Collins Family

Point Loma Nazarene University - San Diego, CA

In my estimation and short experience, family portrait shoots take just as much energy and creativity as any other. You gotta be on your toes, quick thinking, and very fast so you can run after the kids! I first met Hamilton at our church at Ironman. Then at the Men's retreat this fall, Hamilton asked me if I could take his family portraits... It was definitely a fun experience and quite different from the weddings and events I normally shoot. Thankfully I had my Fiancee Vaness with me for moral support as well as Jasmine to come and shoot accompanied with Husband and expert reflector holder Adam.

I definitely had a lot of fun and having a sweet family and the cutest kids makes it a lot easier. Thanks Hamilton, Shannon, lil Hamilton, and Ayla! Enjoy!

Ayla!! Whata Cutie!! Definitely.

I told ya you have to be quick... She was a runner!

Ayla burying her face thinkin - "Aw man, mom and dad!!"

Lil' Hamilton decided to go 'Matrix' on me and sport this death defying jump over the stairs. Now he was definitely a runner (and jumper)..

If that doesn’t say daddy’s little girl, then I don’t know what does!

All the big smiles come out during playtime!

Thank you so much to the Collins family for having me (and my whole crew!) out with you… Hope you had fun!

I think you did a really good job capturing the emotion and characters of each person. Great job Galang!
