LAUREL CANYON, CALIFORNIA
About a year ago, I met Veronica and her family for the first time as she had just welcomed a new addition to their family – a newborn baby girl named Joelle. Inside their home in Laurel Canyon, we photographed Joelle’s newborn photos, along with a lifestyle family session that included the rest of their children, Martin and Simona.
Recently, I had the pleasure of photographing them again.
On a Saturday where Southern California was met with its largest storm since two years ago, I braved the heavy rain pour and drove on a fun and windy hill up to their fabulous home. Unexpectedly, the little kids (currently age 5 and 4) recognized me! And not only that, they seemed to have had a massive change of heart because last year, they were so against having their photos taken by me that it was a miracle I even got any photos of them, and yet, there they were, excited to be in front of my camera.
I love photographing family lifestyle sessions, where the family members are photographed in their home, doing normal and daily activities. Like I mentioned in Veronica’s session, in a few years, everyone will look at these photos, notice what the kids are playing with, and reminisce about the memories that were once forgotten. In Veronica’s words: priceless!
