Denver To LA

My last shoot of the year!... couldn’t have been more fun and full with feelings of sisterhood.  I spent yesterday afternoon with the awesome energetic smart and sassy Rodriguez girls, four sisters who are visiting from Colorado and spending the holidays with their Dad here in LA.  They wanted plenty of sun and fun for their shoot, so of course we went to the beach and Santa Monica Pier.

All-American girls… ages 15, 12, 17, and 9.


Here comes the sun!…


Their dad, John, is a firefighter, a hero, a big kid, and the girls’ biggest fan…


See what I mean?


Once we hit the beach, their competitive streaks really came out!…


It was so great to take a few moments in the midst of the holidays and get our feet wet, get a bit sandy, salty and sweaty… let loose and laugh together.


I had the best time with these girls!… They made me feel like their nutty 5th sister, and I have to say – I kinda liked that 🙂

Hope you have a beautiful and free-spirited end to 2009!
