April 27, 2023 - A Southern California Summer's End Session

By Tiffany Chi, Tiffany Chi Photography

Southern California

About This Session:

It was a beautiful evening at the tail end of a southern Californian summer. The dry summer heat cooled slowly before sunset, and the crisp Pacific waters tickled our sandy feet. Melanie and Mike had recently moved back down to southern California after a long time away, along with their two kids, Cami and Jeremy. The transition was difficult for them, and it was important for Melanie to capture the beauty of the ocean and sweet candid moments of her family in their new "home," so that's what I set out to do. I am always inspired most by the love and playfulness that families share together. This family was sweet and full of smiles just being in each others' company.

A Quote from the Parents:

"The most important thing I hope my children always come back to is to remember how incredibly loved they are and that they are of value in this world. My hopes and dreams for them are to feel comfortable to grow into the amazing humans I know they are, whatever that might mean for each of them."
