Saffel Senior Portraits

IMG_3802-web

Liz’s Mom Ann put her faith in us to create her daughter’s perfect senior portraits. We decided to venture into West Hollywood and Wilshire, to find some dynamic, fun locations to shoot including LACMA and the Pacific Design Center. Liz had such a great time in all the locations but it was Ann who fell in love with the above fountain shot and commented it was “.. just so Liz”.

Scheinberg Family Portraits

Scheinbergs 2014

The Scheinbergs are one of our favorite Santa Barbara families.
We have had the honor of creating their family portraits for the past three years and it’s always been an amazing experience.

On this occasion we had planned a beautiful outdoor shoot but mother nature had a different idea when it started to rain. We worked together and created a gorgeous setting on their balcony and inside their lovely home. The kids were such troopers through the whole thing and everything worked out perfectly.

We can’t wait to see them again next year to create yet another set of beautiful images for such an amazing family.

This beautiful Calabasas family has been commissioning portraits from us for several years  now.  With our guidance we were able to work together to produce exceptional photos. The children were very delightful and the parents loved the outcome of every shot, making it a tough decision to determine which ones to display in their home.

A blessing is an understatement when we begin to speak about this shoot. For the first time ever, we were granted the opportunity to photograph not only one set of beautiful fraternal twin sisters but, their older siblings who just so happen to be a fraternal set of twins themselves! How awesome is that? These portraits were taken in their beautiful home where we were able to fully direct the shoot while the parents relaxed . The Watkins were fully cooperative and even tried their hands at being photographers-in-training taking a few shots themselves of their siblings.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! At least that’s the scene right now at LA Live. As much as we love Los Angeles, a little snow, ice skating, and outdoor alpine villages are what we need to get in the real Christmas spirit.

FALL COLORS AND FAMILY FUN

Fall_Family_Portaits-

The Koshkorian’s made it quite easy for us to scout locations for this Fall shoot because their home in Calabasas was filled with an assortment of colors. The children thoroughly enjoyed their time in the peak of the new season; who doesn’t like to play around in the leaves every once in a while?
