A dad and his boys

I had the pleasure of creating portraits of this family last Christmas and now that older brother came to town, we got together again to document their time together. Conejo Creek Park North in Thousand Oaks is such a lovely place to shoot too -- my first time; I just loved all the options and the beautiful greenery. These guys were great sports, clowning around together. And Dad was truly pleased to have some great images of his three boys altogether. Here are a few favorites from our session.

Fun Family session at Lavender Inn, Ojai / Ventura family photographer

I have a special place in my heart for Lavender Inn in Ojai, so I was so pleased when the owner agreed to let me do a few portrait sessions in the beautiful gardens. This family has so much fun together and so much energy -- love being around them! The youngest fell asleep in the car on the drive up to Ojai from Ventura, so we didn't get much of him, but everyone else enjoyed the day... especially the bolting away from the group part -- so funny! ;-)

Grandma and her girls

I had the pleasure of shooting this lovely extended family a few weeks ago up in beautiful Ojai at Libby Park. Grandma and her five beautiful granddaughters -- what could be better? We had a gorgeous day and a lot of fun exploring and playing on the larger-than-life play structure at Libby. What impressed me the most is the love and playfulness between these 5 girls -- clearly, cousin time is special in this family and I loved capturing that for them
