{johanna & jason | e-session}

Johanna and Jason opted to have their engagement session in Hermosa Beach, specifically 2nd street. They are high school sweethearts and 2nd street is where they had their first kiss and from then on continued to have many dates. I thought that was so sweet and had to incorporate 2nd street into their engagement session. Jason is in the Navy while Johanna still lives here, so they don’t get to see eachother very often. After 2nd street we headed to Hermosa Peir where they have many little shops and bars. As a special treat Johanna and Jason often go out for yogurt or ice cream and there just happened to be a Coldstones along the shops. Luckily Coldstones is one of the places they visit together often and as you can see we got a wonderful shot of the two of them there. I had a great time with Johanna and Jason and we got some stunning images. I can’t wait till the wedding. See you guys soon.

{griffin | portrait}

We photographed the Griffins last session for the year at Mentryville. We had planned to photograph at a tree lot where you can cut down your own tree, but we were four days too early and the tree lot was not open. We made a quick decision and decided to photograph at Mentryville. It worked out perfectly, the open fields complemented the winter outfits and the photos came out fantastic. I can’t wait for the Griffins to see the final album with all four sessions of the year.

We had the chance to photograph baby Liam again with mom and dad for their holiday portrait. He is growing up so fast. They decided to photograph in downtown Pasadena, but Liam had a different idea. He just wanted to run around and play with us, but then what would the fun of a two year old be if he didn’t want to play. So we decided to head to city hall so he could run around and we could get some fun playful shots. Run around he did, mom and dad keeping up was another story, lol. We had a wonderful time and got some fun shots.

Sara & Ryan | November 21, 2009
Our Lady Of Lourdes
| La Canada Flintridge Country Club

Sara & Ryan were married this past weekend at Our Lady Of Lourdes with their reception to follow at La Canada Flintridge Country Club. We started off at the couple’s home with Sara and her girls who were a riot and then headed off to photograph the boys. As you can see the boys are wearing kilts (thankfully, the questions still remains if they were wearing anything under those kilts, lol). The wedding was Irish themed with bagpipes at the wedding and reception as well as Irish Dancers at the reception. Everything looked amazing and Sara and Ryan were chill and relaxed all day. We got some awesome shots with the stunning backgrounds at La Canada Flintridge Country Club. Thanks for a fun filled day and we hoped you guys had just as much fun! Enjoy.

{avila | portrait}

Today I photographed the Avila kids at Menntryville. They are so adorable and well behaved. Samantha doesn’t exactly love to have her photo taken, at least not yet. However, Matthew loves to pose, as you can see, lol. In fact his mom told me the first thing he said this morning when he woke up was “mommy, it’s Krista day!” I thought that was the cutest thing ever. Needless to say we had some fun and got some amazing images. Matthew was very helpful in picking out the spots where we should photograph. He is giving me a run for my money, lol. Hope you guys had a good time today and enjoy the images!

{valdez | pregnancy}

I had the pleasure of photographing a pregnancy shoot for some very close friends, Jon & Diana. They are expecting a baby boy, much like the rest of our friends. So whoever is next better have a girl, lol. We had a great time and got some stunning images. Diana learned how to model and try and balance while being pregnant. Jon was hilarious as always, but also so supportive and helpful. They are going to be great parents and I can’t wait to meet baby Valdez. It is always fun photographing friends, in this case it was awesome because Diana was up for whatever. I tried some new creative shots and as you can see they came out gorgeous! Looking forward to photographing baby Valdez in January!

{sara & ryan | e-session}

We had another wonderful session in Pasadena this past weekend with Sara and Ryan. Pasadena seems to be the spot to be this month, which is awesome because it is one of my favorite locations. Sara and Ryan were both great to work with, very easy going and chill. I can’t wait to photograph their wedding later this month. We actually happen to know many of the groomsmen as Sara and Ryan are friends of friends. So I know their wedding is going to be a blast and we are going to get some fun shots. See you guys soon!
