Malvie & Reuben: Sebastian Leon is on the way!

Somehow, I am always blessed with getting to photograph beautiful Mommies-to-Be, and Malvie was no exception! I met her and her husband, Reuben, on Sunday at the Griffith Park Travel Town. You may notice that I like to shoot in places that give a variety of backgrounds, and the Travel Town provides just that! We started inside an old train to get the awesome window lighting and shadows, and headed to an open field just outside the Museum after that. Malvie and Reuben are my favorite kind of clients cause they were really up for anything! Even though being inside the train was extremely hot, they didn't complain and did anything I asked :) I think this made for some great images. And little Sebastian... I look forward to meeting you in a few months! :)

I first met Allison, and her Mom Trish, through a mutual friend from The Church at Rock Peak. Since then, Trish has been telling me she wanted to get pictures done, but the situation arrived much faster after one of Allison's tooth started to get loose! Then it was a mad dash to get the pictures taken, even though gap tooth pictures would have been pretty cute, too! 

So last Sunday we headed to O'Melvany Park and Bee Canyon Park, a place with beautiful backdrops, and amazing light. I love this place because you can look like you have shot in 3, 4, 5 separate places, and yet they are all just steps away from each other!

Allison kept a GREAT smile and personality the whole time, and you could really tell she enjoyed being a little model. When the energy started to get low, Mom would step in, and Allison's smile would light up once again. One of my favorite parts of the day was when Allison would say, "I love you!", and Trish would respond, "I love you more!", and Allison would finish with, "I love you most!"

As always... thank you to Whitney, my awesome assistant! :)
