Genevieve Elaine Photography » Lifestyle & Portrait Photographer for Los Angeles

  • The girl behind the lens

    Hi I'm Genevieve Anders. I live in Long Beach, California with my husband, our baby girl Evangeline, & our two dogs. I am a lifestyle photographer specializing in families, babies, couples, portraits, senior portraits, and pets.

    I have been a professional model for over ten years. I have worked with some amazing photographers in my career. My favorites have to be Bruce Weber and Kate Powers. I always thought it would be fun to be on that side of the camera and now I am getting my chance.

    Favorite things: animals, Harry Potter, pho, beach, dresses, reading, and photographing you!

I never want to forget the way she whined every single morning before swim class. Pulling at my dress and having “roll abouts.” I never want to forget the way she passed out on her own before swim class and we ended up missing class that day. Sleep is more important than swimming.

I never want to forget the way she hands us books to read to her with that shoulder shrug. I never want to forget her pebbles hair. I never want to forget her mean girl Russian face that stops both of us in our tracks in fear. (hahaha)

I never want to forget (ok, maybe I do) her molars coming in and making her a nursing all night, tantrum throwing, drooling, feverish, wild child.

This is the week of passionate kisses and cuddles. She loves to wrap her arms around my neck and passionately kiss me. She loves to say “hiiii baby!”

She has been sleeping on her twin mattress this week. When she wakes up and cries, I go into her room and lay on her bed. She shockingly doesn’t try and nurse, she just wants me to hold her. It’s seriously the sweetest thing I’ve ever experienced in my life. The first night on her mattress she slept till 4am but the last few nights she wakes often and we end up bringing her to our bed. Knowing that she’s crying because of needing cuddles, I will gladly have her in our bed just because of the love. I’ll never get this time back with her again and I want to soak it all in now while she still wants to cuddle with mama!

She has mastered climbing down from our bed or stairs. It’s so cute how she turns her booty around and hangs onto the duvet while she hops down. She is so close to walking. Any day now!
