portrait session at Peter Strauss Ranch, Agoura, CA

Peter Strauss Ranch, in Agoura CA is a wonderful park for photographs just about any time of year. And November/December is especially good, because fall comes late and the leaves are turning. Mix that with some bright sunshine and the backgrounds just light up. These twins are out with their big brother for their first family portrait session.

My portrait photography is not all about posing. The images that speak to me the most are the little moments that show a family's love. Like this impromptu dandelion-blowing session below.

These twins crack me up! I got so many amusing expressions from them, it was hard to pick the best one.

I knew the two year old was going to need something to entertain him, so I brought along this vintage scooter to keep him interested.

Always carry a basket with you, because you never know when you'll find some babies in the woods.
