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!

Pacific Terrace Hotel Photography | San Diego Photographer

I court disaster a LOT, taking expensive camera gear and priceless clients into the churning waves in order to get the reflection shots I adore. Most of the time it works out fine, but this time . . . not so much! This session ended abruptly when a rogue wave took out one of my clients (and her iPhone 😳) and drenched us all – along with pretty much everyone else on the beach that day! Fortunately, it was close to sunset, my gear survived, we got some great images before the wave craziness, and my clients were great, gracious people. Check out this beautiful vacationing family, full of good looks and personality!

Adult Kids Need Family Sessions Too!

Don’t wait around for the grandkids to arrive and skip a whole season of life. Those “empty nester” years are special, and a family session when everybody’s around can be pretty therapeutic for mom and dad. This family rounded up their (very accomplished) grown kids and we had a great time on Coronado beach and made some memories.
