The Breitenbucher-Duff Family I have known for the last 6 years. They are some of my favorite people ever. Kimberley just glows. She's originally from England but moved here when she was 11. I love hearing her say "garage"! Vern is a fellow photographer but he does more commercial stuff. People always ask if they have a million photos of the kids up and sadly Kimberley has to rely on me to take the family photos. Sorry to let the cat out of the bag, Vern! I get it though. I take a lot of photos of the kids and am trying my best to make sure I get photos up on the wall. Max is Assistant Number 1's age and Quincy (isn't that a great name?!) is Assistant Number 2's age. These kiddos are so full of energy and fun. Max is currently collecting coins and taking karate. Quincy Q (as she is known) is playing the violin and growing like a weed. She is definitely one of the tallest girls in her class.
We met at the Seal Beach Pier on a Sunday afternoon when the light was golden and beautiful. Both assistants were with me because...the beach! I think all the kids left sandy and ocean soaked by the end of the session. I love shooting under the pier - the shade helps with squinty eyes and the pier legs just adds such a gorgeous background. The waves are fun and keeps us all on our toes!
