This gorgeous mama has been such a special part of my life since before I discovered my love of photography. We went to UCSB together and had lots of fun in our youth. My junior year I studied abroad and took a photography class. After graduation I decided to attend photography school at Brooks Institute of photography. This special friend let me use her as a model for my assignments in photography school. Fast forward to motherhood, I have had the privilege to capture the special times in their life as a family unit. This beach session was a lot of fun on this gorgeous Southern California day and it warms my heart to see the love and joy among them!
I was skeptical to go downtown LA to a park I had never seen for this family session. To my great surprise, it was absolutely breathtaking and such fun to shoot in a new place! If you have not visited Vista Hermosa Park, it is worth going to! It was a charming and quaint park among the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles. There was greenery, walking paths, views of the cityscape and even a playground. Here are some samples from this session.
I loved shooting this gorgeous family in their beautiful home. It was icing on the cake to see how well coordinated they were with the environments in their house! The twins really looked up to their big sis and they were really sweet together. Here are some favorite photos from this picture perfect LA family!
