Andrea is one of the sweetest, most genuine people I know. She’s a wedding planner and the hostess of a networking group for creative professionals that I’m a member of. She came to the studio for a few updated photos she could use on her website and on social media. She left feeling, in her words, “so beautiful and special.” Together we created stunning portraits that show every side of her personality, sweet and fun, casual and relaxed, and glamorous and sophisticated!
I’m doing my best to start sharing more photos of my own family. Last week I shared my (now 14 month old) little boy’s 4 month portraits, and today I’m sharing his six month portraits!
It’s officially summer! So I thought it was time to share these amazing Santa Monica family beach portraits! I have to confess that we shot them back in February on an unusually warm and sunny day, well not that unusual for Los Angeles, but we were expecting to shoot a wintery beach session with hot cocoa and blankets, but instead it was 80 degrees out so we switched to a more summery look complete with the Smiley family’s special homemade lemonade! (Which they gifted me with a bottle of, by the way, soooo delcious!) We shot their session at one of their favorite places to spend family time, the Annenberg Community Beach House in Santa Monica. It was such an amazing location, and the kids were so much fun to be around, that their session lasted at least an hour longer than my family sessions usually do. Which was perfect, because I got to shoot them in the gorgeous Santa Monica sunset!
Thank you for such an amazing session, Smiley family!!!
And special thanks to Amy for catching some of my favorite shots from this session!
