Evanna, Atalia, and Erleen’s Senior Session on Coronado

Evanna, Atalia, and Erleen have been friends since elementary school, and their senior session on Coronado was a celebration involving all three families! We captured three outfits per senior, grabbed some shots with moms and dads, got our toes wet on the shore while enjoying the sunset, and ended the session with some colorful shots by the surfboards. These sweet and beautiful girls are headed to SDSU and UC Santa Barbara, and their parents have reason to be very proud. Congrats to all!

Sisters & Senior Portraits at the Del | San Diego Beach Photoraphy

Ashlyn is graduating from high school this year, and her whole family jumped in for a combination senior portraits/family session. If you’ve ever wondered if it’s okay to do both types of sessions at once . . . YES! It is! I love capturing the interactions between family members, along with getting lots of shots (even different outfits!) of the featured senior. When we’re launching our 18-year-olds into life, the whole family deserves to be celebrated!

East County Pre-Deployment Photos | San Diego Photographer

Linett’s family is getting ready for her husband’s upcoming deployment, and they wanted to capture the life they’ve built together in the last few years in San Diego. They’ve recently welcomed a new baby girl to their beautiful home overlooking the city, where they care for their two sweet pups, four cats, and a couple of chickens. Theirs is a home brimming with life and love—the perfect place to start their family.

Spring Break & Anniversary Portraits at the Del | San Diego Family Photography

Kelly’s family came to San Diego on vacation, celebrating a tenth anniversary for Mom and Dad and spring break for the boys! These sports-loving boys are into basketball, baseball, and football. The oldest enjoys video games and the little one watches Ninja Turtles and Battle Bots. We had a gorgeous sunny day to work with, and we made the most of it!

Servos | San Diego City Street Company Headshots

I can think of zero places where I’d rather take headshots than San Diego’s city streets! I love the colorful backgrounds, the glimmering lights, and the energy that exudes from these urban images. For companies enjoying offsite meetings in San Diego, using the streets around their hotel accommodations makes a lot of sense, and everybody looks awesome! Servos asked for a quick round of headshots and some group shots for their 30+ person staff. They were a fun bunch of people to work with, especially when I was standing on a ladder in the middle of the street!

MilkStork | San Diego Offsite business Headshots

I’ve been having fun with headshots during the not-so-beachy season this year, and when MilkStork called me for photos during their offsite meetings at the Hotel Indigo. They wanted natural-looking shots that captured the personalities of the amazing people who work for their company, which provides breastmilk delivery for traveling professional moms who are nursing. I love this concept, and it was also fun chatting about our family business Sitterwise, which also serves professional mamas on the go.

Colton on Coronado | San Diego Teen beach Portraits

I met Colton’s mom and dad last year when they were staying with their two younger children at the Del on vacation. Making portraits of those two was an adventure! It was a very bright, windy day, and the beach was experiencing what I call a “seaweed event,” where, try as they might, even the industrious beach cleaners at the Del couldn’t keep up with all the kelp! It was a lot, but the photos still turned out well (thank you, Photoshop), and I was thrilled to hear they were coming back to Coronado with their oldest child, Colton! Colton is a football player at his high school in Texas, and he made my job easy! It was a gorgeous evening with golden light and shiny shores. Hoping for weather just like this when they all come back for family photos!

Michelle & Robert Celebrate 27 Years | San Diego Beach Photography

Michelle and Robert traveled to San Diego from New Mexico to celebrate their 27th anniversary this year, and Michelle made a special point to mark the occasion with the first professional portrait session they’ve had in over 25 years. She reached out at the first of the year, when New Year’s resolutions are fresh, and told me about her vision for a dreamy sunset session at Crystal Pier during their March trip. Michelle’s been vacationing here since she was a child, and Pacific Beach is a special favorite. This couple has a whole decade’s worth of memories of yearly trips to PB, so it really was the perfect location for their session (not to mention that it’s one of my TOP beach spots—because look at that light!!). I loved her vision right away, and I love how these images turned out.

Extended Family Lakeside Photography | San Diego Photographer

It was a beautifully sunny evening on an East County mountaintop when Marsha and Jeff’s extended family came together for portraits. We got all the groupings in those minutes before sunset, from grandchild individuals to sibling photos and a special image of “the original five”—just Marsha and Jeff and their three daughters. I loved seeing how all the kids love their cousins, their grandparents, and the play structures and pups that are part and parcel of a good day spent at Papi and Shasha’s house.

Extended Family Portraits for San Diego locals

Mikki’s extended family is all local to San Diego, but even then it can be hard to round everyone up! We dodged some rainy days and met up in Pacific Beach on a beautiful evening with soft, even lighting that accentuated the closeness of this family. Oh, how these cousins love each other!

Hotel del Coronado Surprise Proposal | Rubin Pops the Question

Rubin had his pre-Valentine’s Day proposal planned for quite a while, and I loved getting to be in on the surprise. For this session, my son Steven second-shot for me and got some bonus angles, along with helping to arrange the candles and rose petals. It was fun having him along and watching him grow as a photographer. Scroll down and see how we pivoted this surprise proposal into a gorgeous sunset engagement session. Congratulations to the happy couple!!
