This marks the third family session we’ve done for Heather and her boys. But this one was very different from the last two.
Between then and now, Heather met Alvin, and the two fell in love. Alvin brought his own two children into the relationship. And now they live this adventurous, fun, dynamic life where the kids, all of similar ages, love being together and seeing their parents so happy. Alvin is this cool, interesting, intelligent guy who is such a good match for Heather, and we couldn’t be happier for them!
Ben met up with this crazy crew in Marin County where the personalities were set free and all that awesome, lively, kid energy exploded in the best of ways. He did an hour of studio portraits in Alvin’s backyard before everyone headed out to the beach for one more hour of photos.
When parents are preparing for family shoots with us, we always tell them we want their children to show up as their authentic selves – wild and free, soulful, unique. We want to see every aspect, every layer. These photos are exactly what we have in mind when we give that advice.
We adore this family so much. They deserve every second of joy in their lives, and we’re excited to see what the next installment of family photos will look like!
