Rachel and her husband celebrated their 15th anniversary with a trip to San Diego, complete with a photoshoot on the beach. Here’s her story of their photography experience:
Q. Did you have a good time on your vacation? What was the story of your trip?
A. San Diego is our favorite getaway city! Our kids love the beach, and my husband I enjoy a chance to unplug and enjoy the southern California weather.
Q. Were you celebrating anything special? Where were you staying? What attractions did you see while here? Any favorites for your family?
A. “The Del” is of course a paradise spot for tourists like us to the area. This particular trip we were celebrating our 15 year anniversary. As in all marriages, it has been a journey, and we’re extremely blessed to have made it this far. Our story has been enhanced by the additions of our three beautiful children along the way, and we could not be more happy to be able to celebrate this milestone anniversary in our favorite vacay spot!
Q. What prompted you to book a photo session? Were you celebrating anything special?
A. Pictures are a treasure to our family, and this was just a chance to capture our 15 year anniversary together on the beach!
Q. What concerns did you face going into your session? (Kids behaving, clothing choices, etc.)
A. Of course, when traveling with kids, it’s always an adventure. After a day of travel from Texas, my biggest fear was they would be too tired (or grumpy) for the photos; but, it all turned out great. Our photo session was the only thing we had officially planned for our trip, so after they were wrapped up, we just got to relax and enjoy the beach.
Q. What is a favorite memory you have of your photo session?
A. Just being together with our family.
Q. Describe a favorite image from your session? Why is it your favorite?
A. I love the shot with us and the “15 years later” sign with the silhouette of the hotel in the background.
Q. What did you do (or do you plan to do) with your images? Album, canvas, wall display, holiday cards, etc?
A. We’re looking forward to hanging a canvas from the shoot in our home.
Parting words from Rachel: God is awesome, and we would have/be/and love nothing without the love of the Father!
