  • 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 [...]
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 [...]
  • An In-Home Baby Session // Montrose Baby Photographer

  • Newborn and infant photography sessions are like a box of chocolates...you never know what you're going to get. This sweet little man only stayed asleep for us for maybe 10 minutes? But that's okay! A sleeping babe definitely isn't a requirement, but it does make getting certain shots a heck of a lot easier. Baby F did well in the arms of his parents and it's always so nice to see the interaction between a family and their newest member. [...]
  • Baby Gray's In-Home Session // Pasadena Baby Photographer

  • This session is from a little over a year ago. It's still one of my favorites for a number of different reasons. This was an in-home session and their home is just gorgeous. It provided so much gorgeous, natural light and every room was unique. It gave their over-all collection of images from the session such variety and color. And the cherry on top was how beautiful and darling baby Gray was. Her parents were so mellow, easy-going and pretty dar [...]
  • A Beach Lifestyle Session // Oxnard Beach Photographer

  • A "lifestyle" session...what the heck is that? Well I'll tell you, my friends. In a nutshell, it's a photography session that captures you and your family in your element, with minimal to no posing. It's a session where the photographer attempts to be a "fly on the wall", snapping away while you just do your thang. This type of session is perfect for telling your own personal story, full of real moments and raw emotion. Locations can be anythi [...]
