Torrey Pines Family Session

The McMinn's Torrey Pines Family Session, La Jolla CA

Mcminn Family Session Torrey Pines La Jolla 2017-12.jpg

Can you believe that November is almost over!? Because I cannot. This session is my last family session I have booked this year and I loved it. The Mcminn's were such lovely people and we had such an amazing little walk together in Torrey Pines. It was awesome to see their kids genuinely love hanging out all together and I was just in awe of their sweet affection. 

So here's to the end of 2017 family session season! Jennifer, thank you so much for reaching out to me to do your photos and for trusting me! I hope you love these photos as much as I do! You all were so photogenic and just wonderful!



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! 



Shane and Shayna's Glowing Torrey Pines Maternity Session 2017

Torrey Pines is now officially one of my favorite photo spots in San Diego. I don't know why it has taken me so long to get here to do a session but this is going into my top spots. Shane and Shayna, thank you for being game to going on a little hike to do your session. You both did such an amazing job, were awesome listeners and always up to a challenge. And Shane, thank you for taking a break from studying for the Bar. 

I love how sweet and in love you are, and how excited you are for your little guy to arrive. I hope these photos end up a treasure for your families, for years to come. I am sad you'll be moving to Texas, but I am so excited to see where life takes you and your family. Austin is so lucky to be getting you both and San Diego will miss you!

Much Love,
