Newborn Baby Mael | San Diego Wedding + Portrait Photographers

Once again we had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful family, and this time with newborn baby Maël. (love that name!) We wanted the feel of this newborn baby and family session to have a natural, organic feel, with tender closeups of this two week old baby boy. The interaction between baby Maël and his parents and big sister was so sweet, and we know that these are going to be such great memories for the family to look back on!

La Jolla Cove Family Portraits :: Brittany, Fred + Addison

It was such a pleasure working with this lovely family again.  Lovin’ the outfit choices as always – I’m sure this is mommy’s doing.  I dig the vintage feel and how all the colors go so well together.  Really enjoyed working with Little Addison, so many of the cute little things she does remind me of the stages our little ones are going through right now – so sweet.

Halloween 2010

Halloween 2010 -Dressing up our 2 1/2 and 4 year old was so much fun!   Zion, was our little 70′s man, and thrift store finds, with a bit of help from daddy’s closet (this is actually Deshun’s tie) brought this costume together.  Zion’s still a bit camera shy so we had to do most of his shots candidly.  He probably wouldn’t mind taking a few shots if he didn’t want to play on the playground so bad, but he’s definitely not one to sit and pose in front of the camera like his older sister. Delaini is our cute little tinker fairy – such a trip seeing her as a blonde!  Makeup done by mommy, she was so good sitting still while I glittered her up!  We spent our evening volunteering by shooting costume shots in our photo station for Family Fellowship Church’s annual Fun Fest.  The church mails these snapshots to attendees as a way of reaching out to the community.  Grandma came to help out and watch the kids play games, get their faces painted, eat carnival food, and jump in the kiddie bouncers to their hearts content, and needless to say, they slept amazingly last night.

Bates Nut Farm Family Portraits :: Sisters- Cierra, Kayla, Cheyanne + Cassidy

Fun fun fun, another awesome shoot with these cute little girls.  This is my third year photographing Cierra, Kayla, and Cheyanne, and this time we had another addition, their baby sister Cassidy.  She loves the camera just like her sisters!  Bates Nut Farm was the perfect backdrop with those humongous pumpkins, corn stalks, bales of hay, wheelbarrows, and overgrown sunflowers.  Their stylist (mom), put flowers in their hair, rope for a belt, and bare feet to give them a relaxed, rustic but fun look.  I love the photo session locations their mom picks for the girls each year.  Click here to see last year’s session that took place with the girls’ horse at their stable, and included chaps, polo shirts and riding boots.
