Can I go back a few years? Like 8 years or so? I can start with once upon a time I took a photo of a family in Manhattan Beach, CA and there I met their adorable little boy named Dom. The rest is history.
Well not exactly. The Yang's grew their family of 4 (I say 4 because we can't forget Milo...you'll see him in a minute) to 5. It's always an incredible honor to capture my families in various stages of their lives. Plus, I always end up pulling from the hard drive of previous shoots we've done and I start reminiscing. I'm sentimental like that. Seeing families grow, seeing kids go from needing their parents hands to help guide them as they take their steps to being able to go down steep hills without the aid of anyone and seeing their personalities shift and change, it's amazing.
