janica+matt+parker+bailey {studio3z family}

While we were in Los Angeles a couple weeks ago, we had the pleasure of photographing this adorable family!  The mama, Janica, saw on twitter that we were heading out there for a few days, and wrote me immediately about wanting to do a family session.  You see, she lives in Texas, but her husband is currently working in LA.  She and their adorable two kiddos (Parker and Bailey), happened to be planning a trip out there at the exact same time we were visiting. :)

Janica is a photographer herself, which translates to, she is never in any photos with her family;)  Well, we remedied that up right quick!  It was an honor (and big fun) to hang out in such a beautiful place, and just photograph a family enjoying each others company.

Parker and Bailey are adorable.  Bailey was singing “Veggie Tales” on repeat. ;)

I think Bailey was telling everyone to scoot away from her.  Girl needed some space!

We had to make sure and get plenty of shots of just the two of them….Janica, you are a strong woman to be without your man for so long!

To all you SoCal photogs out there….it must REALLY get boring to shoot in such luscious, luminous light…..EVERY. SINGLE. DAY.

{ok….I am letting my jealousy go.}

I just had to snag a shot of Brett, you know, doing his thang.

(P.S. My husband’s hot.)

Janica and Matt, thanks so much for sharing a bit of your {precious} time together to shoot with us.

Tell Parker and Bailey HI for Brett and Jess, and the “mans” ;)

Heather - OMG! LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE. You did it again Jess + Brett! Pictures of my dear friend and her ridiculously adorable + gorgeous family did NOT disappoint :) But I agree with Gail – you need to PADLOCK that camera to his wrist! And I must know whose super cute orange and teal bag that is and where I can get one….I will be stalking both of you on Twitter later to find out…

melanie - sweet. wouldn’t it be nice to have that light all the time? sigh. :-/ in the last shot of brett, isn’t it weird that i noticed jay and elijah first? we do what we gotta do to get the shots huh:) strange though, none of us really hesitate to do it. its like, if we were just goofing off, we probably wouldn’t take the risk, but while shooting…dont think twice! good work. oh yah. the tunnel shot is perfect.

Janica - Thrilled. Just so thrilled.
Jess and Brett, these pictures simply mean the world to me. Our little family is in such a unique and challenging and wonderful place right now and you have given us a precious freeze-frame through these images. We will treasure them always! Next time you’re in LA, you let me know. We’re totally down for a round 2. And 3. (celebrity entourage, while appreciated, is non-essential) ;)
