One of the many things I love about living in southern California is that my outdoor “office” is open year round! I just wrapped up this season’s holiday portraits and it was a season for the books. I feel so lucky to have such awesome clients year after year who trust me to capture their families in portraits to share with their families and friends. This family was so. much. fun. And on top of everything they completely trusted my artistic capabilities and let me just create. This means so much to me! In my opinion, when you give a photographer that you trust carte blanche, you will be rewarded in the end because they are free to do what they do best! It does work both ways, however. When I photograph families with small children, I let kids be kids! I don’t try and force them into poses or make them do things they aren’t comfortable with. I’ve found that when I relate to them and be just as silly as they are, I can get the most natural expressions and best portraits possible!
Thank you to my wonderful family clients this year and Happy Holidays! Looking forward to seeing you next year! xx
