Los Angeles Family Portraits at Exposition Park Rose Garden

One of the many things I love about Los Angeles is that there is no shortage of cool places to take pictures, and I’m constantly being clued in to new places I didn’t even know about. Beth just got her PhD from USC and wanted to celebrate with some family portraits while her parents were in town for graduation. She suggested the Exposition Park Rose Garden and I’d never been there before but it turned out to be the perfect place for a lifestyle family session. The whole family was so playful and their daughter was the most adorable, expressive toddler I’ve come across yet. It was a bit of an overcast day, but lots of silly faces, cute dances, and running around made this a really energetic shoot and I think the photos captured all their vibrant personalities in a fun, modern way.
