the pakenham family | manhattan beach photo session

this sweet, sweet family. so much love among them and it was an honor having the opportunity to document it. in the midst of their big family gathering and travel schedules, these big kids surprised their parents with an extended family photo session and showed up at manhattan beach pier on time, looking fabulous and 100% less frazzled than you would imagine 9 people preparing for their photo shoot to be. the kiddos played in the sand while the adults snuggled and the sun set slowly behind the horizon. the most laid back and enjoyable extended family session to date. thanks for sharing your beautiful family and precious time with me, pakenhams. xo
