Sometimes you meet a family and you instantly feel like a good friend. They are so warm and loving, they just welcome you right in. Well, this family was just like that. I had the honor of photographing the whole DeSa Family...mom, dad, kids, spouses, grandkids...in San Juan Capistrano. Rosemary told me the last thing she wanted was fake family portraits. She really wanted organic and natural portraiture, rather than posed. They made creating that easy because they were so natural together as a family. Smiles came easily and love just oozed out...hugs, holding hands. They were all just happy to be together. Honestly, I smiled nearly the whole time working on their gallery. Here are a few of my favorites from our time together!
