Happy Together~ A Dreamy Session With The Reid Family

Last month I flew all the way across the country to California from Rhode Island,

and had the pleasure of hanging out with some of my favorite Ojai people…

the Reid Family!

We played in a meadow and created wonderful memories for their family.

Rich is a National Geographic Photographer, rarely in front of the camera, so they were due for some family pics all together!

I feel so blessed and honored Rich and Gloria would choose me to capture their love together and also photos their adorable daughter, R.

We had so much fun!


This is a family who LOVES nature and spends their time hiking and camping in beautiful wilderness, so we began by getting a few pics of that…


I LOVE this next one of Rich and Gloria!

They are such a sweet couple!

You guys look so great together!

They are awesome parents too…

I love this…


We happened upon a rope swing, and after determining it was safe,

R. took a ride!

Here she is mid-action, still graceful even when swinging from a rope!


I experimented with different tones in post processing with this next one…

Love the vintage feel


This little angel wasn’t feeling good the morning of our shoot, but you’d never know.

Her parents told me, but she never complained, and I forgot since we were having so much fun!

She just may be the easiest client I have ever worked with!

Since I have no girls of my own, I was having such a great time with her…


These are my favs of little R.

So dreamy and fairytale-like…

Just what I envisioned for her.


This next one {below} is one of my favorite family shots from our shoot…

So sweet!

R. was doing some great, VERY animated reading. She is very entertaining, I tell ya!


OK, I love these too!

Such a sweet pic!


I want to end on this silly one below

I love it! It just cracks me up!

Hee Hee! :)

Ahhh, you guys are so cute!

All of your pics brought a smile to my face as I worked on them in post processing.

Thanks again for being so great and choosing me to create artworks of your family,

as well as spending your January afternoon in a meadow with moi :)


As I stated above, this hubby and father, Rich Reid is a fantastic National Geographic Photographer,
