the belly . the ross family

anyone who knows me, understands that i revel in the beauty of pregnancy... i think growing a baby is the most amazing and beautiful time within a woman's life and being asked to capture those newfound curves and changes is an incredible honor. 

Baby Rowan made his appearance this past week and i cannot wait to meet him in the coming months. 

thank you for allowing me to share in your journey...

leslee + beny . the engagement

Leslee & Beny will be married this Summer in Hawaii and I'm SO lucky to have ben asked to join them as they say their I do's... Until then, we had a couple of engagements lined up: engagement photographs in downtown LA and an engagement party in the OC. Once we return from Hawaii in July, we'll celebrate again in LA with a reception for the Los Angeles crowd... These two know how to party. 
Together we explored downtown; hitting the Artist District, Union Station, and a fire escape within a friend of theirs' loft. 
I'm proud to say that despite clenched teeth and white knuckles I climbed that fire escape ready to get the shot. anything for the photograph :) 
hee hee. we had fun !
