Los Angeles Child Photographer

      What an incredibly fun session! This adorable little fellow just turned two and his parents were after a session that would mark the occasion and showcase his loves in life (basketball, bubbles, his pup, and a rather stylish pair of headphones). This little guy gets up to A LOT in one day, so we opted for an extended session with a break for a nice long nap in the middle!

      The calm before the storm:

      Before we got too messy, we started the morning with some in-home portraits. This little boy was such a great sport, going about his day of indoor hoops, puppy cuddles and bed-jumping.

      It’s a good life when your foyer doubles as a basketball court!

      Ice Cream: a great cake smash alternative!

      Since his cake was being saved to share with friends later in the day I wanted to come up with a way to capture him enjoying a birthday treat, so we opted to throw an ice cream cone into the mix. There are few things in life more enjoyable than watching a toddler experience his first ice cream cone. Plus, it’s perfect for a warm Los Angeles Spring.

      As you can see, not much of it was eaten, but it sure was entertaining. Both for him, and for us!

      An afternoon in the yard:

      When we showed up after nap-time and this little guy came marching out in his uniform I nearly died from the cuteness. Not to mention that this 2-year old has some real moves! I opted for more documentary-style images for this portion of the session and I love the moments we captured between father an son. I can picture them out here 10 years from now, doing the very same thing (maybe with a larger hoop!).

      After basketball we moved on to bubbles and some family portraits as the sun was beginning to go down. I’m guessing he slept well that night!

      This little fellow couldn’t have been cuter, or easier to photograph. I love that his parents wanted to capture him this way – in all his 2-year-old glory, doing the things he loves best!
