Saleem Family Portraits, Santa Monica Pier, Los Angeles

Los-Angeles-Family-Photographer-01

It’s been almost 10 years since we photographed Heelah & Amer’s gorgeous San Francisco wedding. Two beautiful children and a kitty later, we flew out to Los Angeles to shoot on the Santa Monica Pier and capture this moment in their lives as parents and their blossoming expression of family.

How do I find the words that describe the incredible personalities that Heelah & Amer have raised in their 5 year old daughter and 9 month old son? Firstly, the bond between these two siblings is wonderful to behold. Imaan is a fierce protector over her baby brother, constantly showering him with hugs and kisses. It’s not surprising though, baby Armaan makes you completely fall head over heels in love with his chubby cheeks, happy eyes and giant smiles. However, it’s only his big sister who can butter up his pure, full out, bursting from the gut, belly laugh. To be witness is pure joy.

Heelah & Amer, from the first time we met you, it was clear there was something special about you two. You truly bring out the best in those around you. It has been a complete honour to document the way you play, love and hold your children. Thank you so much for trusting us with these moments.
