The chemistry between the Babakhanian family is truly one of a kind! The photos began with a few poses, but as soon as we warmed up, the session became more about capturing candid genuine moments. The main drive of my inspiration became to capture their strong family bond, which has created individuals with such bold personalities, and that is exactly what I wanted to capture with my lens!
The photoshoot location was at the University of California Los Angeles, since it has become the family’s alma mater. Megmik and Meghedi both recently graduated so we decided to include a Graduation photo session, too!
We wish nothing but continual success, love, and happiness for all of you. May the paths you choose to take always keep all of you as close as you’ve been!
Sarineh, Oshin, and their beautiful babies came to my studio for an intimate photo session.
Since the kids were tired at the end of our first photo session, I decided to invite them to my studio for another mini session where the kids would be fresh and happy!
Here are the results:
Parents with two kids have no time to think about themselves; therefore, taking couples pictures is never considered. I offered to leave the kids with their toys for a moment and just remember good old days!! ❤
The love a family shares is truly unbreakable, and it was so strong during this photo session. We were so happy to take part in pausing time for them, and capturing memories that will remind them of these days for a lifetime.

We had a great experience capturing priceless moment of this lovely family.
Sarineh, the mommy, a super kind and humble person made the photo session comfortable for me and the kids.
Oshin, the daddy, was a great help by controlling the kids and giving creative idea’s to me ( Oh, and also a good poser!).
Micheal, the two year old little guy has just the most beautiful green eyes!
Arya, the 20-day-old baby girl is definitely the family’s precious gift this year! A calm and sweet angel whom I enjoyed capturing the most ❤
We hope to see you both grow up and capture more cherished moments for the family!
After our photoshoot at the trainstation, Arka came back to my home studio for a few more portrait shots!
Enjoy the handsomeness!!!
The very first moment I met this little man, he stole my heart! The amount of cuteness and excitement he gave me was a boost of energy right at the beginning of the photoshoot. His mom, Shakeh, was a little afraid if I would be able to capture good photos, since she was thinking that Arka is a not a good poser for a photographer. Oh, was she in for a surprise!
So, I started communicating with him like a little man. I started talking and playing with him, saying stories about the trains and so on…
The result of this friendship became priceless! I was not only able to capture Arka’s pure emotions on his face, but I was also able to make a good friend
The cutest moment was when I asked him to pick a flower and smell it. He picked it from the ground nicely, smelled it, and then put it right back in its place gently with a smile. I could not handle the pureness in this kid’s soul. I am glad I was able to capture every detail of it!
Emily and I enjoyed our photo session at the train station to the fullest. She was very excited to see the trains, and she was running all over the place.
When I look at these photos I can feel the pureness of the childhood sparkling in her eyes. That’s what I love about capturing these precious moments especially with children. Spreading their pure emotions without being fake or trying to seem cute!
She is the kind of baby girl that I have only seen in the movies!
I did a custom edit on these set of shots to make the photos look like a 50’s vintage lifestyle.
Emily is just like the movies!
