Now is family portrait time and I wanted to share this recent session with Shawn and Keith’s gorgeous family!

Two years ago I was fortunate to have photographed the family for our Kids of OC project (this years’ session was also a Kids of OC session) and I am amazed at how much the kids have grown up in such a short period of time.

As a parent it rips my heart out when I see how fast time is flying as I watch my own kids get older so quickly. Photography and video are our only ways to “stop time” and I am grateful that Keith and Shawn recognize that and have me photograph them.

This is one of the best times of the year to do a family session — especially at the beach because the fall/winter light here in California is simply amazing, the beach is relatively empty (compared to the middle of summer!) and the water has been surprisingly warm!
