When I approach a family session, I want to tell a story. I want to preserve real moments in time that will only become more and more of a treasure with each year that goes by. This session embraces everything I love about family portraits. You can see the movement from both the mountain breeze and the passing moments this growing family spent together. It feels less like a photo session and more like a glimpse into their lives. Olivia’s blue gown perfectly complimented the blue mountains in the background. And to top it off, the gown and the mountains contrasted the warm golden sun on this California afternoon. As the sun lowered, we got a lovely orange glow and the perfect end to this day.
