Santa Clarita Valley Family Photographer

As a mama of teens myself I know how hard it can be to coordinate everyone’s schedule and get teens to cooperate, but those years before they leave the nest are really the ideal time for a family photoshoot. Most of us moms have plenty of pictures of our families when the kids are babies, but what about as they get older? I can’t tell you how many moms have told me “we haven’t had pictures taken in years!” 5 years? 10 years??? So here’s a call to action mamas, book a shoot for your family before they start heading off to college, you won’t regret it. Enjoy~



Santa Clarita California Baby and Family Photographer | Kamsi

It’s been a busy summer here at Laurie Sachs Photography, I have so much to post! Today I want to share gorgeous two month old Kamsi and his mom and dad. Two months is one of the hardest ages to photograph, they’re not newborns anymore, but they’re not fully interacting with their environments yet either. All in all I’m so happy with the images we got, what a darling little family!










Los Angeles County Portrait Photographer | Valencia High School Varsity Dance Team

Every year for the last 8 years, I’ve had the pleasure of photographing the National Champion Valencia High School Varsity Dance Team, what a gorgeous group of talented dancers! This year was especially fun for me as my baby Julia was on the team, following in the footsteps of 3 of her cousins! So here they are, the 2014-2015 VHS Dance Team! They’re a little older than my typical clients, but I love them all the same :)



























Santa Clarita California Portrait Photographer | Eric

It’s been a weird, exciting, emotional, sad, happy, hopeful, proud, crazy week around the Sachs household. Our oldest son Eric graduated from Valencia high school. Let me tell you something mamas, when people say your kids’ childhood goes in the blink of an eye THEY ARE NOT KIDDING. We are so proud of the young man he has grown into and so excited to see what his future holds, but I want to hold on to the little boy he was, I don’t think I’m ready for this. It feels like the end of an era, when our kids were all children. How are we old enough to be the parents of an adult??? My husband and I were 17 when we started dating, to see our oldest son going through the same milestones we shared is is bit surreal. So here is our Eric, from the first day of kindergarten to graduation day went in the blink of an eye. We love you son and we have been honored to be your parents.

I feel like you were speaking my heart here. Our son graduated this year too. So many emotions. Loved your post!
