Mari, Jim, and Cedar: Family/Maternity

I’m so happy to have been able to meet up with Mari, Jim and Cedar before I take a small break to have our baby. I am also very excited, because this was the first session in a set of three that we will be doing. Since Mari is expecting baby no. 2 in October, she has selected my “Three in One” package where we’ll do a family/maternity session, a newborn/hospital session, and a family session when the newest addition is about 3 months old.

For this session we met out early in the morning in Santa Monica. It’s so peaceful around there when there’s not swarms of people out and about! Cedar was actually more then just a great subject, she was also a very helpuful photo assistant. She picked out places for us to take photos and even got her parents to smile for a few of just the two of them. I had a great time playing with Cedar and we even whipped up a batch of tasty-make-believe strawberry pancakes!

Mari, Jim, and Cedar: Congrats on baby no.2 and I look forward to hearing how the transition goes (we’ll be right along side you!). I’m also excited to meet the little one soon and see Cedar in her big sister role!

Meet Jim, Cedar, and Mari!



I love this sculpture! How fitting that it’s called “Gestation” by Baile Oakes. I was so enthralled I had a to look into it further and found this info on the piece.


There’s something super calming about a 2.5 year old’s quiet moments.
