Ali’s San Diego Senior Portraits | Crystal Pier Pacific Beach

Beautiful Ali’s senior photos will be unlike most in her graduating class this year! She’s from Omaha, Nebraska, so beach portraits are especially unique and fun. I’m so glad she and her three adorable outfits found such a gorgeous day on the beach at Crystal Pier . . . beautful sky, low tide happiness, and sparkly light to make everything glow. Love, love, love!

Butlers on the Beach | Crystal Pier Photographer San Diego

It has become a fall tradition to get together with the Butler family, and this seventh year we met at Crystal Pier. Sarah was my daughter’s wonderful kindergarten teacher, and her two boys came along a few years after that. We always work our photography around a lively conversation about kids, school, current events, and more! This year the sailboat and beach ball made for a little friendly competition . . . perfect for getting the boys’ natural expressions

Engaged again! | Cardiff Seaside Beach Proposal Portraits San Diego

Quite possibly the sweetest thing ever! Matthew asked for Jayneann’s hand . . . again, since they’ve been married for years . . . during a family portrait session with their godkids. I first met this couple during their friend Lydia’s wedding, where Matt was officiating and Jayneann was the matron of honor and created the floral arrangements. I loved that they wanted to experience another fun beach session to celebrate their love for one another!

Twirling on the Beach

Turning Five on Coronado | San Diego Family Portrait Photography

We have a tradition for Ava’s birthday photo sessions! A giant balloon declares the age she has become, and usually Ava is a little concerned about the balloon and not too excited about getting close to it. This year, though, she was FIVE, and she was very brave about the balloon. Then Ava and her mom and dad (okay, and the photographer) had a blast zooming around the sandy beach and twirling on the shore. Looking forward to birthday #6 next fall!

A Shiny Beach Session | Hotel del Coronado Photographer

It has taken us a few tries to get a “shiny beach session” with the Bones(https://amygrayphotography.com/san-diego-child-photographer-extended-family-photography/)/Weeks(https://amygrayphotography.com/summer-weeks-in-san-diego/) family! Schedules, weather, sickness . . . we just haven’t been able to work it out until this month when everything came together. It was a fast-paced, moderately-crazy hour or so, and I just love these images. They capture this fleeting time before these five cousins meet the newest addition in a few months.
