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!
My amazing friend started a company called Platefit, a unique fitness experience, which is all the rage here in Los Angeles. It is a modern style workout using high intensity interval training done on individual Power Plates. During the holidays she joined my holiday mini session day at UCLA to get family photos taken, and then finished up with a handful of fitness photos for her company. I really love the pictures we took and really admire this strong and motivated mama for starting such an awesome fitness company. She is hard working and has a heart of gold. Here are the pictures we took!
It was a beautiful afternoon when we captured the love and sweet moments of this gorgeous family in this beautiful setting. Holmby Park is a go-to location for me as it is central to many of the families I work with and has such a nice variety of greenery and “looks”. The addition of the skateboards was a great and personal touch. There were many sweet moments with the boys and the family, a mix of candids and portraits. Here are my selects from our most recent mini session!
I love the color choices made by this family for their holiday mini session. It was colorful and so well coordinated and a combo I hadn’t seen before! We did the session at Temescal Gateway Park in Pacific Palisades on my 30 minute holiday mini session day and we captured lots of fun photos of this beautiful bunch. Here are my favorites from this session:
