To me, one of the most rewarding and special things about being a wedding and portrait photographer is having the opportunity to watch and document as families grow. To later be invited back into my bride and groom’s lives to photograph their newborns, family portraits and events is a special honor. I photographed Alejandra and Steve’s beautiful Santa Barbara wedding celebration last year, and last Sunday I had the opportunity to photograph their son Diego’s baptism! Diego was baptized at Santa Monica Catholic Community and afterward Diego’s family and friends celebrated with him in the lovely Will Rodgers State Historic Park in Los Angeles. He is such a handsome, calm, and curious little man! I loved all of his cute expressions we were able to capture in the park. Posted below are a few of my favorites from the day, see the cuteness for yourself! And to this beautiful family, thank you so much for the honor of being your family photographer!
