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.

Last year I met Mercedes when I photographed her beautiful family for their annual family portraits. When she contacted me a couple weeks ago about updated professional headshots I was thrilled and after some chatting about locations and her brand, we decided on some of the professional buildings in Beverly Hills.

Headshots and portraits of mommas and daddys sans children is a really fun experience, totally different than when we have our kiddos in tow for the family sessions but a sweet time and fun to collaborate in creating branding images that will strongly and properly speak to current and future clients.

Mercedes James is serving your Real Estate needs as part of the Keller Williams Beverly Hills Team. You can contact her today at 310-482-9908 or MercedesJames@kw.com 

Mercedes is well versed in her Palos Verdes all the way through to the Valley which makes sense why she is based in Beverly Hills, besides of course her timeless and exquisite taste.

 

I would love to help you with any of your personal branding needs that arise. Helping other professionals continue moving their endeavors forward is always an honor and something that is exciting to plan together. Getting to know you better throughout the process as I find out more about your business, target audience and business goals is a treat but also an essential part of the process involved during your personal consultation.

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.

Mother’s Day weekend is always a fun weekend, the end of school just around the corner, summer days creeping in more and more and a weekend of everyone focusing on the women who keep our feet grounded and our hearts full, Mommy.

This special Mom’s Day Weekend was filled with some mom love of the founders of West LA Moms and their beautiful little families. Check out this killer gold bench I pulled from Bashery & Co rentals.

Starting Mom’s Weekend off with a photo session, getting dolled up and cuddling and smiling with your loved ones in front of my camera sounds like perfection to me!

West LA Moms are a great group for any mamas here in the Los Angeles area on the Westside (though I hear it’s okay if you live East of the 405 lol). Sign up online for their newsletter, download their App to find great exactly the activities you and your little babes want to do on a particular day and even preferred area/time! Mom’s designing for other moms was how West LA Moms was birthday and why it’s been such a vital tool for mamas on the Westside to connect, grow and sometime sip some bubbly with other mamas to keep it real, that is Mom Life right?! These ladies are the go-to’s for the hottest in LA, don’t miss out on the fun and friendships.

Back to these Mother’s Day Weekend photoshoots! We started early in the morning and ended shooting early, in plenty of time for everyone hitting up their next Mother’s Day weekend fun stop, and thanks to a fabulous assistant, the morning light was manipulated just right to create a (late-ish) morning beach photoshoot done right.

We are looking forward to meeting you and helping your photography dreams come to life! Photos truly are the doorways to a season in life that we will always cherish, and Katee Grace Photography offers Keepsake boxes, large wall art and custom albums, and we are more than happy to show these at your consultation or ordering session.

Maternity sessions are always special but hearing the beautiful stories of hopes coming true with your little loves makes it all the more magical!

So over the moon happy for this beautiful couple and their sweet new babe! (**We respect your privacy so this couple did opt to only have maternity shown online while keeping their sweet babe just for their friends and family, and I completely respect that!!

Maternity Sessions are ideal during the 7th month typically. Mommy, your size tends to show your pregnancy so beautifully around this time, you are really in the peak of your pregnancy, glowing and feeling the glow as well!

As a photographer, I am telling people’s stories everyday. From fabulous women in business for their profiles, branding, etc… , to families and the love that is shared even in the midst of chaos. (Which those early years have a lot of.)  And time and again, hearing people’s stories, continues to invite a connectedness to humanity to my neighbor, to my client and to my friend, because our shared struggles bring hope and our shared joys nurture contentment and deeper joy. 

Working with Pamelyn is nothing short of the fabulous fun the photos portray. Her genuine and candid nature not only make working with her a dream but also opens the way for a great community environment within the mom-work space, both online and in real life settings. It is such a treat to see how she so seamlessly integrates her little girls in to the fun when we have shot them altogether, and she makes it truly fun for them. If you haven’t checked out her IG, a quick follow will give you that sweet moment of “Awe” coupled with a little laugh here and there.  Enjoy a little peek into this working mama’s behind the scenes that she so graciously welcomed!

What’s your go-to meal (take out or at home)?

Sushi for sure. Moorea requests it daily!

What was your first job?

My Aunt owned a restaurant and at 12 years old I started washing dishes and busing tables.

Where do you find creative inspiration?

Everywhere! Magazines, store windows, fabrics, Pinterest, Instagram, my kids. I still love flipping through a good magazine and ripping out the pages and taping them to my office walls so I can just stare at them and dream up something cool.

Was there a moment when Bashery was born?

Can you share a bit about that?  I had been thinking about starting something new for a while. I had a few ideas that just didn’t have legs. With a background in events and marketing, my brain automatically goes there. So many people are more conscious of the parties they throw because of Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest. It’s not just about looking good anymore, it’s about building your own personal brand. But, to have these parties that everyone sees on Instagram takes a lot of money or a lot of time and skill. I wanted everyone to be able to have these types of parties.  I knew there were companies that did “Parties in a box”, but all of the items are disposable and I was more into custom made pieces that really take your event to the next level. I looked at current trends and realized Millennials are leading a migration away from ownership to subscribing and sharing: Spotify invades our speakers, Netflix our TVs, Uber our curbs, Airbnb our entire homes, Rent the Runway our wardrobe. I thought why not stream those special moments in life that require a party! And that is how the rental idea was born. I wanted to help people to be smarter about where they are spending their money by allowing them to rent some really cool items. 

How do you recharge/rest?

I think that I incorporate a ton of balance into this crazy life which is probably why I don’t “rest”, but that’s just the way I like it. I don’t like to sit still, have never been a fan of naps and get more done the busier I am. I work all night and am with my kids all day, but I never miss an eyelash (even if its at midnight), nail or hair appt. and always have time for my girlfriends who are the best anti-depressant rechargers out there!

Do you have tips for new moms on balancing your relationship with your husband and your career with young children in the mix?

A whole lot of patience, a lot of love and forgive and forget easily. The shit’s not easy and if someone tells you that they are lying. Be honest and ask for help and don’t feel guilty wanting to do something for yourself. You need to do you and feel like a normal human being and then everyone is happy. Oh and GOOD LUCK!

What is your favorite part of Bashery & Co?

The potential. It’s only just the beginning. I feel such a sense of excitement for the future and that, in my mind, is what its all about. Without that, what am I doing this for?

If you had to pick three defining words to be known for in 50 years what would they be? 

Genuine, Fun and Inspiring

Working with Pamelyn of Bashery & Co is a dream! Working on professional and branding photographs with creatives or straight up business people is one of the highlights on my shooting schedule! Call the Studio to set up your consultation today!

Newborn photography is so dreamy but 6 months is probably one of my favorite ages! The giggles are remarkable and so easy, but the mobility isn’t quite there so as adults we can still really run the show without any tricks 😉

I hope you enjoy this dreamy Marina Del Rey Family 6 months shoot, they made it so fun with the beach white living room to the rooftop moroccan tent, this photographer was in visual heaven.
