It's hard to hold on to your family's sweetest moments in the everyday hustle and bustle of your busy life.

The photographs we make this year will transport you back to this time in your family's life for decades to come.

Los Angeles Family Sessions

Family sessions are fun and relaxed. They are an opportunity for you to drop the reins and enjoy some time with the people you love most. Rest assured that I have a plan for our time together and will give you plenty of direction throughout your family's photoshoot. We'll capture family portraits where everyone is looking at the camera and looking their best as well as plenty of natural interaction. I keep things fast-paced and entertaining for the kids. In fact, they'll probably be asking to do it again the next day.

Your family's portrait session can take place in my Northeast LA studio, nearby Mediterranean garden, or at a custom location.

Studio sessions are the perfect choice for those wanting a clean, minimalist aesthetic and families with young babies. Studio sessions easily accommodate wardrobe changes.

Kind Words

Booking our session with Ariel was easily one of the best family decisions we've ever made! Ariel captured 'us' in the most beautiful collection of photos. The session was a ton of fun and Ariel's attention to our 5yr old demonstrated not only amazing patience but a really amazing professional that understands children and family dynamics, which is probably a factor that separates her portfolio from the crowd and gives clients such beautiful and authentic results.
She's  our new family super hero and we have been bragging about her to everyone!

- Olivier, Los Angeles

"My son's 'sitter session' photos are an absolute treasure. Every one is cuter than the last! What impressed me most, other than the excellent photos, of course, was how gentle Ariel was with my son. She really put his needs first and made sure he was comfortable and happy at all times." - Devon, LA

"Honestly, I didn't have high hopes for our session. Ariel's work is beautiful, but I didn't think our very spirited daughter would stay still long enough for a photo. Turns out I didn't need to worry. Our kiddo had so much fun during the session and Ariel got stellar photos of her... even when she was on the move!" - Julia, LA
