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! :)

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!

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!

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!
