San Diego Photographer | Family Portraits at La Jolla Cove

It’s wonderful to see a couple so in love. It is so important not to forget to nourish your relationship. Children can be stressful. They are such beautiful blessings, but it’s a new dynamic when a family of 2 grows into a family of 3. This pair must be doing something right. You can see the love and genuine connection in this couple’s eyes during their family shoot at La Jolla Cove.

Fight on with Gabriel | San Diego Child Photographer

I was contacted last October by Super Sam, an organization to help families who are impacted by childhood cancer. They asked me to photograph Gabriel and his family, who were staying at the Hotel del Coronado for a few days, going to the San Diego Zoo, and enjoying the beach. Gabriel was an enthusiastic little guy, energetic and seemingly-healthy, but his dad shared about his long battle with leukemia and that Gabriel’s options had been exhausted. Sadly, Gabriel passed away this month, just three years and one day after his diagnosis. His Facebook page, “Fight on with Gabriel,” celebrates his life. Although Gabriel is now in the arms of Jesus, his fight continues as his parents and friends join with so many other families affected by childhood cancer, working toward increased funding for research in this area. Of all the money spent on cancer research in the United States, only 4% is spent on childhood cancers.  I know Gabriel’s family and many others would appreciate our prayers and our consideration of non-profits like Super Sam, funding research for childhood cancer.

Christmas Card Round-Up 2017 | San Diego Photography

One of the most delightful parts of Christmastime for me is giving and receiving Christmas cards, and it is a special kind of wonderful to open a Christmas card and see familiar images included! This year, I received several cards from friends and family whom I photographed in 2017. I love to see the images my friends and clients love best from their sessions, and their Christmas cards always feature the favorites.

Here are the cards I received this year and the images that were used in making them! If you made a card from images from a session with Amy Gray Photography this year, would you post your card on Facebook? I’d LOVE to see!
