I'm Eileen, so nice to meet you! I am a Los Angeles based photographer, passionate about people and a huge fan of love. I truly believe photography is God's gift to me; through it I am able to share life with some of the most amazing people. What a privilege and joy it has been!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Blessings!

I use way too many exclamation marks, but I'm really just that excited!!!! I want to know what moves your heart. I say "that's so funny" quite a bit, but it can mean a number of things. I am a lover of donuts and tea. I floss every night before bed! I love the idea of being spontaneous, but rarely do things unplanned. I am the youngest of four girls, but I'm taller than all my sisters. I would love to open a cafe someday. I am fascinated by the bridegroom God and his ravished heart for all of humanity

    You are going to love this story, I promise!

    Natalia left Brazil two and a half years ago to study here in America. I know it was hard for her to be away from family and friends, so it must have been such a treat to have her parents come for her graduation this summer. And since they were going to be in town, Natalia contacted me to book a session for her parents- they will be celebrating their 25th anniversary this year!

    The day after the session was booked, I get another email from Daniela, Natalia’s mom! In the email she explains that the photoshoot is actually for Natalia, not for them- she only needed to pretend it was for them so that she could get in contact with me. Natalia had originally wanted to have a photoshoot with her boyfriend Davi, but since he was still in Brazil, things wouldn’t have worked out. Little did she know that Davi was flying in to surprise her! : )

    For this shoot, Davi wanted to go to a place where Natalia spent a lot of time during her two and a half years in LA. Here we are in third street promenade where Natalia escaped to when she felt stressed with school.

    As the sun was beginning to set, we hurried over to Santa Monica Beach for some great shots. Both Natalia and Davi love the beach, but the beaches here are so different from the ones in Brazil, they explained to me. The ones in Brazil seem a lot more exciting by the way they described it- little stands along the sand selling handmade goods and yummy food. I would love to visit someday!ƂĀ 

    And because Davi and Natalia went to watch Toy Story 3 for their first date, here they are with a lovely kite to remind them of their first time together as a couple : )

    (hehe, a little boy took stole Natalia’s flowers and I thought it was so cute I just had to take a picture!)

    Oh, what a pleasure it was to be a part of this whole surprise! I was so blessed by meeting you guys. Natalia, I hope your transition back to Brazil is going smoothly. Best of luck with everything! : )
