Meet the Barkers! This is the fun loving family that won my 2012 Family Contest! After shooting their wedding a few months back I knew that this family session was going to be a fun one! This session was especially important to them because its their first family portraits as “official” Barkers! It meant so much to be able to capture this beautiful time of their lives! Working with three males was pretty intimidating because I know how much they LOVE taking photos (can you sense the sarcasm)! But I try my hardest to make it as painless as possible and these boys & parents rocked it out! I had so much fun shooting this good looking familia!!!
The boys tried to tell me that they werent ticklish... so their parents had to prove them wrong! Shoot who they tryin to fool!
Such well behaved boys!
They clearly get it from their parents!!!
They were so thrilled to be able to finally goof off!
I'M JANELLE MARINA
Wife, Mama Shark, + Photographer.
Most days, you'll find me in mismatched socks and a top knot, working behind my computer with a smile on my face, listening to Zac Brown Band and R&B
--or, dancing in the kitchen with my 3 littles and hunka husband, seeing who could come up with the coolest dance moves. I'm a wedding photographer, West Elm lover, aspiring advocate for our buddies with special needs, and a Certified Dreamer since 1986. We live in a cozy city in Southern California and are always up for a good adventure. I enjoy telling stories with my camera, grubbing on spicy food, and solving the latest Dateline case.
