Beach Family Session

The Marley Family Session at the Torrey Pines Reserve


It's Saturday and I am back in the swing of things with this bright and light family session. It was such a fun morning with this crew at the Torrey Pines State Reserve! The Marley family is so sweet and fun and this session was beautiful. Mom ,Lauren, was brave enough to agree to an early morning meet up time. And although it was early morning, her sweet girls had boundless energy! They ran pretty much the whole time we were on the trail, and Natalie (the eldest) made sure to mark the way with arrows so we wouldn't get lost, Penelope led the pack and Autumn (the youngest) loved looking for mermaids!

These precious girls wore dresses that were a family heirloom, held on to by grandma and still so pretty. Lots of laughs and giggles make for such a fun session, and you can see the pure joy and happiness on everyone's faces. . Family session season is upon us and I couldn't be more grateful for such an amazing family session. And a bonus to this family session is that I was able to donate 15% of the fee to Red Cross!

Anyways, Lauren and Jason, I hope you love these sneak peaks and I cannot wait to share all the rest! 



South Ponto Beach Family/Birthday Session 2017

I had the most fun at yesterday, combining work with fun. My old college roomie Laura and I reconnected a few months ago and when she asked me to do a photo-session for her mom, Karen's birthday I was so honored and excited! Laura and I met in college and back then, I was so lucky to meet and connect with her sweet mom and brothers and sisters back then. (like 12+ years ago)

So for me, not only was it a super great family session but it was an amazing opportunity to reconnect with the whole family. All the kids were so amazing and I know it took everyone a minute to wake up, but once they did, wow! Such an amazing session, and I hope we don't have to wait another 10 years to catch up.  Enjoy this sneak peak guys, and I can't wait to show you the rest. :)



South Ponto Carlsbad Family Session - The Dodson's

Today was such a beautiful bright sunny day, and I got to start it in the best way,  a family session with the Dodson's. I feel so incredibly blessed that Len (the patriarch of the family) lost a bet and was fortuitously put in charge of finding and arranging this years family picture.

This spring has been so incredibly green and I love the bright colors of the flowers at South Ponto.  On top of the beautiful setting, the willingness of the whole family to go along with everything I was throwing their way was above and beyond what I expected. It was so bright that everyone was squinting away, but not one person complained about it. :)

Dear Dodson family, I hope you had a fantastic brunch this morning and got to spend some quality family time together. I had a hard time (per usual) just picking 10-15 images to share for your sneak peak, so I hope you enjoy all the extra sweet shots I shared below.
