The LaRocca Family


Oh how I just adore the family I’m blogging about today. I’m lucky enough to say I’ve been photographing the LaRocca family for 5 years now! I truly can’t believe how much the children have grown and changed since I first photographed them. For the longest time, Jenn talked about doing a spring or summer session.  She always scheduled the families Christmas photos and we never had that extra session done.  Well, I am so happy to say mission accomplished.  All thanks to their oldest daughter, Kalyn.  She insisted on a beach session.  Thanks Kalyn!!!!  Let’s check it off the list, right Jenn?

Let me start by introducing these gorgeous little girls, Kalyn and Mackenzie.


Kalyn is turning 8 this month!  Happy Birthday, Kalyn!!!! Kalyn loves to dance, shop with her Mommy, watch cooking shows and eat.  Jenn tells me she has an obsession with bacon.  Kalyn, I’m a bacon eater too!  yummy!

Mackenzie is 6, a free spirit who loves rainbows and flowers.  She enjoys dancing like her big sister, anything that has to do with art, and shopping with Mommy as well.

Aside from Danny being an awesome father, let’s just give him a round of applause for taking his two girls for mani and pedis for this shoot!  The hilarious story he told me started with Jenn saying ” Okay Danny, just tell the lady basic manicure and pedicure for kids.  File nails, paint and massage.”  Well, unfortunately,  Danny got a bill of almost $200 after those girls were through.  The women just kept saying “want this, it’s an extra $10”. haha after a few questions like that, Danny saying “sure!”, those two girls ended up with manicures and pedicures fit for princesses!!!  Next time, just say “No”, Danny.  Kudos to you for being a great sport.

But look at these girls.  They sure look like princesses to me!


But what is two beautiful children without their loving, hardworking and good looking parents.  Danny and Jenn have been married for 10 years.  Congratulations on 10 years of marriage!!! Can’t get to 10 years just winging it.  You two are a great example of being a team.

Aside from spending time with the family, they love to ride around the neighborhood on their golf cart at night together, go camping, and Jenn tells me that Danny is a pretty good sport when it comes to shopping with her. Danny also loves to golf. I hear he is pretty good!

Thank you Danny, Jenn, Kalyn and Mackenzie for another session.  I think this one has been my favorite.  Until next session, when I say that one is my favorite. 🙂

You all are a great family. I love how easy going you make everything.  Always a fun time.  Doesn’t ever feel like I am working when I am photographing all of you.  Thank you so much for that.  Who doesn’t enjoy an easy job?
