Summer Lovin’ on the Beach

0001 Family Photographer San Diego natural lifestyle

We had so much fun with this beautiful family who comes to San Diego every Summer for vacation from the heat in Arizona.  We had the privilege of photographing them here on this same beach during their visit last year and were thrilled when they contacted us again this year.  We shot on the same beach, but this shoot was totally different. With two energetic young boys, sand, water and sun…you are bound to have some fun. Throw in a giant red balloon, and you have an epic evening on the beach!0002 Family Photographer San Diego natural lifestyle

This is the way I would want to remember my childhood Summers.

There was not a lot of posing on this shoot.  There was a lot of laughter.

0004 Family Photographer San Diego natural lifestyle

Happy.

0005 Family Photographer San Diego natural lifestyle

What I love about this family shot (besides the huge, genuine smiles on their faces), is that their feet are covered in sand.  These parents were not worried about the kids staying clean.  They wanted them to have fun.  Having this attitude on a shoot will guarantee that your photos will capture joy and happiness, which in our minds is the point of documenting this time of your life.

It’s not a party unless it ends with some mud flinging.

Dad got splattered, but was totally ok with it.

Beautiful San Diego Mountain Wedding

San Diego Wedding Photographer Photojournalistic 0001What a treat it was to photograph a wedding in our neighborhood!  Kelsey and Charlie tied the knot on the top of Mount Helix on a warm Summer day. The sun was shining and butterflies were flying across the blue skies that overlooked San Diego, with the mountains and ocean in the distance. It was just gorgeous.  The vibe was natural, relaxed and fun, as you will see in the following images.  This day was about having a good time and soaking up the happy vibes :-)  Much fun was had by all…it was the perfect start to a beautiful marriage.
