We photographed this family a couple years ago when their firstborn son, Miles, was born. Now Miles chased us around, absolutely loving the camera. It was such a delight seeing how this beautiful family had grown, and meeting the new little star of the show, baby girl Meejo.
We thought it would be fun to use the same exact basket that her brother was photographed in a couple years before….
This time last year we were soaking up some serious southern California sun and having such an adventure as a family! We flew out to photograph this amazing wedding, and then had a great week of vacation with Uncle Jason. Our dear friend and babysitter (a senior we photographed BACK in the day) also came to help with the kids, and we all had such a blast! We rented the most adorable 1940′s bungalow in Santa Monica, and took a stroll down to the beach almost daily. We got to see so many old friends that we haven’t seen in years, and made some new ones as well. We visited museums, beaches, and tried new fantastic restaurants. One of Jason’s dear friends set us up with a dinner that absolutely blew our minds–the best meal we’ve ever had (a couple courses shown below)!
I’m not sure how I skipped blogging these for so long, but going through them a year later I find myself so thankful for the times I pulled out the big camera, and kicking myself for the times we only used the iphone. In 2013, I’ve been working much harder to make sure I use the handy iphone less, and instead pull out the “big dog”. The quality is incomparable, and I know I will be so thankful 5 or 10 years from now. (Repeating this to myself daily.)
Having said that (ahem), this post begins with some shots from the iphone, and then moves on to the real deal. ;)
And these are all from the big ol’ camera…
Can we go back, now?!
