A few months before I left for a trip to visit a handful of dear, dear girlfriends in California, I had an inquiry on my Facebook business page from a sweet gal living in Los Angeles by the name of Inna. She happened to be the mother of four kiddos and noted in a comment, “If you’re ever out in L.A., I’d love to have you photograph my family.” Now, Inna didn’t know I was going to L.A., but it was so much fun to tell her I had a trip planned and that I would be delighted to squeeze a session in with her family as part of it.
Last week, we made that meet-up happen on the Santa Monica Pier. And in between chasing her ADORABLE children around as the sun set over the ocean waves, I couldn’t help but think about how wonderful the Internet can be. This picture—a sneak peek of all the sweetness that is to come—is simple proof of that.
