Check out these graceful dancers and their expressive little brother on the beach at the Hotel Del. Gorgeous sky that night!
Caleb and Emily commented during their most recent photography session at the Hotel del Coronado that we have done photos there when each of their children was a baby. Their brand-new little boy did a great job of bearing with the breezy weather, and the girls even let me braid their hair when it became obvious that wearing it down was not going to work with the wind. I loved catching their spinning and ballerina moves on the glassy shore! We all pushed through the weather obstacles, and I’m excited about this latest batch of beach photos for a very special family.
Oh, this couple. When a guy calls you up and says, “My girlfriend and I are getting engaged, and I want you to photograph it,” you know that young lady has picked a winner! So much care and planning went into this proposal, and Kristen was absolutely overjoyed to say a big “YES!” I loved that way the tide and sky behaved for this special pair, with mirrored puffy clouds galore. 😍
Photography in San Diego doesn’t usually start at 8:30am, but we don’t usually get rained out in San Diego, either! This family from Maryland needed to head home, so we scheduled our Hotel del Coronado session for the next morning, just as (I hoped) the fog would burn off. Natural light photography can be a little treacherous, with the sun threatening to peek out at any moment and leave us without the pretty filtered light that the clouds bring! In the end, the sun behaved, and I love the bright blue sky and puffy clouds in this session. I also love the way this brother and sister pair loved each other. So cute!!
