Yep, life got in the way and this poor little blog was it’s first victim. A lot has changed in the last year and a half. We welcomed a new baby boy into our family. Baby Emrys is our 3rd boy and he arrived in mid-December…right in the thick of holiday sessions! We couldn’t be happier! It’s kind of nuts to think we have 3 children. They are all so different and beautiful in their own way. You would think I have a bajillion pro photos of my little dudes but I don’t. I mean, I have a metric TON of iPhone photos (lazy mom). To re-start things off, here are a few (non iPhone) pics of my little fellas! I’ll be back tomorrow with a work session to blog. Enjoy!
It's so hard to believe that we are already in 2018! 2017 was a fabulous and busy year for us here at GLP. The last few months were so crazy I unintentionally put my blog on the back burner. I can't believe the last time I blogged was August (smacks head)! I think I'll kick off the new year of blogging with a really special senior photo session I did back in October. Just wait until you see these two beauties!! This session took place only 13 days after both of these girls were shot at the Route 91 Harvest music festival.....can you imagine!? Their spirit and strength to press on was so moving. Here are a few highlights from this very special session. Enjoy!
Pregnancy is a strange and beautiful thing. You go from happy, to sad, to ambitious, to nervous, to excited, to elated, to frustrated to elated again...you get the picture. The last thing on my mind when I was pregnant with my two boys was getting dolled up for photos. I mean...shave my legs?!?! Ha!!!! I totally regret not doing it though. As my clients helped me discover through my photography career, it's not just about pretty pictures, it's about the moments. This shoot was just that! Enjoy!
This past weekend in Malibu was dazzling! We are still swooning over this beautiful couple and their perfect wedding. The music, vibe, details, location, bride, groom, wedding party and well...everything was so good it was almost hard to believe!! Here some of the preview shots I sent to the happy couple. Enjoy!
It was only a matter of time before Mason's parents came to me for some modeling photos. When you know, you know! This kids adorableness is RIDICULOUS! I've been shooting him for almost a year now and it just keeps getting better. Here are a few snaps from his first, of many, commercial shoots. Enjoy!
Talk about the most chill couple ever! I'm so used to walking into the hotel room for the pre-ceremony captures and witnessing chaos....not always but most of the time. This wedding was just the opposite!
The bride, Alex, created all the details, from the flowers to the signage, herself. Let me tell you, she did an amazing job! It never ceases to amaze what can be done with a little imagination and a legit pinterest library.
This was my first time shooting at the Henderson Convention Center. I really didn't know what to expect and I must admit i was blown away at how beautiful the ceremony site was!
Here are a few of the sneak peeks that I sent the newlyweds. I couldn't wait to share!
There was wind....there was so much wind, but that didn't stop us! Even when mother nature doesn't cooperate we try our hardest to make it work. This worked! Our location was about an hour outside of Vegas....it was so worth the drive! We pulled up and noticed a field of flowers were in bloom below the stunning red stones. It was the perfect backdrop for such a perfect couple. Headpiece by Young Wild and Free. Enjoy!
I first met Ms. Valentina when she was in her Mommy's belly for the start of our grow-with-me sessions. She was a perfect angel for her newborns, absolutely adorable at her 3 months and just scrumptious for her 6 month photos! Thank you to Young Wild and Free Creative for making the custom headpieces for the session...it was the icing on the cake! Enjoy!
Little Ollie certainly knows how to turn it on for the camera! We only shot for like 10 min total and got the most amazing photos for our spring mini promo! Thanks to our sister and brother-in-law for allowing Oliver to model for us. Headpiece by the very talented Sarah Ellis...love, love, LOVE! (baby boujee) Enjoy!
Boy oh BOY did we fit a lot into this dreamy maternity session! Mommy, Gina, knew exactly what she wanted and we were happy to deliver! Baby Beau should be here soon and we can't wait to meet him! Enjoy!
Here are a few snapshots from Jessica and Rick's wedding this past weekend. We laughed and danced and cried and made new friends....it really was the perfect day! Cheers to the lovely bride and groom for being so incredible and throwing the perfect wedding! Enjoy!
Little Ms. Londyn was just full of love and smiles they day we shot her 1st birthday and smash cake photos! I love that Mom and Dad also joined in on the fun too. Happy Birthday gorgeous one! xo
We don't like to do typical, especially with a beauty like Chiara! We had this grand idea of going to the Seven Magic Mountains art installation in Jean, NV to take Ms. Chiara's senior portraits, but when we got there, mother nature did not want to play and quickly blew us out of town! We managed to snap a few shots before rushing out and heading to the our backup location before sunset. Enjoy!
This is one of those "got it" couples. You know those made for each other, probably flirting after 50 years of marriage, connected at the cellular level types. I never had the chance to meet them before their wedding day, but the second I saw them I knew I was in for the real thing. I've done a bunch of elopements now and they are my absolute favorite. Not because they're easy to shoot or shorter in time, but because I feel so privileged to be one of the few people to witness this life altering moment. I really feel part of it. I always keep a special connection with my eloped couples and Jacy and Nick are no exception. Enjoy!
We will be doing a bit of back-blogging in attempt to catch up with all the time we slacked! So today we meet Bob and Sofia from one of our 2016 weddings! When we first met Sofia and Bob we knew it was a perfect match! They both have an intense love for music, the arts, and of course...each other. We shot their engagement photos downtown at 11th street records and then their wedding at the Downtown Grand and 5th Street School. The ceremony and reception were supposed to take place in the courtyard of the school, but mother nature interrupted their plans! Everyone rallied at the last second and moved the celebration inside. It may not be what they planned but it was more perfect than they ever imagined. Enjoy these highlights from Sofia and Bob's downtown wedding. Cheers!
To kick this bad boy off we are going to feature one of our favs from the Holiday Sessions! This is the Sciara family from Las Vegas. I grew up with Jen, the gorgeous mother, and I have had the pleasure of photographing them for the past two years. To be honest, it's hard to take a bad photo of this uber fashionable family! I mean, how cute are those kiddos!!! Enjoy!
