When Jennifer reached out to me for a Pasadena family photographer to photograph their family portraits during the holiday, she had mentioned that all of her family members were from all over the country and the holidays were the one time every year that everyone comes together. It was amazing to photograph three generations in one park, and see how their family tree blossomed into.
Fun fact: the three kiddos in the bottom photo were born just a month apart!
It blows my mind when I realize just how fast time flies. Believe it or not, Jamie and Randy were one of my very first wedding clients back when I first started Paper Ban Photography. They originally had a wedding in Hawaii and I had the honor of photographing their second wedding in Los Angeles for those who couldn’t make it to the islands. Then, after photographing the maternity session for their first child, the newborn portraits for their daughter Reese, and then her first birthday party on Halloween, we met up once again for their second maternity portraits.
Seeing how big Reese has gotten since the last time I saw her was also a ‘pinch me’ moment on how precious time is! Time seriously goes by SO fast!
Four years ago, I photographed little Austin for his first birthday. He was so tiny! And now, seeing him for a portrait session just before the holidays, he’s all grown up, and has two other siblings! It was fun seeing the family once again for a portrait session, and I look forward to seeing them in the future.
Little Wyatt was turning one, and to celebrate the momentous occasion, he and his family decided to partake in a Disneyland family portrait session at the happiest place on Earth! So, we roamed the land, going through several areas, and photographing away the smiles on their faces. One of my favorites has to be the ones with Cinderella’s pink castle in the ground. SO magical! A close second has to be the photo with the ducks!
Three years ago, I had the honor of photographing Carla and Andrew’s rustic wedding. Now, they’re hitting a new milestone in their life as they add a new addition to family. To document such a momentous occasion, they’ve kindly asked me to photograph their maternity session. How could I not?! So we hit up the beach one recent weekend and swooned over the light that just made them glow in the setting!
End of the year family portraits are always fun to photograph, as it documents a small milestone through the progression of life. I had the pleasure of photographing the K family recently in their beautiful home on a Los Angeles hillside. With two kids running around and showing me their world, it was easy to capture the essence of their childhood. They ran around, collecting leaves, showed me their stuffed animals collection, played with their bikes and their scooters. And when the kids started reading with their parents – it’s so cute!
