Maternity Photos

I recently had the honor of shooting the maternity photos for two people who mean the world to me. At first, the two didn’t think they would be interested in maternity photos, but I am thrilled we were able to capture the beauty and love these two were feeling before their lives changed forever. They are also the parents to my god daughter so this was a special job for me. All the love.

Yosemite National Park

While the benefits of living in Los Angeles can sometimes seem far and few between, it’s never escaped me that I’m only a few hours drive from some of the most gorgeous places on this planet. So when my best friend and I decided we wanted to go to Yosemite for an overnight camping trip and some day hikes, we packed up our car and hit the road.

When you arrive at Yosemite during peak season, there’s no chance you can get a camping spot without a reservation, you’d even be lucky to find parking for your car, and during the winter, much of the park is shut down. However, there is a sweet spot, in April, when much of the park has defrosted and is open, but the swarms of people haven’t showed up yet. Snag a walk up camp site at Camp 4, enjoy the brisk cold weather, the sun lighting the entire valley and the chilling nights.
