Family Photography Los Angeles

      When I’m planning a family photography session it’s usually in-home or out and about. But sometimes, when I’m lucky and have a family who is up for it, we get to do both! When I met this family for their portrait design appointment we started discussing a session in their backyard. But then I met the green chair…

      Wait… what?

      Well, it turns out that the family has a green chair that was inherited from a relative (its a gorgeous midcentury chair) and has been in the home since their first child was born. It quickly became the “photo spot” where they would snap a quick photo of their child’s milestone ages (newborn, 6 months, birthdays, etc). Now the family has 3 kids and a WHOLE ALBUM of green chair photos. Well, when I saw that I knew we had to do some portraits in “the green chair”.

      They also have a lovely park down the street from them, so we added that to the mix as well! I’ll admit that sometimes I get a bit carried away when planning a session with a family, but you’ll see that we ended up with a great variety of portraits for them. I love that my photographs will make it into the green chair album – it’s a real honor!

But you’ll see… those portraits in the tall grasses were worth picking the hitch-hiker plants out of our socks!

      I like to call these kinds of portraits – with everyone looking at the camera – The Grandma Shot. I think Grandma will be pretty happy with this one. Love the little boy’s arm around mom’s neck. Don’t tell Grandma that he was actually trying to give her bunny ears!

      Here we go… into the tall grass. But worth it, don’t you think?
