Senior Pictures - El Matador Beach

Our day at the beach started a little late and it just happened to be one of brightest and warmest day of the year, so the light was a bit harsh and we tried to make the best of it. It was my first time doing a “High School Senior” photo session and I had a lot of fun trying to get the perfect shot with Faith who was such a pleasure to work with. She couldn’t wait to be out of High School and she was enthusiastic during the entire shoot and was never afraid of the oncoming waves that managed to get both of us wet. It was only a matter or minutes before we were dry again though, and we managed to get a lot of fun images. We wish her the best on her journey after she graduates high school.

Family Photos in Malibu

It was a few weeks after the infamous Woosley fire that burned a vast area of Malibu, but what remained of the fire was a grim reminder of the destructive power of mother nature. We walked around El Matador beach during high tide, which made for a fun and adventurous photoshoot around the picturesque beach. It was insanely warm for a winter day so we headed in the hills and finished our day at Malibu Café. It’s a quintessential L.A spot with overprices drinks, under-appreciated housewives, and a lot of fun backyard games.

We captured a lot of adorable family photos and we shared memories that will last a lifetime

Culver City, Gabriel and Bogosse

I was lucky enough to spend a month with my nephew who came to visit with the rest of the family for Christmas. We had a lot of fun riding scooters on the boardwalk, climbing high towers at the playgrounds and sharing a lot of meals in the sun. He may have learned a few bad words along the way but we shared a lot of great moments together, and he taught me that there is always a good opportunity to watch Moana again. One of our daily routines was to walk the dogs around the neighborhood so we decided to take the pictures there. Both Bogosse and Gabriel were adorable and it was another great bonding experience for all of us.
