Whimsical Sister Beach Photography Session: Corona Del Mar

As summer technically comes to a close here in Orange County, the warm rays and hot temperatures remind us of how summer wants to stick around some more. On this hot September day, I had the wonderful pleasure of chasing around two cute girls for a whimsical beach photography session to end the summer season. These sisters were so playful and loving as they shared some snuggles down at the beach. A little ruffle tee pee, flower crowns, and lace create a whimsical setting for the girls to play. Little miss Ellsi was so adorable in her pink flower crown and lace blush-pink dress, doing the hula and taking care of baby sister Mila. Miss Mila was ever so sweet in her vintage creme dress. Both girls were in awe of the waves and wanted to play on the sand and splash in the ocean during their beach photography session.

Ellsi was such a ham doing the hula for me on the rocks of Little Corona Beach in Corna Del Mar. She reminded me more than once that she had just taken a Hawaiian vacation and learned how to do the hula properly. Her favorite movie at the moment is Lilo and Stitch, obviously!

Sister LOVE BEACH PHOTOGRAPHY SESSION!!!

The ruffle tee pee created a nice hideaway from the bright sun during the session. Both girls loved playing inside and taking a break in the shade.

I am glad we were able to spend some time together down at the beach, digging in the sand and smelling the salty air. Beach sessions are always exciting and fresh and you never know what is going to happen. I am so happy to have captured these sisters together, enjoying the warm, sunny day.

Los Angeles Boudoir Photography: Miss Lauren

I am so in love with this session from  a few months back which features Miss Lauren and all of her sexiness. We met at the Viceroy Hotel in Los Angeles, California for an afternoon of all things boudoir and sexy. We toasted the shoot with some champagne and strawberries as Lauren relaxed in the makeup chair. While getting all dolled up, we sorted out her wardrobe and jewelry choices for the shoot. Lauren was a bit nervous at the start of the shoot but quickly relaxed and became the fun and flirty bombshell that she is. 

I mean seriously, LOOK at these legs…

I love the image below, the lighting and mood created with the black and white treatment of the photo. So simple, yet powerful.

Thanks to Lauren for making this a super fun and easy shoot. She was so willing to play around with different poses and sets in the room and was comfortable interacting with any surface available from the countertop to the glass coffee table. Super hot and sexy shoot!!!

Boudoir Photography: Miss T in Paris

In the late spring of this year I had a wonderful opportunity to travel to Paris France for a photography retreat. At the retreat, I met some amazingly talented, insightful, and gorgeous women. One of the retreat attendees, the beautiful Miss T let me photograph her at our hotel. Miss T was such a joy to shoot for a multitude of reasons.  For starters, Miss T’s look is so very unique, she has beautiful sleek, long black hair contrasted with her porcelain skin. Her look especially stood out in the leopard room of the St. James Hotel. She really let her hair down for this shoot and showed me her fun, playful, and flirty side for the camera.

 I love how creamy Miss T’s skin looks in these black and white shots. Showing off her sultry side in this shot, Miss T is working it! Loving the contrast of red, black, and white in these shots. Combined with her personality, wardrobe, and styling, this shoot was so fun to look back on and remember the fun time we had taking these photographs. Thanks Miss T for such a wonderful experience.
