as another year comes to an end we are re-visiting our beginnings, our first clients to be exact. we, like most other small business owners, started out with a dream and zero clients. it took a little luck and a chance encounter to get us off the ground.
enter the xanthopoulos family.
after meeting them for the first time, the xanthopoulos’ became our first clients and the first members of our extended ohana. since that day we have been asked to share and capture some of their most important family moments. the work they have given us aside, having this family come into our lives has been a HUGE blessing. they are some of the most wonderful people we could have ever hoped to meet in life. i am inspired to be better at everything i do because of them. they will always hold a special place in our hearts and in our ohana.
in what has become a tradition we look forward to every year, we joined the xanthopoulos family for a day at the la jolla beach and tennis club to take some fun photos for their family christmas cards. we didn’t have snow, but we had plenty of sun, sand, and smiles. i couldn’t ask for anything more.
these first two shots are fun little sample christmas cards. have you already sent yours out? :)
i LOVE taking photos of this couple!
they are the most in-love couple i know. their love reminds me of the love my grandparents shared for over 72 years. it is true and it makes my heart smile.
thank you both for believing in us and continuing to bless our family.
may all your days be merry and bright.
merry christmas and a very happy new year!
