Larson Family In Home Lifestyle Session

This sweet family is very dear to my heart! This in home family session was planned to celebrate their new home, after they had gone through some extensive remodeling projects to both the inside and the yard. I love how much their home reflects the personality of their family unit, and it was incredibly special to be able to capture that. Their beautiful home may have even inspired me to order a new couch lol. Don’t tell my husband that was the reason…he may not like the idea of more in home sessions if I come back and start ordering new furniture every time I go to a client’s house. šŸ˜‰

I absolutely love being able to document young kids in their own little world. It documents these early years in such an incredibly special way. :) 2017-10-03_0132 2017-10-03_0133 2017-10-03_0134 2017-10-03_0135 2017-10-03_0136 2017-10-03_0137 2017-10-03_0138 2017-10-03_0139 2017-10-03_0140 2017-10-03_0141

We finished up the night by turning on a movie on their amazing outdoor projector screen! So much fun.2017-10-03_0142

Baby Holden’s Newborn Session

I am always at least a few months or more behind on blogging sessions, and now when I look at little Holden’s photos, it doesn’t even reflect how my studio looks anymore! I have updated and changed all of my backdrops in the past few months, so I left out a lot of the photos from his session. Here are a few of my favorites though from his session!

His garden picture in the little chair is one of my favorite garden newborn pictures…he was such a mellow little guy and didn’t mind lounging in my little chair! :) This photo and the photo above are a composite photos for safety reasons. 2017-10-03_0222 2017-10-03_0223 2017-10-03_0224 2017-10-03_0225 2017-10-03_0226 2017-10-03_0227 2017-10-03_0228 2017-10-03_0229 2017-10-03_0230 2017-10-03_0231 2017-10-03_0232Ā  2017-10-03_0234 2017-10-03_0235 2017-10-03_0236 2017-10-03_0237 2017-10-03_0238 2017-10-03_0239 2017-10-03_0240

Alethea’s Family Session

Alethea and her sweet family met me at my favorite beach spot a few months ago and we had so much fun with their session! Their little guy was a trooper even though the sunset was so late that day. :)

I normally only offer beach sessions on weekday evenings, timed around sunset (for reasons such as lighting and crowds), which can get tricky for toddlers when the sunset time is late, like in the summer. I love this time of year when the sunset time gets earlier, but it has been tricky lately for me to schedule many since I had a window of time in the early evening that we were without an available babysitter for a bit. Thankfully, my favorite afternoon/evening babysitter is available again during the time when I offer fall evening family sessions, so I have opened up a few more spots for family sessions through the end of November! :) I also have one weekend spot currently available!

If you would like more information on my family session options, you can email us here for more info.

Jessica’s Maternity Session

Jessica met me a couple months ago for her maternity session, and we went to one of my favorite spots down the street from here for part of her session, and then came back to the studio for the rest of her maternity session with her sweet boys!

Other than my garden, this trail is one of my favorite outdoor spots, and I love how it is just a few minutes away from us. :)

2017-10-02_0053

I love getting a variety of looks all in the same spot, just varying use of natural light. :)2017-10-02_0054

Doesn’t this mama look gorgeous?2017-10-02_0055

I absolutely love my pretty swing chair in the studio for maternity sessions!2017-10-02_0056 2017-10-02_0057

Baby A’s 7 Month Garden Session

Sweet little baby A came in for a 7 month milestone session in our studio garden! Garden milestone sessions are my favorite option for sitting babies…so many options! If a baby is bored in one spot, there are plenty more areas to go check out! Also, my warm and cozy greenhouse is even available for use year round…rain or shine, even in the cooler winter months. Babies will be warm and cozy in there for winter milestone sessions. :)

I know that babies at this stage put everything in their mouths, so I intentionally plant only edible flowers and grow everything organically for baby’s safety. :) I know most gardens or outdoor spaces aren’t grown specifically with baby safety in mind!

She pulled herself to a standing position for the first time in my little antique crib! She was so proud of herself! Such great timing to be able to capture an actual milestone for baby during the session. :)2017-10-03_0097 2017-10-03_0098 2017-10-03_0099 2017-10-03_0100 2017-10-03_0101 2017-10-03_0102 2017-10-03_0103 2017-10-03_0104 2017-10-03_0105 2017-10-03_0106 2017-10-03_0107 2017-10-03_0108 2017-10-03_0109 2017-10-03_0110 2017-10-03_0112

Baby A wore a mix of clothes her parents brought and options from our studio wardrobe. :) Want more information on our baby milestone session options? Contact us here through our website for more information.

Jameson’s 1st Birthday Cake Smash Session

I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know this sweet little guy pretty well over the past few months, so Jameson got to be the first to try out my new cake smash option in my newly redecorated studio!

I had stopped offering cake smash sessions for a while this year because it got to be too challenging with my own extremely serious food allergy (I can’t even touch regular cakes without getting sick so outside cakes are not an option here unfortunately). I had found a local bakery that was supposedly allergen friendly but they messed up three orders over a period of two weeks for me. Luckily it wasn’t the kind of mess ups that could have killed me but I don’t trust them for the future for sure. There is only one bakery that I actually trust but they are quite far and shipping for a cake is quite expensive so it got to the point where I said “why bother”.

But cake smash sessions can be so much fun! So I decided to try my hand at making a little cake for Jameson. :) I used to bake a lot before we had babies of our own, and now that my boys are starting to get a little older, it’s easier for me to do fun stuff like this again! I decorated the cake with pretty little herbs and edible flowers from my garden (all organic too!). :)

Newborn Baby Koa

Sweet little Koa came into the studio recently with his family for his newborn session! I had so much fun with this session and Koa is a lucky little guy to have such an amazingly sweet big brother to look up to!

2017-10-02_0059 2017-10-02_0060 2017-10-02_0062 2017-10-02_0063

The photos below were requested by Koa’s parents since his dad is a paramedic! I love incorporating special family themed photos like these. It makes the photos feel even more like a treasured piece of the family history. :) I don’t think Koa was as excited about the helmet shot as the rest of us, but settled in enough for me to get photos to use for the composite below. :)

Denot Family’s Hiking Session

A few months ago, I met up with the Denot family at one of my favorite little hiking spots. This family is so sweet and I love being able to capture their family as the kids have grown over the past few years. :)

You can’t tell from the photos (thanks to the magic of my editing), but their littlest actually tripped and scraped her nose at the start of the session. I always like to assure my clients not to worry about any bruises or scrapes on their kids since I make sure to handle all of that in my editing process. This was one of the rare times I’ve seen a family whose kids had no boo boos when they arrived for the session, but that didn’t last too long. šŸ˜‰ Toddlers especially always seem to end up with bumps and scrapes but I make sure that I remove all of that in editing so my clients just remember how sweet and adorable their little ones look!

One of my own favorite things about having a son…being surprised with little bouquets of flowers and hugs. :) <3

Go Fish – My Boys at Home

I try to make a little time on Saturday mornings to edit a few photos of my own boys. It doesn’t always happen, but when I try to remember to make the time to do it, it helps relieve my stress and frustration from dealing with their whining and fighting all week long. :)

They were playing so nicely together here with a fishing game our neighbor gave them. alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_2155
Playing nicely quickly turned into fighting. I still wanted to document the moment somehow so in came some intentional blur. šŸ˜‰alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_2154-1
Our sweet little dog came over to check on them to see if they could try to get along lol.alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_2153-1
When my husband came home, the little one wanted some lessons on how to beat his brother at this game next time. šŸ˜‰alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_2156

Browning Family Beach Session

I love family sessions by the ocean, but I’m not a huge fan of the typical sandy beach spots. I feel like everyone has so much more fun when there is a bit more to explore, like in my favorite tide pool spot, just a few minutes away from our studio. :)
