Meet my cousin Kayla and her family! We’ve been trying to meet up for a while now so I could take their family pictures and we finally found a perfect day when they were traveling through our area in California. We went out to Castaic Lake for a family session by the lake. Their oldest son Mason was a little stinker when it came to getting him to look at the smile but such a cutie at the same time and Owen was just full of smiles the entire session. They make such a lovely family and it was good to see them while they were passing through.
I enjoyed seeing the Adraino’s again to shoot their family Christmas photos. The last time I saw little Owen he was a tiny newborn and now he’s almost walking around! I also took Elizabeth’s maternity photos back in April and you can see the photos from that session here. One of the things I really enjoy about being photographer is being able to see a family grow year after year. Elizabeth and Michael are both teachers and keep busy with being involved in school activities. They wonderful people and I’m so happy for them and their new addition to the family.
I met Julie through a friend sending her my way and shot her daughter Ayla for the first time at a pumpkin patch. You can see the Pumpkin Patch session here. Julie is a beautiful and very sweet woman and I love photographing her family. As usual Ayla looks adorable in her romper but we did have to keep Daddy (Jim) from sneaking orange candy to her in fear of having some orange slobber smiles. 🙂
This year when I started looking into Christmas orientated picture ideas I decided to go a little out of the box for myself and shoot indoors but still use all natural light to light my subjects. Christmas lights are one of my favorite parts about Christmas so when I saw this background ida on Pinterest I decided to give it a go. I love how the images turned out and you’ll be seing a super cute twin newborn session and another family session using this background as well. Thanks for reading!
