stoico documentary family portraits | monrovia, los angeles

happy 6 month old baby smiles and giggles at the cameraThat’s one happy babe! I’m always so thankful to see the Stoico family! I’ve had so much fun continuing to tell their family’s life story through in-home documentary family portraits at their historic home in Monrovia, near LA. They are so amazing at going with the flow of the sometimes crazy parenthood moments, which makes for a great time together.

I love to start by snapping a few shots that are really just for the purpose of getting the kiddos warmed up to the camera, but sometimes I find some really natural photos within that time, even before the official start of their family portrait session! los angeles documentary family portraits children warm up to the cameraAnd then we ventured outside to their great little backyard. Zoe has so much energy nowadays, while Amelie is just learning to find her little toes.
