Families + Kids

The MacArthur Family // Los Angeles Family Photography

All I can say about today is the same as I would say on any other day. This world can be ugly at times, and full of hate. It can also be full of love and hope, and march forward towards a better future. So my suggestion for today, just like any other day, is to hold your children a little tighter, and teach them tolerance, teach them to love,  teach them that peace is possible, raise them to be understanding, caring individuals, and encourage them to move this world forward with compassion and togetherness.

The MacArthur family is my model for love today... 

Natalie & Diego // Los Angeles Family Photography

Natalie is the LA-based founder of Fashion Mamas, a "members-only network for influential mothers who work in fashion and creative industries." I've had the honor of collaborating with Natalie for the last year, photographing many of her local events, each of which bring together the most stylish mamas in all of LA, not to mention the most fashionably-dressed kids! Since it's inception, FM has grown to include both a New York City and a San Francisco chapter.

A few weeks ago, I was invited into Natalie's home for this sweet Mama and babe session, with her little man, Diego...

The Adrian Family in Los Angeles

I spent some time with the Adrian family in their home a few months ago. I love when a family shows me who they really are and allows me to sit back and shoot while they carry on with life. This family loves music, as you'll see, and it was so great to incorporate that into our session!
