Meet the Contreras Family. Andrea, Carlos and little Emma Rose and I got together on a Saturday in July for some family and first birthday portraits. Emma Rose was a champ as we dealt with the warm weather and bugs at Mission Trails and mom and dad were adorable with their coordinated outfits. At the end of the session, I found out that one of the reasons Andrea chose me was because my About Me section mentioned that I am a Christian. It felt great to connect over our beliefs in a casual way.
Here’s to a very happy birthday Emma Rose, and I know I’ll have the opportunity to work with the Contreras family again!
Meet the George family. I first had the pleasure of photographing Alex, Shannon and their beautiful daughter, Harper in April for Harper’s 1st birthday portraits. Then in July, I drove to San Clemente to photograph the Georges during their annual family vacation. This lovely family (Alex, Shannon, Harper, Alex’s brother Ben, his wife, Sara, and their son, Cal) were so much fun to work with, and Alex and Ben’s parents even jumped in for a few portraits!
Thank you George family for letting me play a role in your annual vacation, and I can’t wait to work with you all again soon!
July was a super busy month and not just in terms of work. My mother-in-law and father-in-law flew in from Texas to celebrate my husband’s 40th birthday; my brother and his wife and their son flew in from Portland for a few days, and my parents were here from Georgia for another few days. There was some overlap in each of the visits, which was great because both sets of parents and my brother and sister-in-law were able to see one another. I was also able to get each of the groups out for some family portraits in the park.
Meet Kevin. We met for a headshot session at Balboa Park. The other half of Kevin’s team works out of New York.
