More Pacific Palisades Family Portraits

I have been photographing The O’Donnell Family since their first daughter was born. Now there are five kids! Its fun to see my images all around their house. (This includes a film shot I took at their wedding and then painted by hand with Marshall’s Oils! Its something I used to do a lot in my film days…)

Here are a a few portraits from the past:

Aren’t they a stunning family? Here are the kids from oldest to youngest…






The whole family, including Kimmy, the dog.

In 2006, I photographed Chris’ brother, John’s, cool line of casualwear called Johnnie O. After the family shoot, the kids threw some Johnnie O gear on to play football.

I love the cheerleaders with their little Johnnie O hats!!
