BOWIEEEEEEEEEEEEE!! This little character turned one this month. Hooray!! Bowie Swan is just a little firecracker! I was so happy to spend the afternoon at Liz and Drew’s home in Los Angeles for their documentary family photography, capturing their favorite parts of life right now in casual candid in-home portraits. mom and daughter sit on step together each afternoon at their in-home documentary family photography portraitsLiz and Bowie have a little afternoon ritual of hanging on the steps, waiting for dad to get home. A little girl time! young family plays in teepee during in-home documentary family photography portraits in los angelesOne of my favorite things about witnessing and capturing Liz and Drew as parents is their balance of total support and love for Bowie while constantly encouraging her to try new things. All of us need a little helping hand, but also need to spread our wings, right? That image above perfectly sums up what I’m talking about in their parenting style. little girl plays in teepee during in-home documentary family photography portraits in los angelesVICTORY!

Seems like it’s the hub of life with kids at this age. One of their daily family rituals is storytelling at bedtime. Bowie was so excited to get treated to this in the afternoon! parents read with one year old daughter during their los angeles documentary family photography portraitsSometimes Drew gets to work at home, so he has this great office space.
