The Grisanti Family, Marina del Rey Family Portrait Photographer

Last week, I had the true pleasure of meeting up with the Grisanti family who traveled from all over the country in order to enjoy a great vacation here in Southern California and to have some updated family portraits done. We went to Burton W. Chace Park in Marina del Rey, which actually provided some awesome light and backgrounds. I had never been to Marina del Rey, and neither had the Grisanti family, so we sort of scored.  
Chris, Suzan, Meyer (9 mo) and Elia (3 years) traveled from San Francisco. Donna & Russell (Chris & Stephen's parents) traveled from Tuscon, and Stephen aka Uncle Stephen traveled all the way from New York City.  
*Thank you so much to each of you for giving me the opportunity to document your beautiful family. I hope you enjoyed the remainder of your vacation. Peace and Blessings, Tira J.
Isn't Elia a little dream? And I especially love her dress! My favorite color! Wondering if Mom planned that.
Chris, Suzan, Elia and Meyer together. Mr. Meyer was hilarious, he was all smiles, all the time.
We had a little "incident" between Chris & Elia and Chris' lip got injured. I think Elia was trying to make the "ouchy" better.
At all of my portrait sessions, I love to ask my clients tons of questions in order to get to know them better. And I just love to ask couples how long they have been married and how they met. Suzan and Chris will be celebrating their 10 year wedding anniversary this year. Happy Anniversary! I love this image!
Meet Donna and Russell. They have been married 39 years! That wasn't a typo my friends! They are still so in love and we had some entertainment in the park, so they danced a little.
One of my family favorites.
Stephen is from New York, and he was so great to have along at the session. Not only as a family member, but he worked really hard in order to get the kiddos to smile for me. Thanks Stephen!  
I love this one of Meyer and Uncle Stephen having loads of fun.
Grandpa and Meyer
Another one of my favorites of Grandma and Elia.
Meyer was all smiles and such a happy little guy!
I saved the best for last! This is my absolute favorite from the entire session.
