Fashionistas At Disney Concert Hall | Los Angeles Family Photographer
We absolutely loved this session at Disney Concert Hall! Normally SoCal families want their sessions to take place in one of two places, the beach or the Venice canals. And of course, there's a reason, these locations are beautiful! But this family wanted something different, they're modern, edgy and fashion forward. We knew the architecture of the Disney Concert Hall would serve as the perfect modern backdrop for this modern family.
Hema (mom) is a Hollywood stylist (follow her blog here), so when we gave her free reign on wardrobe - we knew she would dress the family in something fun. And she delivered! These two cuties were fashionistas, just like their mom. They wanted to show they had attitude and a moody model side (notice big sister's 90's inspired choker. Love it!).
Our philosophy is not to force a smile, if we can't get them to smile naturally we go with it. Sometimes the best shot is the one that doesn't have a smile! The girls were a little shy with us when we began. But after putting them in front of the camera they really opened up, which is the complete opposite of what typically happens. They are not only beautiful but they take direction like seasoned pros. If you follow Hema on Instagram you'll quickly understand that these girls are no strangers to the camera.
Not only were the girls giving us gold but Hema and Ganesh were relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera as well. We just loved their couple shot, we have no idea Ganesh whispered into Hema's ear but it got a great reaction.
We truly enjoyed this session and love the portraits (if you've ever seen one of our cards you will recognize this family - that's how much we love them!). We are definitely looking forward to our next session with the Persads.
