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!

San Diego family portraits: The Hunters

The Hunters are familiar faces on this blog. I met this loving family three years ago during a session in Balboa Park, and in January, we create family portraits at Torry Pines when Amber’s mother was in town. This year, I had the honor of photographing the Hunters in the backyard of their brand new house!

San Diego Wedding: J & J

Meet Jodi and James. This gorgeous couple got married on a beautiful September Saturday in San Diego at Liberty Station. I met Jodi a few years ago when we worked together. She was intelligent, beautiful and kind and I was honored to call her a friend. When she asked if I would photograph her wedding, I was touched. Their intimate ceremony was officiated by Jodi’s father and about a dozen family members gathered to witness the union.

Congratulations J&J! Praying a lifetime of blessings and love on you both. 

San Diego family portraits: Lake Chollas

Meet the Campbell family. Kimberly was one of the winners of a silent auction at College Avenue Baptist Preschool where her daughters and my son attend. Among the prizes she and her mother won, was a session with me. We met on an overcast Saturday morning in August where I met her darling daughters, Claire and Hanna, and her husband Rob. This beautiful family was so easy and fun to work with and their connection with each other was effortless.y photographed

Thank you Campbell family for spending a Saturday morning with me!
