La familia Gonzalez is one of those families that when put together under one roof, or in my case one beautiful scenery, come to life with laughter and love. The famiy's laughter and smiles filled the air at the beautiful Claremont location. The lovely lady in blue jeans, white sweater and rockin' boots is actually one of my amazing coworkers turned friend, now sister. I love her to pieces and don't know what I'd do without her genuine friendship. This was the first time I got to meet her wonderful family. At first, they were a bit nervous as this was their first professional family photo shoot (I am so honored to have been their first photographer), they soon relaxed when I began to ask questions as to which of the "kids" was the funniest, most serious and troublemaker of the three.  And almost instantly 2 of the 3 ratted out one of their own as the troublemaker (my lips are sealed though). Capturing their genuine love and closeness was easy. And did I mention that this is one good looking family too! I had so much fun hanging out with the Gonzalez's. 



As a photographer, I love how I get to have a personal sneak peak into a family's life and capture some of their little sweet & funny moments. 

It was such a pleasure photographing my good friend and sister, Lupe and her wonderful family.  They were such a warm, loving, and funny group to hang out with.
