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.

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.

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?

Neo Modern Portraits

When Olga saw her friends portraits at her home, she called and said, “I have a look that I would love you guys to create for my family. Do you know of a location that has a slightly romantic feel with interesting hardscape and gardens?”

We had a private location that fit her vision perfectly. We consulted with her at her home to finalize details and wardrobe, and secured a fabulous make-up artist to complete their look. Surprisingly, everything needed to be coordinated around their beautiful German Shepard Xena, the warrior princess.

Everybody had a blast, and the grandparents were thrilled to have a multi-generational portrait. The portraits are now hanging in their home as rich sepia tone’s  etched into metal that has  a dramatic impact on the entry foyer.

We had a wonderful time at our secret garden location, Izzy and Juliet were so excited looking for fairies in the falls.  Paul and Lauren got a real kick out of the girls when they saw the geese and peacocks.  This is one of those shoots that really don’t feel like work at all.
