This family of GIRL cousins has been such a joy! They come with their parents and grandparents each year to the Hotel del Coronado, and each year I get to photograph them on the beach there! This year was our fifth year of photos, so I thought it would be fun to do a “through the years” post!
This afternoon session (about two hours before sunset) shows off the sunshiny magic of August AND the sunshine personalities in this little family.
We took a few in the garden, too, which has beautiful light any time of day!
Bev was one of my very first clients and a loyal one! She has stuck with me for many years, and I appreciate that so much. She now she has 5 grandkids under 4, and one on the way! It has been so wonderful meeting the new grandchildren and watching the new generation of this family grow.
I’ve photographed this local family before but this year it was a treat to meet the whole crew! We headed to Coronado Island for a portrait session with the entire extended family and we all had a great time capturing memories. I especially love the photos of the kids jumping and playing in the surf.
These Texans had the right idea when they decided to rent a house in La Jolla for a week at the beach. It must have been hard to coordinate everyone’s schedules, and I commend them for making family time a priority!
Once upon a time, these two lovebirds were in my eighth grade English class. Fast forward through Tom Sawyer, the Diary of Anne Frank, learning that “A LOT” is two words, and a whole lot more living, and we met again on the beach in Coronado for a family session with their three beautiful daughters. What a joy to photograph my former students and have a chance to catch up.
Well, I just loved this session. Immaculate styling, beautiful hair and make-up (by Jellis Faces), good kids who smiled, and a gorgeous sunset to finish off the evening! Everin Pezdek second-shot for me, and I was so grateful to have her there! Between the two of us, this was a huge session that was hard to whittle down to favorites, so here goes . . . (Be sure to check out the very last one, of the grandmother of this bunch in her amazing dress, twirling on the beach in the flaming sunset. #lifegoals)
