The Gorgeous Smith Family! | San Diego Family Photographer

Can we say “gorgeous family”??  I had such an easy time editing this session, merely because when the entire family knows how to work the camera, you get magic! Once in awhile we have a session where we sit back and say, “That was delightfully easy on us!” and this was that session!

Taylor and Lauren, their two beautiful daughters, had so much poise and grace, I was truly impressed.  Such a sweet, fun, loving family, and we were truly thankful to be a part of their day!

Thank you, Smith Family, for making our week!

 

Stearns {San Diego Family Photographer}

Meet the Stearns family.  These girls just had their birthdays in March, so we celebrated with a family session!  Annabelle, who just turned 4, was a wonderful host when I arrived!  She showed me the “cave” in their gorgeous backyard and some of the yummy vegetables that she is helping to grow. Sunny, who is typically shy, just turned 2 and wanted to do everything her big sister did!  She followed us around and showed me her Peter Rabbit stuffed animal- this rabbit was literally as big as she was!  They even wanted to pose with their chickens for me!  I had so much fun photographing this family and look forward to visiting with them again soon!

Brotherly Love..at least until they get a bit older {Newborn photography San Diego}

These two lovable brothers definitely acted their ages :)  Big brother, Laith, had so much energy and moved as much as possible! He was super proud to show off his riding skills on his bike as well his dad’s skate board. Holding his brand new baby brother, Kyse, was a little intimidating but he was sweetly cautious with this precious little bundle!

Kyse was the most camera-friendly baby I’ve seen in a long while! Wide-eyed and curious about his surroundings, this little one was definitely a model newborn!

Congratulations to mom and dad on their beautiful family and I do hope the boys give you some much needed rest soon!

Mischler {Newborn Family Portraits San Diego}

I’m excited to share this family’s newborn session – it was one of those rare days where everything just seems to come together.  Meet Callan, the newest Mischler family member – here he was a mere 3 weeks old!  (And what a sweet pea he was to photograph.)  Little Willa is the other starring cast member here, looking just as cute as can be next to her new baby brother. I first took Willa’s picture at a Halloween event, and I was honored when Amy contacted me for a full family session at her father’s gorgeous home.  The setting, combined with the coordinated clothing, and rich shades of red created a natural look that I am just in love with!

Full House! {Family Grandparent Portraits San Diego}

Sisters and cousins, and grandparents, oh my (and at least two of each)! This extended family session was such a joy to photograph (thanks to the coordinating efforts of one proud grandfather!).  Even the sky was conspiring to make the day great and held back the rain storm that was threatening :).

The two toddling cousins you see below were definitely the center of attention in the family.  When he wasn’t dancing to his grandmother’s singing, Ben (the older one) kept running back to energetically pedal his bike. Can you imagine he preferred it to having his photo taken?!   And Will, who just turned 1 year old (happy birthday!), wanted to be anywhere Ben was!   We just couldn’t get a synchronized smile – one would start crying and then the other cousin would look over and start crying – it was just so sympathetic and cute.  The last photos of them were so funny with the alternate crying and comforting – I couldn’t stop giggling while they were doing it, and the giggles came back while editing them after the session!
