Los Angeles Family Photographer

      With a fresh approach to portrait photography, I create images full of emotion and beautiful reality.  I believe wholeheartedly in the power of print and the treasure of a family heirloom and provide a carefully curated line of exceptional artwork for your home.

      Each of my portrait sessions is as unique as the family I’m photographing.

      I also photograph newborns & maternity. If that’s what you’re after, please click the button below.

      Your Portrait Experience

      A Deeper Connection

      Your family portrait experience begins with a creative consultation that will give me an understanding of the special elements that make your family uniquely yours. By truly getting to know your family I’m able to help you distill what it is you want to capture during your family session and ensure that I create timeless images that truly capture the personalities and connections within your family.

      Full-Service Design

      Every session begins with a final product in mind. During your creative consultation I’ll help you plan how you’d like to display your portraits and design your session accordingly. From what colors to wear to where to hang your finished wall art, I am with you every step of the way to ensure that you love your images and your finished artwork.

      No-Stress Sessions

      Your session is thoughtfully planned and designed to be an enjoyable and stress-free experience. I know that every child is different and make sure to go at a pace that is comfortable for your family. I build in plenty of breaks and never impose a time limit. During your session my assistant and I will take care of everything – especially making sure the kids are having fun – so that you can relax and reconnect with your family. My clients constantly tell me that the session was surprisingly fun for them and a treasured time to slow down and enjoy their family.

      Your session will be photographed in your home or at another location of your choosing. If you don’t have a spot in mind, please rest assured that I have many tried and true locations around Los Angeles and will help you find one that resonates with your family.

      “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
