too cool for school | kira kids spring '16 street style shoot in venice beach

When given the chance to photograph for a kid's brand I adore, along the vibrant streets of Venice, and with my little one as one of the tiny subjects, you can bet I will respond with an enthusiastic yes before the question's even asked! This shoot for Kira Kids combined everything I love about photography (California light, pops of color, my darling daughter, etc), and I only wish we had a b-roll of the behind-the-scenes action and the hilarity that ensued. As you may be able to decipher from some of the images, Cami and Milo's budding friendship began to mimic that of a married couple—the dynamic between these two deserved its own rom-com. And sweet Ian Chen (star of ABC's Fresh Off the Boat) was a total pro and a complete delight—and between you and me, I think Cami was pretty smitten judging by the way she casually became his little shadow. Needless to say, I would work with this crew any day, and I think my daughter would wholeheartedly agree. 

Special thanks to the unstoppable Lucia Tran, as well as the brilliant Christine Tang. Also, Cami's adorable spotted shoes are from Zuzii, and her coordinating bows are Free Babes.
