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!!!

Okay, wow! These are amazing. I love how I am 3,000 miles away from you but I already know without a shadow of a dount that you're the kind of person that being around you entices people to let out their real emotions and be themselves. The smiles, the laughter and the personality are just simply infectious. I want to come and shoot with you one day before I die :-)
