Family Holiday Photography 2017

It is that time of year again….Family Holiday Photos!!! I met Val back in 2008 for head shots. Since then I have photographed many milestones in Val’s life. Documenting when she had cancer, getting married to Charles, many family photo sessions with her son Jordan and step-daughter Charlie. I feel so privilege to photographed this beautiful family.
Love the expression on Charlies face in the Naughty/Nice image.

Val absolutely adored the muted image of her and Charles. It was a favorite!Always like to get couple images besides family and individual images. 

Laguna Beach Family Portraits in Emerald Bay

I love meeting up every year with families that I have photographed many times. Especially with generations with the Grandparents. The Grandparents live in Laguna Beach at the beautiful Emerald Bay and when their son, daughter-in-law and grand-daughter come to visit from Reno every summer, we meet for their annual photo session. 002 Just happened to get lucky to have a sailboat in the background.

That is what I like about the beaches in southern California we have so much vegetation with flowers and cactus plants growing. You can get many different backgrounds besides the sand and ocean. 011At Emerald Bay, they had a building that I popped Lauren in front of as I liked the color and lines.
