A Dream Come True – Newborn Lifestyle Photography Session

It was an absolute privilege photographing this sweet baby girl, along with her mommy and daddy. Just under two weeks old, she was a perfect little model during her first photo session. These two are going to be the best parents. I loved seeing how they were already comfortable with their role as parents, they are just naturals. It’s my favorite to capture newborns in a lifestyle photography type vibe, but we also did some fun posed photos for this session, including the sweetest crocheted mermaid costume!! Adorable!! Congratulations you two!! She is a doll!

Mini Me Mother’s Day Mini Sessions

Mother’s Day is next Sunday! What better way to celebrate, than by taking photos with your mini-me! This beautiful mom and her precious daughter made for a fabulous photo session. This was my first time working with Amy and her sweet baby girl. Kids grow up fast, the time just flies by, so what a treasure it is to capture these tender moments of mother and daughter together. This little girl was just so full of life. One of my favorites had to be her scrunching up her face into that cute expression!! Adorable!!!

These two are expecting their baby boy very soon! Becky is having a nautical themed baby shower, so she wanted to have her maternity session at an ocean venue. It was the perfect place to capture these gorgeous shots! I really enjoyed my time with them! Congratulations to the both of you! :)

Those lace leggings and princess crown, I mean come on!!! So precious! I wish we had someone photographing the adults being so super silly, trying to get this sweet baby to smile. Always cracks me up how funny you have to get to get those priceless grins! Happy First Birthday, little one!!

Chris and Kaylee Ng – The Reception

Chris and Kaylee’s wedding reception was held at the Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes. It is a stunning location, where the balcony from the banquet room overlooks the Pacific Ocean. Two of Chris and Kaylee’s passions are wine and music, and their party reflected those, greatly! The reception was one of a kind, where the guests were entertained by talented music artists, including Moi Navarro, Katie Ohh, Shawn Hook, Jeremy Koff, and yet another surprise artist from Chris to Kaylee, Jon McLaughlin. Wedding guests were given a USB thumb drive, including songs from all of the artists that played that afternoon. Each table had a featured wine that matched the name of its table. I loved the unique guest book idea, signing the wine bottles at each table. The toasts given by friends and family, were special and heartfelt, with a common theme throughout being how special Chris and Kaylee are, such giving, authentic, and caring people. Everyone had a good laugh, as the bride and groom shared their story of their first date, a Taylor Swift concert! It was the perfect wedding day!

Chris and Kaylee Ng – The Ceremony

Featured

The wedding was at the beautiful Wayfarer’s Chapel, also known as the “Glass Church” in Rancho Palos Verdes. What an AMAZING location for a wedding!! You could feel the excitement from everyone, as family and friends gathered together from near and far, to celebrate Chris and Kaylee. Chris had a special surprise musical guest for Kaylee as she walked down the aisle, the very talented Tyrone Wells. She was definitely surprised! These two are so much fun, and their wedding was filled with lots of laughter and love. Em and I loved every second of capturing this special day!

Chris and Kaylee Ng – The Bride Gets Ready

Kaylee is seriously one of the sweetest people I have ever met. When she and Chris announced their engagement, I was so giddy with excitement for the two of them. When they called and asked me to do their wedding photos, I was thrilled! It was such an honor to be a part of such a special day, celebrating two wonderful friends! The day started at this gorgeous beach house, overlooking the cliffs of Palos Verdes. Kaylee was absolutely radiant as she primped and prepared for her groom. Family and friends helped her get ready, and everyone tried their best not to shed any tears, as to not mess up any makeup! My amazing photog sis-in-love, Emily Rickard, and I loved capturing every minute! Here’s the beginning to the story of the most perfect wedding day!
