Hotel Del Coronado Family Photo Shoot | San Diego Family Photographer

As much as I adore working with little kids, there’s definitely something super fun about getting to work with a family of all adults! The same dynamics are there… siblings messing with each other, parents reeling everyone in a bit, etc, but they’re so fun to witness. I loved this Coronado Beach shoot!

Rose Garden Mini Session | San Diego Maternity Photographer

The first of many rose garden mini sessions is here! This is a highly anticipated post, as I’m absolutely obsessed with this location & so pleased with these images!

First up is Addie’s maternity session! Addie is a friend of mine who I’ve known for over a decade now! Her sister & I are very close friends, and Addie is one of those people who I’m randomly connected to via like, 10 different people, so our paths were bound to cross at some point!

She’s expecting her THIRD little one next month, so I’m so happy we could meet up at the Inez Grant Parker Memorial Rose Garden in Balboa Park for her maternity photo shoot before he arrives!

If you LOVE these images, I do have a couple openings for this same location this coming Sunday 7/7 for a limited edition mini session. Don’t hesitate to contact me for details & to book!

Check out Addie’s stunning maternity session below!

I think the biggest question I get when helping families plan their sessions is “What should we wear?” The answer is simple, but varies from family to family. Here are my top tips for dressing your family for your family photo session.


San Diego Extended Family Session | Balboa Park Family Photos

I really really love when families book me for extended family portrait sessions! It’s so special for me to capture the relationship & bond between generations, and it’s one of my favorite types of shoots to do!

The Yan Family chose Balboa Park as their backdrop for their large family portraits! We had 3 generations present & were celebrating grandma & grandpa’s anniversary! We started near the Prado Restaurant & worked our way around some of the more “hidden” spots of the park. The two kiddos were absolutely adorable & they both did so well during our shoot!

Crystal Pier Family Portraits | Pacific Beach, San Diego, CA

When I first started my business in 2009, I did a lonnnnnng scouting trip where I searched high & low for the best beach locations in San Diego for family portraits. The Crystal Pier in PB definitely is at the top of the list! The light here is beautiful when it’s sunny, but also beautiful when it’s overcast. If you follow my work, you know backlit sunset shots are my jam, but I love this family so much & we embraced the June gloom… and it paid off! Check out how adorable they are!
