Family Studio Portraits

Family Studio Portraits with the King Family

This fun family studio portraits with the King family was shot at my studio in Old Town Pasadena. And boy did we have fun! In fact, there was this one uncooperative toddler who made it a hilarious session. She did as she pleased showing up on camera whenever she wanted. I was able to get fun and happy shots full of smiles as they laughed when their baby sister march circles around them.

Calamigos Equestrian Wedding

Calamigos Equestrian Wedding with Whitney and Jason

It was great to have worked with Modern LA Weddings on this Calamigos Equestrian Wedding with Whitney and Jason. Nam Lam and Hovik Harutyutyan did such an amazing job styling and coordinating this wedding. The couple, who reside in London, relied on Modern LA Weddings to coordinate this gorgeous wedding and boy were they surprised. Whitney’s jaw dropped as she entered the room. She was amazed beyond belief. Congratulations to the twosome on tying the knot. I feel so lucky to be a part of it.

Millennium Biltmore Hotel Wedding

Millennium Biltmore Hotel Wedding with Loretta and JJ

This Millennium Biltmore Hotel Wedding spared no expense. With grandeur and opulence bursting from the seams it was a fairytale come true. Held at a capacious ballroom and lit up like a Christmas tree by the one and only TMMPro team. This amazing wedding offered a boba tapioca bar catered by Ten Ren. And can you imagine that dessert bar? Loretta, the bride, also had two sets of wedding gowns. It was quite a feast for the eyes. Best wishes to the newlyweds, JJ and Loretta, for such a beautiful wedding and to all that made it possible.

Early Spring Anniversary Celebration

Early Spring Anniversary Celebration

This early Spring anniversary celebration with Chiali Meng and her family had all the right ingredients for a fabulous family portrait session. First of all, this location is so unique.  The location looks like this only but once a year in early Spring. When the almond grove starts blooming in this time of year it looks like a wintery scene. It’s so beautiful and surreal that it felt I was in another world. The most amazing thing is that Chiali styled this herself. I was so glad to be a part of it and the results are breathtaking. Happy Anniversary to this lovely family on their early Spring anniversary celebration!

USC Engagement Session

USC Engagement Session with Christine and Thomas

This USC Engagement Session with Christine and Thomas is utterly beautiful. You see, Christine is an alma mater so she knew she wanted this place for her engagement. They’re such an adorable couple. I love it when a couple has a sense of humor and fun to work with too! Gorgeous couple.  This was my first time doing a USC Engagement Session. I have a feeling I’ll be back here again for another.

Snow on Mount Baldy

Snow on Mount Baldy

When the rain storms came recently,  we knew there was snow on Mount Baldy. Luckily it’s only a short drive away to this mountain getaway. Armed with hot water thermos and hot cocoa, we journeyed to the slopes to enjoy our favorite past time in the snow – sledding. And sure enough it was beautiful up there with clean, crisp air and trees that stood mightily over the snow covered ground. We had an amazing time, met some new friends and I got to take photos to remember it all.

Palos Verdes Engagement

Palos Verdes Engagement Session with Ilysa and Matt

I love this Palos Verdes engagement session I did with Ilysa and Matt. The view from the bluffs of Palos Verdes is to die for. It’s an amazing scene especially when the sun hangs low over the horizon. To start off we photographed at the famed La Venta Inn. This gem of a venue overlooks the Pacific Ocean as well as all of West LA from Redondo to Santa Monica.  And what better way to celebrate an engagement with a bottle of champagne which Matt brought along for their celebratory toast. I can’t begin to describe the warmth of the light that cast along the craggy shore of the beach. So sit back, relax and take in all the beauty of this magnificent location.

Studio Family Portraits

Studio Family Portraits with the Lai Family

The Lai family stopped by my Old Town Pasadena studio to do some studio family portraits.  And boy did we have a blast! I love the cozy and airy feel of my studio because it’s full of light and makes for quite a refreshing change from the routine family portraits we’re all accustomed to. You can see the kids faces were full of smiles. We didn’t do the usual poses because it was all about having fun. And when you’re having fun, smiles become natural and abundant. I enjoyed our session tremendously and the results came out so amazing!
