• LIFE

    It’s all four generations. It’s a mother and daughter. It’s a little boy climbing a tree. It’s a chance encounter with a horse. It’s chasing down a windblown hat. It’s an unexpected wave soaking your feet.

  • LITTLES

    There are toothless smiles, sticky kisses, dirty hands, rain-booted feet jumping puddles, and bugs in jars. There are chubby chub thighs, hands waving bye-bye, and rides on daddy’s shoulders.

  • LOVE

    Love looks like your grandmother’s wedding ring, love sounds like an inside joke, love feels like his sweatshirt, but love will also tell you there is spinach in your teeth.

Extended family photographs . Kiely family . Hermosa Beach photographer

I love when clients schedule an extended family photo session. These rank way up there on my list of important things to do in your life. Especially when their are grandparents, grandkids, and cousins that travel to be together. I love how close this family is, and how the kids just loved being together.

enjoy! m

Full of joy . Jack + Maddie . Rancho Palos Verdes family photographer

It’s true…this family is genuinely full of joy! I honestly think that when you are a young teen, and you can show up to life with confidence and happiness…that there must be something right going on. And these kids do just that. These parents lead by example, and I enjoyed being a witness to this joyful awesomeness.

We had a great time at one of my favorite beaches to shoot; the light and the setting were just perfect.

enjoy! missy

Awesome backdrop, awesome family . McKenna + Kamryn . Hermosa Beach family photographer

We have a new shopping center in the city just north of us ~ The Point at Rosecrans & Sepulveda in El Segundo. It is a small, outdoor area with cute shops, restaurants, and open green space. One of the best things about this new spot are the colorful walls that grace this space, with giant flowers in bright colors. I did a few sessions here at the end of 2015, this one being a definite favorite.

It is especially cool when you have an awesome backdrop with an awesome family to photograph in front of it.

enjoy, m

Bottle up this cuteness . Gracie, Finn & Tatum . Hermosa Beach child photographer

Seriously, can we bottle up this cuteness? Perhaps take a 5 star cruise around the world with the profits? Ha! I know, not possible, but can we dream a little?

I love how their momma embraces each of her kids’ personalities in the way that she loves them. I think that little Tatum won’t have any shortage of hugs and kisses with these 2 older siblings…right?

Girl Strong . Kira + Brynn . Hermosa Beach photographer

I know you will know what I’m talking about when I say “girl strong”. These girls are the absolute epitomes of strong. One with a passion for singing and one with a drive to dance. They work hard and never give up. And it shows in their personalities, each different, but similar in the fact that they are so persistent in pursuing their own goals.

Honestly, I am proud to know them…and so proud to be able to watch them grow up.

enjoy, m
