Working in downtown Los Angeles, California is always so inspiring. The light down there is like a painting bouncing off of all the different unique buildings. I was so excited to 2nd shoot with Karen Barens Photography again photographing a wedding with her. We started in Downtown Los Angeles, then headed to Artesia to Holy Family Catholic Church to photograph in such a majestic building for the ceremony.
The Messenger family means the world to me. I was so happy to photograph them in sunny California and sunny it was…well…very Hot it was haha.
You have all heard me talk about Lydia many times before. That is because she is such an amazing photographer at Lydia Messenger Photography and I have 2nd shot for her on many occasions. Having her family of four in front of my camera was a long time coming and it did not disappoint. Her family is such a joy and they love to have fun! Enjoy!
Being outside in an open field tall grass is my kind of family session. The Weber family was so fun to photograph. I mean who doesn’t love a smilie, piercing blue eyed 6 month old! I also love hearing back from my clients after they have seen their images. Kerri said,”thank you for the beautiful pictures! We truly love them and are very happy with them. You did a great job!” This truly makes my day and I am so happy for them.
Thank you Weber family for allowing me to capture your family at this fun stage of life. Your smilie, sweet little boy has captivated me.
Photographing with Karen Barnes Photography is always so fun! Love working with her
Nina and Jason were such a joy to work with. Their love truly shinned on their wedding day. They got ready at the luxurious The Garland in North Hollywood and they also had their reception at the same location. Getting married at the Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Atwater Village. I have never been their before it was such a unique older building in this small little town in Los Angeles, CA. The staff was so friendly and helpful with everything we needed.
One of my favorite parts of 2nd shooting is being a little fly on the wall more then usual. Hearing all the fun memories of the groom being single, to dating, to engaged, and now married. Them joking around and then having a serious moment. They always end up happening.
This years Easter was filled with so many fun moments. Now that Hayley is starting to understand the joy of holidays it really makes it so fun! And then on top of it Josh’s parents and Grandma were able to join us in all the festivities.
We hid the eggs while all the kids were napping. Well more like throwing them in the grass and hiding a few good ones for Connor so that he had a little fun challenge. Then when they woke up they were so excited to see the eggs outside and were ready to run and GET THOSE EGGS!
Of course we tried to get a picture of the cousins together before hand….yup you guess right…that was not a success. lol Jaxson wanted to run. Not to get the eggs but just to run and he thought it was the funniest thing EVER. Bentley, Connor and Hayley they were picture ready wondering why Jaxson was not standing still. Trying to do these things I always am laughing behind the camera because these yes…these are the memories I want to remember. This is childhood.
