I was going to start this post by apologizing for the excessive number of photos in it….but the truth is that I’m not sorry at all! You see, this bundle of sweetness is my brand new nephew, and I’m sort of obsessed with him He was just 19 days old when I first got to breathe in his sweet baby smell, snuggle him into my arms, and stare at him for hours. While I wish he lived a little (ok, a lot!) closer to us, I’m grateful that I had this time with him while he was still itty bitty! Of course, we managed to squeeze in some photos between all of that snuggling. Since he was still so little and new, we opted to keep things simple and did all of the photos inside. In fact, even though they just moved into a gorgeous new house, we ended up sticking to just two rooms with pretty light. With a baby that cute, who cares about pretty scenery?! I’m sure by his 6-month session we’ll be trekking all over Culver City…
If anyone out there is looking for an LA Newborn Photographer (or LA family photographer, or LA maternity photographer, or LA child photographer etc.) let me know! I’d love another excuse to get back to Cali for another visit.
As much as I adored meeting my nephew, I was equally excited to see my sister in her new role as Mommy <3 She's been around babies and kids all her life, so while I wasn't surprised that she was a natural, it was still so beautiful to watch her love and nurture her very own little one.
And look at those eyes! So handsome!!
The baby’s canine big sis is still getting used to the idea of having a little brother. He’s squeaky, but apparently NOT a chew toy…
I’m already counting down the days until I can squeeze him again over the holidays…

Now that the kids are back in school, the weather is finally starting to cool down, and it’s Pumpkin Latte season at Starbucks, I am reliving one of the best summers ever by going through my vacation photos! As usual, we spent two glorious weeks in Cape Cod. Our extended family has grown so much that this year, we opted to get individual cottages around a beautiful lake instead of one large house. It was simply perfect! So perfect, in fact, that we’ve already reserved next year’s trip in the exact same spot! My husband and I grew up vacationing on the Cape, and it’s awesome to see our own kids enjoying things that were such a big part of our childhoods – tidepooling, mini-golf, seafood dinners at picnic tables, watching the sunset at the bay, long walks through salt marshes, and just relaxing at the house with family.
This year, we created some new memories and traditions lakeside! The cottages were adorable, and the kids loved having access to a swim dock, floats, row boats, and kayaks whenever they needed to get some energy out!
We had great weather for most of the trip, but there must have been a pretty crazy storm off shore! The waves at the National Seashore were unlike anything I’ve ever seen! Luckily, things calmed down enough to squeeze in a surf lesson for my husband We explored windmills, lighthouses, and a gorgeous hike at Fort Hill – all fantastic adventures that the kids are still talking about!
We even managed to squeeze in a quick family photo shoot with Grammy and Grampy!
But mostly, we just played at the beach! Sunset at First Encounter beach in Eastham is absolutely spectacular, and we tried to get there as often as we could to say goodnight to the sun.
Only 10 more months until next year’s Cape Adventure!
You can check out last year’s Cape Cod trip HERE if you haven’t seen enough pics of the beach!

This session was extra special for me, because that’s my gorgeous little sister and her husband, preparing to welcome my newest nephew into the world We had a lovely evening walking around their neighborhood in Culver City, CA, trying to incorporate as many of their favorite spots as possible. We strolled downtown, played in the fountain, passed by Culver Studios, visited city hall, and even stopped by their local market for a few shots.
(Check out another of my favorite shots HERE)
Culver City was an awesome way to capture significant landmarks near their home, but the beach also holds a special place in their hearts. So once we had thoroughly trekked through Culver, we headed to the ocean for sunset. The clouds were ominous at first, but the sun peeked out for just enough time for us to get some beautiful beachy shots. In fact, I think the clouds only made these photos more beautiful!
I’m going to be back in Culver City for the newborn session on September 4 and 5, so CONTACT ME if you’re interested in reserving a TRAVEL SESSION while I’m on the West Coast! There’s just one spot available!
My son was actually the one who first asked to stop by the side of the road and pick some daisies. But my daughter was the only child willing to have her photo taken

This little lady has a mind of her own. She knows exactly what she wants and how she wants it! She is strong, determined, persistent – and I’m sure she is destined for great things I have the privilege of photographing her every few months, so it’s been a blast watching her grow! She seems to get faster with every session!

It was so much fun to catch up with this energetic family again this Spring for a mini-session! The girls have grown so much since their LAST SESSION, and we had a blast playing in the flowers and around the beautiful gardens. We were only together for 30 minutes, but there were so many laughs that we captured tons of smiles!

This maternity mini was full of laughter, love, and lots of flowers! As much as I enjoy photographing kids and babies, it’s sometimes very relaxing and..well…FUN to work with expectant mamas – especially when they trust me enough to go with the flow and try all of my crazy ideas

I fell in love with this gorgeous location as soon as I spotted it! The flowers, the light, that cute tree branch at just the perfect height to sit in…Just add a glowing mom and her babies, and you have all the makings of a beautiful mini-session! The trees will be blooming for a few more days, so contact me ASAP if you’d like a session with your own family.

It all started when I ran out of wall space in my home. As a photographer, I understand the importance of printing my own family’s photos, and displaying them around the house. But I take a lot of pictures. I mean, a LOT. And I love so many that it’s virtually impossible to choose which ones to display and which to leave on a hard drive somewhere. Each photo captures an emotion, a nuance, a look, a moment in time that I’ll never get back – and I wanted to be able to look at and enjoy each and every one, without having to pick and choose. So, I started creating albums.
I have albums everywhere. I have albums filled with photos of my everyday life, albums with styled session images, and albums of simple snapshots. There are albums in my kid’s rooms, and albums stacked at arm’s reach in the family room. And WE LOOK AT THEM. All the time. My kids often choose to leaf though old albums in lieu of bedtime stories at night, and we laugh and talk about the memories they hold. It makes me so happy to see my photos being enjoyed and appreciated on a daily basis.
That got me thinking – if I appreciate albums that much, then my clients would probably love them too. While a canvas on the wall can display a favorite image from a photo session, what happens to all of those other “in between” shots that capture the little things that define a family? Mom snuggling her babies…a spontaneous hug…Dad giving his son a piggyback ride. All of these images tell a story, and they belong TOGETHER.
And that’s how I made the decision to include an heirloom quality 10×10 photo album with each and every full session that I do. The feedback I’ve received has been overwhelmingly positive. In the past, people have let their images sit on a USB in a drawer somewhere, with the intention of eventually printing them…someday. Now, I do all of the work, and families can enjoy the images easily and often. And that makes me very, very happy.
I’ll be blogging album images more often in the future. For now, here is a newborn album that I recently delivered. It was so beautiful that I was almost sad to see it go!

When we first started planning this beautiful baby girl’s spring mini session, we never imagined that it would still be so cold at the end of April! She was a trooper, though. You’d never know that it was windy and freezing as we enjoyed the gorgeous spring landscape.
And that flower crown! Isn’t it spectacular?! Mom bought it from THE WOOLY POSSUM on Etsy (check her out on FACEBOOK, too!).
I love being able to follow little ones as they grow through the first year. Just look how much she’s grown since her NEWBORN SESSION! These mini’s are a perfect way to capture all of the major milestones – sitting, crawling, standing, and – eventually – walking!
If you’d like to schedule your own Spring Mini Session, please contact Sarah Jordan Photography. They’re only offered for a limited time, so grab one before they are all gone!

It’s just not Spring until this magical field of crocus and daffodils blooms! The colors, the warmer temps, the sweet evening light – it’s all pretty spectacular.
Then, we were able to grab a few shots of the rest of the family (with some help from my amazingly patient friend Casey). I LOOOOOOVE that first one of my hubby and his little girl – I think it’s going to have to end up in a frame somewhere!

Most maternity sessions are mini-sessions, typically reserved as an add-on to a newborn session. We spend about 20-30 minutes capturing a few images of the baby bump and parents-to-be, and enjoy getting to know each other before the baby arrives.
When these parents-to-be told me that they were expecting a baby girl in May, however, I knew we needed to make it a full session. They have been waiting for this moment for a very long time, and are now savoring every second of pregnancy! They also happen to be two of the sweetest, kindest, most generous, loving people I know, and I couldn’t be happier to do this for them!
The evening of our session was perfection. It was one of the first warm Spring days of the season, the sun was shining, and Mom was glowing. First, we headed to a “natural” setting in a beautiful wooded area. I LOVED that flowing dress – doesn’t it make her look like a goddess?!
Then we headed to downtown Nyack, NY at sunset. Although the spring flowers weren’t yet blooming in the ground, we found these bright yellow blossoms in a pot by one of the shops, and I love the pop of color it added to our images!
Good luck to you both! I can’t wait to meet your new little one next month!

My sister is having a baby! I’ll have a new nephew next August, and I am over the moon excited about it. She may live on the other side of the country, but I hope to see that baby boy as often as possible – so you may notice more travel sessions available in LA over the next few years 😉
This past weekend, we threw the parents-to-be a “You are my Sunshine” baby shower back east, and it was so much fun!
My daughter was very intrigued by the celebration and the idea of a new cousin. She even appointed herself as the official gift-giver! It will be so interesting to see how they interact when the baby is finally born.
It may have been freezing outside, but we spent about 30 seconds grabbing a couple of maternity pics at the end of the day. Aren’t they so sweet?! I still can’t get used to seeing my little sister with a baby belly!
