Children's Session | Claremont

I was referred by Palos Studio to a family for a grandchildren's session as a surprise for the grandparents. I was excited for this, as I knew it was going to be a great challenge to photograph 6 kids, ages 3 months to 13 years old. And boy was I right. It was great running and playing with the young ones, trying to make them laugh & smile, and just capture their carefree and enegertic spirits.
We met up at the Claremont Colleges, and it was a pleasant surprise when I realized I already knew one of the moms! She and I used to work together about 10 years ago. What an incredibly small world. It was so awesome to see her with her husband and 2 children, surrounded by her sister, brother, and brother-in-law and their families.
Here are a few of my favorites from the day. I hope they enjoy the pictures as much as I did taking them :)

Happy Valentine's Day from Hailey

I have known Kim since High School. We even worked our Summer job as lifeguards together at Raging Waters *Have a Raging Day* hahaha. It has been so wonderful that we have been able to remain in touch over the years. She is one of those types of friends you can go without talking to for 6 months, and pick right back up from where you left off. I wish it was only 6 months since I have seen hear beautiful face, but it has actually been nearly 2 whole years!!
I last saw her at her baby shower, which means I haven't met her absolutely gorgeous daughter Hailey until today! What a happy and innocent sweetheart she is. I couldn't get enough.

 Kim wanted to surprise her husband with some pictures for Valentine's Day, and of course I had to take her up on that offer! Hailey got all dolled up in her fancy jewelry, pink tutu, leg warmers, and cowboy boots.
Here are a few of my favorites of the day.
