where I learned TONS and I'll be heading back to a [...]
  • A Maternity Session // Sierra Madre Maternity Photographer

  • You guys...THIS! I am so happy with everything about this gorgeous session. I'll admit that I was a little unsure going into it because it was at a location that I've never been to and because it was close to 100 degrees out! Note to self: wear dark shirts that don't show sweat spots on hot session days (I was embarrassingly sweaty #storyofmylife). In the end, our location ended up being so great, the sun and light were magic, my clients [...]
  • Back To School Mini Sessions

  • The start to another school year is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate your child entering a new grade than with a little photo session! Back to School Mini Sessions are a fun way to capture your child's unique personality, to document the few inches I'm sure they grew over the summer and they're a sweet way to let your child know how proud you are of them as they take on a new grade. The style of this session is [...]
  • A Maternity Session // Pasadena Photographer

  • Maternity sessions truly have a special place in my heart. I have two girls myself, and I was lucky that both pregnancies were smooth and easy-enough. With my first, I didn't embrace my pregnancy and appreciate the process as much as I wish I would have. I just wanted to rush right through it. I missed being pregnant, afterwards. With my second, I made it a point not to rush anything, to take in every moment, to remember all of the kicks and roll [...]
A Family Session // La Crescenta Photographer
  • A Family Session // La Crescenta Photographer

  • I know I've already said this on my FB page and my Instagram , but this family was a photographer's dream session. Everyone was so easy and laid-back, they were playful and we all went with the flow of the two-year-old (who is just the cutest, most inquisitive two-year-old there is). This was such a fun family session for me and I'm so glad I got to work with this beautiful family (and it turns out that I went to high school with this lovely M [...]
