California Girls in Massachusetts
Ok, so the colors probably won’t be this beautiful while I’m in Massachusetts and Connecticut early September, but I’m looking forward to a change of scenery and a chance to visit my old haunts. If you are a past MA client or would like your chance to be a MA client, email me for a session 9/12-9/15. Travel sessions start at $500 and include digital files. Can’t wait for our visit!
The simplest little moments can make great portraits. The first meeting of two cousins (the little one is mine!). Even though these shots aren’t perfectly posed in Sunday best, they capture personality in a bright, modern and pretty (if I do say so myself) package: both the girls and the photograph. Embrace the casual days of summer and get out and take some playful cuddly pictures of your own…or give me a call and you can get in the picture too!
Summer Outdoor Portrait
Romantic Portrait, Southern California
A sweet moment between lovebirds in a stunning location. Sharing an image and taking the opportunity to extend an offer: I’m still getting the lay of the land since moving to California and I’d love to learn from you! This summer, take me to one of your favorite locations, it doesn’t have to be epic, just a little piece of pretty and sentiment somewhere around Orange County…In return, I’m offering you a free mini-session (20-30 minute portrait session), three small watermarked digital files and a 5×7 print. For details and to set a date, shoot me an email.
Fun, Fierce OC Portrait
I’ve had such a great time taking fun just-because images of women that I’ve decided to offer a special Celebrate You promo. Great limited-time pricing available for local women who’d like some amazing portraits of them for a change! No more pin-dot flash red-eyed facebook snapshots—wow your friends with your awesomeness captured on (digital) film. Sessions start at $400, including prints.

My daughter has her first big dance recital coming up. She goes to one of those megastudios in RSM and I think the day of the recital will be a bit overwhelming, so we got in some portraits ahead of time.
Little Cowgirl, South Orange County
SoCal Beach Portrait
Sunset on the beach…perfect for portraits.
California Summer Portrait
Now that summer is upon us I have a break from school and am able to concentrate a bit more on offering photography sessions (and updating this blog!). Every once and a while to flex my artistic muscle—which allows me to continue to shoot fresh and creative portraits for my clients—I get together with a bunch of local Southern California photographers to play with models or our own kids and just create for fun. I was able to get this portrait of my own girls with props provided by the fabulous Los Angeles photographer Je Neuhaus
. I’m now inspired to try new things and take more artistic wall-ready portraits of my own children and my clients. I always like my sessions to be a partnership with those I photograph—if you have something you’d like to try out in your own portraits, please let me know. I look forward to creating art with you!
Loved working with A. and her best gal pal, who is a makeup artist. A. was absolutely adorable in her husband’s football jersey (that came down below her knees, by the way):

and looking quite sultry:
Of course we took a few that were more PG-13. Samples of boudoir portraits on the Orange County Boudoir Photography site
I haven’t had much time to explore the area, but already I’ve found little diamonds in the rough very close to my new home. I took this family to a nearby park for a mini-session. I love the evening light here and how it plays off all the pretty sands, browns and greens in this park on a hilltop. Mom is totally gorgeous and her little fellow just looked so content to sit with her for a bit (before he was off to explore!).
Southern California Family Portrait
I got plenty of giggles between his bunny chasing explorations (thanks in part to dad and the piggie puppet!), but something about this tender little moment touched me and I thought I would share.
Outdoor Toddler Portrait
I need to get pictures of my own girls in the California sunshine and will post those soon – expect to see more from me now that I’ve had a little chance to settle.
Three-month-old baby portrait
Baby L. and her family came out to my favorite little orchard for a very last-minute session before I head to California. I was more than willing to take a break from packing to fit them in. The weather was hot and muggy, but the orchard hill provided a little shade and a much-needed breeze, and baby L. was happy to enjoy it bare-skinned. Doesn’t she have the cutest smile and the coolest hair?
Family Portrait in the Orchard
I don’t often show many portraits with pacifiers, but I thought this moment (and the setting!) were too perfect to pass up. It was so great to meet you three and I hope to see you and baby L. as a toddler when I come back to New England for a visit.
