The fall season is finally upon us!! I love this season for many reasons. One of which being I get to photograph sweet families like this one. I had the most amazing time this past weekend photographing Katie + Justin’s Papago Park Family Session. I absolutely love this cute family!! Katie and Justin are recently engaged, so we took a few engagement photos as well. They are planning their wedding next May in Redondo Beach, CA. It’s going to be stunning!!
Although it was pretty warm outside during their session they were so easy and just rolled with the punches. I know how stressful photos can be, especially family photos with kids. I have my own sweet ones, and getting family pictures is always a bit unpredictable. Of course as a parent you want your kids to behave and cooperate, which of course is totally understandable. But let’s be real!! Kids are kids. They can only hold still for so long, they like to run and be free and they sometimes like to be loud!! During my family sessions, I totally accept that and embrace it. I let parents know it’s okay for them to be kids and I will work with their energy and incorporate it into the session. I let them be silly and just have fun, because honestly, that’s what life is about!!
Thank you so much for entrusting me with these photos!! I know how important these memories are with your kids. Before you know it they are going to be grown up, enjoy every moment. I’m also so honored to take these engagement photos for you as well. I hope you look back at these often and are filled with amazing memories from this special time in your lives. I’m so excited for you guys!!
