Camden on Camera | Hotel del Coronado Beach Photos

I really looked forward to photographing Camden and his parents and grandparents last month! It has been my honor to know his mommy Dara since she was only 13 years old, in my class in junior high. Since then, Dara was in my wedding photos (a candlelighter) and my daughter (her flower girl) was in hers, sporting a full cast on her arm from an unfortunate incident on the jungle gym at school. Dara and Josh moved to his hometown in Minnesota a few years ago, but when they came back for a baby shower a few years ago, I got to take Dara’s maternity photos in La Jolla. When she let me know they were bringing Camden out to San Diego to visit his grandparents and meet his San Diego fan-club, I was so excited to see him for the first time and photograph their sweet family. A lot of my favorite moments of our time together were about Dara’s dad. He’s really taking to this grandpa job, and I loved watching him play with Camden! Soo much joy!!

Exactly How I Want to Remember This Age | Coronado Beach Portraits

Family photos at the beach on Coronado served two purposes for the Brumsey family. Laura said, “We actually came to the area for the first time last year, and we fell in love with San Diego and its perfect weather. It was an easy decision to come back again. We spent our time checking out the beaches and playgrounds, and doing the typical tourist rounds of the zoo, the aquarium, and Balboa Park. It was a welcome break from the first cold snap of the year on the east coast!”

“I’m a little embarrassed to admit it, but when our daughter’s new school asked for a picture of the three of us to display in her classroom, I realized that I didn’t have many recent photos with all of us! We took a lot when my daughter was a baby, and had one special session with our elderly dog just before she passed – but I wanted something recent and happy to hang up in our new house.”

Laura said that, as far as concerns going into her session, she “wondered what mood my three-year-old would be in! She is always moving, and can sense when a camera is pointed at her and stop smiling in a split second.” In spite of her mama’s worries, we had no trouble keeping her happy, catching some great shots of her on the move!

Once of Laura’s favorite memories was “watching our little girl racing around in the surf. She just loves to run and she was so genuinely happy to be in a pretty dress, splashing in the water.”

“It’s hard to pick just one favorite image, but there are several where our daughter has her arms outstretched as she splashes in the water, and the joy on her face is just so transparent. It’s exactly how I want to remember this age.”

Laura said, “We will primarily display these images in our home. They went on holiday cards, framed gifts for the grandparents, etc. Our primary reason for getting them done was to have some keepsakes for our home.”

Sunny Shores for the Sundermeyer Family | San Diego Family Photographer

Before I even met Seana, I knew we had a lot in common, and I felt like I had made a new friend after our session. A military family relatively new to San Diego, the Sundermeyers were excited to capture their teens enjoying the beach. Here’s how Seana described her session:

“As a mom, worries of blowing hair, clothes panning out, and everyone enjoying themselves consumed my mind. However, these concerns just melted away at our arrival with the joy that came through in putting together a creative photoshoot! With two teenagers, it is fun to see their personalities just shine. I am loving this season with them and I am so glad we were able to capture it all in this session!”

“Being able to capture this time together in the beautiful area of San Diego was something I really wanted to do before my daughter leaves for college this next fall. I will never forget our gorgeous session on the water…what a stunning and breath-taking sunset! What a privilege to have these images saved in my heart…and now in print!”

There really are so many favorites….but I think the two favorites I have are the one of my husband Troy and I with my eyes closed and he is leaning into me with the gorgeous Pacific behind us. This particular one seems to capture our relationship well — twenty years of a loving journey together! The other favorite I have is of both Kaitlyn and Tyler sitting next to each on the rocks (almost a heart-shaped rock in the background) with the beautiful light sprinkling on them. They look natural…and it truly is a precious image that I love!

“I have several plans for these beautiful pictures! I will be updating my wall with several of the family photos as well as new school pictures for my two home-school kiddos! Grandparents are anxiously awaiting some new pictures!  I am also looking forward to creating some senior prints for Miss Kaitlyn this spring for her high school graduation.”

Red Wagon Christmas Photos on Coronado | San Diego Photographer

When Kerrie contacted me for Christmas photos, she knew just what she had in mind — her two little boys frolicking on the beach with red wagon and tree — and that’s just what we were able to accomplish, thanks to beautiful weather, happy boys, and that gorgeous flat shoreline on Coronado. Here are some of my favorites from her session:

Kerrie said, “There are so many favorites, how do I pick just one? I love the ones of my toddler that capture the essence and stage my son is in…I can almost see my son walking in a few of the pictures. There are also a some photos of my older son that really capture his love for nature and adventure. For me, photography is a way to stop time for a moment, and is worth every penny!”

Kerrie is creating ornaments and albums and framing 4×6 images for the grandparents and me for Christmas. Eventually, I will print some larger canvases and add to their family wall collage.

Merry Christmas from the Gray Family

This year, I took my kids (Lissa, 15, and Steven, 10) down to Coronado and photographed them looking Christmassy on the shore. The silhouette tree shot was my vision for the session, but there turned out to be lots of photos I really loved, so that shot had to share Christmas card real-estate with several others. Scroll all the way to the bottom for the finished card. MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and yours!!
