My session with The McColls had been a long time coming. Gwyn and I met sometime in late 2010 via their friends and neighbors The McGraw/ Pierson family who are long-term clients of mine. Even better, The McColls are yet another client who live close enough to me for me to walk over to their house. Of course I didn’t…because this is LA after all, and no one walks. :) Kidding…I might walk if I didn’t bring so much gear but I digress.

Scarlet and Tula were dressed as cute as could be when I arrived and just got even cuter when they came out decked out in full ballerina garb. I love girly girls and I just think that when they look back on these in 20 years it will make them smile to see themselves all cutsied up in tiaras and just having fun…in their home, with their doggies. I think it’s a beautiful way to remember childhood. And in my mind, the images I shoot are as much for the children as they are for the parents.

Thank you McColls for inviting me into your home and into your lives. I can’t wait to see some of these hanging on your walls!
