Palos Verdes Family Photographer | Yin Family


A family photo session at the beach is a great way to end the summer in the South Bay.  Being friends with mom, as she is a fellow photographer, it was only natural that we’d both want the other one doing our family portraits.

I was thrilled to meet Joe, Olesya, and their twin sons off of Malaga Cove in Rancho Palos Verdes.  One of my favorite spots for photos, since the beach is quieter and less crowded, giving us enough room to move around and for the kids to play together.

M and A are twin brothers, age 8.  They have different interests and hobbies, but are both avid readers and enjoy racing each other and horsing around together (as most boys do).  I made sure they got some time to splash in the water and encouraged them to run around some of the time. No kid wants to sit still for photo shoots, and knowing that, I never expect my clients’ children to be happy sitting in one place.  I make sure they have some time to run around and be silly, both while I photograph them in action and while I take a break from them and photograph mom and dad together.

Olesya and Joe were also so amazing to photograph!  Olesya wore a beautiful dress and looked amazing and towards the end of our session we stopped off to get some photos of just the two of them.  I had them dance and they immediately got silly re-enacting their wedding dance!

With both beautiful colors and playful smiles, this beach family session off of the coast of Palos Verdes allowed for glowing images of the whole family!
