This Austin family is expecting their first little one! We met at Auditorium Shores to celebrate this beautiful moment in their lives. It was extra special because this was their first photoshoot since moving to Austin from the midwest last summer. Welcome to Austin and congratulations on the new addition to the family!
As recent California transplants, this family wanted to celebrate their first holiday season on the golden coast with a beautiful beachy Malibu family photo session. On a (very windy!) day we shot at El Matador Beach and despite the windy weather we got so many sweet moments of this family snuggling together and exploring in the beautiful golden light.
Love that the Rivera family decided to do family pictures while they're assigned to Southern California on a travel nursing gig! Their family is so fun and adventurous, one of their boys took an accidental dip in the ocean (those waves are unpredictable!) and still managed to smile afterward.
This family has so much to celebrate! A 14th wedding anniversary and two beautiful children, and the many blessings of their life together. They opted for a family photo session to commemorate!
The Schetter family loves being together and making one another laugh AND they love their furry friends. They had the adorable idea to include their family pets with their holiday photos this year and the result couldn't be more darling. To be honest, looking back I do not know how on earth we got all the horses and dog and humans to look the same direction at the same time (thank God for digital photography) but I'm so glad we gave this a shot!
I'm so glad the Slones stayed at Calamigos Ranch so we could take their family pictures together on the property! The Ranch is such a beautiful natural setting for photos (it's no wonder it's also a very popular wedding venue!) filled with mini-forests and cultivated gardens. We shot these photos mid-morning while the grounds were quiet and explored some of the gardens and buildings on the property. Lucky us we happened upon this very stylish chair for some editorial-style family pictures to go along with the more casual, natural ones.

Please note: Calamigos Ranch is not open to the public. It is a private guest ranch, which means only guests staying on the property are allowed to schedule photo sessions. If you are planning a stay at Calamigos Ranch, give me a shout and let's schedule a family photo session for you!
This was a fun grad-plus-family combo! The French family all convened in Malibu to celebrate the graduation of their daughter Carolina and spend some time catching up at the beautiful Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, CA. Family photos together on the Calamigos Ranch property was the perfect activity to explore the grounds and get everyone dressed up before their celebratory dinner out. Congrats to the French fam on all the exciting milestones you're celebrating together!
Every year around the solstice, there's a SUPER low tide in Malibu that exposes beautiful Broad Beach as a shiny mirror. If you're lucky enough to have a colorful sunset on that same date, and lucky enough to plan family pictures on said date, the resulting photos are sure to be magic. I'm so glad the Schetter family (with a little planning and a little luck) got these beautiful Broad Beach Malibu family pictures to adorn their walls. (Click Read More to view their gallery.)
Another day, another golden sunset, another beautiful beach family photo in Malibu, California. The Berggren family drove down from the bay area for a long weekend visit to chase away the Norcal mid-November blahs... and it worked! They were blessed with warm breezes and sunny afternoons and a sweet sunset session at the beach, to create some memories of this family adventure.
This sweet family's Malibu beach portraits came at just the right time. Brayden was born the first week of COVID, in isolation, and Kalei missed out on maternity photos and newborn photos. So these photos of 6-month-old Brayden are particularly special because they are his first photo shoot! And that face... what a sweet little nugget!
I loved spending a lovely golden hour with these three at El Matador, capturing a few special moments as a family. And this session was particularly special because Kalei and David are also engaged to be married next year! They hadn't shot engagement photos yet, so this session doubled as engagement pics (with the cutest little plus one ever).
Congratulations Kalei and David! You have so much to be grateful for and excited about, and I'm glad that you can now treasure these sweet moments forever.
