A mother and daughter's love and connection is, simply priceless.
It was such a lovely evening watching this mother and daughter giggle, play and enjoy one another while taking ever lasting time capsules in the setting of the sun at the Sunset Cliffs in San Diego!
This was the second of my two recent mini sessions and I have to say, it's extremely difficult to shoot for only a half hour as I love spending time with and getting to know these new souls.
Thank you for allowing me to share this evening with you
and bring to life the moments that were wrapped within!
One of my favorite things when meeting new clients is learning about their life experiences
and what brought them to that very moment.
After meeting this lovely wife and mother via email, it was so delightful meeting her, her husband and their daughter, finding out more about them as we played
in a few of my favorite spots at Leo Carrillo Ranch in Carlsbad, California.
We spent a short amount of time together,
but I quickly found myself laughing at this dedicated dad's monkey impersonation.
While this little soul was taking portraits by herself,
her dad so excitedly jumped back and forth making monkey sounds and faces, getting her to giggle!
It was so classic and oh so perfect.
Thank you so much for sharing your sunny Saturday morning with me
and allowing me to spend time with your family to create these ever lasting time capsules!
The Mayeda-Nicols have a tradition of taking their family portraits at their home in Huntington Beach.
So, of course, we had to honor this family tradition.
We spent a beautiful sunny Sunday morning at the house.
First, watching this beauty play songs on the guitar. Then, engaging in the play of Lego's.
And finally, outside in the back and front yards.
It was a really unique experience to photograph people in their own environment, their own home, the very place they live and breath in throughout their days.
Thank you for allowing me to share the morning with you and create these ever lasting time capsules!
