La Jolla Photographer | San Diego Beach Family Portraits

A lonnnnnng time ago, practically another LIFE ago, I did a Groupon deal. Back when Groupon was ONE deal per city for 24 hours. I sold 760, one hour photo shoots at a price point of $49. I only got to keep half.

I was INSANE. The whole thing was insane. I had my poor husband (only a boyfriend back then!) frantically emailing beside me; we spent about 12 hours straight in my mom’s office that day just trying to deal with the influx of people wanting to book sessions. That year was absolutely nuts. I put like 50k+ on my car driving all over the county in any given day, sometimes doing 4-5 shoots in ONE day.

The even CRAZIER part of it, is some of the people who spent less than $50 on my Groupon that day, have become my most loyal, amazing, and favorite customers!! I seriously have people who have come to me every single year, sometimes multiple times a year, since that Groupon (which was in 2010, by the way!). Every time I get to do a shoot with a Groupon client, it makes the whole crazy year (that’s how long the deal was good for) totally worth it.

These guys are no exception! I did their first sessions when these kids were TINY, and I absolutely loved seeing them again! We chose La Jolla Cove as our location, as we LOVE the variety it provides (and it’s dog-friendly!). Check out our session below!

Montevalle Park Family & Child Portraits | Chula Vista Family Photographer

Where to even begin with this one?! This sweet little one is Mia, and she’s just the most precious thing ever! Let me just say I’m SO happy I have a little girl of my own, because if I didn’t, I’d have MAJOR baby fever! I’ve known her mama for gosh… like 22+ years or something NUTS like that; we used to be in dance class & drill team together when I was young! It was so awesome to see these guys & take family photos at Montevalle Park in Chula Vista, one of my favorite places!
