Descanso Garden Maternity Shoot

A couple of  months ago I got the opportunity to photograph Yasmin and her growing family at Descanso Gardens. It was such a thrill hearing their love story from having a long distance relationship to their marriage, and finally becoming parents.  She is such a beautiful mommy both in and out so calm and relaxing!  Oscar is so attentive her every need he made sure she was comfortable.

I found myself becoming incredibly sentimental throughout their session with how they described their love for each other. 

I know they will both be amazing parents to their bundle of joy!

Yuri finally gave birth to Camila! so I thought this would be the perfect time to share her lovely session with you all.  She is such a strong mommy, I can only imagine how happy she is to be able to hold her baby girl in her arms.  Her Palos Verdes session is definitely one I will remember, throughout her session Yuri was so celestial taking in the scene and simply enjoying this sweet moment with her baby girl. Big hugs Yuri, you are going to be an amazing mommy

With summer starting today and being the longest day of the year! I wanted to share Noherana's graduation photos.  Following her sister's footsteps, she is now also a graduate from CSULB with a Psychology degree.  She comes from a family of strong women so receiving her bachelor's degree is just one step to a successful future. ! I can not wait to see what her career has in stores.

R.T and Laura are those customers who hold a special place in my heart.  One of the many reasons why is because I have been capturing many of their special moments and they are simply awesome humans! I still can't believe how quickly Makayla has grown, I have seen Makayla grow right before my eyes.  I have had the opportunity to capture her newborn session, her first Halloween, half birthday, her first Christmas, and to now her First birthday.  I feel incredibly happy knowing that I have friends who trust me in document special moments in their lives.  

The best part about Makayla's parents is the way they go all out for all of their sessions.  I love how excited Laura gets.  She goes all Martha Stewart on props and creates amazing masterpieces.  So much so she even went to the extent of baking Makayla her cake for the session, which by the way it was extremely delicious.  

Happy Birthday Ms. Makayla I can not wait to share more of these special moments with you and your family!  

 

New Born Session: Baby Jacob David

There is nothing sweeter than seeing a new mommy taking care of her first born. Jocelyn is so infatuated with baby Jacob, she holds him like a precious pearl.  I do not blame her, he is such a cutie! 

It was a pleasure to photograph such a special moment in David and Jocelyn's life.  Their energy throughout the shoot was filled with nothing, but happiness! 

  I am happy to say I am slowly figuring out my style of photography.  I love capturing genuine moments between people, with little direction unfolding naturally between shots.  

I believe a photograph is associated with emotions.  A photograph will be cherished more when a feeling is associated behind the photo. 

 Don't get me wrong I am thankful for the other newborn photos, but doing lifestyle newborn session makes my soul happy! 

Welcome to the world baby Jacob! I look forward to seeing you grow and I hope this is one of many sessions together.
