Nothing says the beginning of Fall like a Flu for 3 weeks. Seriously. Not. OK. I’m back though! Ready to jump into the Holiday Season, of course, with one of my favorite families. Remember this gem from last year…   Well, here he is, 18 months old, and beautiful as ever!

It is so crazy how fast kiddos grow. I met Natalia and Diego when they were pregnant. The anxious and excited parents-to-be. Now, all of a sudden, they have an 18 month old! Ack! How does that happen?? My two favorites from their maternity and newborn shoot…   A year and a half later, this […]

Holy cow is this heat intense! I’m not complaining though, I swear. The last two summers in Manhattan Beach have been less than stellar. So bring on the sunshine!
