we couldn’t be called ohana photographers if we didn’t love families. looking at our blog lately, you might have noticed we’ve been keeping super busy in between weddings with plenty of family sessions.

this one was just a little bit more than a regulation family session. our new friend fran was putting together a family reunion / fiftieth birthday party for her brother / family photo session in la jolla and needed someone to photograph it all. she turned to her good friends, and ours, the xanthopoulos family, for recommendations. luckily, our name came up, and fran gave us a call. joining me at this epic event were some of our good friends from authentic flavors catering. while they were putting the finishing touches on another awesome meal, i followed the kids around the yard for a little pre-dinner play-a-thon.

what an awesome family!

Oh my goodness all those children are gorgeous, and yes those are some incredible eyes! I especially am mesmerized by the b&w oldest boys eyes, wow! I adore the last picture the most!

It makes my heart happy to see children playing outside where they should be! I love all the pictures of the children in their natural habitat :) My favs are the beach ball ones and the funny faced little girl. She is just precious.

You guys are so fun and creative! This looks like you guys had a great time and I’m sure they are going to love these :) What a beautiful family.

they EYES! the blue eyes! SO SWEET!

Beautiful family pics! THe children all look so happy and like they’re having so much fun! I’m in love with the b&w pics, so timeless. Wonderful job Ohana.

What a good looking family! Those kids are just the cutest! Summer fun in SD, is right!

I am in love! Such beautiful pictures of these children! I wish we had pics like these of my siblings and I. Such a lucky family to have these. Great job!

These pictures of this family are fabulous, fun and just freaking awesome! Love how you captured the fun and youth in their eyes. Love your work!
