Immanuel & Myrna Engagement Session Laguna Beach, CA by Archi Prudencio

A good rule of thumb to remember for any engagement shoot is: the beach is always a good idea. Lucky for us, we live in Southern California; where the coast is never too far away. For Immanuel & Myrna’s engagement session, we drove down to the city of Laguna Beach to hit some waves (in a different way).  

Something that made this shoot absolutely memorable was the energy Immanuel and Myrna gave off. The two were willing to go as close as they could to the shore during high tide to get the perfect shot.

I get so excited when I see couples take initiative and do what they do best--display their love.

I can’t wait to shoot these two again for their wedding in October 2016!




Raskin Family Maternity Portraits by Archi Prudencio

Celebrating family has always been the essence of who we are. So it comes to no surprise how delighted we become when our good friends share news that they’re expecting.

David, Cherry, their beautiful daughter, Skyla, and baby number #2 posed perfectly during the golden hour at O’Melvyn Park in Granada Hills. Having grown up in this neighborhood and creating fond memories in this area as a child, Archi found this location fitting for the new family of 4.

For this shoot, we really wanted to capture the excitement and elation parenthood brings. Lucky for us, the Raskin’s were naturals at highlighting these feelings on camera. The positive energy coming from their intimacy and smiles were equally contagious and admirable.

From one happy parents to another, congratulations! We can’t wait to meet your new baby!
