Clara initially contacted me for professional headshots, and I was so excited when I asked if she preferred something against a backdrop in the studio or an outdoor more organic setting, and she chose the latter. We headed to one of my favorite pretty nature spots and after getting some of the more standard shots, she happily let me get a bit more creative and I so love how these images came out. I remembered after this session the importance of “just because” portraits – it’s wonderful to celebrate milestone occasions with a portrait session, but there’s a beauty in capturing just the in-between pieces of this particular time in your life. Just simple beautiful portraits celebrating you.

Clara is such a beauty inside and out and we had so much fun a this session! If a “just because” session is something you’d be interested in, please feel free to reach out to me here!

A sunny fall day, the Palos Verdes hills, a couple flower crowns, and this beautiful family make for the sweetest portrait session! Both of the girls were such a delight, and the little boy, born just a few weeks before the shoot, was such a trooper.

So happy we were able to get these images that they can use for their holiday cards this year!

An engagement, a wedding, a new addition to the family – all are wonderful opportunities to get in front of the camera and create some photos. But what about the in between times? I firmly believe in the importance of taking photos “just because” – to capture any given moment in your life, to celebrate the everyday. Jen was turning 29 and wrote me the most beautiful email about how she wanted just a simple beauty session, to create a time capsule for this particular moment in the last year of her 20s, so she {and her kids one day} could always look back on these photos. This past year was a big one for her – moving to Canada to be with her husband, being away from her family and friends, enduring various changes and challenges – and I’m overjoyed that she took this moment to celebrate coming through all of this with so much grace, to embrace a milestone birthday, and just carve out a small bit of “me” time. Although we wanted this session to focus on her, her sweet hubby Andrew came along and I was so happy I could capture a few of the two of them together as well :)

Also, that beautiful pocket watch necklace you see her wearing below? I swooned over it the entire session and at the end, she pulled out another one that she had bought as a gift for me! Seriously speechless.

Thank you so much Jen for giving me the chance to be a part of capturing all your beauty (both inside and out!) and this particular moment in your life. And if anyone is interested in a similar beauty session, please do contact me – this was such a rewarding and fun process to be a part of :)
