Hi! I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 310-980-4361.
I am a children’s photographer based in Palos Verdes, CA. I work mostly in Manhattan Beach, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach and the Palos Verdes Peninsula, but I also travel to other locations. I specialize in on-location lifestyle photography of families and kids. The vast majority of my clients are referred to me by other clients.
A few things to know about my style of photography… I want you to relax and enjoy your photo session! Kids should be kids! Bring your kids’ favorite books or toys, a bunch of different clothing options, and let them be themselves. I shoot all natural light, so my sessions are usually scheduled first thing in the morning or in the late afternoon. Sessions generally last 1-2 hours, and are done at your home, the park, the beach, wherever you think everyone will be their happiest.
