Every time a former client reaches out to request that I take more photos of them – it just hits me right in the feels. Seriously though, repeat clients are the greatest compliment. Not just because they know I can take a good picture, but more so because it shows they trust me and every time we get to work together our relationship gets more established. This Laguna Beach family session is a great representation of why I love that so much!
A few years ago, I did branding photography for Serendipite Design, Valerie’s interior design company. I loved this branding session because Valerie and her team understood the value of having non-traditional, creative professional photos. I had so much fun with her and her team that day – and this Laguna Beach family session was no different!
Laguna Beach Family Photos
One thing might stand out as you scroll through these lovely family photographs. Valerie’s daughter is an adult. My blog feed is usually littered with young families, and sometimes couples with their new puppies. But it’s a rare treat to photograph a family session with adult children.
Let this be a lesson to you (and me) that it’s just as important to capture this season of life with professional photographs as it is when you have a newborn or toddler. My son is so little yet, it’s hard to even envision him as an adult (insert tears here) – but this lifestyle session gave me so much to look forward to. I loved watching Valerie, her husband and her daughter interact with each other, laugh and have conversations.
I’m so thankful that Valerie entrusted me to capture this season for her on camera. So much about motherhood feels fleeting – but images last forever. It was a complete delight to spend a few hours watching and getting to know this family better!
