Shannon and Garrett are the sweetest couple from Iowa, who had decided to bring their style-A game to the streets of Paris.

Brooke and Cameron live in Hermosa Beach, California, and they just had their baby Charlotte a few months ago. When Brooke told me she wanted to do a family session – which would be Charlotte’s first one – I was really excited. I met them in Cameron’s parents’ beautiful house in Palos Verdes, and we spent a couple of hours together. I can’t say enough great things about this couple, and the wonderful family that they have become. And of course, the amazing California light was part of the excitement!
