SALMA RAHMAN EXPECTING

meet Salma, a dear friend of mine and married to my awesome dentist, Rafeeq Rahman. I truly enjoy their company and I am so grateful to be a part of their ceremony to support Salma into the next stage as a woman, motherhood. the Indian culture is so interesting. like any other culture they have their own ways of celebrating different stages in life. i just love the colors, the jewelry, and the designs. here are a few shots from this joyous occasion.

Ying + Robert Engaged

ying and robert, two super rad and super creative people. cannot express how cute these two are. we shot around LACMA in LA and strolled a little bit around the La Brea Tar Pits. they really brought their personalities to this shoot and i just love how intimate they were with each other. every time they end up in a elevator or escalator, they have to kiss because to them.. time has stopped for a second around them. what an awesome tradition and a story to tell in the future.

 

 

below is my favorite shot from the day.

logan mitchell allen - amazing people aND THEY 2 FEET FROM MY FRONT DOOR..YOU GUYS ROCK AND SUPER CUTE TOGETHER..CHEERS!

VIOLET HARRISON NEWBORN

i had the awesome pleasure of capturing baby Violet in her newborn stage. she was just a bit over 3 weeks. Violet was able to lift her head pretty well too, she’s so strong already! during this sweet session the woman generation was there to join in for a shot, great grandma all the way to baby Violet. she is blessed with a wonderful family and especially her loving parents Jenna and Matt. i definitely love all the details they put into their nursery. books, designs, inspiring quotes, hand made dolls, hand made blankets and headwear and much more. hope you enjoy this set!

 

Linda - Beautiful photos richard!! Can’t wait for you to do mines!!!!
