Oliver’s Eight Month Portraits – Los Angeles Baby Photographer

There’s something that is just so sweet about super fine baby hair. Especially when the sun shines through it!

We met up with Oliver and his parents for a lovely sunny fall photo shoot to mark his 8th month. I love living in Southern California and getting the warm sunset light almost all year round!

Oliver is such a sweet boy – alternating between watching me intently and giggling with mom and dad. At the time of this blog post we are getting ready to take his first year cake smash photos and I can’t wait to see how he likes it!

Oliver is one of my Baby’s First Year boys! For more of this cute family, check out Mama’s maternity portraits, Oliver’s newborn portraits at home, and his 4 month portraits!

The Patil Family At Home – Los Angeles Family Photographer

When we first were planning this shoot, Mom mentioned having the portrait session at their home and I’m so glad we did! We were able to photograph each of the kids in their bedrooms, doing some of their favorite activities and really capturing the story of this family right now.

The sweet interactions between siblings, the silly playing together because we are somewhere they are comfortable, the quiet moments between mom and dad while the kids otherwise occupy themselves – all the best reasons to book a family portrait session at your home.

This family was so much fun to spend the afternoon with! They made my job so easy!

And a special thanks to Sara of Beauty Hairem for making this Mama look gorgeous!

Sammy is One! – Santa Clarita Newborn and Baby Photographer

Sweet Sammy turned one a few months ago, and we had such a great time marking this milestone with her!

I just love spending a whole year with a new family. I get to watch these little unique personalities develop, as well as capture the sweet relationships each child has with their parents. It is such a special thing to be part of – I could not be more grateful for these Baby’s First Year families!

Sammy is walking all over the place, so we thought it would be fun to do her first year portraits at a local park! She had so much fun checking out the rocks, leaves and sticks everywhere.

We also made this portrait session special with a Cake Smash! Sammy’s mom made this special purple cake – with purple cereal on top – for Sammy to dig into! She started out by delicately eating all the cereal off of the top before really getting messy with the frosting.

To see Sammy throughout her first year, be sure to check out this family’s Maternity portraits, Sammy’s newborn, 3 month portraits and 9 month portraits!

Happy birthday, Sammy!
