Families

The days fly by when kids are young, and before you know it, you’re looking back. Family portraits capture more than just the looks of the family in a certain place and time, but also the emotions and relationships between family members. Heirloom-quality family portraits are the treasured more as time goes by.

Business Trip Turned San Diego Vacation with Photography

My clients Ruhee and Khaliq turned a routine business trip into a fun family vacation, complete with lifelong memories for all of them. Here’s how Ruhee remembers their session:

Khaliq had a conference to attend in San Deigo, and we have never been, so we decided to make a trip out of it! Being six months pregnant with our second child, we wanted to take our son on a trip before his brother or sister arrives. We stayed near the convention center where Khaliq’s conference was. He attended a few events at his conference, and we also checked out the great attractions, including Legoland, Sea World, the Zoo. We got beautiful weather and were so happy to enjoy the California sun, especially because it snowed at home in Canada before we left.

Q: WHAT PROMPTED YOU TO BOOK A PHOTO SESSION?

A: It was going to be our son’s first time on the beach. Khaliq and I both love the beach and warm weather, so we thought we should capture some maternity and family photos in one of our favorite settings.

Q: WHAT CONCERNS DID YOU FACE GOING INTO YOUR SESSION?

A:  My son cooperating, my hair cooperating, my husband being able to keep his eyes open!

Q: WHAT IS A FAVORITE MEMORY YOU HAVE OF YOUR PHOTO SESSION?

A:  My son Jaleel being so excited to go in the water, even though it was so cold!

Q: DESCRIBE A FAVORITE IMAGE FROM YOUR SESSION? WHY IS IT YOUR FAVORITE?

A:  Jaleel playing with the sand bucket and shovel – something he loves to do, and now I have a beautiful picture of it on a real beach. Also the shot of Jaleel kissing my belly – because I am so excited for him to have a little sibling and can’t wait to see their bond once baby is here.

Family Portraits at Scripps Pier, La Jolla

Photographers in San Diego are destined to meet a friend when they show up for a session at Scripps Pier! It is like a photography Mecca, calling us because of the leading lines and potential for amazing sunset light!

This was my second time to photograph the Jimenez family, and four-and-a-half years had passed between our sessions, since this family lives out of state. Here’s a photo from our 2014 session:

Well, they added a family member and needed updated family portraits including their newest little one. After viewing her gallery, Anna remarked that her favorite memories of the session were her boys making memories together. The family silhouette image was a favorite with her, and she plans to use the images for a canvas for a wall in her home, as well as holiday cards. She said she’s even planning to come back to San Diego for her boys’ senior photos one day! I will be honored to take them!

Caleb and Emily commented during their most recent photography session at the Hotel del Coronado that we have done photos there when each of their children was a baby. Their brand-new little boy did a great job of bearing with the breezy weather, and the girls even let me braid their hair when it became obvious that wearing it down was not going to work with the wind. I loved catching their spinning and ballerina moves on the glassy shore! We all pushed through the weather obstacles, and I’m excited about this latest batch of beach photos for a very special family.
