Esther and Phil are the kind of people that make you feel at home in a heartbeat…. quiet literally. With sunset nearing and the fast pace we were working throughout our SoCal Tour, we arrived to the Clerc’s home with only a small window of light to capture a full session. After quickly introducing ourselves, we jumped right in and began photographing this sweet family. Between their minimalistic modern decor, the views overlooking the desert landscape and a beautiful food display of local fruits and cheese, the atmosphere was a photographer’s dream. In addition, the way this family interacts with one another is so wholesome and that of genuine love. Esther’s humble and gentle approach to their son, Little Phil, shows through in every little moment and the way Phil looks at his family as if they’re the most treasured and loved people around is truly a beautiful thing to document.

We are so thankful for the creative and online community for connecting us with wonderful people from all around. Make sure to follow along Phil & Esther’s creative work along with their community account, New American Dreamers.
