This lovely mama contacted me saying that she was looking to take her family photos in a more candid direction. Naturally, I couldn’t be happier that my work caught her attention. Her kiddos are about 1.5 and 6, which are fabulous ages to let the kids run round and find their own fun. Our backdrop for this session was none other than Top of the World Laguna Beach, which makes a pretty great backdrop for photos any time of the year (check out another candid family photo session at Top of the World). The spunky little gal you see in these pics had a strong personality. She had a clear sense of herself and what she wanted, more so that many other toddlers at this age. And she couldn’t stop pointing at everything she could see. Even at 1.5 years of age, I say watch out big brother! Her older brother was pretty easygoing in front of my lens. Sometimes it takes kiddos awhile to warm up, but not this guy - he was instantly at ease. And mom and dad were happy to go in whatever direction we needed.
Mama K - I couldn’t be happier you chose to move in a more candid direction this year. Your family are adorable and I feel lucky I got to spend some time getting to know you all and have fun with you at Top of the World.
