michele's san diego family photos

with a company name like ohana, it's pretty obvious that we love family, especially big families.
by the end of our first conversation with michelle we knew that we would love michele's family as if they were our own. one of the things she mentioned in her first call was that she wanted us to take photos of 18 of her family members in their chargers jerseys. right then i said to myself, this family is awesome, they have loads of fun together, AND they are HUGE fans of our san diego chargers... we are going to go together like PB and J. when we actually met them their awesome factor went right off the charts. everyone was so nice and so easy to get along with that we almost forgot we were there to work. it felt like we were just part of a sweet family reunion. a sweet family reunion of CHARGERS FANS!!!

did i say they are a fun family? i meant they are a SUPER FUN family.

in a family of chargers fans you might think it's hard to stand out. not this little guy. he put a huge smile on all of our faces when he took center stage and...

showed us his version of shawne merriman's lights-out dance.

every family has it's wisest elder. in michele's family all the kids call him grandalf. we call him awesome. no matter what you call him he's seriously one of the coolest grandpas of all time.

babies, bolts, battlestar galactica :)

i am so happy that we met you michele and all of your awesome family members. we loved hanging out for the afternoon and talking about how much we ALL can't wait for football to start again. hopefully we'll all have something to cheer about this year. GO CHARGERS!!!

angel, paul, and 12 blue luftballons in santa monica

we knew going into this session that angel and paul were super fun, smokin hot, and down for just about anything we could dream up.
dear diary, jackpot!
with a couple like this we had to find a place that could handle the kind of fun we were about to roll out. we hopped in the ohana-mobile and drove from san diego to santa monica to find just the right spot.
angel and paul, meet the santa monica pier.

dear ad wizards at hollister, angel and paul are available to model and are waiting by their phone.
ring, ring. who's there? destiny? i've been expecting your call.

if you think angel and paul are hot put your hands up

this is why so many people come to southern california. it's, as fergie says, glamorous.
this is also one of my favorite shots of the day that kim took.

another favorite that kim took... ON A BIKE!

hi, pushing daisies, we stole your color.

kim's better at pitching. i'll let her take it from here.
kimmy's got the spotlight!
wait for it.
oh snap!
audiences love pigeons.
holler back!

paul is sad. he can't smoke upside down.

angel and paul are doing:
a. the cha cha slide
b. the humpty dance
c. da butt

you spin me right round

angel straight up pwned that pier.

not to be outdone, paul followed up angel's hotness with a bit of his own.

the best part about angel and paul is that they balance their excessive hotness with an awesome sense of humor. we LOVE couples that can laugh at themselves, and couples that make us laugh. angel and paul are most definitely in that category.

lock it up :)

as seen on their teaser post, angel and paul went all the way (into the water).
thank you angel and paul for being absolutely down for anything. we could not think of a better day than the one we had with you.

playtime with angel and paul in santa monica

we are insanely busy this weekend, but i had to post up this teaser for the uber hot angel and paul's super rad session by the santa monica pier.

we LOVE when couples are willing to do anything we ask. even if it means jumping in the pacific fully clothed for a little sexytime in the surf. thank you angel and paul for trusting us and being the ultimate gamers.
there will be more shots posted soon. promise :)

btw, today is angel's birthday, so please join us in wishing her the happiest of birthdays! much love to you on your day angel!
