Vista Hermosa Maternity Session

I had the honor of photographing my beautiful and lovely friend Sharon and her husband Marco for their maternity shoot. The location was Vista Hermosa Park, a secretive lush pocket of greenery right beside the hustle of downtown LA. What’s most special about this park, though is that this is where the two got hitched! So it felt like everything came full circle in returning to these grassy lawns and sanctuary of trees. Oh- and as I just discovered… it’s a baby boy!

A Botanical Engagement at LA Arboretum

Naomi and her beau flew into LA from New York and we were able to set up this gorgeous botanical-inspired engagement session at the LA Arboretum. Lucky for our short window of time, we had those classic California sun rays all afternoon. Naomi has a love for cacti so we incorporated those beautiful desert vibes and then made our way to the ancient forest to create some lush Gauguin inspired images. Best wishes to this dreamy duo who are set to marry on Long Island next year. xo

He is Ernie

Sit down or jump up for a treat and visit director/editor Ernie Gilbert's website, You may have already seen his work! The last video he cut was This is America by Childish Gambino.  A friend since college, it's been awesome to watch his trajectory out here in LA. This was a fun session we shot together at LAC studios in downtown LA. Get after those dreams of yours and make them happen. 1-2-3 jump! XO


Headshots with Actor Luke Jackson

If you're lucky you can hear Luke Jackson recite Shakespeare, taking you back in time several hundred years. Ideally this will be like my scenario...within a sunny apple orchard in Ojai, CA as you follow along an ancient stone wall. Professionally trained, he's coming onto the acting scene as a Jon Snow meets Lorenzo Medici kind of way. I anticipate seeing his devilishly charming mug in the next period-set production. Or who knows- he can deliver a range of looks so the screen time ahead is wide open. Such a great shoot with this guy. 

A Sweet Family Photo Session at The GettY

Meet Pamela, an all star mom with 3 beautiful children and a stand-up husband in tow. In our one-hour session at The Getty Museum last weekend we achieved some great shots... no small feat for a family of 5! I was duly impressed with the handle these parents had on their cute kiddos as well as with their super fun & sweet personalities. 

A garden party bridal shower for Lili

Actress, Reiki healer, and the beautifully abundant soul that is Lili Bordan is soon to be married! After kicking Michael, her beau-to-be, out of the house, friends pulled together to throw her a garden party bridal shower at her home in South Pasadena. There was plenty of witchy-ritual, tasty cocktails, fresh flowers twisted into crowns, guessing games and reiki-blessings (even Finn got one!). It was amazing to see Lili surrounded with a community of such strong female support. Hang onto your girlfriends y'all, they are your number ones! Here are some snaps from the afternoon. xo
