I have six siblings, each one better than the last. My two sisters, Pattie and Grace, came down to Los Angeles to visit with me, and we went to Yosemite together. It was a beautiful, all-to-brief, trip. Family isn’t always made up of people you’d choose, but regardless of whether or not you choose them, they’re yours forever. Nothing can separate you. In my case, though, I love the wandering, fearless conversations I can have with my sisters. We don’t always agree, but it doesn’t really matter.

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 senior photos for graduations in Los Angeles. I love the significance of the moment. And this girl, this girl got THREE degrees, all in really smart things! And… graduated right after COVID hit. So she had a virtual graduation out of Boise State University and decided to splurge on some amazing graduation photography. I loved getting to know her and the people who supported her through the journey.

This is Will! I got to do his acting headshots in Los Angeles after my husband met him on a movie set. Doesn’t he look like General Shang from Mulan?!? We are planning on doing more soon. I only had about 30 minutes to do these. Will is an amazing young man with an amazing story. He has overcome so many odds, including poverty and an accident that rendered him, a student athlete, paralyzed. You can find out more on his website, Empowered by Will. He’s an inspirational speaker and teacher now!

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!

I love marriage. I think marriage is valuable, regardless of how the wedding has to happen. Simple or complex, the wedding doesn’t matter as much as the two people entering into the marriage together. Which is one reason I was so excited when Quique and Sahana asked me to photograph their Covid-19 elopement at the Honda Center. Because this will be a day and a time we will tell our kids about. And when there are photos, it’s so much more of a story.

These two are so special! I felt an instant connection with her and her entire family. We took an RV up to Mount Laguna to take their engagement photos. It was a beautiful day, we had a picnic, walked up and down hills, and danced through flowering fields. It was perfection.

This girl is so talented and gorgeous!! You can’t tell from the headshots, but the way she speaks and her personality is even more gorgeous than her face. It was so fun just to hang out with her, wander the streets, and take some lifestyle photos and acting headshots around West Hollywood!

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 girl is amazing, so gorgeous, and talented. I’d always wanted to photograph her, and so one day some of my students and I went out for a fun day in downtown and took thousands of photos of her. One of my ambitions is to be a dance photographer in LA, and this is why.
