It's been a year since I last photographed Erika, George, and their two awesomely fun kids, Olivia and Parker. A little older now, Olivia and Parker's personalities and sense of humor continue to grow and shine, especially in front of the camera. Their little faces lit up every time I mentioned Scooby Doo or tacos, two of their favorite things right now, and spolier alert: I got them to show me some of their dance moves!

Erika envisioned a clean backdrop at an iconic San Diego location for their family portraits, so the Organ Pavilion at Balboa Park perfectly fit the bill.

A high five in the air, take one: fail. But wait for it...

A high five in the air, take two: success!

Parker and Olivia had zero qualms about striking poses for me, especially when it involved fashionable accessories!

As if these two silly kids could not get any cuter and funner, their Christmas outfits turned them into dancing elves!

Erika and George, thank you for asking me to document your beautiful family year after year. I can't get enough of Olivia and Parker's unexpected reactions and poses. Finally, Erika, thank you for believing in me from day one, when I was still a New Yorker and had no idea I would eventually be a full time photographer :) xo, Evelyn
