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.

Colton | San Diego Family Photographer

Things are looking pretty different for Colton since the last time I photographed him.⠀

Last year, Colton and his parents and three siblings met up with my sister and me just a few weeks into Colton’s treatment for a rare form of leukemia. He was absolutely miserable, clinging to his mama and crying (or moaning ) throughout our session . . . but we were determined to get some images because, honestly, no one was really sure if the treatment would work. Times like that make photography a serious – and heartbreaking – endeavor.⠀

Fast-forward to this year’s session and Colton’s smiling face – and smiling eyes. Could there be anything more precious?⠀

Colton's Cancer Battle | Leukemia

Colton’s family has been through so much this year: seemingly endless chemotherapy, multiple extended and unplanned hospital stays, so many spinal taps and injections and oral medications . . . the list goes on. But right now, Colton is in remission, and they are marching through the maintenance phase (still no picnic!!) of his treatment with HOPE.⠀

I know they would love your prayers for Colton and for their family.

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!
