Family Portraits in Los Angeles are always magical due to the wide variety of sunny landscapes and textured terrain. For this family session, we had the agonizing decision of whether to shoot at the beach or go green within Griffith’s expansive park. It was a tough call but in the end, we decided to go green. The morning of the shoot, it was a refreshing eighty-five degrees and our backdrop was a soft collage of warm woods. The park was a nice break from the city and made for the perfect outdoor photography studio. Of course, we still brought our studio lights, filters, and bounce boards but due to their wireless and light weight nature, they were easily transported… into nature. ;o)

Our family for this family portrait session was the Tran Family. They were one of our larger family sessions this year, with twenty-one members in total, from all over the states. It had been five years since their last shoot so we wasted no time in getting started.

It’s that time for us again! We’ve scheduled our year of trips and have started heading out for new adventures, in-between our regularly scheduled portraits and events of course. This was the view from our plane today and  I couldn’t help but reminisce  on this quote as I took it all in from  35,000 feet-

The clouds were building up now for the trade wind and he looked ahead and saw a flight of wild ducks etching themselves against the sky over the water, then blurring, then etching again and he knew no man was ever alone on the sea. -Ernest Hemingway

Any ideas on where we might be heading?… The quote is a big clue. 😉

More to come soon!

We just recently had the pleasure of documenting a wedding at the Dos Lagos Country Club with Jenny and Lindsey. My team and I had an amazing time! These are two quirky, gorgeous, ridiculously fun, and so in love gals. We cannot wait to share more. In the meantime, we leave you with a taste, while we edit and build their wedding gallery. Congratulations again Jenny and Lindsey!
