A Father Daughter Walk in the Woods
A Woodsy Portrait Session in Los Angeles This was my first father-daughter portrait session and has to be one of my favorite shoots to date!

6 Reasons Why I LOVE Photographing 6 Year Olds
Now We Are Six! Can I just say that I LOVE six year olds? These two really made for a fun family session and drove home what I've always known... Six is a magical age! Here's why... Personality!
