I just saw this gorgeous little family six months ago. Little Lila was practically a newbie. Meeting again just before her first birthday, I am reminded how quickly time flies with our children. I am reminded of how their chubby little hands feel as they grip our pinky finger. I am reminded of how it feels when they finally hit that first year mark, and we look back and can't believe the first year is over.

Let's remember to document every little step, every little toe.

Happy first birthday, beautiful little Lila!

She wore her grandmother's drop crystal earrings and baked cookies just for me. He proposed at Disneyland after stalking her into loving him. This was the first engagement session I've ever photographed where the bride to be actually started weeping with joy just looking at him. That's the real deal. 

These two couldn't be any sweeter, any cuter, any more fabulous if they tried.

And if the fun we had together during this session is any indication of the fun that's going to get thrown down at their wedding, I'm going to need to start power napping right now.

She designed her own dress. She drove to the flower district herself before the wedding to grab the most beautiful stems and create her own bouquets. When they asked "If anyone has any objections" during the ceremony, her dad wiped away a tear and raised his hand, not yet ready to let her go. A groomsman flute solo, a one of a kind opal ring, custom floral robes for the bridesmaids, blue suede shoes. Her deep red lipstick stained his lips during their first kiss.


All in all, it was a day all their own.



A big, gigantic thank you to my second photographer, the lovely Kym from Kym Vitar Photography. I love having you by my side, my blonde partner in crime.
