Los Angeles Lifestyle Session : The Cruz Family

We “met” over four years ago. I can’t remember when or how really. I just know that it happened online. Carlene and I followed each other’s blog and would comment with words of support and encouragement here and there. Then, followed other social media like twitter and once Instagram rolled around, I felt like we had been friends for years. I was crazy excited when she asked me to photograph her family.

Carlene & Sonny are graphic designers. They lead creative lives – in their careers, in their personal lives and as they raise their sweet little Eva. Their house is something straight out of magazine and if I’m being honest, I was tempted to move in. Their family session was easily a favorite of mine because they love the lifestyle look. You know, the ‘we trust you and just want to spend the afternoon being ourselves in the place we’re most comfortable’ look. And I couldn’t be more thrilled with the outcome!
