There are few places that are able to encompass the beauty of golden hour like the beach - especially beautiful Long Beach! I met up with this family of five on the coast of Long Beach to capture their family portraits. Not only is it important to me to get "the shot" - AKA the perfect family photo for the living room wall - but it's important to me to capture the personality of the family as a whole, and each family member. It was such a joy capturing the smiles and curiosity of the little ones, and taking mom and dad aside for their own mini-couples shoot. Because, why not?
