Summer is a perfect time to head to the park for some family time… and what a better moment than to celebrate little miss Olive’s 1st birthday!  This active one year old is already a pro walker and a speedy one at that!  Her smile is infectious and gives me the giggles.  I’ve been friends with her parents for years and I am so honored that I was able to document some little family moments of this awesome stage of life for them.

When choosing a location for your photo shoot it’s always wonderful when you can pick a meaningful place that captures an authentic day in your life. Polliwog Park in Manhattan Beach was the perfect spot for them since they go there frequently and it’s one of Olive’s favorite parks!
