Family Photoshoot at Los Angeles Beach | Welstead Family

Torrance Beach Family Photoshoot in Los Angeles

There was definitely some magic created during this session! If you look through my Instagram its pretty dang clear that Los Angeles beaches are my favorite location to photograph families. There is something so dreamy about our So Cal sun! Growing up near the beach, we were there almost every summer. I have so many amazing memories of being there with my family, playing, building sand castles, swimming way out passed the waves (which I would NEVER do now because I’m such a dang chicken!), and probably one of my most favorite sensations, and still is today, is to feel the warm sand beneath my body.

Because I believe that beaches hold such a magic to them, its usually one of the places I suggest for family photoshoots! I want my sessions to be fun and relaxed, I want a family to feel like they are creating the best day at the beach together and I just happen to be there documenting it. I want the kids to run free, ignoring me, the parents watching them in the distance full of love and pride, and big family cuddles because they are cold from running in and out of the water. My hope is that these photos will only validate what a beautiful day a family has shared together and that they can be printed and shared for generations.

If you’ve been following my photography for a while then you will have for sure seen these beautiful faces before! This is the 6th time that the Welstead family has hired me - SIXTH!!! My first ever photography gig was actually the birth of their first child! It makes my heart soooooo freakin’ full and grateful that this family continues to support me and my art. It makes me even happier that they have such an appreciation for documenting all of these exciting moments in their lives. This family photoshoot was to celebrate their growing little family!
