This is a portrait of John with his 6 month old daughter Madeline, taken earlier this week at the beach by the Montage. It was an overcast morning, but as you can see the light was so soft and beautiful. I loved the gentle little one held by her father, surrounded by the rugged California coastal landscape.
John and his wife Beverly were back in town visiting family from their current home in Ohio. This was an extra special session because I had photographed John and Beverly’s wedding in May of 2009. In four years their lives have changed so much with the addition of their energetic son Christopher and their gorgeous little one Maddie. Not to mention their work keeps them so busy as well. They made the time on their vacation to create this session and it just made my day!
As I was looking at this particular photograph I realized how quickly this phase of a child’s life passes and how much I would have loved to have a portrait of me holding the kids in this type of location. I’m very thankful that my clients trust me to capture the major milestones in their lives creating photographs that will be treasured for a lifetime.
