I’d love Saturday Nov 1st at El Segundo Hidden Park from 4-5. The beach was my first choice but I think it’s taken?

Leah Obegi - September 10, 2014 - 10:07 pm

Would love the es beach on the 16th, although I can’t think of where the hidden park is?!

Montana Beauties {Los Angeles Family Photographer}

There’s just something about Montana girls and Montana scenery. . . the glow of the light, the twinkle in the eyes.  I was so happy to have these beautiful sisters in front of my camera again!

I last photographed them 3 years ago, and this is the sweet littlest sister. . .

If that seems a bit familiar, when I saw those purple flowers near the bench at our session I immediately thought of one of my all time favorite photographs, which happens to be of the very same subject, photographed in 2011!

While this time, 3 years later, there was still plenty of sweetness, there was also a bit more spunk and confidence.  Certainly the mark of an upcoming 2nd grader!

Moving on to middle sister, who I feel an instant connection with, as a middle child myself:-)

And finally, big sister, who I think has changed the most in the last 3 years, particularly if you only consider added inches. . . she measured up right next to me at 5’4″ and is just a hair away from surpassing her mother!

It was such a gorgeous evening and I was so happy to spend it with these lovely  ladies!

Once a Runner {Los Angeles Family Photographer}

… always a runner!  A few years ago (thanks to Facebook!), I reconnected with one of my high school cross country teammates.  It was fun to discover that nearly 20 years later, she is not only still running, she’s a mom to 5 amazing kiddos!  She and her family have settled in South Carolina, and when my family made our annual trek to the beach outside Charleston, they made the trek to the beach and spent some time in front of my camera.

It was so fun to reconnect!  I  especially loved how they all take after their speedy mama, with smiles on their faces as they race across the sand!  :-)

Sisterly Love {Los Angeles Family Photographer}

This is the session that almost didn’t happen!  Several months ago, the mom of these sweet girls scheduled this session for the end of June, which was right after I was returning from a family trip back east.  The problem arose when I returned from my trip as scheduled, but my camera didn’t.  It’s a long, sordid story that boils down to my bag of equipment staying on a connecting airplane in Atlanta when I did not.  The good news is that, according to the airline, they think they found my bag and it is on its way back to me as I type.  It’s been quite the 2 weeks without “my baby,” but thankfully a bright spot in that 2 weeks was having these two sweet “babies” in front of a lens (that was so graciously loaned to me by a friend!).

Super sweet sisters on their own, and even better together!

The love was also spread to “girl’s best friend”. . .

I think you can see why they were a “bright spot” for me!

Familiar Faces {Los Angeles Family Photographer}

I just got back from a big family trip (which I’ll post more on later), and while a good chunk of the trip was “vacation,” I was able to sneak in a little bit of work, too.  And when your “work” looks like this, it really is actually quite fun!

This session was even more fun, because I first met this family about 9 years ago when we were all living in Colorado.  The military scattered us our separate ways back in 2008 and we’ve stayed in touch via Facebook in the mean time.  Of course, a few members of the family were mere twinkles in their parent’s eyes back then, which is why it was even more fun to catch up with them now while I was on the road in Pennsylvania!

We had an amazingly fun time together, which I think is evident by all these smiles. . .

What better way to end a sneak peek than with a little sibling love?!
