Having your photo taken can be scary. My mom photographed all of us seven kids every year, so I’ve had so much experience being photographed, and now, being the photographer. During a family photo session in Los Angeles, I do everything I can to help make you all comfortable. But there are a few things you can do and bring that make the process smoother!

I love doing newborn photography in Los Angeles. In-home sessions are my favorite, because they lead to less stress for everyone involved. Both baby and parents have everything they need, and nobody has to disrupt their routine to drive to a studio or location for stressful photos. Jessica and I had been going back and forth with various plans for a session for months, and finally settled on newborn photos soon after baby was born. I was so happy to meet these two new parents and capture these memories for them!

This little family was the best. Look at the babies! Twins! I love doing in-home sessions with new babies and parents. It’s much more relaxing for everyone. Babies and parents have everything they need, and I find the babies are generally happier, especially if there are older children, as well. This family fed me pizza, which, if you know me, means I’ll be loyal to them forever. Their home was beautiful, lots of natural light, and mom had an amazing vision for what she wanted for her baby photos in LA.

This family was amazing to work with! H (Mom) is a stylist for a major store, so the house, children, everything was coordinated and just gorgeous. The girls all charmed me right way, and they obviously loved each other so much. This made doing their family photos in LA a breeze. It was an in-home session because of the recent addition, and it was beautiful.

In between traveling from Los Angeles to Boise and a wedding, in the early hours of the morning, this family met me in the park for family photos! I loved photographing for them. The session included the two original parents, their children, a husband, child, and a girlfriend! It was awesome! They were so cooperative and fun to work with.

This little family was such a joy to work with! Look at their new family photos!!! I met Bre through my sister and she has those delicate, doe-eyes and such a kind personality. Although I love doing family pictures in Los Angeles, the scenery around my native state is very hard to beat. This was an old country road I walked or rode many times with my horse and family.

I love doing Christmas mini-sessions. A mini-session is basically a temporary studio where I set up in a pretty place and families/couples come to me. It’s cheaper for them, and it’s worth it for me. I love giving families and couples affordable photography, and this is one way to do it! This mini-session I set up with an amazing Idaho winery, Hell’s Canyon, last Christmas.

I can’t claim to be an expert. But throughout my photography career I’ve amassed a bag of tricks I use to get kids to cooperate with photos. I grew up in a large family and my mom was also a very good photographer. So I learned some from her, some from hanging with my nieces and nephews, and some from just plain old remembering what it was like to be a kid. So here’s my top advice to parents and photographers.

This little family is so gorgeous! I got to photograph them for Eagle Life, an Idaho lifestyle magazine. At first these three beautiful girls didn’t want to be photographed. But I take it as part of my job as a family photographer to try my best to get kids (both young and old) involved and happy. So they ended up participating and they are all SO CUTE!! This was the back porch of their family home.

This family was a hoot! They reminded me of why I love doing family photos in Los Angeles and Boise. Family photos are significant, because they take a sliver out of time and show us who we used to be. My mom is an amazing photographer and took a photo of us every year she could. It’s amazing to see the transformations and how we used to behave for photos.
