I had a great time last weekend photographing a former colleague of mine and her family. Carla, Alan, and Liam met me at Temescal Canyon Gateway Park for a family portrait session against a beautiful fall backdrop. There were colorful leaves, rustic benches, and even a magical fog that rolled in. Liam - who turned 2 yesterday - had a great time exploring and riding in the wagon I brought. The whole family was so much fun to work with, and quite photogenic as you'll see below!

I love that my friends Rachael and Josh decided to do family photos for Josh's mom's birthday! His parents and sister came to town, so we all went down to the Santa Monica Pier to get some really sweet shots in lovely late afternoon light. Here are some of the highlights of our session. Happy birthday Susan!

I was so excited to do this shoot - Adyn is a good buddy of my little guy who also just turned 1, so I've had the pleasure of watching her grow up this year. I shot mostly in the backyard where the natural light was beautiful and there were so many great colors to compliment her outfits. Then we moved inside for a couple more staged studio style photos (with a tutu, of course), and finally - the cupcake smash! A lot of photographers do ones like this, and this was my first - I just handed her a pink cupcake and watched her have at it. It was so much fun - happy 1st birthday Adyn!
