Cespedes Family Portraits


What a unique opportunity to work with a proud Cuban American family. Matriarch and Patriarch, Isabelle and Henry, came over to the U.S. during the Cuban Revolution of the 1960’s. We had some fierce commentary and debate regarding the current U.S. administration and policy, making this a fun and memorable session. The Cespedes family put a lot of effort and importance into these portraits and it truly shows in the final images.

Tohl Family Portrait


The Tohl family was so much fun to work with and this is one of our favorite shots of all time. Expertly composing this image within their home that Mr. Tohl (as an architect) built and including the family’s love of music required us to get out of our comfort zone and bother the neighbors to hop on the balcony of the sister building next door. We captured the comfort and fondness for the home in each family members face as well as using angles and dramatic lighting to just make this shot pop.

Taylor Family Casuals


We were very honored to be asked back into the Taylor family’s lives for Riley’s Bar Mitzvah, after shooting his parents wedding 17 years earlier. These are only a few of the casual shots we created and they stand on their own as family portraits.

Saffel Senior Portraits


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”.

Monkarsh Family


The Monkarsh family is so much fun and we consider them more than just clients, they are part of the family. They absolutely love music and it’s hard to find a corner of the house without a musical instrument in it, including Steve’s cool collection of guitars.

EP Music Shoot


We met up with our stylist Laura down in Venice, and as a team we created some great images with such emotion and ambiance. Laura expertly matched wardrobe and makeup to compliment the scene giving us the perfect shot every time. Charolette was just a treat to work with, trusting us to evoke the feeling of her music in her portraits.

The Thomas family are a joy to work with. They exude southern hospitality. We had numerous setups throughout their home, every one better than the last. At the end of the session we decided we had to highlight these college bound boy’s athleticism. This last show below turned out to be their favorite of the day!

Anfisa Maternity Perfection


We met Anfisa while she was browsing our exhibit at The Commons. We were immediately taken with her striking beauty and adorable daughter Dominique. After talking a bit about her family we knew we had to work together. She agreed to be the subject of our next maternity shoot and it turned out perfect! We loved working with the whole family. They ordered two magnificent metal prints of their black and white images to make a distinct statement in their home.
