More than just a pretty picture…

      With a fresh approach to portrait photography, we aim to create images full of emotion and beautiful reality.  We 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. We take the time to invest in our clients to ensure the success of each portrait session.

      Each of our portrait sessions is as unique as the family we are photographing.

      Your Portrait Experience

      A Deeper Connection

      Your family portrait experience begins with a creative consultation that will give us an understanding of the special elements that make your family uniquely yours. By truly getting to know your family we’re able to help you distill what it is you want to capture during your family session and ensure that we 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 we’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, we are 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. We know that every child is different and make sure to go at a pace that is comfortable for your family. We build in plenty of breaks and never impose a time limit. During your session Ariel and her assistant will take care of everything – especially making sure the kids are having fun – so that you can relax and reconnect with your family. Our clients constantly tell us 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 we have many tried and true locations around Los Angeles and will help you find one that resonates with your family.

      In-home Selection & Design

      The very best bit of your experience comes about two weeks after your session with an exciting in-home slideshow (it’s okay to shed a tear or two while you watch).

      After the slideshow Ariel will walk you through the process of sorting through your images and finalizing the design of your artwork. You’ll place your final order during this appointment and a few weeks later your artwork will be hand-delivered to you. Magic.

      Unparalleled Product

      Your family portraits are more than just a snapshot. They are part of your family legacy. We know that the artwork you take home will be enjoyed by you for years to come, and passed down to your children 20 or 30 years from now.

      We collaborate with the best craftspeople in the country to turn your portraits into works of art.

      For the few hours we spend together, many more are spent by Ariel and her team – behind the scenes – perfecting your images, wall-art and albums. At the end of our time together you’ll have portraits that you can hold in your hands and hang on your walls, and enjoy for generations to come.

      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

      Your Artwork

      At Ariel Cannon Photography we believe that your portraits need to be seen and enjoyed everyday, not trapped on a USB or in the Cloud.

      We offer a carefully curated line of quality artwork for your home that includes framed fine art prints, canvases, heirloom albums and matted print boxes. All of our products are custom designed to complement your home and work with your lifestyle.

      You’ll love that little spark of joy you get walking by your family portrait each morning or watching your little ones poring over the family album.

      We work hard to source the very best products available because we know that your artwork and albums will be with your family for generations.

      Digital images are also available.
