california…part 4

December 20, 2013

Ok, Winter, I’ll give you until December 26th. That’s when I stop loving you and start wanting my warmth back. Or at least another trip back to California.

The Ryan family rounds out the last of the California sessions. What a special, wonderful family. I bonded with them immediately and loved photographing them. You know you’re in tight when the kids are asking you to come to dinner with them after the session :)

Enjoy…

    d’awwwww, these make my heart melt! The fab thing about your images is that I don’t know any of these people you photograph….but somehow they become familiar through your images.

    That last image brought me to tears. What a beautiful and meaningful photo, and I don’t even know this family. That could easily be me though. Great work!

    Jean….always the master of capturing the love and togetherness of a family….and tying it with a beautiful bow. Your images speak to the heart. Gorgeous….

    Absolutely gorgeous photos. I too loved the last one of the mother looking at her family. Wow. Great work as always.

    Also, may I ask you what lens you used for the family photo with the parents’ heads together?
