When I have an opportunity to get to know a family and see them grow and add new family members, I get excited about the photo opportunities! Karen and Tommy have been a couple since high school. They were married at Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, which is why they chose the same setting for their maternity session. You can check out Karen and Tommy’s maternity session here.
How We Met
I met Karen working on some of the same weddings together. She is a hair stylist, of course, I’m was the photographer. We became fast friends and I have been blessed to get to know this amazing family.
Introduce baby Valentina! For this precious session we turned to my natural light portrait studio in Camarillo to capture the beauty, love, and intimacy of this amazing family. At only 6 days old Valentina stole the show! She is surrounded by so much love, care, and admiration that these emotions pour out of the photos. Tommy was so enamored with his new daughter it was hard not to take hundreds more photos. We were able to capture the love in raw motion of the moment. I’m excited to provide this sweet family with an opportunity to look back at this moment that will inevitably bring instant joy to the hearts every time they are viewed.
Now..please enjoy some of my favorite photos from our session!
