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!

Scentco

This June session was full of adorable kids and fabulous scent-filled products from Scentco, and Santee company that focuses on scented stationary, gifts and toys. We met near the Scentco offices in Santee where the kids played with the scented plushies, backpack buddies, pens, markers and more branded with fun characters from Disney, Nickelodeon and Marvel.

Lyra, Zoey and Bailey were natural models as the showcased the toys, Smarkers and Smencils.

San Diego Portraits: My family

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. familyIsiorhos Esan

 

 

First Birthday Portraits at Mission Trails

Meet Emma! She had her first birthday in March. Her portrait session was scheduled in April, but with chilly temps and rain in the forecast, Emma’s mom Stephanie and I decided to postpone the shoot. Fast forward about a month… Emma has learned to walk! This little doll wanted to explore every nook at Mission Trails and her parents and I just followed along.

Happy Birthday Emma! Here’s to many more wonderful years!

San Diego Family Portraits with the Esgates

I had the pleasure of meeting the Esgates in January when Lorraine was 8-months pregnant with their first child. In September, I met their 6-month-old son during family portraits at a San Diego harbor before taking the session to their home and baby C’s beautiful nursery. The love this family has for their new little man is evidenced in the looks and smiles he often receives from mom and dad.

Congratulations Esgate family! I look forward to working with you as baby C reaches new milestones.
