Of course, I must share one of the most gorgeous maternity sessions ever! One of my favorite couples and best friends, Natalie and Peyman, are expecting their first baby!

Ekkkk! I am so excited for them and can’t wait to meet my little baby noodlette.

These two are just the cutest and most photogenic, even if they think otherwise. (Check out their engagement shoot, too!) I’m telling you, not many people are actually comfortable in front of the camera, myself included. But, once we get to know you, no one will ever think you’re camera shy again! Am I right?!? I mean look at these stunning images!

I am obsessed with a clean soft white look with some blow out windows! There is just something so majestic about a mommy to be with the glow behind her and in neutrals for that gorgeous look of purity.

There is something so beautiful and special about capturing a mommy and her baby bump. The excitement, the anticipation, the love that just keeps growing.

Many women debate whether or not they should have a maternity session. Once they finally give in, they rarely regret it. I say go for it, I know it can be scary with your body changing and feeling like a little alien is growing inside of you, but trust me … you will not be disappointed with a beautiful maternity session like this! It’s such a short and memorable time that you will cherish for a lifetime. Oh, aren’t these guys just adorable?

I loved everything about this session and can’t wait to photograph more … almost as much as I can’t wait to meet my newest baby friend!

Don’t you just love an adorable newborn! All that fresh little squishiness and their tiny little cuteness?!?! Meet Nathan …

This tiny little cute thing is especially special. He’s part of a family that is near and dear to my heart. I’ve enjoyed being a part of their lives and so many of their milestones. It all started with mom and dad’s engagement and wedding and most recently this little guy. I’ve had the honor of photographing three out of the four kids newborn sessions. So as you can imagine I adore this family!

I love watching their family grow! Especially the very special relationship the kids have with each other – both the good and the bad! Haha! Each of these kids has their own very different personality!

Honestly, watching them all grow and develop such amazing bonds … that’s something I cherish as a photographer! I’m very grateful to have the opportunity to be a big part of this family’s cherished moments.

Thanksgiving is Natalie’s Favorite Holiday. What’s Yours?

Don’t you just want to eat and gather with family now?! I love the closeness of Natalie and her family! Plus, who doesn’t love Thanksgiving? What’s your favorite holiday?

fallsesisonboard_natalie

Today, I am sharing a holiday story from Natalie, one of my good friends and soon to be, a repeat portrait client!
004_natalie_peyman_000005410015

Thanksgiving is Natalie’s favorite holiday because she loves gathering around a large table with all her family and friends – sharing laughs, jokes, heart felt moments and, of course, food. We know, it’s all about the food! I mean family is great and all, but there’s only a few times each year you indulge like that guilt free. And, Natalie does enjoy the guilt free indulging. She told me all about her favorite dish – Mac and cheese with crispy potatoes – um, yes sign me up for that carb overload! I love it! Natalie, set a place for me, ‘cause I‘m coming over.

I’ve actually had the opportunity to share in a few of Natalie’s family gatherings and while the food does play a huge role – I mean huge, these people go all-out-crazy! The warm, welcoming feeling from everyone is so touching, it’s overwhelming. Oh, and don’t forget that after all the yummy food is eaten, they all gather around the TV to root for their favorite football team – the Dallas Cowboys!

I completely understand why this is Natalie’s favorite holiday. Sharing these moments with parents, grandparents, in-laws, aunts, uncles, and friends is very special to their family. You can feel all the love as every single family member tries to get you to eat more and more and more. Love you guys!

How funny is Abby in this video?!? I just love our puppies and am so excited to be giving back to The Wylder’s Foundation for our special Nov. 12th pop-up date!

You guys I am so excited to share this special announcement with you. This one is near and dear to my heart!

fallsesison_wylders_4x6

As many of you know, I am slightly obsessed with dogs, particularly my two mini schnauzers. As a matter of fact, Francie and Abby are snuggled up on me as I write this! I’d love to tell you our fur babies’ story!

photo

We adopted Francie three years ago from a boutique pet adoption place in West Hollywood. One year later, Aldo and I started talking about adding a little friend for Francie – she needed someone to play with while we worked.

One beautiful Sunday, we took Francie out for a walk and came upon a brand new pet store that happened to have puppies for adoption. As fate would have it, they happened to have a litter of mixed mini schnauzers! We played for a little while, but made the super hard decision to walk away without a puppy – we wanted a female but all the puppies were male.

The next day, while walking Francie, I stopped into Wylder’s to buy her some treats and fate was at work…again. The other half of the litter was in the store and included a girl! I called Aldo and said, “Guess what? I am coming home with a puppy!” Haha! Reluctantly, he said ok…and that is how we got Abby.

Aldo and I are so grateful for Melissa, the owner of Wylder’s, for bringing Abby into our life. Neither one of us can imagine life without our nugget (Abby) and bean (Francie). I still continue to shop at Wylder’s for everything I need to spoil my fur babies. I’ve built a great relationship with Melissa. Recently, she opened The Wagmore, a luxury pet hotel and spa. Francie and Abby visit often for a little play and pampering!

krista_aldo_holiday2014_0877

I try and give back to Wylder’s as much as possible – I send everyone I know there when they are looking to add furry family members. My mom recently adopted two cocker spaniel puppies from Wylder’s!

So, it is my great pleasure to announce that we have partnered with Melissa for a special one day only pop-up with 50% of the proceeds benefiting the Wylder’s Foundation.

We only have 5 spots available on Nov 12th in Studio City! Head on over to the blog and sign up for our special donation session with Wylder’s.

Bring your pets along for the session and capture those adorable furry faces!

Don’t have a dog? Head on over to Wylder’s and get one! Melissa always has the cutest little guys always available in her store. Just mention Krista Mason Photography sent you!

Here are some of the adorable babies she currently has up for adoption! OMG, Aldo can we get a third puppy? Haha!

Celebrating her 1st birthday and capturing the memories before she grows so fast is one of those things I love to do.

These two are so much fun and their session did not disappoint! You guys remember Aldo and my holiday card a couple years ago with Holi Powder? Well, we used that experience to inspire Kat for her maternity session. I love when that happens! It’s a true passion and joy when we can inspire clients to be creative and try something different. And I love how this session turned out.

Kat and Will took a “patience pill” and decided to wait to find out the sex of their baby…how did they do it?! The multiple color holi powder was a perfect idea for a gender-neutral session. Plus, it’s so stinking fun!

I mean look at those facial expressions. Brings back fun memories of our session and the hot mess we made of each other, just like Kat and Will did. Colors were flying everywhere…like a mini 4th of July. The powder really does make for some beautiful photos in the beginning and the end, and a gender war in the middle. What do you think…boy or girl?

I have truly enjoyed photographing the Iwai family over the years! From capturing the first adorable newborn session with Kaley to the newest addition Rylie and all the milestones and holidays in-between.  I am sure that you have all become very familiar with the adorable faces of the Iwai family as well. They are pretty hard to forget!

newborn session {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title] newborn session {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]
Jen and I met years ago and she has been a huge influence in my photography, branding and fashion! I thought I would never be able to return the favor, until she told me she was pregnant with Kaley. I was so thrilled to be able to give back to her all the creative influence she has given to me. 😉

289_Rylie_Newborn newborn session {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]

I had the pleasure of photographing these adorable sisters since Rylie, baby #2 arrived.  A toddler and a screaming newborn made for an ‘interesting’ session. I had them for a few hours…mom has them ALL day. That’s what wine is for, right?! Getting one to sleep while making the other smile and be gentle with baby is well, a split second!

newborn session {Krista Mason Photography} [post_title]los-angeles-wedding-photographer-00

And baby Rylie sure is different than baby Kaley was. Baby K slept the entire session and then some. In the time that we were there shooting and visiting,  Baby Riley wouldn’t close her eyes. She was like, not gonna do it. Nope. I want in on this party!  But, we still managed to get some adorable shots of the siblings and baby R! And how cute is the Brady Brunch collage of all the Iwai’s. I love this idea!
