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!

The reason I titled this blog post Disney’s Xochitl, is because girl is truly a Disney princess. She’s got the name, the beauty, the hair, and allll the animals! Her sidekicks are alpacas! Xochitl is no Sleeping Beauty though. She would be a Disney bad ass for sure. Just wrangling her alpacas for photos was bad ass enough for me. Xochitl isn’t the only bad ass in these photos. My husband and I have a deep love for one of her dogs. Ok, we have a deep love for pretty much all dogs, but this dog is special. Like really special. You can see her soul in those eyes. Artemis is an anatolian shepherd. Lounges in the house during the day, and is dog guard to all the animals at night. Keeping coyotes away from the alpacas, sheep, chickens, and avocados! This gorgeous setting all takes place on her parent’s avocado farm in Temecula. Xochitl raises her alpacas. The two together in the photos are her latest babies. Most of them have amazing greek names. There is even sheep! Trixie & Jane. (They came with their names) When I blog Evangeline’s May photos, you will see her with the sheep. So fun Evie got to come see all the animals. There are even photos with Xochitl’s favorite chicken Penny. This was such a fun shoot. I want Xochitl to get more animals so I can come do it again haha. That will most likely not happen since she’s headed off to college soon, but one can dream!
