Fancy Orange Juice With Pulp | Laguna Beach Family Photography

I wanted to share this session because it is so special to me. I shot this session for my aunt and uncle and my not-so-little, little cousin in Laguna Beach this past weekend. I wanted to do something special for them and this was my mother's day gift to her. I'm not always the most expressive person when it comes to showing affection, but it is my hope that she knows that through all of the ups and downs we've had throughout the years, I still look up to her, love her, and will never forget all the times she was there for me. Both, Tia and Tio. So very often growing up, my mom, siblings and I found ourselves knocking on their door in the middle of the night, needing a little comfort and support, and there was never a time they weren't there to lend a hand. I used to love hanging out at their house. It always smelled like warm laundry and peaches. And they always had fancy orange juice. You know the kind, the one with real pulp that actually tastes like oranges. I always looked forward to raiding their fridge lol. Looking back, I was lucky to have them there to help raise me. Unfortunately, I didn't always see it that way. But now that I am all grown up, I can see things and people for what they really are.

*Tia, I love and value you. Thanks for all the years of tough love and fancy orange juice. Pulp still makes me think of you. Every time.
