The One with Chris & Clay's Family

Chris is one of those guys that you just love working with because no matter what is going on, he never fails to give you a genuine hello and smile. Even when everything around us seems chaotic and out of control, Chris is calm and collected. Being someone that wears my emotions so close to the surface, I deeply admire Chris' ability to not let petty things get the best of you. So when he asked him to help get some family shots of him and his family, I was more than happy to somehow give a little back to someone that pours out compassion and kindness each day.

We headed out to Mountain Hawk Park in Chula Vista. What a beautiful park. It overlooks Otay Lakes and has rolling hills in the background. We had a great time rolling around in the grass and playground. It was such a treat to spend time with Chris, Clay and Tanner. Tanner was such a trooper throughout the whole shoot!
