Bodega Bay Family Photography - The Chang Family

Over the Fourth of July weekend, I met up with the Chang family for a family portrait session at Bodega Bay. For you readers who don't already know, the "Chang Gang" (as they like to call themselves) is made up of 12 people -- four of which are young boys. So to be completely honest, leading up to the session I was a little anxious. Why, you ask? Well, I really wasn't quite sure what to expect!

To my surprise, I had nothing to worry about. This family stole my heart from the minute I walked in the door. I was greeted by hugs, smiles, and laughter. One of the boys offered to hold my hand as he guided me down the beach trail. And the "shy and reserved" one was talking my ear off! I felt right at home with the Chang Family.

When I set up the first large group portrait and snapped my first photo, all I saw were smiling faces and no blinking eyes -- a photographer's dream! So before I present these beautiful photographs of this very awesome family, I'd like to say thanks. Thanks for inviting me along for the day, and thanks for giving me a taste of #ThatChangGangLife. Having sand in my sneakers was completely worth it :)
