Mr Green Thumb’s Bath Time

My younger son looks a lot like my husband but I joke that he is my mini-me because he loves gardening so much. He gets quite dirty though when he helps me with the gardening so sometimes he ends up with multiple baths in one day lol. He’s growing up so fast and as much as I love seeing his little personality come out more and more, it is bittersweet since I wish he would stay my baby forever! (I can’t have any more babies so he’s definitely our last.)

I just love his curls. He really needs a haircut but as his hair is growing out more, the roots are more blonde than red and I don’t want to get rid of his gorgeous reddish curls lol.alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1093 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1085 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1086 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1087 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1088 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1089

He loves to grab the phone whenever my husband calls me. :)


And a couple of bonus photos of my three strawberry blonde handsome guys. :) I just love how my cat looks so cozy with my husband in these. He’s so proud…yup, I’m cozy with Daddy!alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1091

Baby Dominic’s 1 Year Birthday Session in Studio

Sweet little baby Dominic came into the studio recently for his first birthday photos! His mama mentioned that she was planning a “Where the Wild Things Are” themed birthday party for him, so we wanted to do kind of a loose interpretation of that theme for his photos. :) I pulled out one of my favorite hand painted backdrops, and some of my cutest little wild animal baby outfits. :) I had so much fun with this session!

Alkistis’ Fine Art of Motherhood Mini Session in Studio

Lately these motherhood mini sessions in my studio are my favorite for breastfeeding photos! I love the way that they capture the bond between mother and child in such a natural, simple manner. Alkistis came into the studio a few months back for her session with her little teddy bear! :)

Nora’s First Birthday Disneyland Family Session

I had met Nora and her family back in the fall for a family session, and I felt so honored to be able to capture her first birthday at Disneyland! We had so much fun and it was quite bittersweet since they were moving out of state shortly after her birthday! The session took place on Nora’s actual birthday which made it even more special. I had so much fun with this sweet little birthday girl. Birthday sessions at Disneyland are definitely my favorite for baby’s first birthday…way better than a cake smash any day. :)alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1048 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1049 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1050 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1051 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1052 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1053 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1054 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1055 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1056 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1057 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1058 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1059 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1060alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1047 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1061 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1062 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1063 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1064 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1065 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1066 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1067 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1068 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1069 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1070

Newborn Twins Sophia & Luke


Sweet little twins Sophia and Luke came into the studio recently and helped out with my training session for new safety assistants! Most of the photos below are composite photos, where the assistants helped provide a safe environment for the babies. This potato sack pose below especially should always be performed with an assistant for baby’s safety.

alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1023 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1024

I’ve been so excited about using these two little pea bonnets for a set of twins, especially in my garden! Originally I had hoped to use them in my vegetable garden, but my boys yanked out the peas when they were playing one day lol. Between my boys and the local wildlife, I always seem to have some challenge in our vegetable garden. Thankfully the rest of my garden is always photo ready! :)alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1025 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1026

I also had a little flower and a little garden gnome in my garden! :)alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1027 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1028

The photo below seems simple enough but was actually a composite too! The twins were taking turns tensing up in this pose, so in order to get one where they both looked relaxed, I ended up creating a composite here too.alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1029 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1030 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_1031

Early Happy Father’s Day!

I don’t usually post much on the weekends, so I wanted to share this today. :) I’m so excited that my knee is feeling back to normal again and I’m ready to do beach photo sessions again! My boys were quite excited to be able to go back to the beach again too. I’m excited about lots of warm summer nights at our local beach!

Every year, for Father’s Day, my husband requests that I make a photo mug for him. I have slacked on it since our littlest guy arrived, so I wanted to be sure to get some photos of the three of my guys together so I can order this year’s mug! :)

I still have a couple of openings for our beach family sessions this summer…know anyone who may enjoy their own Father’s Day photo session? We offer gift certificates! Feel free to email us for more info. You can find more details on our special summer family session dates here:

Home Sick

My boys are both sick this week, so we are a bit bored and cooped up. I’m pretty sure they are both tired of being with me in the house, and they have been anxiously waiting for my husband to return home. My older son (who is normally a super smiley, happy guy), is particularly bummed out about missing the last day of preschool this week.

My normal work schedule is pretty off this week with no babysitter time for me to get much work done (the boys are contagious and just too whiny to be with anyone other than my husband or me anyway right now). For clients waiting to hear back from me, I appreciate your patience while I may be slow to respond this week. I’ve found in the past that when I try to juggle my normal workload with two sick kids, it just gets to be way too overwhelming for me, so trying to focus 100% on getting these two back to healthy again. :) Hoping things should be back to normal by next week!

My Boys At Home – May/Early June

As part of my personal project to start taking photos of my own boys on a regular basis, I have been trying to make sure I take more photos of them just at home, playing, sleeping, etc. I don’t really consider myself a lifestyle photographer, so I often feel a bit of a challenge with these types of photos, but I feel like the more I do them, the more I am falling in love with them. :) It is getting easier for me! I am going to start posting once or twice a month with my favorites of my own two little guys, and you will be able to follow my journey with experimenting into new styles. :)

The first two photos were one of those rare days when I was able to get both of my boys to take a long nap at the same time. Total bliss. :)

alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_0790 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_0791

My younger son is affectionately nicknamed “Mr. Green Thumb”. He is my gardening partner. He jumps out of bed in the morning, anxious to go work on the garden. When I tell him we are going to spend a whole morning gardening, he gets a look on his face like it is Christmas morning lol. His brother much prefers to sleep in late. :)

My older son also much prefers to play indoors. :) He is my little superhero. He loves playing in their newly remodeled play room, especially the trampoline, ball pit and climbing wall area that my husband put together for the boys.alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_0796 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_0797 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_0798 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_0799

My boys wanted a shady area to relax together one morning while I did a bit of gardening work down by my greenhouse. They had so much fun in this impromptu little tent that I set up for them.


They also love exploring my waterfall/pond area. :)alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_0803 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_0804 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_0805 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_0806 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_0807 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_0808 alicia_in_wonderland_photography_los_angeles_newborn_photographer_0809

I have been having so much fun documenting my boys’ daily joy. I feel like it has helped get all of us out of the slump of a few very rough months that I had in terms of some health problems. I’m doing much better now, but after three surgeries, plus a major knee injury for me in just a few months (the surgeries weren’t even related to the injury!), you could see the strain it put on the entire family. The boys have been having so much fun with it, and even the little one has started telling me “get pic!!”.

These three are some of my favorites because they are so different. He actually pointed out this little pocket of light to me in the kitchen the other evening! He pointed at the pocket of light on the wall and shouted “pitty!!” (a.k.a. pretty in toddler speak lol). He stood on a little stool and posed for me, even turning his head for me toward the light as I directed him to do. :) I’m so used to working with younger babies who don’t take any direction, I forgot how nice it is once toddlers start to understand a bit of instruction and direction for photos! He was quite excited when he saw the finished edited photos, and I am so happy that I have such an observant little assistant! I am definitely going to be on the hunt for more pretty pockets of light throughout our house!
