Felicita Park

The Tobins in Felicita Park, Escondido

When your friend comes to you with the cutest idea for a family shoot, there is no way that you say no. I mean this set of shirts kills me: The Original (mom/Kate) , The Remix (first born, Maizy) and The Encore (Sweet baby girl Cassie). And when you incorporate moms badass/drop dead gorgeous rocker girl style you get a winning set of images. The weather cooperated and cleared up, and we had the best time exploring felicita park and playing with the girls.

I love anytime I get to spend with you, Rob and your babies, but it's even better when it's time spent exploring. Maizy is so grown up and loved hunting for acorns and helping in anyway she could. And Cassie is such a Diva you can't help but get amazing shots of her running through Felicita Park's amazing oak groves. 

Kate, you know I love you to the moon and back, and I hope you love these teasers. Every year it gets better and better with these kids (and every year my skills improved too). I am so blessed to have you as not only my sweet friend, but as someone who has continued to entrust me with documenting your families journey.

The Medford Families 2016 Holiday and Maternity Session

So I'm trying something new. And it's mostly because I am just sooo in love with these pictures I couldn't share my normal teaser of just a few. So this time I'm going to do a whole blog post with my "teaser" images. And if you (and I) like this, I'm going to try and keep it up!

The Medfords are an amazing little family unit that I am lucky to call friends. This was my 3rd annual shoot with them, and I think it was probably the best! The recent years have been so fun too but this year was different. Because this year, Marlena was pregnant!  And when I found out we were doing the shoot at Felicita Park I was so excited.

This is now officially one of my favorite locations in North Count San Diego.  Plus there was the Renaissance Fair going on at the same time and who doesn't love seeing knights and wood nymphs out in their natural habitat. :)

Marlena, JD and LuLu, thank you from the bottom-of-my heart for trusting me for a third year-in-a-row, and for allowing me to document this glorious and fun afternoon that I had with you!  I can't wait for your sweet little guy to arrive  (and hopefully get some sweet pictures with him too).

Much Love,
