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!
It’s been about two years since I first met Stacy and her family during their San Diego vacation. This year, instead of her parents, the Phillips family spent the week in a vacation house on Mission Beach with his parents and sister.
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.
If these faces look familiar, it may be because I photographed them a year ago at Balboa Park. We met this year at Mission Trails where I was about to witness just how much Brandon and Deagan had grown since our last session. I also go to see Shannon’s beautiful new hair color. It was such a pleasure working with the Houser family again, and I hope we can continue the tradition.
Meet the George family. I met Alex and Shannon early on a Saturday morning in April at La Jolla Cove where we explored different areas of the park. Mom and dad were celebrating daughter, Harper’s first birthday with a portrait session.
Happy birthday, Harper, and here’s to a wonderful year!
Meet the Lee Family. They were vacationing in San Diego from Chapel Hill, North Carolina and decided that some family portraits were in order. We met at Balboa Park about an hour before sunset and worked our way around the rose garden, Bea Fountain and the butterfly garden before ending the session with the setting sun.
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.
