0001It seems like yesterday that we were photographing Leigh and Scott cruising in their Pontiac GTO around Del Mar, then tying the knot in St. Peter’s Church.  Now they have begun a new adventure with their beautiful little girl, Elizabeth Katherine, and we have a feeling that this will be the sweetest ride yet.  Congratulations Leigh and Scott!000200030004000500060007

0001 San Diego natrural newborn photographyMeet Colin.  He’s a super chill little munchkin who makes parenting a newborn look easy!  This little guy pretty much slept throughout the entire shoot, except for a few breaks to yawn or scrunch up his face.  We couldn’t be happier for Sean and Leslie, whose wedding we photographed over 6 years ago.  As you can see below, they are both in awe of this beautiful little human being.  Hopefully Colin wasn’t up all night with energy after his relaxing and rejuvenating photo shoot!0002 San Diego natrural newborn photography0003 San Diego natrural newborn photographyShe is in love.0004 San Diego natrural newborn photographyHe is in awe.0005 San Diego natrural newborn photographyBeing adorable is exhausting.0006 San Diego natrural newborn photographyI see a smile!0007 San Diego natrural newborn photographyOne of the few glimpses we got of those beautiful eyes.0008 San Diego natrural newborn photographyThis is where Sean and Leslie probably spend many a night!

0001 San Diego family photographer natural documentary-2What an unforgettable shoot. Brooke and Kyle are an amazing couple who we first met in 2010 to photograph their engagement session on their family’s property in Julian.  We went on to shoot their incredible wedding (again on the property) the next year.  Five years later, they contact us to let us know they are expecting a baby girl and would like us to take some pictures. This is one of my favorite things about our job; to get to document numerous milestones in the life of a family.  We are so lucky!

All three shoots took place on family property.  The first shoot was on the grandparents property, the wedding was at the parents home, and this maternity session took place right near Brooke and Kyle’s new property.  All shoots involved a stop at Brooke’s childhood home, and the tree you see above (up on the hill) was a focal point that Rick and I were repeatedly drawn to.  Now, Brooke and Kyle have photos near this beautiful tree over a five year period; spanning their falling in love, getting married, and starting a family. I love the symbolism of the tree.

It made for some beautiful, saturated colors and a mystical ambiance.  Thanks for being such a trooper, Brooke! 0003 San Diego family photographer natural documentary0004 San Diego family photographer natural documentaryPeople can get wet.

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.

Tickle monster attacks.

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

Dad got splattered, but was totally ok with it.

0002 San Diego candid family photographerLiam celebrated his first birthday in style with balloons and a red wagon in the woods. We were so excited for this shoot because we have been there for some of Liam’s big milestone’s already… We photographed his parents when they were expecting and we also got to photograph sweet Little Liam during his first week of life, when he fit in a basket. Now he isn’t so little anymore! He’s got a big personality and pretty much ‘worked it’ for the whole session.  Lucky us! We are so looking forward to seeing this little guy grow through the years…
