I had the opportunity to take family photos of Leslie, her husband Daniel and their sweet son Campbell a couple of weeks ago in Palos Verdes. I met Leslie during a vendor networking event in Texas back in 2013 and instantly fell in love with her floral arrangements. Leslie is a true artist and you can check out her work here! Soon after, my husband and I left Texas and moved back to California and 5 years after leaving, Leslie and I reconnected here in California! I'm fortunate to have captured her beautiful family portait session and glad to have met Campbell. It took a small bit to get him to warm up to me but at the end of the evening, he couldn't stop giving me leaves to throw into a fountain. Kids and water...I don't know what it is about water but they're so mesmerized by it! I guess you can say we're best friends now.

I‘m incredibly thankful to be able to capture moments like these and capture the little details that surround each family.

Looking at these photos I can see how much love this kid is surrounded with. And those eyes? Doesn't it just melt your heart?
