Clean Republic is a brand new cleaning and disinfectant supply company that aims to make a splash in the consumer industry, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic season, when families are taking a new look at how and what they clean. In order to tell their story online via social media and web in a compelling way, it was absolutely essential to have a robust library of photo assets that showcase the product in use, as well as the vision, values, ethos, and aesthetic of the company. They shipped me a box of product with a few specific requests: show cleaning of high touch areas and items, groceries and supplies, the product application to home fitness and any where else around the house that you're inspired to snap photos.
Here are the commercial photos that emerged for Clean Republic's product line: clean and simple photos, lightly stylized, uncluttered backgrounds, and authentic storytelling.
Pasea Hotel is a resort and spa located in Orange County's Huntington Beach, California. Their commercial photography needs included social media content, high-resolution images for use in web banners, digital campaigns, emails, and print pieces.
These photos were captured by me and my husband (assistant photographer for these purposes) during a one-night stay. The purpose of the shoot was to document setting and detail images from the perspective of the hotel's clientele. To that end we enjoyed all the amenities the hotel had to offer, from the restaurant to the pool to the many lounges and cafe spaces, as well as a suite.
Pasea Hotel is a world class resort located in Huntington Beach, CA. The vibe is upscale=surfer-friendly. And if that sounds like a contradiction in terms, just imagine glancing up from your luxurious pool time (post-gastro brunch and pre-spa treatment) to see freshly used wetsuits drip-drying from the balcony railing of one of the suites. That's what I'm talking about. Located on the strip in Huntington Beach, with countless palm trees swaying in the breeze, the spacious grounds of Pasea offer plenty of hiding spots onsite, and that's not to mention the countless coffee shop and sidewalk bistro table hangs within walking distance.
And for the Angelenos who are sad they can't plan a trip to come stay at Pasea.... have you ever heard of a staycation? But don't let me try to talk you into it. See for yourself on Pasea's website >>
And these photos? Just a set of gorgeous lifestyle pics for Pasea's social, web, print, and digital marketing purposes (yes, I love my job).
These Prather kids... they seem to grow up right before my eyes! Especially the twins. It's so much fun to photograph this family as they grow and change and discover more about the world and one another. Each of these awesome kids is a tornado of energy and personality, and the last two are TWINS (which is, like, energy squared). When we planned the family's annual photos, we decided to try something new and head for the Santa Monica Pier on a Sunday evening in November.
Rather than work against the crowds, we decided to work with them, creating little oases of family connection in the midst of the bustle of the pier. Games, ice cream cones, climbing onto and over and through everything. I'll be honest: family photos at the Santa Monica Pier aren't for everyone. It's a little chaotic and at least two people will wind up in tears, usually at exactly the moment that everyone else is smiling. Someone will fall down, someone will wind up with chocolate all over his or her face. But if those are the photos you want (and if you scroll down you might decide those are exactly the photos you want), a set of family photos at the Santa Monica Pier just might be the wild circus ride you're looking for.
"Santa Monica Proper introduces a looser kind of luxury to Santa Monica. Here, along sun-drenched Wilshire Boulevard, within walking distance to the beach, each of the 271 rooms, suites and spaces successfully optimize the city’s abundant ocean breezes and natural light, while the interior design finds inspiration in the organic tones and textures of the local coastline. Santa Monica Proper beckons guests with the only rooftop pool deck on the Westside, a one-of-a-kind setting that includes a Balearic restaurant, bar, and cabanas, where guests are front-row for sunsets over the Pacific; meanwhile, the landmark restaurant, Onda, marks an iconic collaboration between James Beard award-winning chefs Jessica Koslow and Gabriela Cámara."

Pepperdine University's campus in West Los Angeles gives students mental and physical proximity to the futuristic energy of silicon beach, LA's tech hub. Though it's a stone's throw from the bustling 405 freeway, the West LA campus is an oasis where students can clear their minds and devote time to their studies and development.

Downtown Los Angeles Engagement Photographer | Anneleise and Jai's Disney Concert Hall Engagement Photos
Anneleise and Jai are engaged and this is them playing (and kissing) all over downtown Los Angeles and they are fire together and I just cannot wait until their wedding in November. Whooo. That was a run-on sentence but there's just too much to say about this exceptional couple. They remind me of the saying that love is friendship caught fire. Because Anneleise and Jai are obviously best friends, but they're also like two substances that, when brought close to one another, ignite into a wild and beautiful flame that is full of warmth but also adventure. That's how I feel when I think about Anneleise and Jai.
Enjoy clicking through these awesome photos of the two of them playing around at Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Broad, and the surrounding arts district. Here's the secret to how it looks like they have the whole place to themselves.... we shot these at 8am on a Sunday morning. There was literally no one around.
Pepperdine sweethearts getting married at a historic church in the Highland Park neighborhood of LA? It just doesn't get any sweeter than this.
Katrina and Sergio's wedding was so totally THEM. They met at Pepperdine, so their ceremony was officiated by a beloved professor, who delivered his message beautifully in both English and Spanish, to honor the bicultural union of the United States and Bolivia. Bolivian traditional appetizers, Southern BBQ buffet for dinner. Bilingual table decorations. Live music from their line up of ultra-talented friends. Group dancing lessons taught by the bride herself. Desserts baked by the mother of the bride. What a wonderful way to kick off the lifetime of a wonderful new couple!
Venue: York Manor
Food/Catering: It’s In the Sauce

Aaron and Anna picked Pasadena City Hall as the location for their engagement session. Initially when I read the words "city hall" in their email, I was like..... really? A government building? But ten seconds later after I googled Pasadena City Hall, I wasn't confused anymore. This is one of the most gorgeous buildings I've ever seen. With winding stairwells, gardens, walkways, and arches, the 1920s architectures provides the perfect backdrop for Aaron and Anna's timeless style. And the icing on the cake? Across the street from Pasadena City Hall, the corner is occupied by All Saints Church, a stunning example of gothic architecture that serves as another setting for Aaron and Anna's beautiful selves. (Check out Aaron's slick dance moves in one of the outdoor passageways of All Saints Church.)
Jessica and Kyle's sweet ceremony and reception in her parents' backyard was full of tenderness, laughter, tears, and SHOES. (Get a load of Jessica's legendary Badgley Mischkas.) Jessica's dad is a set designer, so the backyard was transformed with a bridge over the pool leading to a sweet barn built for two where the happy couple said their vows under a late summer sunset sky.
Then after sunset, all the guests danced the night away, taking periodic breaks for soft serve ice cream cones from an ice cream truck.
