Jessica and Mark - Maternity Session in Malibu, Ca

Jessica and Mark – Maternity Session in Malibu, Ca


I had fun shooting the maternity session for a former wedding client of mine, Mark & Jessica!  I shot their wedding nearly 3 years ago and now they are welcoming a new addition to their family.   They asked me to shoot their Maternity Session.  We decided to do some shots at one of my favorite beaches, El Matador State Beach, Malibu.  I shot with natural light in this one.  I had a couple of creative ideas using shoes and names carved out in the sand.  It wasn’t the usual at El Matador Beach.  It was kind of cloudy!  If you have been following my work through the years, you know how I love to use sunlight to shape my shots.    I had sunlight but the shining rays of light I always used.  Either way, the setting is beautiful no matter what!  We had a lot of props that we used which Jessica and I talked about before arriving there.

That is the key to any shoot – preparation.  The more prepared you are, the better off you are.  Of course, sometimes the best photos are accidents, but generally for clients, I love to shoot having somewhat of a plan.  A couple of photos here were shot on the hill of Pepperdine University and CA-1 which actually wasn’t planned at all, but right at that spot, at that moment, I could get the beautiful rays of light (my favorite).  Then after a couple of sporadic fun shots, we ran over to El Matador State Beach for the remained of the maternity session.   Jessica has always been stunningly gorgeous and as a mom, even more so!  Congrats again you two!

Check out our beautiful afternoon at the beach!  IMG_0875_1-2_1 IMG_0849_1-2_1 IMG_0827_1-2_1 IMG_0495_1_1 IMG_0430_1_1 2B6A8857_1_1 2B6A8827_1_1 2B6A8800_1_1 2B6A8785_1_1 2B6A8695_1_1 2B6A8689_1_1

Kristen & Rick – The Wedding Trailer

I posted a blog of Kristen and Rick’s photos, but now here’s the video! Kristen & Rick tied the knot on May 27th, 2013. Kristen always dreamt of a beach wedding and she definitely got it! Her wedding took place on the beach in Oceanside, CA. Their wedding consisted of a perfect day, some moonshine, sky lanterns, a couple of laughs, tears and smiles!

We had a blast shooting this amazing couple! Here is their story.

Colorful Indian Wedding Shower

WE ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS COUPLE!!! They hired us last minute to shoot their beautiful baby shower at a local park near our home, Burbank!  🙂 So since we had a Saturday off, we decided… WHY NOT!  Let’s shoot this baby shower!  Low and Behold, we met a fun couple, a fun crowd!  When Tarini emailed us, he said “it’s a traditional indian ceremony where the women wil be draped in sarees.”  The word “draped in sarees” sounded very colorful and fun, so we packed our camera bags and set off to another photo adventure!!!

Here’s some of the pics from the day!
