Beautiful weather and happy smiles for this local family on Coronado. I loved the parent-child interactions so much!
The whole gang came out for this extended family photo session on Coronado Beach. Their grandparents have been blessed by 5 beautiful grandchildren. All the kiddos had a blast running on the beach and playing on the waves. As always it was a pleasure to get to spend time with their family and capture these beautiful moments.
Love getting to meet this sweet family from the Midwest for a session on Coronado during the family vacation. They had just been up to Legoland and the kids couldn’t stop talking about how much fun they had! Thank you so much for letting me capture your families vacation memories in San Diego!
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.
I had a great time photographing three generations during this lovely family session on Pacific Beach. The light filtering through the pier was dazzling- but nothing was as gorgeous as these two beautiful cousins who stole the show.
This family loved their black and white photos! While most of my clients are all about the color, it was fun to see so many black and white favorites in this mama’s gallery.
This fun family of girl-cousins had a great time on the beach back in November, when I photographed them to commemorate their grandparents’ 50th anniversary.
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.
Flashing back to some of my pre-holiday sessions that I’ve saved so-as not to ruin the Christmas cards! This late-afternoon, not-quite-sunset session was blessed with blue skies, a few puffy clouds, and two precious little princesses!
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!
