This next set of images from my Pictures of You Project are of the Derian Family photographed last June in the backyard sanctuary of their Tujunga, CA home. As with many families, the pandemic provided an opportunity to slow things down and reflect on their priorities.
Here’s what they shared about where they are at now:
“I know that quarantine was really difficult for so many, but for our family, it was just what we needed! Being together home all day, every day brought out the best in all of us! Both of us had been flirting with the idea of changing careers to allow for more family time and experiences prior to COVID and this gave us a glimpse of what life could look like.
“Since our photo shoot, we have been really committed to making changes and looking for opportunities to pull us out of the grind and give us that slowed down version of life that we were so craving. We converted our basement into a studio for our design/craft business and are loving working together to build our new life.”
