I love it when a client wants their session done at their home. It's so personal, and so comfortable for their kids. That was the case for this beautiful family.
I'd actually "met" Samuel and Antonia years ago, when I was just a kid. They sing mariachi music and they visited my church a few times when I was a kid to sing. Then they had two beautiful little girls and their focused changed, so I hadn't seen them in years, up until this summer when I had a booth at the LA Apostolic Convention and Antonia came up to my booth and got my information.
Needless to say I was thrilled when she called me a few weeks ago, asking me to photograph their gorgeous family. I had never met little 9 year-old Samantha and 5 year-old Leslie so it was so nice to meet them, and to see Samuel and Antonia again. Samantha and Leslie are such gorgeous little girls, so full of life and happy and joyful. I had such a good time with them as they showed me their room and their pets and their playhouse and their backyard - everything! I love it when my little clients get comfortable enough to talk to me and show me their most precious things :-) And it was so good to see Samuel and Antonia again. They've been married for 24 years now and they still photograph like a newly engaged couple! :-)
"A" Family - it was SO nice to see you guys again and meet your little girls. You are such a beautiful family and I had such a fun afternoon with you :-) Blessings! Brenda
