Manhattan Beach Couples Session, Los Angeles Couples Photography

I had way too much fun photographing my photographer friend Chloe and her boyfriend with their fur babies in Manhattan Beach.  This was my first all film couples session and photographing her two squirmy pups were perfect target practice for my manual focus Contax!

Long Beach Family Photography

One of my favorite parts of family photography is getting to watch kids grow up year after year and I feel so lucky that I've been photographing these little ones for 7 years now!  Charles is the first baby I ever photographed back when I was still in college and photographing him helped me realize how much I love documenting beautiful family moments.  I've known their father since I was born and couldn't resist sharing one of us together at the bottom of the post. When I visited them out at the beach this summer I decided to bring my new Contax 645 and shoot all film and I'm so glad I did!  It was a beautiful sunny day and we had fun running around the beach collecting sea shells.  It's the perfect post to end the summer with.  Happy Labor Day!

DUMBO and Central Park Anniversary Session, New York City Couple's Photography

Jana reached out to me from South Africa to do a photo shoot in NYC while she and her husband were visiting.  They picked the hottest week of the entire year, but we still had a blast walking all over the city from Brooklyn to Central Park.  I love planning out these fun sessions for out of towners to explore NY and get in some local NY neighborhoods as well as the popular tourist spots. To cool off from the heat I brought them to my fav DUMBO summer spot Jacques Torres for some ice cream sandwiches!
