I love it when multiple generations come together for a natural family photography session. Owen’s grandparents were in town for a visit and wanted to capture some family photos with their three-year-old grandson and his parents while they were in Los Angeles. I photographed this family at Temescal Gateway Park, in Pacific Palisades. It is a great location for families with kids because it’s easy to park and offers a fun variety of different backgrounds. It’s a really central location for families on the west side because it is so easy and simple to get to.
This session was really fun! Owen is currently obsessed with planets, and was more than happy to cooperate for the photos as long as he was allowed to hold his Planet Earth ball! I typically tell parents not to stress out about their kids holding props in photos. Toys keep kids cooperative and happy during shoots, and everyone has a great time. The genuine joy shows in photos. It’s also a great way to remember the things their kids enjoyed at that time in their life! My photography style is all about capturing natural family photography moments; I’m not into stoic and posed photos. My goal is for sessions to be fun and enjoyable for everyone involved!
