The Schloss family has been a super awesome family since day one! Our relationship with them started about five years back when I (Amelia) was hired to nanny for Baden (the beautiful little girl you see in the first shot below). During that same time I began to be interested in photography, so Baden got to be my practice-on subject for all of my school projects. Also, almost every year since then the Schloss family has hired me to shoot their family portraits at the end of each summer. It has been such a pleasure coming back around year after year watching their family and children grow, especially Baden, since she was my side-kick for an entire year!

The session was shot at their brand new house in Manhattan Beach. I really enjoyed this because it was an environment that everyone was comfortable in and it felt more relaxed that other family portrait sessions I had done in the past.




No doubt, these kids have the best blue eyes I have ever seen!




My favorite shot of the day!

Finally made it onto your blog!! We were sorry to lose such a great nanny, but happy to have you in our lives as our official family photo biographer! You are truly gifted and happy that Baden was there at the begining. We have some great shots from your early "experimental" years. Thanks again and see you soon!
