Family Portraits with the Maz Family // Lakewood, California


There are so many moments in our lives that are uncertain. When you find yourself in one of these moments, it's the little things that matter.  The smiles on your children's faces for no apparent reason, the cool breeze on your face as the wind blows, that small trinket that you got from the vending machine in front of the supermarket that once meant nothing, now means the world to you.  

This is the case with the Maz family.  When Maria asked to schedule a session with her family, I didn't know any of this, as this was my first time meeting Maria and her beautiful family.  As we chatted through our time together, she shared with me that these photos were super special.  At that moment she shared her moment of uncertainty in her life at that time.  You see her father had been in the hospital & she wanted to be sure to take photos of her and her family as she put it "you just never know."  

I've said it before and I say it all the time: one of the greatest blessings as a photographer is to be able to capture these moments that may or may not mean much now, but looking back one day will mean the world to you. 

Maz family, thank so much for allowing Chris and I to capture these moments with your beautiful family.  I look forward to our next session together soon and know that you and your family are in our prayers.
