I met Isabel, Robert and their two children Sofia and Joaquin at Laguna Beach on a very gloomy day. After a few minutes, the fog burned off and it was sunny all the way! We hung around Laguna and I was literally following Robert and his family to get to the nooks and crannies of the place. It certainly felt like a VIP tour. While walking (and talking) I found out that Robert actually knew Laguna Beach like the back of his hands and has apparently been taking Isabel to this beautiful little town. For Isabel, the highlight was the red telephone booth and it actually turned out to be one of my favorite spots during the shoot as well. So here’s the Ruiz family!
This by far is one of my favorite shots. So much life, ruffles and laughter to be had with these two!
Isabel and Robert have been married for quite some time, 12 years I believe. Their affection for each other absolutely showed in the photographs. While walking (and talking) Isabel mentioned that Robert remembered the outfit she wore on their first date AND proposed to her on the very same spot.
I had such a fantastic time with this family and I am so thankful to have gotten the chance to get to know Sofia and Joaquin as well. By the way, these kids are naturally born for the camera. The photo above, was totally candid…
