Your family is looking for your Los Angeles Newborn Photography to get covered, and covered in a way that’s tender, beautiful and hopefully not so intrusive that the magic and newness is taken away from this very special season.

Working with this beautiful family was so sweet because this is the second baby we have photographed for them, and the elation was something so special that words can’t quite express, but I hope these photographs do the job. Creating heirlooms that this family will have for the rest of their lives is truly and honor and makes working with families on your Los Angeles Newborn Photography so meaningful and truly a treasure, one that I do not take lightly.

Call the Studio today to get your birth on our calendar and let us help you plan for your Los Angeles Newborn Photography session with Katee Grace.

Lots of Love,

Katee Grace

Working with families from Day 1 of their first child is something very special, and this family is in that group. They were first in front of my camera when A was just 4 months. During this session, is a few months shy of 3 years old.

While planning their Marina Del Rey Family Photography session this year we wanted something different than we’ve done in the past, and something with the summer California feel even though we were shooting in November.

We decided for this to be their Marina Del Rey Family Photography 2017 just off the Venice Pier early Sunday morning, this worked best with the scheduling we were going for and we even topped it off with a fun brunch at Mercedes to make it a complete Marina Del Rey morning.

Since little man loves to take photos of everyone, especially mommy and daddy, I brought my old school Holga camera, it went with the feel of a Marina Del Rey Family Photography session as well as worked with what their little man is actually having fun with these days.

And since Daddy plays Basketball, we incorporated some of their little man’s fun play with his basketball as well, notice those adorable Jordans 😉 … and sometimes with our littles, there are wardrobe changes that get interrupted with play or ocean water…. so rolling with that, I grabbed a shot, in 20 years this photo will get more conversation than any posed photo, though it probably won’t make the family wall, at least I imagine.

This past week I had the privilege of working with the dynamic and talented Darius Carter on some exciting video content to help you have a better peek into what to expect and plan for with your Los Angeles Lifestyle Photography Session.

Your Los Angeles Lifestyle Photography Session is crafted to you, your family’s style, loves, personality and relationships. I work with you to create a session that is as beautiful as it is fun, and I don’t leave you to fend for yourself with random digital images. After your Los Angeles Lifestyle Photography Session  we sit down together to go through your photographs, discuss how you’d like to enjoy and display them and what works best for you style and home, in the short term and long-term.

Los Angeles Lifestyle Photography Session is a time when we want to create memories, and I am here to help along the way with tips on preparing for your session, from wardrobe to directing you and also stepping back while your family interacts. Your Los Angeles Lifestyle Photography Session can take place in a variety of locations and times of day and we talk through what is ideal for your family in this particular season of life.

I hope you enjoy the behind the scenes and little face time with me and I look forward to hearing from you soon and helping you plan a beautiful and fun Los Angeles Lifestyle Photography Session with your loves.

Maternity sessions are a beautiful season in family life, especially for baby number one! As we explored the grounds of Malibu, chatted about how this beautiful family came from a young friendship and easy love, I was once again swept away at the beauty of life, of love and of humanity.

Love is something that is partly chosen, partly surrendered to and fully embraced. As your photographer, hearing your stories and your journey give me a glimpse into the fabric of something that may have been destined but was definitely built and nurtured.

This beautiful couple are expecting their baby girl this summer and it is such an honor to document this beautiful season of their love giving life with this Malibu Beach Maternity Session.

Malibu Beach Sessions are as magical as they look, though they can also be chilly except at the peak of summer. To be honest, a number of my clients choose Malibu Beach Sessions regardless of the temperature because of their gorgeous sunsets, sparkling water and more private beach experiences.

To Book Your Summer Family Session contact the Studio today at: 310-779-1041! We are so excited to get to know you more and create a custom photography session for your family.

As your Los Angeles Photographer working with Bashery & Co is nothing short of a dream. When she contacted me about her littlest angel’s 1st Birthday my photographer’s eye and love for this family went to cloud nine! Harlow’s 1st Birthday was perfection in every way, from the killer ballon banner accented with fresh flowers, the mounted swan, gorgeous and delicious sweet treats, the wardrobe but most importantly the love and fun of this family and their loved ones.

Pamelyn of Bashery & Co didn’t miss a detail or a beat when it came to decor and taking care of her guests! DJ Maasha was in the house, or the yard more specifically, jamming out beats the kids could jam with and adults could enjoy. Harlow’s big sister was leader of the pack when it came to entertaining and jamming, pictured below with a blow up gold microphone! Yes, how cool is that! Microphones for all the kids!! 🙂 The tiaras for each little princess were set up on the cutest stools from Teek and Lace, being immediate hits among all the little princesses in attendance.

As your Los Angeles Photographer I am constantly thrilled documenting not only seasons of my family’s lives but watching your love and enjoyment of life grow. There is beauty in the chaos and it’s a true honor to document that in all of the seasons. While these early years can really feel like the days are long, we know the saying is true that the years are short. Whether it’s a birthday party or special family lifestyle portrait session, the love and beauty is there and having these photos to enjoy for years to come is something I do not take lightly.

When planning parties we all know how consuming they can be, from decor to activities to the photographs. Below you will see all the hottest and best vendors in the Los Angeles Area to make your next party as enjoyable and beautiful as you’re family deserves, if that’s your sort of thing! 🙂

Working with families throughout the years really makes each portrait session more special, the photos and experience more rich, meaningful, fun and intimate. This family of 7 was first in front of my camera when they were a family of 5, and it’s been such a gift to watch them grow individually and together. There is a different lifestyle quality that happens when you have 5 children, siblings and at one of their favorite places, the beach! Tears happened for a second, but comforting followed, but isn’t this how it really is, tears then laughter, pretty fluid with the emotional transitions at certain ages.

On that note I would like to remind everyone that kids are kids, they handle various events in life and a photoshoot or family interaction differently so we always bring patience to the scene. Please never feel the need for perfection, we all know childhood (and babyhood) are filled with everything!! And of course the love and deep abiding joy in your family is what we are after memorializing through your family’s portrait session.

I love getting to grab individual photographs during family sessions… but most importantly my mama’s and daddy’s love having these individuals of their family, and connecting with the kids individually gives them a sense of personal involvement in the session as well.


Please contact the studio for your personalized consultation! I look forward to getting to know your family more and photographing this very special season in your lives.

This newborn photography sessions took us to the beautiful city of Santa Barbara, where Katee Grace lived for almost 10 years before moving to Los Angeles.

Sometimes transitioning with a new baby and an older sibling is as fun as this! This big brother love seriously melted my heart! I go way back with this family, having photographed their wedding 10-ish years ago, then shooting their first child’s newborn photography session and here we are with the second addition.

I’ll share a little from mommy’s viewpoint:

“Our session was simply splendid. Katee made us all feel at ease from beginning to end, even the kids were happy and pleasant around her wanting to play even after! These pictures are treasures to me, even with the extra effort and energy needed even with these sleepless nights, it’s all worth it. Since this is the second time around, I know so acutely that we don’t get these times back. We will cherish these pictures forever. Thank you, Katee.” 

During Family Newborn Photography Sessions when we have older children, there’s definitely a bit of a different flow, one that yields to the seasons and ages of older children as well as that of the newest babe.

We started almost straight out the gate with some sibling love photos due to the excitement of big brother, you’ll see a big of a progression from forced cuddles to wiling kisses… Such is life with a baby and big brother though, right?! Big brothers love hard, as they should.

The cuddle nap time with mommy and her newest babe is one of my all-time favorites. I imagine it printed 16×20 with a wide mat and gold frame hung in a changing room or bathroom… in 20 years I see this mama looking at that photo everyday remembering those sweet, tender moments and early years in a house full of boys.

This year I teamed up with Bashery & Co and some really dope Mommy Friends that you will most likely already recognize.

Pamelyn of Bashery and Co shared with me two words and I was sold… “Kissing Booth.”  We did it kiddie style with the kissing booth and the fairytale like Sugar Bouffant Cotton Candy Cart, both set up to compliment and add to the So Cal Kids carnival like party we were creating in Los Angeles.

Los Angeles Children’s Parties are my favorite! Because I live in Los Angeles and love the amazing moments between childhood friends, parents and your little ones, yummy treats and killer party decor! My photographer’s eye goes crazy with all this goodness! To me it’s magic, and when it’s your party time, please hit me up so we can create and document the beauty in the chaos. I hope our paths cross so, because I would love to add some of your sweet moments to another collection including fabulous Los Angeles Children’s Parties.
