callow-fornia love | venice family photography

It's been a while since I shared a proper family session around here, and I think this Venice shoot is the perfect feature to break that streak. In all honesty, the itch to show you these images overcame me even before I took out my camera—the whole experience played out like a chapter from my wildest family photographer dreams. Upon entering the Callow's quaint bungalow, I was greeted with the most sincere, hearty hugs and grapefruit LaCroix—both of which are the key(s) to my pregnant lady heart. It all ended it all with some therapeutic conversations about parenthood and even a few huge take-home goodie bags of baby gear for my little one on the way—and everything that happened in between was a collection of moments that I so wish I could replicate day after day. The playful love and adoration that these four have for one another was a true honor to witness and capture, and you just won't meet a more genuine and generous family. These images are the least I can offer to thank this family for their total and utter goodness—and now I'll let the pics do the rest of the talking.
