Arcadia Arboretum Family Portraits
The Maljians

Allow me to introduce you to the Maljians: Jen + Rafi + Madison + Micah!

Introductions? What am I talking about?! Chances are, you already know this family.

The Maljians have lots (and lots) of friends and family who love them.

We first met Jen + Rafi at Pasadena First Church of the Nazarene (Paz Naz).  I couldn’t even tell you how long the Lundgrens have known the Maljians…but its been a long time.

Over a decade, probably more than two.

Rafi’s family was also Daniel’s introduction to Armenian cuisine.  Tell your Mom thanks for the unforgettable baklava, Rafi!

This month marks 10 years of marriage for Jen + Rafi.

Can we talk about their chemistry?

These two are definitely best friends in love..

Yup, Jen + Rafi are a solid parenting team.

I’m talking the Lakers of parenting (do you like how I tied in the Lakers, Rafi?)

But really, these kids look easy to love.

Micah kept us laughing throughout the photoshoot. He’s got such a hilarious sense of humor!

You just watch…in 12 years, this is Monrovia High School’s ASB President.

After a long morning of modeling at the LA Arboretum in Arcadia, Maddie was ready for her beauty sleep.

Smart girl.

Jen + Rafi, your family is an image of the kind of family we hope to have for ourselves someday. Thanks for being awesome.

Wow. This photo shoot is gorgeous. How fun to see pics of Rafi’s family! Megan + Daniel, just wanted to let you know that when I’m having a long or stressful day, your blog is where I go to treat myself. A few minutes reading your posts and looking at your photography and I am newly inspired and in love with life. Makes me excited to live in this world. Thank you.
