This was the second time we had the pleasure of working with Jeanine and Maurice. Their first was earlier this year for their Maternity Session so it was so much fun to be part of their celebration to welcome baby Sydney. She had a lot of fun in front of the camera too and even gave us a beautiful smile for one of her portraits. Their newborn photo session was photographed at our studio at Bella Vita Photography in West Los Angeles.

Happy First Birthday Seamus

Seamus 1st BirthdayI got to photograph Robert and Annette’s son, Seamus during his First Birthday Cake smash this week. It was so fun and so, so messy… haha. I managed to stay clean but I can’t say the same for the rest of the family. We quickly did the family photo session first and then we brought on the cake… yummmmm! It really was great being a part of this very special milestone. Happy Birthday Seamus and may you have many, many Happy Birthdays ahead!

I met up with Lucy and Scott in Santa Monica near the pier on what turned out to be a very busy beach with hundreds and hundreds of people that were there for the Summer twilight concert who knew… (note to self avoid Thursday evenings for awhile), however I love the photo’s and love that you can’t tell from the photos that we were surrounded. Lucy and Scott were a fun couple and super involved in what they were looking for as an outcome to the session, Lucy made a quick trip to Micheal’s and picked up some really cute props that added a fun and whimsy element to their session. Lucy and Scott are expecting a baby Girl in a few months.
