A WORK/LIFE BALANCE RELATIONSHIP

Do you ever feel like you have no days off? I mean honestly that's me every dang day. As a business owner and a freelancer, I work for myself, so I make my own hours, but honestly a lot of the time it feels like I'm ALWAYS working! Kristen and Seth 100% understand the struggle of work/life balance. We took the day to focus on them and what their day to day looks like. While they both are constantly traveling, working, emailing, etc - they often get to do it together, which is awesome! That's exactly what you want in a relationship. They do definitely spend a lot of time apart as well, but they make it work and do their best to maintain a work/life balance. We spent most of the day wandering around DTLA, specifically the arts district, but we also made it back to West Hollywood for some good shots! Enjoy!

A DANA POINT FAMILY SESSION

I got to photograph one of my favorite families, the Holmes! It takes a lot to get this many people together and all in sync, but they did it and nailed their outfits! The thing they learned is to pick a color scheme, which allows everyone to wear the same color, but also mix and match patterns and shades. Enjoy some of our favorites!

The Chapins: Laguna Niguel Family Portraits

A SWEET FAMILY SESSION IN THE PARK

Every family session is fun, but this family session takes the cake for the most fun! The Chapin family is so so sweet and such a hilarious bunch! Stephanie and I met at an event I was photographing for her church. She mentioned wanting to do a family session, so we made sure to exchange contact info and I was so excited when I heard from her a couple days later. She was worried her family would complain about photos since their last family photo was years ago, but they were so easy going and helpful! Whenever I was photographing the kids, the moms were all behind me making sure the kids were looking at me, smiling/laughing - I really wish we had a photo of that! One unexpected thing was Stephanie's son in law, Steve is my neighbor's son! I had no idea, so it was really great to make another connection!
