Holden Family’s Beach Mini Session

I love this family. And I love that even though our Baby’s First Year is over I still get to see them!

Samantha is a few months over 1 year old. She has had a rough first year, health-wise, but she is still the precious, curious, 1-year-old that gets to discover the ocean and do her best to walk with waves hitting her and her feet sinking into the sand!

Even though a mini session is only twenty minutes long, we still have plenty of time to capture intimate, candid moments like this one.

Eleanor’s First Day of School

I recently realized that it has been a long time since I captured my own family’s day-to-day life. I’m so busy capturing other families that I’ve neglected my own. So I’ve decided to start a weekly family project this school year. Every week I plan to post a few images that I’ve taken of my own family and share a little bit of our lives.

Eleanor started first grade this week. I remember being so excited when school started every year. Each year brought new clothes, shoes, school supplies and seeing friends after a long summer spent mostly with my four siblings. I felt that old familiar excitement when I took Eleanor shopping to get her ready to start school.

The night before her first day of school, my own excitement for her building as I prepared her lunch box, I asked, “Eleanor, are you so excited that school is starting tomorrow?”

She replied, “It’s not that exciting. I was excited when I started Kindergarten, but I got used to it pretty quick. It’s not that fun. I think I’ll get used to first grade quick too.”

She gets her bad attitude from her father.

Rudell Family – Modern Beach Portraits

I am so very proud of the work our new Associate photographer Jen is creating! We are making her available at a few different locations around the area for candid, modern family portraits, and this particular session is from the beach in Ventura.

The most fun part of this whole evening was watching Dylan discover the waves. This was his very first visit to the beach and he loved it! He would RUN into the waves, get knocked down, dad would pick him up again and he would RUN back into the water.

I think he had fun — don’t you? There was no need to worry about a change of clothes since he probably would have thrown himself right back into the water!
