2017 Wrap up

As 2017 ends, I want to take some time to say thank you to all the families and individuals who have allowed me to take part in their lives. I know that it takes trust to invite someone into your world and express yourself on camera, and for that privilege, I am truly honored.

This year has been quite busy as I’ve worked a full-time job with an editing company for professional wedding photographers, gotten involved with a new church and picked up some freelance photography jobs alongside my work with Ese Esan Photography. Because of this, and the need to spend quality time with my husband and son, my blogging has been a bit neglected this year.

I didn’t want to end the year without showcasing some of the incredible families I’ve had the honor of photographing year after year. Please know that you are all appreciated!

La Jolla family portraits: The Grayots

Meet the Grayots. If you notice a similarity to another family featured recently on the blog, it’s because Azure is Seneca‘s sister! I met this sweet lady on a December Monday along with her husband, Delon, and their 5-month-old puppy Chanel. We roamed the park in La Jolla before heading down to the beach to watch Chanel experience her first time on sand.

San Diego family portraits at Mission Trails

One of my favorite things about being a photographer is capturing life’s moments. Whether it’s the arrival of a new baby, a marriage or just watching children grow, it’s always a blessing and an honor to be invited to document these moments.

Seneca and I met back in 2015 when she was pregnant with her second daughter. We did a family session with Seneca, her husband Blake and their daughters Bronte and Chapel at Balboa Park that Fall. This year, we met at Mission Trails where, we finished our session just before we got one of our few San Diego rainstorms.

Newborn portraits in Chula Vista: The Johnsons

You’ve met Declan a few times over the last year or so. The first time was during a family session in 2015. This year, Declan’s little sister Ella joined the family! I met this sweet girl the week she was born and both she and her big brother did a great job during the session!
