I recently realized that I never shared my favorite of all of our family photoshoots, from when Charlie was 18 months old. Since it is officially spring and this shoot captures spring in Los Angeles, I thought I would share it today. Plus it gives me an excuse to go back and look at old family photos. We did this shoot at LA’s Runyon Canyon, which is one of our favorite spots in the city. We like to pick our favorite places for family photoshoots, like this one at LACMA. We even had our engagement photos at the beach in Santa Monica. That way not only is a special time in your life documented in the shoot, but one of your favorite places is as well.
I remember this being the first family shoot where Charlie wasn’t the most cooperative, but the first where I felt comfortable in my own skin after having him. It’s fun to look back and remember what 18 month old Charlie was like, with his faces and his hat – he wore that hat everywhere until it was way too small. It also makes me miss having bangs!
This shoot was featured on On To Baby ages ago, and you can see the full feature here if you’d like.
