Sally-Ann's Family in Laguna Beach

Since I specialize in wedding photography, I usually don't have a chance to work on other types of shoots. I'm so glad, however, that Sally-Ann and I were able to find a date to shoot her cute family in Laguna Beach. When she told me that they were a French-Australian family and were only here in Southern California for three years so they wanted photographs as a souvenir, I was excited to make this shoot memorable and the photos something they can be really happy to look at when they are no longer in the US.

As I looked over these photos, I realized that my parents didn't have the opportunity to have pictures done like these for us when we were little. I thought to myself, how fun it would be for the kids to see this 20 years down the road when they are all grown up. Even though I may not have memories like this, it's every bit as satisfying for me to provide these images to an adorable family like Sally-Ann's.

Father and son.


Connected family.


We found that Luca would smile biggest when he got to run as fast as he could.

Something about the ocean just makes people want to jump.

I love how there are footstep lines that go down to him and extend with his shadow, footsteps behind him, and unchartered territory ahead.

This is my favorite shot with the sunlight falling on their golden hair.


Sally-Ann gives Sophie a big push.


Another one of my favorites.
