Trails of Glitter

There's a new blog in town! For years now I have wanted to start a new blog so I could have a separate outlet to put down my random thoughts. As much as I would like to do that here often, I find it hard to do so. I feel like people come here strictly for our professional photography and that's what I want to give you. I will still include some personal posts because I do think it gives potential clients a feeling for who we are, but random posts will be done on the new blog. I'm so happy that I finally had Art put something together for me. All I said was "I want it to be glittery and pink, my two loves." I love how it came out, especially in such a short time.

The name of the blog is Trails of Glitter. If you know me in person, then you know I love, love, love anything with glitter. You could give me some Crocs covered in glitter and I would automatically think they are the most beautiful things ever! Really, I'm not playing. I guess you can say I am obsessed with glitter & sparkle, and, really, anything super girly. After all, I'm just a girl :) Too bad Art is not into my glitter obsession. As a matter of fact, I'm starting to think he has a phobia of glitter. This past Christmas season I added to my Christmas decoration and, of course, most of the things were covered in glitter. Somehow it would always end up getting on Art :P He literally cringes when any of it gets on him. Anyway, after I was all done decorating, Art noticed I had left trails of glitter everywhere. When he pointed it out it stayed in my head. I like the idea of leaving trails of glitter wherever I go. Imagine, the world would be even prettier and fun. At least to me it would be. To Art, not really. Anyway, that's how the name for the blog came up. I wanted something that described me and my likes, something personal.

The blog is not going to be anything serious or full of deep issues. Quite the contrary. It will probably be full of mundane stuff, like To be honest, I don't really have a specific direction where I'm headed with this blog. It really will just be about anything and everything I personally find interesting, including personal photography. It might get annoyingly "girly" and it might be full of smiley faces and exclamation points, but hey, that happens here, too! <----- See! :) I will also include wedding related posts that I think might be helpful or inspiring. I'm telling you, there will probably be a little bit of everything.

If only one of you reads it, I will be a happy girl, but really I just wanted a separate blog to start as a personal hobby, even if nobody reads. Sometimes it's nice to have that personal time to just write (or in this case, type) about the simple things in life. I hope you join me there too and maybe leave a little blog love. It will really make my day!

Los Angeles Newborn Photographer

You may remember Linda and Anthony from their engagement session (CLICK HERE) and their wedding (CLICK HERE). When I got an e-mail from Linda the following year after their wedding asking us to photograph their maternity session, of course I was surprised and super happy! I know I am about to sound like a broken record, but that's okay because I truly mean it. It's such an honor to have our couples come back to us and allow us to continue documenting their love story.

Linda's maternity session was last year and I shared a photo of it. I will share a few more today ;) Even better? I have absolute cuteness to share with you! I photographed their baby last month and she was soooooooo cute!

Couldn't decide between color and black & white :)

Now, time for the baby!!!!! Cuteness overload, I promise you!

Prettiest little mermaid that I know!

Quick tip if you are planning a newborn session: you need to allot enough time for a session because we are all working around that itty, bitty person's time. We literally had to stay double the time planned because baby girl was not feeling all the wardrobe changes :p It's her world, we are just in it! los angeles newborn photographer, at home, relaxed portraits, orange county, santa clarita, san fernando valley, nataly lemus photography, child photography, newborn photos, pictures, reviews, nature maternity session, forest, woodsy, southern california

Andrei's Conscious Cuisine and Cocktails Wedding Photos

Dania and Will ~ Married

Hyatt Hotel

Andrei's Conscious Cuisine and Cocktails - Irvine, California

Let me start off by saying that I fell in love with all the details at this wedding. I love glitz and glamour and this wedding had it all! From sequined bridesmaid dresses to the bride rockin' red lips to white drapes and sparkling everything. I'm telling you, I fell in love with it all. Of course, I couldn't expect any less, seeing that Dania's best friend happens to be Vanessa from V3 Wedding & Events.

Dania wasn't too sure about wearing red lipstick but I am so happy her bridesmaids convinced her to wear it, because she looked gorgeous!

Time for the first look!

I love the emotion in the photo below <3

A shot with the girls before walking down the aisle ;)

Dania and Will had a night time ceremony. I loved that it was in the middle of tall buildings, across from Andrei's Restaurant. It gave it a city feel.

I loved the lighting for this wedding reception. They had different color uplights that would also change from time to time, depending on what was going on at the time. They also had pin lights that made everything even more beautiful. The drapes made it look glamorous. They seriously made their reception venue look like a whole new place!

I love, love, love the photo below!

Sweet father/daughter dance moments

I usually include a behind the scenes image of us working but this time I'll include one of Vanessa. She was super amazing that day. Not only was she Matron of Honor but she also helped with so much more! She's amazzzing!
