Los Angeles Portrait Photography: The DeFrehn Family

Last week I had the pleasure of spending some time in the park with this beautiful family for a portrait session. Baby Charlotte was not only one of the most gorgeous babies I’ve had the pleasure of photographing, but she was also one of the happiest! She literally spent the entire session smiling or laughing or giggling or just kind of staring at me like I was crazy, which I’m totally used to. So, basically, Charlotte needs to be a Baby GAP model, ASAP.

I had a smile on my face the entire time I was editing these photos. Charlotte is just that cute. If you don’t want to melt into a pile of goo due to an extreme overload of cuteness, look away now.  You’ve been warned!

It was so awesome to see Charlotte’s bond with the family’s sweet dog, Kylie. They are already best friends!

Charlotte’s grandma also came along and I love these sweet shots of the two of them together.

So it’s clear Charlotte comes from a long line of beautiful women. It’s no wonder she’s so gorgeous! Here’s Charlotte with her mommy and grandma.

Usually I see things in color, but every once in a while a shot will speak to me in black & white. That happened with these next two.
