Large Family Session

Duong Family Session in Canyon Park, Costa Mesa

Doung Family Session 2017-2.jpg

Yesterday was a warm Indian summer day, and it was the perfect day to have a family session with the Duong's. This sweet family gifted this session to their parents for both their 75th birthday's and it couldn't have been sweeter. Their daughter Annie and I went to College together and when she called and asked if I would help do photos for her parents I was thrilled! 

 My Favorite part was when they brought out their parents wedding portrait for them to pose with, and they are just as stylish and handsome as they were on their wedding day. It was amazing to see how warm and loving they still were with each other, and a real honor that I was chosen to document this amazing family.

I hope you guys love these amazing pictures and I can't wait to share the rest with you!



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.
