Adi photographed this amazing family portrait session in the Santa Monica Mountains on a perfect spring morning. Amy is the twin sister of one of our all time favorite Next Exit brides so, of course, we were super honored when they rang us up for the shoot. Now, if we could just get you-know-who in here with her you-know-whats, Adi and I would be beside ourselves!

Cat and I could not have asked for a more perfect situation. My sister, Shiri, is 8 months pregnant and only three weeks behind Cat. She’s having a little girl just like us, so our two daughters are sure to be the best of friends. Last week, I had the amazing opportunity to photograph Shiri and Jack’s maternity session and it couldn’t have been more of an honor for me.

  • Shiri Morgan - You guys rock! Like always….and it was our honor to have you take pics of us! Cant wait for our babies to come! Love ya! Shiri and Jack

  • Monette Morgan - Thank you so much for taking these beautiful pictures of Jack and Shiri. I am delighted that their little girl will have a built in, lifetime, BFF. What could be better? Looking forward to hearing news of Cathy’s delivery VERY soon.
    Best Wishes,

Okay, so you all know how photographers hate getting their picture taken…well, Adi and I are in that boat together. However, spending the afternoon getting our maternity pictures taken by Stephanie, was pure bliss. She had such a way of making us feel at ease as well as making us feel (and look) like rock stars! We can’t thank her and Issac enough for giving us this gift, which we will cherish forever. Our good friend and client, Sherry McAnelly, had the daunting task of doing my hair and make-up for the shoot and lemme tell you, I really felt like I did on my wedding day, as beautiful as ever.

The last two pics were taken by Adi in our studio after Steph’s shoot. Isn’t our new backgroud the coolest thing ever?

My due date is three weeks from today, so I guess this little baby girl could come out any second!!

Of course, we were thrilled when our friend Vivian referred us to her adorable best friend, Becky, and then fiancé Brendan, who were getting married on Leap Day 2008 in Palos Verdes. Adi had so much in common with the groom and I hear the whole crew was laughing all day long. B&B chose to have an intimate and sophisticated evening with their closest family and friends and focused on good times and (amazing) photography. 😉
As always, it impossible not to have the perfect affair when the folks at La Venta are taking care of you. They really get it!

Adi and I had the pleasure of photographing emerging artist, Kristie Fujiyama Kosmides, for her new PR kit and other media resources at her studio in West Hollywood. It’s always nice to be hired to do this type of creative work and we jump at the chance whenever it comes our way. Kristie has a show coming up on April 5th in Culver City and I encourage all of our blog readers to stop by and see (or purchase!) some of her amazing work.

  • Jennifer Wilson - These are awesome you guys! Love the bright colors – so fun and cheery 🙂 Very cool artwork, also!

    jen 🙂
