I’ve known Michelle since high school. We spent a year in Israel at the same boarding school our junior year. It’s always endearing to see someone you’ve known in their youth be in such a wonderful place in their life. Her smile when she looked at her daughter was filling for everyone. We were all for that moment in time, affected by her little girls pure joyfulness.
The sun peeked out from the clouds as the Box-O’Malley Family walked along the path to the secluded spot up the hill from the famous Griffith Park carousel. 5 year old Jameson was outgoing and talkative while his younger brother, Conner, was a bit shy and apprehensive at first. And then there was 5 month old Zoe. A sweet and observant baby who warmed up to me pretty quickly. I had the joy of documenting this family twice before. When mom, Laurene, was my son’s kindergarten teacher and she was pregnant with Conner. And then again when Conner was 5 months old. I love watching families grow and expand. I love the expansiveness of family.
