This lovely family was referred to me by my fabulous sister in law Jill. Joel, the father of the Schneggenburger clan, is a co-worker of Jill and had seen the photos we shot of her and my brother a few months ago and decided to book a sitting for his family. It was a delightful afternoon to say the least:)!



My favorite shot of day, a little out of the norm, but I love it!







"All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth..."





And this is how the session ended, the kids win!!!;)

Upon editing on my beloved computer my phone chimed in a twitter from you saying you had a new post up and of course I had to check,,,,, addiction. (I know,, I should get help) Anyway,, what a happy little family,, so much fun. My favorite is the shadow shot too,, I LOVE shadows. Shadows of anything,, but people and trees especially. Anyway, when can you fit my cute little family in? I want some rockin shots for HUGE canvases in my house. Whoo,, RED BULL. Very nice,, I like you! I like your pictures!

These are so fun! I am actually editing some pictures from the same location right now and I love seeing what other photographers were able to pull from the same place. These are so so fun , and defiantly show what real family is all about!

How do you get your photos to look like they're a relief sculpture? It looks like the photo is popping out! Especially the first and the one of the parents in vertical color. HOW?! It's just fantastic.

Beautiful images. All of them. But I especially LOVE the shadow picture. So unique. Awesome idea! I also love the one of the kids looking like they are running towards you holding hands with the parents in the background.

A few weeks ago we shot photos of the Jacobs family in Newport Beach. You may also recognize Christian (the dad) if you are an Aquabats fan, or you may have even noticed his random cameos on Nick Jr. and Noggin being interviewed as one of the creators and directors of Yo Gabba Gabba. We're not usually ones to choose to shoot at the beach, but we thoroughly enjoyed this session, the whole family was awesome to work with, Christian brought his surf boards, and we even found some crazy ocean creatures along the beachside.





Tickle war!!!






Such adorable kids!




Seriously! Those starfish are REAL, no joke!!! I've never seen a starfish as big as the one that Oskar found!



My favorite shot of the day, that sunset was killer!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone, have a safe and happy holiday!!!!

holy cow, the aquabats grew up and had families?! hehe, these are so very cool. all those shots of them with the seastars are amazing, but the first one made me laugh out loud. my wife loved the pair of shots of the mom with her daughter, calm, serene, and the dad with his sons, crazy and hyper--it reminds us of our family. you may have inspired some new family shots for us =]
