Batres Family Session | Lifestyle Family Photographer |

There is something so magical about capturing images of friends. Not only do I get to spend quality time with people I love, but I get to create lasting memories of the people closest to me. Its a win-win.

When my friend Kim asked me if I would do photos for her family I was ecstatic—and I’m sure you can see why. Her family is absolutely gorgeous, and that combined with the gorgeous backdrops that Japan provides and it was a recipe for magic.

I was nervous that we were going to get rain this day. Rain held off—thank god. We still had overcast skies but just as we were getting to that good creamy light, things seemed to clear up and the tones that came through in this session blew me away! <3

Thanks Batres family for allowing me to be a part of this time in your lives. I hope you love your images as much as I do!
