“Family is the most precious thing we have and it is always such a privilege to get to spend a day capturing a parents and children being themselves. Diana and Andrew have been married for over ten years and have two precious children. Their love for each other and their kids is so evident and my goal was to be able to freeze this stage of their lives. One day, as their kids go off to college, they’ll be able to look back when they were little, filled with joy as they run in the California sun.
This session was extra special for them. Their family had just been through a really difficult, emotional time and this session was a way for them to celebrate that they had made it. It was a celebration of life and family and joy and beauty. And as their kids ran around, I was reminded of the importance of my job. I am invited into people’s lives and asked to capture them as they are – not with fake smiles as everyone stares at the camera, but with real joy and love for each other.” Valentina, Photographer
