Tomoko+Kenji {Maternity}

We originally scheduled Tomoko+Kenji’s maternity photo session for Malibu beach at sunset, but the weather did not cooperate, so we did it at their house. I know it’s hard to beat the beach at sunset, but I have to say it was God because their session turned out more amazing than I imagined because we were able to include their beloved dog and the beautiful scenery around their property. It was a perfect day and I made the most beautiful and kind new friends. :) It was such a joy to photograph the two of them because they were so happy and had big smiles the whole time. I love my job.

Had such a great session with Zack Mendenhall. I like this kid! :) And if you’re into music, check out Zack’s band, The Narwhals, based in Los Angeles.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. ~ Mark Twain
