A couple of years back, Mark and I thought it would be interesting to create a family portrait for our (then) pregnant daughter Kelly and her husband Andrew Harman, at the crowded Balboa Pier in Newport Beach.  Everyone who we know loves the images, which hang as a gallery in her home.

Now that Luke has come along, they need a new portrait.  I thought it would be fun for Mark to take them to the Grove in LA.  It didn’t occur to me that a Sunday afternoon would be an insane time to do a portrait there.  Nevertheless, everyone was up for the idea.

As usual, Mark pulled it off beautifully.  The portraits will make another wonderful grouping for Kelly, and it will be a very special gift that she’ll enjoy for a long time!

I’m so proud of Mark – it takes a bit of nerve to shoot in some of the locations we’ve been visiting lately.
