Holiday Mini Sessions... Round 1 of 2 {Los Angeles Family Portraits}

We had an absolute blast two weeks ago shooting our holiday mini sessions at our favorite park. We got to see some familiar faces and meet a bunch of brand new ones, the day was a lot of fun and we got some really adorable photographs! Since there are SO many photographs to go through we are posting our mini sessions in two parts, this is part one... enjoy!

This first family holds a very special place in my heart. I photographed Everett several months ago when he was being released from Children's Hospital Los Angeles and I was SO excited to get to see him and his family again after all this time. (You may have read about Everett and his journey on our blog six months ago, if you didn't get to read Everett's story I encourage you to check it out but I warn you... have some kleenex handy) I was so delighted to see that Everett was the same smiley baby I remember from the NICU only now he is sooo much chubbier!  It was so great seeing you guys again and we had a blast celebrating Everett's first year with a fun family photography session :)

This next couple was a total delight to photograph, they were such sweet & loving souls. They were expecting their first child just days later so we were quite impressed that the beautiful mamma-to-be was rocking her high heels! Here are a few of our favorite photos from their pregnancy mini session, enjoy!

This next little lady melted our hearts! Chloe was all smiles and all the time... her open mouth smiles were the absolute best and she just kept amazing us with her endless smiles and cheerful attitude. Her parents won the lottery with this angel. Here are a few of our favorite images from Chloe's first holiday portrait session, it was so hard to pick!

If you follow our blog you will no doubt recognize these little red heads! Lucille & Sophie are true S&G veterans... we've photographed them FIVE times in their first year and it never gets old, they always keep us on our toes and their parents keep us laughing the whole time! It's always fun photographing these lovely ladies and this mini session was no different! Here are a few of the girls :)
