La Jolla Family Photographer | Scripps Pier, San Diego

There’s something really special about photo shoots with older (adult) children. The dynamic is obviously totally different from sessions with toddlers, and while I LOVE getting littles to smile, I also love the relaxed, laid back nature of a family shoot with older “kids”! These guys are in town from all over, and decided to do their family portrait session at the Scripps Pier in La Jolla, as it’s a sentimental spot for them. I was so happy to oblige, as it’s one of my favorite spots when conditions allow (low tide + sunset + <3) and they lined up perfectly for this shoot!

San Diego Family Photos | La Jolla Cove

I’m not going to lie; La Jolla Cove in the summertime is a bit hectic. The beaches tend to be crowded & parking is tough. But when these guys fell in love with it, I just couldn’t say no, and I’m so glad I didn’t! It was the perfect spot for their family photos with their almost 2 year old. We loved the beach, cliffs, rocks, and grass backdrops & with a little Photoshop work, we had the beach to ourselves! :)
