The Lost Boys – Playdate Session – Los Angeles, California – Children and Family Photography

I’m really excited to begin my blogging journey. This is my first “official” post, here we go…

I met this sweet family years ago. They are friends, clients and huge supporters of me and my business. Their mom Laurenne and I conceptualized this shoot together. I am not a fan of props during my sessions typically but every now again a nice subtle prop just adds a little something special to the session. And that was the case for this session. I am thrilled with how these images came out. About 2 years ago I added the “playdate” session to my business.  Although every session with children for me is like a play date, the playdate session is a little different and takes a little more planning.  Mom and I went back and forth via text and email with ideas for the session. We quickly settled on a theme and outfit changes…Then mom came with a car load of clothing and props and I selected my favorites and we went for there. (thanks for trusting me Laurenne)

Aside from the crazy heat and humidity, this shoot was AMAZING! The boys and I had a blast. I really look forward to working on more fun sessions like this, this fall.

Feel free to leave a comment, share this post, and show some love.  Much appreciated!

Love and blessings,
Loreta

PS. Thank you Gabby and Olivia for your help on this shoot!  Your extra hands were essential!

    As the parent of the boys in this photo shoot- I took a week to sort my thoughts before leaving a comment- because the day this Blog was posted, I was overwhelmed with emotion and joy… and wanted to post a comment that reflected those thoughts without being an emotional mess… so here it goes:

    When Loreta called me with this idea, I rearranged heaven and earth to make it happen- because working with Loreta is being in the presence of true-God-given talent and it is something worth rearranging a schedule to witness. I was thrilled with this concept- a break from the usual, stuffy, rushed family portraits I usually try to squeeze in before the holidays like so many. We plotted and planned and finally met.

    The day was fun, we got dirty and wet, climbed, imagined and played. As with anything with kids, its a lot of work. But I think anyone can agree- the end result was amazing and well worth it!

    I realize what I love so much and what made me so emotional, was with this play date shoot- Loreta captured my boys in a way I see them everyday. Everyday I am blessed to witness play moments and take a lot of “mental pictures” to save in my heart- but Loreta actually captured them to live on forever. To share with the everyone. Now the world sees the strong, serious side of my persistent 2nd child, the always comedic and people-person antics of my oldest and the simple joy and curiosity of my baby who just keeps everyone and everything else in balance. I cried when I saw the pic in the tent- because I knew as their mother I could recreate that pic in 10 or 20 years and see the same faces- the same personalities- the same spirit she took that day.

    Loreta’s talent is simply unmatched. I am so blessed to have had her capture some of my most treasured family moments, but I am more blessed to know her, to witness & work with her and to call her a friend!

    Blessings and my love and respect always!!! xoxoxoxoxo
