Venice Beach Canals Engagement Session


Maira & Sal ~ Engaged!
Venice Beach, California

Maira and Sal chose the Venice Beach Canals for their engagement session photos. It's always so much fun getting to know a couple better in front of our camera and away from the camera, too. I got to know Sal and Maira a little better and can tell they are even more amazing than I initially thought! Sal was up for anything that Maira wanted, which describes the perfect husband-to-be! Maira was so sweet and we could literally talk about anything, from makeup to sports :)

Maira & Sal: I can't wait to photograph your wedding! Thank you for being such a sweet couple! xoxo, Nat

Happy (Belated) Valentine's Day!

I hope you all had an awesome Valentine's Day! Ours was spent at home with our babies. Perfection, to be honest! We did some crafts with Gracie and cuddled with baby Art. We also took some photos of them to put in their scrapbooks later on. Gracie is a little ham in front of the camera, as you can see above. I love, love, love photographing my baby girl. She is so full of personality and that smile is everything!

(Look how much he's grown!)

Baby Art is not as fond of the camera, but it's understandable...he is just two months old. He may not be fond of the camera, but I have so much fun taking pictures of him! I loved dressing him up in his little Valentine's Day knit outfit and all the other cute baby boy outfits. The little suspenders and bow tie were the cutest and I added the hearts to his pants to give it the Valentine's Day theme. It took about 1 hour to get a couple of photos of him, but taking care of a toddler while trying to take photos of a newborn is a tough task. We ended up having to do individual photos but hopefully next time we try we can get some of the two of them together. 

It's been hard getting as many photos as I would want of baby Art because Gracie wants to touch him or move him or get into some type of mischief while I am trying to photograph him! So I end up postponing photos until the next time. It's one of the reasons why I didn't get as many newborn photos as I wish I had of him, aside from the iphone photos that are just not the same :/ Now I understand why you hear so many parents say that the second child doesn't get as many photos taken as the first child. That's why I made it my mission to set time aside to focus on taking photos of him for Valentine's Day and they came out amazing! I will be sharing more very soon, once I get a chance to edit some.

Wow! Just realized how much I typed about a simple thing but I guess now that I am a mom, I can really go on and on about them! I never knew I would turn into such a parent :P I love it, though and I love these two little people so much! 

I hope you all have a great week!

Greystone Mansion Wedding

Wedding Photos ~ Greystone Mansion ~ Beverly Hills
Ceremony ~ St. Monica Catholic Church ~ Santa Monica
Reception ~ Il Cielo Restaurant ~ Beverly Hills

I'm back with our first wedding of 2016! It was a beautiful, chilly January day, perfect for a winter wedding! This beautiful couple decided to do their wedding photos at the amazing Greystone Mansion. We've photographed a wedding ceremony there before but this time we just did their first look and their portraits. For anyone planning to take pictures here, let me just tell you that they are super strict about having a permit. Thankfully we had one! It was the perfect location for their first look. Their ceremony took place in Santa Monica and then we headed back to Beverly Hills for their reception. Take a small glimpse into their sweet day:
