      The experience of working with Ariel and her staff was one of complete ease. I'm not a huge fan of having my photo taken, but I wanted this photo session to document this special time in our lives. Ariel made us comfortable enough that my daughter started suggesting other setups and shots. It was so fun to see my daughter starting to guide the photo shoot a little. The final result shows this attention to detail and her love of what she does. If you're thinking about having a photo shoot with your family, and I can't stress this enough; DO IT. They are only young once, and life is short. And when you do decide to do this? Make it easy on yourself and call Ariel. She ROCKS. - Jeff, Los Angeles, CA

      Ariel is a fantastic businesswoman and incredibly talented photographer. She guided my family and I through every step of the portrait process and made it a special experience for each of us, especially my 6 year old. Ariel is incredibly organized and respectful of your time and strikes the perfect balance between listening to what you want and suggesting things she knows that work. The results were easily the best pictures of our family to date. I wouldn't hesitate to use Ariel again and emphatically recommend her to anyone looking for this service. Book her while you can! - Nina, Hancock Park, CA

      Ariel is amazing! She was so lovely to work with, and our kids loved her. Our session was better than I could've imagined. She was quick and had all of her setups planned, and never stressed when something didn't quite work the way she had imagined. She was easygoing and patient and fun. Good photography is an investment, and you get what you pay for - Ariel's work is extraordinary. - Katie, Montrose, CA

      “I was so overwhelmed after my son's birth that I nearly cancelled our session. I am SO GLAD I didn't. Ariel was so gentle with our baby (and with all of us who needed it) and captured the most incredible pictures of our son! My son is 4 months old now and I can't imagine not having his newborn pictures". - Abby, Encino

      What a great service Ariel provides! She took such special care our family, and with a new baby, it was so nice to be taken such good care of and come out with amazing pictures on the other side. I mean amazing pictures. She captured our family perfectly and calmly. Can’t recommend her enough! - Jen, Silver Lake, CA

      Our family had such a lovely experience with Ariel. It was a big transitional time for our family with one child heading to college and the other starting high school. Not only do we now have the beautiful photos to remember, but also the special experience creating them with Ariel! - Jennifer, Santa Monica, CA

      We had so much fun taking family photos with Ariel -- they brought out the personalities of my kids and we got some beautiful photos at the park. We love the finished product, more than a photographer Ariel is a true artist and puts all her heart and talent in her work. I would highly recommend her-- she made the process fun and easy and my kids loved her! - Valerie, Encino, CA

      Last night, when our house was beyond wild with bedtime routines, I brought our album out. I stopped in my tracks, I stopped grumbling at my kids and saw my kids at their finest, in the sunlight, as they really are. I’m ever grateful to you for seeing the beauty in us. I know, now, where I can look when I need to remember. - Alyssa, Los Angeles
