The Shipmans | Family Shoot

I am a bad blogging monkey! Its been over a week and I am starting to get hate mail so I figured it best to post before I started getting death threats... lol. I appreciate all those who have sent me emails reminding me to post, they make me feel loved! ;)

Meet the Shipmans.... Truly one of the most beautiful families. I have been wanting to shoot their girls for over a year now and I finally got the opportunity. They are moving to Colorado in the next few weeks so we met up for one last rendevouz in Hermosa Beach. Given my CRAZY schedule, we were worried we couldn't make this happen, but we squeezed a shoot in right before I left for San Francisco Thursday Night.

Little Olivia was so full of energy, joy, and personality! Little Selah had foot surgery earlier that morning so she has the giant sock on but was toddling around as if nothing happened.

Thanks Shipman Family, I had a BLAST crawling around in the sand with you guys! :)




I played around with different actions....tell me what you think :).

I don't even know what to say Shyla. There is truly a tear in my eye. I am sad that my dear friends are moving, but so thrilled for this joyous new chapter in their lives...and two...you captured their beautiful spirits in these shots. Number 3 is one of my favorites- and I love the b/w of both girls. The sea weed pic of Selah is priceless...and Olivia is being her spunky joyous self. She is so beautiful. The last picture, ahhh, it looks like they are really leaving! Great work. So, we will have to set a date for you to come take pics of my family. Would love it.

You're the best.
