I’m clearly a sucker for colorful photos…but sometimes black and whites just get the message across more effectively. This session was so inspiring. Embracing natural light, shadows, angles…truly captures the miracle and beauty of the pregnant form.

  • Viviana Goo Hey! Just wanted to tell you that you have a fantastic little website and I want you are aware how nice it looks. Will be back often.(09.04.2010 03:31am)

Baby it’s cold outside! I just love cold weather. The air is so crisp, so clean – especially after the rain. It’s also a perfect opportunity to accessorize with scarves, jackets, knits & lots of layering. Here are some ideas for family photo sessions with cooler weather in mind.  I adore winter clothes!

And as any person who lives in Los Angeles will tell you – it can be cold one day and warm the next! In which case, lighter clothing (like cottons and soft knits) would be perfect. Spring clothing is also super colorful – which I just love! Color, color, color! This set-up below I particularly like because it’s a wonderful illustration of how a family can “go” – but not necessarily “match”….It’s nice to show some variety – everyone need not wear the same color and match perfectly…clothing like this makes things much more interesting :

  • Casey Hart Very creative - love it!(03.15.2010 05:22pm)

…when I walked into this sweet boy’s home, I was greeted by an entire family of loving uncles, grandmas & grandpas! I’d have to say that this was the most people I have had as an audience during a photo shoot of all time! It doesn’t surprise me one bit though, because just look at how adorable this little boy is. It’s no wonder why the entire family was present!

I don’t always get nice sleeping shots of babies at this age (around 2 months old), but he was such a fantastic sleeper — so I totally lucked out! He was completely okay with having his outfit changed while sleeping…all the while, maintaining this adorably sweet & content look.

And then, after some R&R, he decided it was time to wake up and check out all that was going on!

  • Cecilia Widjaja Lulu, I love it ...its adorable .. Bradley is such a beautiful baby like mommy ...he looks all happy and calm .. hehehe Julie, what a nice picture .. love all the colors ..

  • Stacy Tucker Does my $50 donation to "Help for Haiti Now.org" count or does is have to be to the Red Cross?(01.23.2010 06:02pm)
  • Annie Luecha-Aguirre It is such a terrible disaster, yet the Haitians seem to be a positive people with strong faith and will. I am so proud of how much the American people have come forth and supported humanity in this desperate time of need. I have come to see that no contribution is too small nor too large. There is a kind and generous thought and prayer in each and every donation. Hopefully, we can all make a difference even a little for Haitians. I can't even imagine what is going through their minds...the devastation... physically, emotionally, and psychologically. Let's do what we can as human beings!(01.23.2010 09:01pm)

As if this precious angel’s mother wasn’t beautiful enough for our maternity photo session…to be honest, I knew she was going to be a beauty – but truly, to see her in-person – wow – she is just so lovely. Rosy-peach complexion and so very delicate…It’s true – the world just got brighter because of her :)

Beautiful, delicate, just lovely…

Itty bitty fingers and teeny tiny toes :)

It was an absolute pleasure photographing your little one and getting to meet her in-person! Not only is she gorgeous – but she’s got the sweetest little personality *translated – she let me move her around without waking up – which is so important when photographing newborns*  I’m honored to have been able to capture these special, special moments :) Life is beautiful…and with every newborn session, I have a renewed sense of wonderment about the miracle of birth…and the joy of becoming a parent (now I will go snuggle with my own sweet boy)…More to come!

  • Chris Thank you soooo much for including me in this. I have a sense of what your photographer is expressing after being part of the preparation and planning your baby's room. The pictures are amazing she is stunnning. And by the way...you and Matt are beautiful parents; the love in these photos tickles my heart. God Bless you all(01.21.2010 01:00pm)
  • Shannon Skaff Sweet angel baby! The pouty lips... the dewey skin... the gorgeous parents... little Liv's got it all! :-) Thanks for sharing. We're so excited to watch her blossom and grow! xoxo Shannon + Bryce(01.21.2010 05:03pm)
  • Brandon Welcome To Parenthood! It's Amazing! Congrats To You and Your Family.(02.09.2010 11:35pm)

…his mommy will tell you what a miracle baby he is. He is truly a blessing to his mommy & daddy, and I feel extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to document these memories :)

I always encourage parents to be part of the photos, too. It’s so wonderful to have images together – not only for you, but for your little one(s) to look back on years from now. And as the images below illustrate – the love mommy has for her baby boy is undeniable…

This is my absolute favorite image from our session. The sun light, his sweet smile…and the way mommy is looking so adoringly at her angel.

And here is just one example of how gorgeous his eyes are:

….and his perfectly full pout

I really love photo sessions when babies are around 7 months. Since they’re able to sit-up, we can get some super cute shots of them – pretty much anywhere – and dining room chairs are always a winner :)

This session was the perfect way to kick off 2010!!!

  • Annie Luecha-Aguirre We loved working with Julie! As you can see she was great with Nolen!(01.07.2010 08:38pm)
  • Auntie Jane My nephew is the cutest baby ever!!!! My precious little nolen bear who I love sooooo much!!! Lots of hugs and kisses from his favorite auntie ;)(01.07.2010 09:58pm)
