Alhambra, Monterey Park, Arcadia Family & Child Portrait Photography with 2-1/2-Year-Old Toddler & Yellow Lab Puppy

This family was such a delight to photograph.  We spent a beautiful afternoon with them in a Pasadena park.  Evan and Bellbird are probably two of the cutest subjects ever to be on the blog, and with a two-and-a-half-year-old toddler and a two-month-old yellow Labrador puppy in the same portrait session, we were sure kept on […]

Chi - Fantastic shots! Favorites are: Evan climbing up the twisted wood/roots, Evan hanging off of said twisted wood/root, and Bellbird and Evan eyeing each other.August 11, 2011 – 1:48 pm

Sophia Chang - A baby AND a dog? That is not easy, sister! I surfed over from your Amazon deal and could not stop browsing. Loving your work :)August 11, 2011 – 12:25 pm

Kim - I really love all your photos with Evan. My favorite is the one of him swinging on the arch, and you captured his joy so skillfully. Beautiful work!June 23, 2011 – 2:12 pm

Evan - Very cute photos. You’re so good with light! The tree trunk was a creative spot to pick. It looks like it would have been difficult to get enough light on Evan’s face there, but you made the photos look amazing! Incidentally, I commend Evan’s parents on the excellent name choice.June 16, 2011 – 4:10 pm

Marci - How adorable is he!! I love the lollypop shot, him swinging from the arched tree/vines and this last one with the family altogether.June 15, 2011 – 5:35 am

Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena, & LA Child & Family Portrait Photographer | 2-1/2-Year-Old Toddler & Yellow Lab Puppy

A two-and-a-half-year-old toddler and a two-month-old yellow Labrador puppy.  Can you get anything cuter than that?  Evan is such an adorable, active little boy, and Bellbird the yellow Lab is such a playful, lovable puppy.  We had so much fun running around with them in a beautiful Pasadena park.  This is just a sneak peek […]

Chi - I want to scoop this puppy up! This is a perfect scene, and I love the shadows playing across boy and pup.June 3, 2011 – 1:05 pm

Marci - Oh, how precious!!! Evan must have played hard with the puppy, looks like Bellbird is taking a quick rest. (grin) The little crocs on Evan’s feet are so cute too. I didn’t realize they made them in that size!June 3, 2011 – 6:25 am

Kim - Look at how happy Evan looks! Probably the cutest two subjects you’ve ever posted, and I love how beautiful the light is in the photo.May 19, 2011 – 12:50 pm

Peggy - Can’t decide which is cuter – Evan or Bellbird. He looks so happy and the puppy absolutely indifferent. Wonder which was harder to capture??

The blurred background makes you focus on the boy but then the eye is drawn down to the dog and the sticks, typical boy necessities. Love the composition.

This photo is sure to be a family treasure.May 19, 2011 – 11:49 am

Evan - What a nice post to remember the summer! Your photos make me feel like I’m at the beach. And the kids are so cute. I admit that it still sounds like fun to dig a hole in the sand and fill it with water.October 7, 2010 – 10:24 am

april - So cute! I love how happy they are and the concentration when they’re working in the sand.

Totally unrelated, but I love that purple hibiscus beach bag, too.October 7, 2010 – 6:39 am

Long Beach and Pomona Children’s Portrait Photographer | Post-Processing: Before & After

Post-processing is something I haven’t really talked about on the blog yet, but it’s a critical part of my workflow.  In general, I try not to do too much post-processing to my photos, so that they’ll stay looking natural. The image I’m going to go over today is one of my favorites.  These two boys […]
