los angeles children photography | yang family

I have always wanted sisters.  I have a younger brother, but always seeked the connection that only a sister can provide.  I sought after that connection from two sets of cousins (hi mary, cyndi & aileen and “the Tran sisters” if you’re reading), but it will never be as deep as actually having your own sisters.  I wanted to share clothes and shoes, gossip and chat, be each other’s support system, etc etc.  I have found girlfriends to fill that void since, but after this session, I want sisters again!… and even daughters!

big happy family

The Yang family was in the area, visiting from Kansas City.   We brainstormed many location and prop ideas for their shoot.  I, of course, love fields and flowers, but they reminded me that they’re from Kansas and see it all the time.  LOL!  I’m so jealous!  In the end, we decided that nothing represented LA better than the beach…

So let me introduce to you big sister, Anna.  She’s eight years old.  At the end of the shoot, she hugged me and said thank you, all her own doing.  She’s the mature one who watches over her sisters.

Meet Keely.  She’s six years old!  She’s spunky and cute!  Her best friend is her big sister Anna!

And then there’s baby sister, Mia.  She’s independent and free-spirited!

The Yang family was made possible by these super parents!

Remember how I said Mia is independent & free-spirited?  Well, 2 seconds after the above photo was snapped, she ran off to do her own thing.   🙂

I love the next photo on the left!  I love watching fathers interact with their daughters.

I also wanted something to document their age at this time, so I had them all show me how old they are.  I know they will grow fast and will soon run off and start a family of their own.  Although it will seem like they run off so fast, they will always leave memories imprinted with us, just like their footprints.

And so will their smiles!

I hope you had a great stay in LA and hope to see you next year again!!  xoxo

This is, for sure, one of the best family shoot I heve ever seem! Thanks for your photos and all this inspiration!

As the youngest of 4 children I know how those girls will feel when they look at these pictures at the future!

lovely work..the spontaneity and natural flow of your photos are fantastic..

Leslee Mitchell - July 26, 2009 - 5:35 pm

Creative as always, Caroline!!! I always love your work. Any suggestions on how to keep sand out of your camera when photographing on the beach?

Carolyn Egerszegi - July 27, 2009 - 8:26 pm

I LOVE this session of yours too. So many great ideas for my family portraits!! Awesome work.

caroline - July 27, 2009 - 8:27 pm

Thanks, Leslee! I already ruined a lens by getting sand in it! I now avoid changing lenses. I’ll bring two bodies if I expect to need two lenses. I used mostly one lens for this shoot. I went wide for that first image, but the rest was all the same lens.
