Behind The Scenes | Engagements

So its been a while since last uploaded any content to this page but I am making it a priority to be better about posting from here on out.

Last year I had posted a couple behind the scenes videos and really wanted to make that a regular thing, but as the holiday season got busy the videos kind of fell off. Ive been working quietly lately, sorting through my entire catalog of images, finally putting ideas into motion., and updating the business a bit. I spent the last week putting some old footage from 2017 shoots together, and intend on sharing as much behind the scenes with you all as I can this year. 

Here's a preview from an engagement session last year in Malibu and a few of their favorite photos...

I will be featuring a gallery and BTS video for at least 1 session a month. Nothing fancy just something to let you in on our workday and what I see before and after the image is taken.

 I appreciate you all for viewing!

Myles growin UP | The adventurous 2s

This cute little guy Myles (who we like to call "Smyles" because he is always so serious lol ) turned 2 this month and I was lucky enough to work with him again on another birthday session. Last years theme was Where the Wild things Are , this year was an UP inspired shoot. Super rad. Shoutout to his momma, Jayme Mendoza, who always comes prepared with her own DIY ideas & props! Loved the light, colors and most of all this ADORABLE little face ...

The Johnson's | Maternity session

Had the chance to do some Maternity photos in Memphis, Tennessee last month , surrounded by nature, and warm weather. I love Memphis, everything there has such a tranquil vibe. So peaceful and beautiful in its own special way. 

Happy to have the opportunity to photograph a few quick shots for Adrian & Daniel who just gave birth to their baby boy Ashton earlier this month. Here's a few from our session

Mariah + Aldo | Malibu Engagements

I had such a good time working with Mariah & Aldo on their engagement shoot! SO fun, and easy to work with, capturing the love between them was effortless. When they contacted me, Mariah talked about how much they loved the beach, how they spent a lot of time there, it was pretty much a 2nd home to them. I immediately suggested El matador beach.  We headed out on the PCH (pacific cast highway) and met up right before sunset. Here are a few of my favorites from our evening in Malibu....

In addition to being a wonderful partner to Aldo, Mariah is also an amazing mother to her 7 year old son, Ivan. Such. cute little family...

We had a beautiful sunset and a lot of fun in the water to end our evening...

The Scott Family | #fbf

Working with Liz Scott and her family is always one of my favorite sessions to shoot. They are one of the few clients that know what they want when they shoot with me...outfits , location, style. They tell me what they envision and I try my best to execute it. This location and look for them was my favorite we've done so far. I love cool, I love different, and I love people that want to put that out there. Kuddos to this family for just naturally being badasses and allowing me to document it and show that off. 

Heres a few shots from that session last year...

The Jerez's at Ellwood Beach | Goleta, CA

I first worked with Emilio & Gracie in 2012 for their engagement photos, and was so happy when they reached out to me again for their maternity photos. It was foggy and overcast when we showed up but as the sun started to set, it cleared up enough for us to get some of the mountains in the background. It was a beautiful mix of weather we had that day, a little gloom and a little sun, I think it was perfect. Here's some favorites from our session...

Last wedding of the year! Heres some highlights from Rudy & Yvette Bibian's gorgeous Newhall Mansion wedding!

We started the day with bridal details while Yvette got ready for her day..

We watched Rudy's eyes light up as he opened up his wedding day gift from his gorgeous wife to be, a "for his eyes only" book, a compilation of boudoir style photos that we took with Yvette the month prior to the wedding...needless to say, he LOVED it, (can you tell?)...

Yvette & Rudy chose to do a First Look before their ceremony...

Ceremony followed shortly after as Yvette's brother walked her down the aisle...

Portraits with the Bridal Party and the happy couple as Husband and wife...

Happy Halloween

It was that time of year again. My yearly halloween session with Lisa and the clan was another success. Been working with Lisa & the kids since 2011 and every year has just been better and better. I have to say, I think these shoots are my favorite to do and what I really count on and look forward to every year. They are so fun and have no limits. I love their ideas and love seeing what they will bring to the table and have in store for me year after year. Heres a little taste of this years epic shoot...

The kids are my favorite part of these halloween sessions. They are always so down for whatever ideas Lisa & I have. They do what it takes to get the shot, and I love seeing them get into character. You guys are the best!

Mike was a nice addition to this years shoot, was so on point with everything: posing, makeup, bringing that extra touch of creepy, put these photos on a whole other level.. 

Thank you lisa for raising such cool kids and having such crazy, creative minds. Thank you for continuing to work with me and giving me a new challenge every year..cant wait to see what you guys have for me next October.

 

Happy halloween everyone!
