San Diego Photographers | Coronado Photographer

The beach at the Hotel del Coronado never ceases to amaze me with its beauty, and this family showed up dressed perfectly for a photo session there. I love so many different combinations of colors on the beach, but pastels are definitely a favorite.

The Christmas tree was going up inside the hotel, and preparations for the ice skating rink were being made, but the temperatures were warm, the sun was up, the clouds were perfect, the shore was flat and clean, and reflection shots were the order of the day! This looks like a summer session, doesn’t it?

Beach Christmas Photos | San Diego Photographers

Usually I try to whittle down my blog posts to a reasonable number, but this family just made it too hard. I *loved* their Christmassy-festive session, and I feel so honored that they chose me to capture this very important time in their lives. Dad’s going to be gone for a long time, leaving behind his sweet wife, adorable daughter, and brand-new baby boy. These photos will be cherished in his absence, as he serves our country. I could only think that God honored his sacrifice . . . and theirs . . . with a beyond-beautiful sunset.

This young dad had the perfect idea for his daughter’s birthday gift . . . a beach photo session during their stay in San Diego. She arrived as beautiful as could be, and while we concentrated on getting beautiful birthday portraits, Dad got in on the action as well, and I loved the dad-and-daughter shots!

Beach Photography San Diego | Hotel del Coronado

When Kimber contacted me for a session, I knew her name sounded familiar! I searched my old emails, and there it was . . . her family had used our family’s babysitting agency, Sitterwise, several years ago! It was great to get to meet Kimber and her family in person after working with them years before, and I wondered if she had found me through Sitterwise. Nope! She just did an old-fashioned Google search for beach photography. It was fun to share the connection with her as we ran around beautiful Coronado beach and made some sweet memories for her family. It’s a small world!

San Diego Maternity Photographer | Crystal Pier Family Photography

If you follow my Instagram, you already know how I loved getting to photograph this little girl! She was sweet, rambunctious, and adorable, and although her crazy antics kept me completely ON MY TOES the entire session, her bright smiles lit up the beach that night! From careening around the shiny shore to jumping on top of a used-to-be-sandcastle, with two hands full of mud, she was filled with joy and curiosity – just like a toddler should be.

Extended Family Beach Portraits | Hotel del Coronado Photography

This family and I go way, way back! Another in my 2018 string of former students, Dianna was in my English class once upon a time, and Jackie was my co-worker at the school. The adults in this family are so genuine, sweet, and funny, and their love for their Lord shows in their words and actions. The children, from my experience with them on the beach, are growing up in the very same direction. A beautiful family, inside and out, and such a privilege to photograph!
