How cute is this sweet little girl? Oh my goodness!! Her mom, Kristina, found me from the awesome Shannon over at Tough Cookies Childrens Boutique in Sherman Oaks (by the way, they have a ton of super cool kids clothes over there right now!! Just got a bunch for each of my girls for their upcoming birthdays and can hardly wait to do some new portrait sessions in them!). Since Miss Rose is an avid crawling toddler on the verge of walking, I recommended doing the portraits in Pasadena where you can still find some great urban grunge, but it’s still clean. Sounds weird but oh so true. Even though I love living in Santa Clarita, I really wish I lived a bit closer since I do so many of my high school senior, family portraits, and childrens sessions over there. It’s just awesome. Anyway, they don’t get much cuter than this and I think she is just a doll!! Those eyes!! That pretty little grin!! Love it all on this little one!!

View our professional photography website or call the studio at 1-800-995-8272 to schedule your own childrens portraits session (since we don’t really have a harsh winter here in the Los Angeles area, now is the perfect time to wear those super cute cold weather clothes and get some new pictures at the same time)!

I am so, so ridiculously far behind on blogging that it’s not even funny. I have so many things that I’d love to share but I just have had zero time for blogging that I guess something has to give, right? I’m going to do my very best to do some older shoot posts and sprinkle in some of the new stuff too. So, here it goes… This is the gorgeous Miss Gabi and I was so excited that it worked out to do her pictures!! She also is a model for the studio and I loved photographing her so much that we ended up doing a second session too. We actually had a little mishap with the makeup lashes (the glue started to sting and caused tearing up) so the awesome Olivia (one of my go-to makeup artists here in town) had to do the makeup all over again. Once we finally got to the location to shoot we literally had about 20 minutes if that. So yes, all of these pictures were taken really, really quickly including the wardrobe change.

During the session, a nice man was out with his daughter walking their dog and I had to see if we could borrow him for a few shots!! I could tell Gabi was thinking the same thing and so Mr. Canine was more than happy to cooperate. If this is your dog and you’re reading this- thank you again!! Stay tuned for part two of Gabi’s senior session that we did here at the studio in Valencia!! Enjoy!!

We still have spots open for 2011 Seniors and if you’re a Junior but want to get scheduled in early, call the studio at 1.800.995.8272

      Thank you Jill! Yes, she is a beauty! Hopefully we can do a session for Andrew before he graduates 🙂ReplyCancel

These guys are such a riot and I love photographing their family portraits every year in Toluca Lake. We usually do the pictures around their home but for this years session, we decided to venture out and do something a little different. Now, anyone that knows me knows that I love photographing in the urban areas with lots of fun color and character so I love that we were still able to do the portraits close by home but give it a cooler vibe than we’ve done before. Tara is not only a super hip foxy mama but she is also a super successful voiceover actress (and has been on Big Time Rush which my kiddos love)!! Mr. Handsome himself, Craig, doesn’t quite seem to love the camera as much as Miss T but he always looks great in every pic anyway!! And the boys, really? They’re just plain awesome and they seem to get better and better every year!!


The deadlines have all passed on getting pictures and products back for this years holiday season, but why not get a gift cert and treat yourself and  your family to some wonderful, modern, hip, family portraits to ring in the New Year?

Please check out our Family Portraits website and call the studio to set up your session!!

Here is another shoot that I did of some friends of the Strongs. It was a super fun day for  family portraits and we shot all around the Los Angeles area!
