Gwen, Ed and Emerson — a sweet and bubbly toddler who likes digging for crabs and making funny faces — have much to celebrate this year. With an engagement and a new baby on the way, this beautiful, growing family faces their exciting future with the same love and joy that brought them together in the first place. And their approach to our fun photo shoot at the Santa Monica Pier was no different. This merry trio exuded joy even while running from the rising tide on a late winter afternoon. Here are some of my favorite moments.
