Laughter! | Blog Carousel | Los Angeles Child & Family Photographer

Los Angeles Family Photographer


I love Blog Carousel time! It’s fun choosing what I want to post for our monthly theme and more fun to follow along to see what everyone else has shared. With such a talented group of international portrait photographers there are always great images to discover!

I’m showing off one of my favorite families who so thoroughly illustrates the “Laughter” theme. It’s almost harder to catch them not laughing – the love and humor they share makes me so happy. This month they welcomed a new family member, more reason for joy! (Little man there is now a big brother to a gorgeous little sister, I’ll share her in another blog post soon!)

Next on our carousel ride is the talented Dawn Sela, a fabulous New York child photographer!


P.S., I’d be so appreciative if you “liked” Rosestone Studios on Facebook! Thank you!

Framed | Blog Carousel | Ventura Children's Photographer

It’s that time again – when I join my international professional  photographer friends in sharing our monthly Blog Carousel theme! This month we’re doing “Framed.” As before, we each decide how to creatively approach the idea, no rules, just fun.

I’m back with a black and white image I’ve been saving for this theme. These days I seem to do more color for client portraits and just love when I have the opportunity to play with the classic beauty of black and white. Photographers often use foreground elements to sort of frame our subjects and give them emphasis. For this image I enjoyed using the background as a change of pace.

Next on the Carousel is a truly FUN take on our theme by talented Calgary newborn, child and family photographer Brandy Anderson of Fresh Sugar Photography! Be sure to visit her blog and then follow along through the rest of the great “framed” entries!

One more “framed” portrait – because it makes me smile!

Monochrome | Blog Carousel | Los Angeles Photographer

It’s Blog Carousel time again! This month’s theme is “Monochrome.” Our international group of professional portrait photographers will again be sharing images illustrating the theme in whatever unique way appeals to each of us. Otherwise no rules, just creative fun!

This month I’ve chosen a slightly more literal take with a black and white image. A modern twist on classic Hollywood glamour with a little wink and nod to Film Noir.

Next up on our carousel ride through Monochrome is the fabulous Indianapolis Fine Art Portrait Photographer Leah Profancik. She’ll have a link to the next photographer on the carousel, be sure to follow all the links to see the entire “Monochrome” collection!

Reflections | Blog Carousel | Ventura Professional Photographer

Sunset ballet by the Ventura Pier

Today’s post is another creative collaboration with professional photographers in the U.S. and Canada. Some of the same incredible photographers from the Blog Carnival will be sharing images on their blogs and we’ll be introducing talented new friends to our fun. Our theme is “Reflection” – we can illustrate it in a literal way or choose to go for metaphor, the individual photographer decides!

I thought to share a subtle mix of the literal and metaphor with a sunset ballet in “my backyard”, on the beach by the Ventura Pier.

Next up is North Carolina portrait photographer  Pam Nafziger of Casual Moments Lifestyle Photography with a cool image that had my daughter and I saying “Wow!” aloud when we saw it!

If you’re hopping aboard the carousel with us early this morning please be patient, not everyone is awake and posting yet, check back later to see all the great images! Hope you enjoy!
