mother daughter moments

Dypiangco Family

Photos can capture so many different emotions and looking through the Dypiangco's session, all I can do is smile.  I am sure by the time you have looked through it, you will be all smiles as well. Not only are they a beautiful family, each one of them individually are amazing!

Joe, M and Miranda, we are so thankful to have you in our lives.  Over the last months, we've not only become friends, but we are ohana.  [I've held back referencing a particular Disney movie, haha!] Looking forward to making more memories together.  We love you guys!

Strength in Love & Family

As many of you already know, the Mommy & Me Cancer Foundation MAMCF holds dear to my heart.   Having the opportunity to be part of these beautiful mommy's is truly a gift from above. Photographing so many amazing families allows us to be part of the fight and share in the support and strength to continue to fight.  

We spent some time together at the beautiful Fullerton Arboretum on the grounds of Cal State Fullerton. Meeting Christianne & her beautiful family for the first time, we knew love, strength and fight were eminent.  Their smiles and hugs exchanged said it all.  We invite you to take a moment to enjoy their amazing family.  

Christianne, it was amazing to meet you and your family.  Your strength and love for your family is nothing short of amazing.  We constantly have you in our thoughts and prayers and are with you always in your fight to beat cancer.  We love you!

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.
