I got to take absolutely magical family photos in the Santa Monica Mountains recently!

Maria and Andrew are a sweet family of 3. They have been together for about 9 years and married for 5 years. They both work in a medical field: Maria as a Clinical Pharmacy Manager and Andrew as a urologist. One of their favorite things to do is travel and they have visited many places already!

They have recently welcomed the cutest little boy Evan into their family and couldn’t be happier! Evan is 11.5 months old in these photos, and everyone can’t wait to celebrate his 1st birthday! Since Evan was born, their days are filled with home bliss. Maria loves making gourmet baby food for Evan in her free time and Andrew has too many hobbies to mention! He reads up on anything/everything and teaches himself how to do things and is always working on home projects.

As I got to know them during our photo session, I could see how loving and caring they are for one another. Evan was such a charmer and gave us so many smiles. I could see he loves being around people! It was so fun to hear how much he loves listening to the “Waka Waka” song by Shakira and play peekaboo with him!

Maria and Andrew, thank you VERY much for having me! It was truly a pleasure to capture you guys and see all the love your family shares among these beautiful Santa Monica Mountains. I hope these photos will bring you joy for many years to come!
