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.

San Diego Portraits: The Contreras Family

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!
