This sweet family from Denver absolutely made my day. Their oldest daughter was ALL about the photo session and was quite the little model – and even little sister did a fantastic job! The best part was the end, when big sister asked me if I could come back to their “San Diego house” (aka hotel) and her mom asked if I babysat, by any chance? Yes, as a matter of fact I do . . . www.hotelchildcare.com :).
I have a very vivid memory of my grandmother from my childhood. We were barbecuing at the beach one day, and my hot dog slipped into the sand. She scooped it up, brushed off the sand, and announced, “God made dirt, and dirt don’t hurt!” That was the crunchiest hot dog ever, but I was none the worse for the experience. This little guy was all about the sand . . . and the seaweed. “This stuff’s even better than my lion!”
When I first met these lovely young ladies and learned that we were waiting for a few others of their party, my honest-to-goodness question was, “Are they as good looking as the rest of this family?” What a pleasure to capture this Indiana family during their Thanksgiving vacation here in San Diego. It was a beautiful, sunny day, but the pier was covered in fog, which made for some misty, ethereal images. I loved this session!
