M Family Portraits
I communicated via email with Marisa for a couple weeks regarding a family portrait session. Marisa and her husband make a yearly trip down from Victoria to California to visit family, but in 2012 they postponed their trip because they had a beautiful daughter, Louisa! They decided to wait until she was a bit older to make the trip down and to celebrate the occasion, Marisa wanted some family portraits taken. I was thrilled to be a part of it and to help capture some of Louisa’s first memories with her grandparents and her great-grandmother. I could see the unconditional love and joy from both Louisa’s grandparents and great-grandmother. (I’ve been told that parents feel proud to hold their children, but have even more pride when holding their grandchildren!) It was great to see the love, smiles, and laughter on what turned out to be a beautiful, sunny day after a day of rain and clouds.
Thank you for allowing me to take part in photographing Louisa’s very first trip down to Southern California! Louisa was a trooper and I was so impressed by how well she could sit up with just the support of the Boppy pillow. I hope she can one day look back at these photos and see how she is constantly surrounded by love – and also look back to see her first experience and fascination with grass!
I love the following expressions from Louisa!
