Reeves Family- UCLA Campus Family Portraits

I had such a fun time with my last shoot in Los Angeles.  YES!  Last shoot.  We just moved up to the San Francisco Bay area, Santa Clara specifically for Colby's job, and we love it so far.  Anyway, this shoot with the Reeves family was a perfect bookend to my photography in LA.  They were such a fun family to work with, and their kids were great, especially their little girl, who you can see, was loaded with spunk and personality.  James, the father, is a PhD student at UCLA, so they chose campus as their shoot location to document their time there as a family. I hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed hanging out with this family for an evening!

Zak and Miho Engagements: Sneak Preview

When Zak and Miho came to me to do their engagement photos I was so excited! Their story is classic. They met while working for the same company in the LA area and soon started dating...without co-workers knowing, both ended up at UCLA Anderson, and are excitedly preparing for their wedding day this September. The locations they chose for the shoot could not have been more perfect--for them and me! I love both spots they chose from a photography viewpoint, but also because they are places with such meaning to them, and I think this makes their pictures even more special. They wanted part of their session near tower 26 at Santa Monica beach, as they live nearby and he proposed last June there. They wanted the other location to be on UCLA campus, seeing as they have spent many of their courting hours hitting the books up on campus. 

 I will post more images soon, but here is a little sneak peak of some of my favorites from both locations.

The Alden Family

I had so much fun spending an evening with the Alden family up on UCLA campus.  Heather is a medical school student, finishing up this year, and they wanted to have s new set of family pictures done since they have added a new addition to their family.  We decided UCLA would be a perfect place to capture the photos, since it has such a significant meaning in her, and their, life.

Baby J and family

If you are looking for something a little different than a traditional newborn photoshoot, family plus baby is a great way to go.  I had the sweetest experience photographing this precious little newborn and his loving parents.  He is definitely a Momma's boy, and I think she's fine with that. :)

and of course, my absolute favorite thing from my newborn shoots, all the little details of baby:
