A little late in getting this out on Monday, but you know…#momlife.
There are a few times when it’s necessary to invest in something that you probably wouldn’t otherwise. And one of those times are your family photos.
This past year I was able to finally wear the husband down in terms of getting a professional photographer for family photos to be used for our Christmas cards back in November. I took to none other than Yelp to try and find a local photographer and Toki Lee immediately popped up. She had amongst the highest reviews, positive comments, and looking through her portfolio she was able to capture the best photos for her clients. I knew in that moment I’ve found the one.
I would love to consider her our official family photographer as she’s quickly become my go-to for any future photos. I love how she makes us comfortable, gives us direction, but also allows us to act natural and candid as a family. Not to mention, I admire her personal story as a breast cancer survivor and the meaning she finds in what she does as a photographer.
So, when Greyson turned one we were so excited to have our follow-up beach photo session booked and I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day. That morning the sun was out, not too many people were on the beach, and the waves weren’t terribly large. We decided that San Buenaventura State Beach, which is just a mile or so from our home at Ventura Beach, would be the perfect location for our shoot.
Here are just a few of the amazing shots Toki captured of Greyson!
I’m a firm believer that every family should have at least one good set of photos taken by a professional. It takes the pressure off of you, it’s super convenient, and in the process you get to know one more person – and you’ll have photos you’ll treasure for years to come.
