My husband,John, and Ben Gilliam have been friends since before they were born. REALLY! See, their dad's had been best friends since they were 14 years old, so naturally as they grew up and became family men, their children would hang out. Now, all these years later, they have families of their own and the kids will know each other and the friendship legacy will continue. I think that is a pretty special legacy to pass down.
I was honored to capture a family session for the freshly forming Gilliam family. These early years go by too quickly and since Ben has photographs documenting his whole life so far, it is important that his family has those memories too. So, his very charming and adorable wife, Crystal, sons Gage and Cash, and daddy headed outside their home in Ladera Ranch for an afternoon of photographs, conversation, and fun.
