I LOVE photographing people doing things they really, actually like to do together. To me, it makes the photos so much more timeless and meaningful than a scenic setting just for the sake of a pretty background. Such was the case with Sarah and Kevin’s maternity photos. One of their favorite things to do is ride their bikes down to the beach and so, duh, that’s what we did… at golden hour, double duh! And, it was perfect!
And, I gotta say this set of photos makes me so happy. They just might be my favorite maternity photos I’ve taken to date maybe because they are everything I love about LA… They are bright, colorful, relaxed, warm, easy going, fun and full of so much that beautiful sun. It may also be because the photos seem to capture Sarah and Kevin so well, and that’s just as beautiful to me as all the sun and light in the world.
Julia and Adam are getting married tomorrow! And if their warm, sunny engagement session at the their Highland Park home is any indication, it’s going to be F-U-N! And, I thought today would be a perfect day to share some of my favorite photos from out shoot including an adorable one at the end of their puppies!
Oh and did I mention we dressed their dogs up as a bride and groom for their wedding invitations? So good!
I’ve been wanting to share this set of photos of the Bryan family for a little while because it was pretty epic as family sessions go. They wanted to do their photos at a scenic, outdoor spot and so we met up at the beautiful Placerita Canyon in Santa Clarita. As with most shoots with an oodle of kids, we started with getting a few good, nice portraits of the kids as well as the whole family then we spent the rest of our time exploring, stopping for the occasional snuggle and chasing after Finley, their curious and spunky middle child.
One of the main reasons I wanted to share the photos here on the blog was that I love how much these photos capture the personalities of the kids and each of their unique connections with mom and dad. That’s what I aim for with every family session I do. I also think you get a real sense of the type of family they are… fun, loving, laid-back and able to embrace the chaos!
