Carmel Family Portraits. The Lilley Family.

 

 I just finished up this adorable little family's session & coincidentally they are dressed in patriotic colors, so I thought this would also make for a perfect Fourth Of July blog post!

 I met the Lilley family at Carmel River State Beach a couple weeks ago on a perfect summer afternoon.
 I also had my assistant & second shooter Jenna with me that day.

 
Jenna's view:

 My View of the same moment!
 This is Giovanni & he is totally adorable in every single way. Such a happy, happy babe!
 
 
 Isabella is pretty precious as well & packs some huge personality into her little frame.

 I just love this...
 And this! Swoon...
 

 This so reminds me of childhood.
 
 Toddlers are hard to photograph. Always. I often give families little tasks & activities to do during their session. This tricks toddlers into thinking something fun is happening & I always get an authentic reaction.

 We stopped by the Carmel Mission for a change of scenery. Check out this to-die-for side profile.
 And though she be but little, she is fierce.

 Gio. Just chillin'.

I love seeing one cohesive moment from two different perspectives.

 This is technically a blooper, but I loved the lifestyle feel to it. Just a mom with her kids.
This was total chaos. Bella was eating sand while Gio was face planting directly into the pile he had just made! Fun times.
 

Ashlee actually contacted me several months ago via email. She said she had found me thru a Google Search & had started following me on Facebook & Instagram. She told me that her & her family were moving to the area in a couple of months & she loved my photos & wanted to set up a session. This was like, the best compliment a client has paid me in a long time. I was seriously floating for at least two days. So Ashlee, thank you! I am humbled and honored that you chose me. I recognize and appreciate the love!
 
 
 
Randall & Ashlee,
 
I had such a fun time meeting you and your totally adorable mini me's. They are both little slices of heaven! Thank you for contacting me. It was such a great day!
 
xoxo
Jess
