The Wizard of Oz

When you combine super nice, beautiful people with happiness and comfort in a place that resembles a set of The Wizard of Oz, it just doesn’t seem real.

The L Family’s Bay Area Lifestyle Photography session was enchanting and looks almost mythical.

See the two munchkins in Emerald City?  :)  Or perhaps this looks more like a page of a Dr Seuss book?

The first time I met Julie, I asked her if she was a model.  I think she thought I was joking… or full of it.  ;)  But seriously, look at her!

I am in love with this Mommy-Munchkin Sandwich:  the expressions, the hand positions, the funny trees behind them, the aura of love that surrounds them.  MUAH!

The hazy light, the straight lines of the wood with the crookedness of the tree behind them, and the casualness of the kids…

It’s a perfect balance of interesting and moody.

We held a Silly Contest, which resulted in some great laughs.  The parents and children couldn’t see each other, which made it all the more fun.

By the way, I was going to clone out the Warning sign, but I think it adds to the humor!

Here is one of the last photos I took of the session.  I love how they all sink into one another.  And of course I love the delicious light!  <3
