• Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.Dorothea Lange

This family photo session was an extra special one for me as much as it was for the family.  The matriarch of the family was diagnosed with terminal cancer and given just a few months to live.  My close friend and relative of this family arranged a speedy photo session with me to capture them together and all those special moments and details.  This session turned out to be amazingly beautiful, full of love, laughter, appreciation, joy and celebration of life.  You never know which road life is going to take you and it is hard to realize the true value of photographs, especially family photos, until you are faced with serious moments such as this family.  This was their first family photo session ever.  I worked hard to make it not only their happiest, but also their best.  Here are just a few of the moments from the day…I had an incredibly hard time choosing from these images.  God Bless this beautiful family.

What a wonderful family photo session! I had so much fun chasing baby C around! He is a super cute toddler!!  He is so sweet, funny, and has his mom and dad’s beautiful big blue eyes!  I have truly loved capturing this couple and their growing family.  I photographed their wedding (HERE) in 2011.   I captured their son as a newborn (HERE) and I felt it fitting we ended up taking family photos back in Pasadena.  I am so happy to have such amazing families as clients.  I am grateful and thankful every day!  Here are a few of my favorites from the day!  Have a great weekend!

I have had so many wonderful baby boys this year!  Usually I am flooded with girls, but this year has been all about the lil boys.  I have had a longterm professional relationship with this lil man’s parents.  I have known his father since he was in grade school (I use to babysit!) and I have captured their Engagement Pictures, Wedding, and Pregnancy Photos.  I love when I can watch clients grow their families.  I think it is one of the best parts of my job.  Here are a few photos from my session with baby C.
