Good old fashioned fun | family portraits in San Jose, CA

A million years ago I met up with this family for portraits.  I love love love shooting their portraits each year and watching this little guy grow.  The first time I took their family portraits he was so little (see him here)  and as the years have gone by .. he’s grown and grown. (and see him here too)

My time with this family is always so much fun, we laugh together, jump, skip and then after our session we have started a tradition of going to dinner together. I’m not sure what’s the best part of the day laughing with them or eating with them!
