It had been way too long since we had seen my family and we finally got a chance last week for my cousin’s wedding in California. Afterward, my boys got to spend a ton of time with their cousins, Amanda (7), Jalen (5) and Abby (3) running around on the beaches of Laguna and San Diego – do they know how good they have it?? Geesh. Anyway, I was so excited to do pics of the whole Shih family including mom Yvonne and dad Wes.
I don’t know if it’s that they are so gorgeous, have such amazing coloring (the eyes, the hair!) or that they come in a trio, that I can’t ever wait for my next chance to shoot the Samuelsen girls. This time, I finally got all three sisters together for a casual shoot at home. I was inspired by keeping a modern style but with a vintage twist.
There is something just so perfectly lovely about grandmothers isn’t there? With Owen and Luke’s grandma, aka ‘Mimi’, in town – there was lots of kisses and trips to the park between them all week. I’m glad we had a chance to get squeeze in a session so Mimi could get some pics of her and her handsome grandsons to take home with her. Seeing three generations together in a portrait is, in a word, awesome.
Btw, I am currently loving my friend’s blog aptly titled ‘Lunch With Grandma‘ which perfectly captures all kinds of lovely (and hilarious) nuances of our grandparent’s generation. Here’s to grandmothers everywhere!
