Laguna Beach Family Portrait: Maria + Alexander

This beautiful family came from Russia as a family of three and returned home as a family of four.  What better way to commemorate their time in Southern California, then to have their time here documented at the beach.  Maria emailed me shortly after she gave birth to her son and through email, I learned that she and her family (including mom) were visiting Southern California.  She wanted to have photographs of her family, including her new baby, at the beach.  The sun, the sand and the waves.  How perfect.  We met up one evening, hung out and played in the sand…and meanwhile, I got a few awesome snaps of the family at their best, at play!

Maria, thank you for choosing me to photograph you and your family.  You all are absolutely beautiful and kind.  Thank for you for sharing your family with me, and hopefully we’ll see each other again.  XO
