Our Family Photos

Remember that one time I tried to take my own family photos? Yeah, it didn't work out so well for us, and I tried to go back and re do it again and still it wasn't good. It was time for me to make the investment, find a photographer I loved and get my own family in front of the camera with me included this time. I ask my clients to make an investment and for a photographer it's no different. Sometimes we need to make the investment. So for weeks and weeks I hunted down the perfect outfits to compliment the color palette I'd chosen and the location.

I had so much fun picking out outfits and styling them all in my mind! I had lots and lots of ideas swirling around in there but in the end I decided on a blue and yellow theme. Orion and I both wanted to do something urban, downtown ish. We've been to downtown Glendale quite a bit. It's one of the first places we discovered when we first moved here, I've been wanting to shoot down there for quite some time so we decided to do our own photos there.

Two weeks ago we met up with Carrie Fay who was a delight to work with, made us feel comfortable and made us laugh. Love her style, and how personable she is. Ava was a trooper, and had lots of smiles and cuteness. I'm so very excited about these photos, to finally have some of our family all of us is so wonderful. Orion and I are going to make a big photo collage to put in our home out of these photos.

Here's a peak;
