My good friend, Jeanine, from college who originally inspired me to go into photography in the first place recently put out a call for gently used baby items for her friend Kelly. Kelly’s husband is in the Navy and will be deployed when she is to give birth so Jeanine thought it would be nice to throw her a baby shower. I jumped at the opportunity to visit Jeanine and her awesome family in Long Beach and take some items I don’t need any more to Kelly.
Their home was so much fun to do photography in so I begged her to do some family portraits soon. There is so much yummy life and texture there. I just love the feel of the neighborhood which is across from CSULB where we met. It is pastoral suburban and eclectic and so not like San Clemente.
Kelly received some fantastic staples and everyone had a great time hanging out in the heat that didn’t seem so bad with a nice glass of wine, good conversation and awesome baby sitters for Merrik and Maliea!
