Raul and Erika must have some amazing genes to create this little cutie pie! After Raul's sister had gifted his family a portrait session with me last Christmas, they decided to cash in on Evan's first birthday! What a good choice! Evan is just about to start walking and was full of smiles. My best weapon to get giggles was telling Mom and Dad to kiss! He loved it!
After some searching for a central location for the shoot, we found El Dorado Park in Long Beach. I feel in love as soon as I arrived! The park has so many trees and a lot of little lakes. That is a big ask for a park in Long Beach! Golden hour provided some beautiful light as we wandered around the well manicured park. When we finished up, Evan gave me a little kiss which sent me on my way with a big smile!
