Natalie, Nancy and Liz wanted to do something special for their mother, Martha. Martha’s birthday was actually just over the weekend. I was told that it has been years since the family had their portraits done. So the sisters planned a surprise photo shoot for Martha in Heartwell Park in Long Beach, CA. How awesome and sweet is that?! It actually rained earlier the day of the shoot, but the family was eager to keep the session even if they had to be in wet grass. Thanks ladies! Martha has five beautiful grandbabies and you can tell she adores each one. The family was such an easy going, loving, up for anything group. At one point, Martha even kicked off her shoes so she could go down the slide and play with her grandbabes! It made it super easy to photograph them, especially with their gorgeous smiles. Here are some of my favorites from the shoot.
Also if you recognize a few faces, its because I shot Natalie’s maternity photos. You can view those here.
