Simply Sweet | Malibu Family Photoghraphy

It's been quite a year for me both professionally and personally- there have been ups and downs [thankfully many more ups!], lots of shoots, and a bunch of traveling! One thing I've really come to understand this year is that life is a journey and through every experience we are able to grow, conquer fears, plow through obstacles, and knock down hurtles that may have once stood in our way. This past month alone has been an incredibly difficult one... I feel like have ridden that "super scary, faster than light, 50-foot drop" emotional roller-coaster one too many times... but, yet, every time I get off I am surrounded by hope and love. I am truly amazed by the strength of the human spirit and how love, above all else, has the power to heal. Every day is a gift. It's not easy to remember. It's not easy to live each day in this mindset. But it's something I strive to embrace.

These photos were taken back in March at a beautiful spot tucked away in Malibu, and every time I look at them they remind me of the huge amount of love this family has for one another- and that makes me smile. Inside and out.

'H' Family you are such a beautiful family to know and work with! I hope you are enjoying your photos- and I can't wait until we shoot again!
