The Greene Family

My shoots with the Greene’s are always an adventure.  Last year we braved dead fish, birds, a gang of scary teenagers and the biggest cockroaches I’ve ever seen at the Salton Sea.  All of this while I was 6 months pregnant with Brayden.  I was a little scared he was going to come out with 3 arms, but he ended up okay.  This year we had LOTS of ideas of where to do their shoot, but they were all a little too ambitious and we ended up scrambling for a location at the last minute.  We shot in a very industrial (and pretty scary) part of Long Beach and under a freeway on ramp.  I love the way they turned out (and yes, Michelle, maybe I love them so much I just might marry them!).

I’m sure you’ll recognize the Greenes.  Their two adorable kids end up on my blog a lot and they are our bestest friends.  We have lots of Bittel Greene family adventures together.  Michelle is my BFF and we’ve both been through a lot this year and I’m glad we’ve had each other to lean on in the hard times and laugh together during the good times.  She’ll make fun of me for getting too sappy (because she makes fun of me for everything I do), but she really is one of the best friends a girl could ask for.  She’s the type of person who does things without you even asking, gets you things that you don’t even know you need, and does it all without expecting a thank you.  She’s a truly selfless and giving person and I’m so lucky she and her family are in our lives.

Okay, enough with the sappiness.  Onto the pictures!  And of course here’s the slideshow as well!  Michelle, Jake, Owen, and Emma have a fabulous time at Disneyworld!  We can’t wait to hear all about it!

  11. What an adorable family! I am sooo lovin that poofy skirt! Those kids have grown so much since last year [and dads beard too ;) ] . I love both last years and this years sessions, totally fun!

  12. You always seem to pick the craziest locations for us. I don’t know if the Salton Sea or this was worse. The streets of LBC weren’t too bad, but that freeway underpass was pretty scary. Especially when we thought the police were going to take us in ;) You are an amazing photographer and I am honored to call you my best friend. Thank you so much for doing this, I only hope I can return the favor. Can I be the maid of honor for the wedding? :)
