Now that I’m not ruining clients’ Christmas cards by blogging their sessions, it’s fun to look back at the very-busy month of November! This La Jolla family celebrated their baby’s first birthday with a beach session on Coronado. Their little one loved the sand and was even up for a little horseback riding on the shore. Adorable baby!! I hope I see them again soon!
After freezing my toes on the cold beach last night, I thought it was time for a throw-back to summer. This is one of my favorite sessions of July, just after a week of leftover June gloom. The weather cleared up beautifully that night, just in time for our Hotel del Coronado beach session with this Arkansas family.
Families are made in the heart, and here’s some proof. Five years ago, I photographed Gina and Omar’s wedding. Jasmine was just a little six-year-old then, and today she is celebrating her eleventh birthday with her sweet little sister Iris. I loved seeing Omar’s interactions with both of his daughters during this photo session, which was arranged by adoptive grandma “Grandmary” Mary. Jasmine’s best friend Elizabeth, Grandmary’s other granddaughter, is also here. This is family.
Happy birthday, Jasmine!
This tiny one-year-old birthday girl and her big sister both showed up to our session on Coronado dressed in adorable pink dresses, and they were the princesses of the sand dunes on that gorgeous evening!
This family was absolutely delightful. I heard ahead of time that they were concerned their little one-year-old would “run straight out into the water and get all wet and dirty.” Prophetic! But still okay! The evening was perfect for a hands-on toddler on a mission, and the dirtier he got, the more adorable and smiley he became. I’ll take it! Love these images and couldn’t wait to share them!
Just over a year ago, I got to witness this little guy making his entrance into the world! It was pretty great to see how he has grown and to photograph his family for his one-year session. The weather and tides cooperated amazingly – such a beautiful evening on Coronado!!
It was great to meet baby Kameron and his mom and dad at Balboa Park a few weeks ago. The plan was to play up the fun architecture of the area, which we did . . . but we got a little distracted by an island of flowers that made a beautiful backdrop for Kameron’s big boy sitting-up photos, just as the sun was setting. So pretty!
