During our most recent trip to Malta, we were able to spend quite a bit of quality time with our good friends Beatrix and Marcus, and their little daughter Nevada. They are currently expecting their second child, and so they asked if I would capture this season of their life before having their second child. We had an impromptu photo shoot in a local park near their house in Gzira, and below are some of my favorite shots. It took quite a bit of clowning around to get Nevada to sit still, pose, and smile, but one wouldn’t expect anything less from a bubbly two year old.  All that matters is that we got her to smile!

We Family Photo Shoot | Irvine, CA

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity of doing a photo shoot for some good friends and co-workers Mitch and Woo, and their adorable sons Micah and Josiah. They wanted some photos of their family to send out as Christmas cards and it sure was fun to do the shoot with them! Here are some of my favorites, taken at Turtle Rock Park in Irvine.

Micah, the oldest, loved both being in front of the camera.

Josiah, on the other hand, was a little bit more suspicious of the whole situation.

Miller Family Photo Shoot | Laguna Beach, CA

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to do a photo shoot for some good friends of mine and Nathalie’s: David, Joanna, and their adorable son Donavon. The Millers are moving to New Zealand for a while and so it was a great time to capture some family shots of the three of them before they cross to the other side of the world! Here are some of my favorites, taken at Crescent Bay in Laguna Beach. To the Millers we wish a Bon Voyage to Kiwi Land!

Ewan William Atkins | Malta Travel Photographer

My wife and I went back to Malta this last May for our second wedding reception. It was great to celebrate our marriage with her extended family, and some of her closest friends from England and Norway, who made the trip down to be with us for a week. It was precious for her to have some quality time with them, and for me to meet people I had long heard about. We also got to meet little Ewan William Atkins, pictured below, one of the gentlest, sweetest, kindest little boy we’ve ever met. Naturally, I had to catch a few precious moments with little Ewan, and I share some of my favorites below. We hope to be able to spend more time with the Atkins family very soon!

Pond Family Photo Shoot | Seal Beach, CA

A few months ago, my Uncle Mark, Aunt Kirsten and cousin Haley were in Southern California for a while, and I took the opportunity to spend some time with them and shoot some family portraits for them. Mark, Kirsten and Haley live up near Seattle, WA, so I don’t get to see them as often as I wish to. We met in Seal Beach and spend some time together at the beach, before enjoying a home-cooked meal. The fun we had added to the shoot, and I just love how some of the photos brought out the distinctive character of all three of them. I am sharing some of my absolute favorites. I hope you enjoy going through them.

Haley, who is so adventurous, took quite a liking to my camera and by the end of the night was taking photos of the harbor herself.

I loved this photo of Haley.

It was great to spend some time with Mark, Kirsten and Haley especially as it had been a few years since I had last seen them.
