sweet family // the hatten family

this is the Hatten family - 3 boys, 4 girls, and 2 loving parents. they are a hysterical, loving, and joyful bunch and i was honored to capture their family photos! 

i love all of the backgrounds, stories, hearts, and personalities reflected in each of these beautiful smiles - that is what family is all about! you'll see what i mean:

after the smiling and the posing, we took a quick break to play in the waves and frolic in the sand, and it ended up being my favorite part of the shoot! i love capturing people in their element, where the joy is uninhibited, raw, and such a delight to frame.

 dear Hatten family, thank you for allowing me to spend the afternoon with you all! =)

senior // corey

this handsome guy is not only a high school graduate this summer, but will also become my brother-in-law in just a few weeks, and i could not be more excited! we ventured out into orange county a little while back to snap these photos and commemorate such a momentous milestone in his life. i can't wait to see what God has in store for this young man.

corey, thanks for being such an all-around awesome guy - i couldn't be more glad to marry into such a great group of siblings-to-be!

four adorable kids, a beautiful sunday in the park, and many laughs, hugs, and silly faces pretty much describes my afternoon with the Bean family. there is so much love and kindness in this family, that it was just a joy to spend time capturing their life through my lens. take a peek through these photos, and you'll see what i mean! 

dear bean family, thank you for entrusting me with these precious family photos - your family is such a blessing and i can't wait to see what the next few years hold for you!
