amazing aimée • dance portraits

I had just done portraits for Aimée’s son Marco, & she asked about doing some headshots for a project she is working on–choreography to the poetry of Rumi.  I was so excited by the idea of creating portraits that would be interpretations of Aimée as the poetry–romantic, magical, mystical, earthy, sexy, dramatic.  I had such […]

marco • kid warrior

Marco & his mom Aimée are true free spirits.  My photo sessions with them are always spontaneous & led by Marco’s interests & energy.  A year ago, he dressed himself in camo and a motorcycle helmet, as well as took me for a dip in his jacuzzi, dressed in a wetsuit & life-jacket.  This year, […]

welcoming olivia • the thelen family

I had the pleasure of doing Amy’s pregnancy portraits just a couple months ago, & now I’ve had the chance to capture the new blossom on their family tree–Olivia!  We had a very relaxed session in their beautiful home in Manhattan Beach, full of light & fresh air.  Big brother Carter got to snuggle Olivia […]
