Oceanic Fairytale Maternity in Palos Verdes // ©2020 Sun & Sparrow // Los Angeles Maternity & Newborn Photographers



For our little baby Lee and whoever cares to know: We did not have to work too hard for you. We were blessed that you were ready to join us; (even though I had to give up all the extravagant treats of Paris) you were worth it. Our growth together has been symbiotic and a true joy. I have whispered in the dark my secrets to happiness, sung you songs on our walks with the pups, and smiled as your father has talked about his day through the belly and into your world.

We learned together the stretches, the meditations and affirmations to make your world comfortable and get us both optimally ready for your earth side arrival. We have all partaken from around the world in bringing you so much love and support. Love has travelled as far as Serbia, Maryland, Massachusetts and as near as down the street.

You will always have love because you were brought into existence because of love. You will always be brave because we will be brave when we are bringing you into this world. You will be kind because that is the practice we will put in place. And you will be beautiful because let’s face it, your momma and father are stunning humans.

And if you ever doubt any of these promises, we will hand over these moments caught by our talented friends and neighbors at Sun & Sparrow to show you the kindness in our embrace, the love on our faces, the bravery in our eyes and the beauty caught in these photos.

We will love you always and forever our little baby Lee.



When Emily reached out to us, she was so excited at the prospect of a Beach Maternity in Palos Verdes to capture her story. Her dream was to remember this moment in a fairytale and fin-art form. She wanted lace and long gowns that flowed in the wind. Emily and Matt came to the session with so many smiles and tons of love to share with their little one. Our hearts for our clients is to share fairytales filled with joy, they were the epitome of our dream client!

Christian & Bree // Mermaid inspired engagement in Malibu

©2020 Sun & Sparrow // Malibu wedding and engagement photographers

It all started January 9, 2019, when we matched on a dating app called Coffee Meets Bagel. As two old-fashioned individuals, we never imagined we would meet our future spouse this way, but God had other plans! We met for lunch on a Saturday, and had a great time chatting with each other. We both felt there was something special, and we’ll never forget the first words out of Bree’s mouth: “I’m so glad you look like your picture.” From then on, God continually grew us closer together and blessed our friendship. After 4 months of dating, praying, laughing and learning, we felt God leading us to take the next step of pursuing marriage.

On March 13, 2020, I got down on one knee at our favorite place, Disneyland, and asked the best question I could ever ask my girl: “Will you marry me?” Our engagement was the biggest step in our journey so far and easily the most incredible. God has given us such a deep, Christ-like love for each other, and we long to glorify Him by faithfully choosing to love each other for the rest of our lives. With Jesus being our first love, we consider ourselves beyond blessed for the gift of marrying the second love of our lives. 

The closer we get to saying “I do”, the more surreal it becomes. To say we’re excited to marry our best friend is a flagrant understatement. As the groom, the moment I am looking forward to the most is seeing my beautiful bride, Bree, in her dress for the first time as she walks down the aisle. As the bride, the moment I have daydreamed about the most is watching Christian’s face when he looks at me for the first time in my wedding dress. We both long to hear the words, “I now pronounce you man and wife.” The most wondrous anticipation of all is the joyous privilege of honoring, serving, and loving each other for the rest of our lives.
